Cmaj7   F   Am(2)  Em   F

Verse 1
=======

Cmaj7                        F
As I walked out one summer's morn
      Am(2)               Em        F
Saw a scarecrow tied to a pole in a field of corn
    Cmaj7                           F
His coat was black and his head was bare
         Am(2)              Em                     F
When the wind shook him the crows took up into the air

Refrain 1
=========

Am             G      /Gb      Em
Ah, would you lay me down and love me
Am            G      /Gb      Em             F
Ah, would you lay me down and love me if you could
Cmaj7                                     F
But you're only a bag of rags in an over-all
         Am(2)              Em                     F
That the wind sways and the crows fly away and the corn grows tall

Verse 2
=======

Cmaj7                         F
As I walked out on a winter's day
       Am(2)            Em               F
Saw an old man hanging from a pole in a field of clay
    Cmaj7                           F
His coat was gone and his head hung low
         Am(2)         Em                    F
Till the wind flung it up to look, wrung his neck and let it go

Refrain 2
=========

Am             G      /Gb      Em
How could you lay me down and love me
Am            G      /Gb      Em      F
How could you lay me down and love me now
Cmaj7                                     F
For you're only a bag of bones in an overall
         Am(2)              Em                       F
That the wind blows and the kids throw stones at the thing on the pole

Verse 3
=======

Cmaj7                           F
As I walked out one fine spring day
    Am(2)                          Em                      F
Saw twelve jolly guards sticked out in the blue and the gold so gay
   Cmaj7                           F
Onto a stake they tied a child new-born
         Am(2)                   Em                       F
Then the bells were rung and the songs were sung and they sold their corn

Refrain 3
=========

Am           G      /Gb      Em
Now you can lay me down and love me
Am          G      /Gb      Em             F
Now you can lay me down and love me if you will
Cmaj7                                     F
But you're only a bag of rags in an over-all
        Am(2)             Em                   F
But the wind blew and the sun shone to and the corn grew tall

Saw a scarecrow tied to a pole in a field of corn
