C  Bb  Dm

FOne by one, they followed the sun
FOne by one, until there were none
Dm C FTwo by two, to their lovers they flew
Dm C FTwo by two, into the foggy dew
FThree by three, they danced on the sea
FFour by four, they danced on the shore
Dm C FFive by five, they tried to survive
Dm C FSix by six, they were playing with tricks

FHow many of their brothers and sisters lingered in jail?
Bb How much poison did they inhale?
F C How many black cats crossed their trail?
FSeven by seven, they headed for heaven
FEight by eight, they got to the gate
Dm C FNine by nine, they drank the wine
Dm C FTen by ten, they drank it a-gain
