Hi All, I was looking for the lyrics for this song as
I learnt to play it as a kid (I'm 50+ now).
Then I came across a lot of requests for the chord charts.
So here goes my first attempt at writing tablature.


The Worm Song. (played in 3/4 time)

       D                          A7         D
   The earth it was damp with the dew of the dawn

E|----------2--2-------2---2-----0--0------2---2--------|
B|----------3--3-------3---3-----2--2------3---3--------|
G|----------2--2-------2---2-----0--0------2---2--------|

                                A7       D
   And sweet-scented air spread over the lawn.

E|--------3---3---------2--2-------0---0-------2---2----|

G|--------0---0---------2--2-------0---0-------2---2----|

     G              D           A7           D
   A handsome young worm popped out from the ground.

E|---------3----3-----------2--2-----0--0------2---2----|
B|---------0----0-----------3--3-----2--2------3---3----|
G|---------0----0-----------2--2-----0--0------2---2----|

     G                   D         A7       D
   Squeezing up from his hole, he gazed all around.

   Just then as he stared at the sun in the sky
   Another little worm popped up quite nearby.
   Said the first with a squiggle, You're a trim little worm.
   Why not wriggle out here and we'll go for a squirm.

   If you'd only agree to a brief rendezvous
   I would love to surrender my heart just for you.
   I would build you a home and I'd treat you with care
   And happy we'd be as the birds in the air.

   Then the trim little worm gave a shake of its head
   As it sadly replied, I would love to be wed,
   But I fear we can't marry though I know you'd be true,
   For you see, Mr Worm, I'm the other end of you!


I hope this helps. Chenz0
