The Fox
Standard Tuning (No Capo)

A 
The fox went out on a chilly night 
                          E 
He prayed for the moon to give him light 
A                       D 
For head many a mile to go that night 
A         E           A       E       A
Before he reached the town-o, town-o, town-o 
D                   A              E                    A 
Head many a mile to go that night, before he reached the town-o 
 
 
A 
He ran til he came to the farmers pen 
                             E
The ducks and the geese were kept therein 
A                                   D
He said, a couple of you are gonna grease my chin, 
A        E          A       E       A
Before I leave this town-o, town-o, town-o 
D                              A              E                    A
Said a couple of you are gonna grease my chin, before I leave this town-o 
 
 
A
He grabbed the great goose by the neck 
                    E
And he threw a duck across his back 
A                      D
And he didn't mind the quack, quack 
A                E        A       E       A
And the legs all dangling down-o, down-o, down-o 
D	              A                    E                 A
He didn't mind the quack, quack and the legs all dangling down-o 
 
 
A
The old grey woman jumped out of bed 
                      E
Out of the window she popped her head, 
A                            D
Crying John, John, the great goose is gone 
A              E      A       E       A
And the fox is on the town-o, town-o, town-o 
D                     A                     E             A
John, John, the great goose is gone and the fox is on the town-o 
 
 
A
He ran til he came to his nice warm den 
                                E
And there were the little ones, eight, nine, ten 
A                          D
Sayin Daddy, Daddy, better go back again 
A                E          A       E       A
For it must be a might fine town-o, town-o, town-o 
D             A                    E                   A
Daddy, Daddy, go back again for it must be mighty fine town-o 
 
 
A
The fox and his wife, without any strife 
                        E
Cut up the goose with a fork and a knife 
A                     D
They never had such a supper in their life 
A                   E             A        E        A
And the little ones chewed on the bones-o, bones-o, bones-o 
D                     A
They never had such a supper in their life 
        E                         A
And the little ones chewed on the bones
