Fmaj7-Em (repeat x2)
Fmaj7 EmThere's a place I've been told, and when I grow old I may go there,
Fmaj7 EmI've been told that my family's bones may lie under the snow there,
C EmAnd with my little bag, and with my little dog,
F GWho sleeps on my chest when he can't find a hole in a log,
Em Fmaj7And when I go, my dog will know
to leave his old fellow and find a new pillow,
Gfar from the chill of the cold acre.
Fmaj7|Em
Fmaj7Now there's a Hillydale here and a Lilydale there
Em Fmaj7where there's joy in the living, in voices that ring in the air
Em CI'd stay there but sooner or later I'd have to go,
Emwhere I don't know,
F Gbut when a dog knows it's on him he doesn't ask why he just goes,
Em FAnd when I go my bones will know,
to pick up and follow the wagon that rolls
Gon the cold acre...
CMy heart is a cold acre,
Emin my chest is a cold acre,
FI don't grow any good anymore though
GI've seeded my soul with
all kinds of love, that it aches so... Fmaj7-Em (repeat x2)
SOLOC-Em-F-G-Em-F--G-
Fmaj7 EmThough I wake from them mouthing they leave me not able to talk,
Fmaj7 EmThese dreams are not nightmares but realms I've been choosing to walk,
C EmWith my little bag, and with my little dog,
F GWho rests on my stomach and barks at the oncoming fog,
Em FO but when I go, with my lot in tow,
Like a vampire carry my piece of the earth
Gfrom the place of my death to the plots of my birth...
CMy heart is a cold acre,
Emin my chest is a cold acre,
FI don't grow any good anymore though
GI've seeded my soul with all kinds of love
Cthat don't grow in a cold acre,
Emnothing grows in a cold acre,
F GI don't know any good anymore from the bad
except there's one that you have and one that you had,
Em FO grow, grow, grow, grow, grow,
GAnd plant me in the only place I know,
That's the Cold Acre. Fmaj7-Em (repeat x8)
