Offa Rex – The Old Churchyard Chords and Lyrics
Artist : Offa Rex Song : The Old Churchyard [Intro] : D G D G [Verse 1] : Bm A D A Come, come with me out to the old churchyard, D G I so well know those paths 'neath the soft green sward. Bm A D A Friends slumber in there that we want to regard; D G We will trace out their names in the old churchyard. Bm D Mourn not for them, their trials are o'er Bm G D And why weep for those who will weep no more? Bm A D A For sweet is their sleep, though cold and hard D G Their pillows may be in the old churchyard. [Verse 2] : Bm A D A I know that it's vain when our friends depart D G To breathe kind words to a broken heart, Bm A D A And I know that the joy of life is marred D G When we follow lost friends to the old churchyard. Bm D But were I at rest 'neath yonder tree, Bm G D Oh, why would you weep, my friends, for me? Bm A D A I'm so weary, so wayworn, why would you retard D G The peace I seek in the old churchyard? [Break] : Bm A D A D G [Verse 3] : Bm D Why weep for me, for I'm anxious to go Bm G D A To that haven of rest where no tears ever flow, Bm A D A And I fear not to enter that dark lonely tomb D G Where our Saviour has lain and conquered the gloom. [Break] : Bm A D A D G [Verse 4] : Bm D I rest in the hope that one bright day Bm G D A Sunshine will burst to these prisons of clay, Bm A D A And old Gabriel's trumpet and voice of the Lord D G Will wake up the dead in the old churchyard [Outro] : Bm A D A D G Bm A D A D G
