Gone to Ground: 

words and music by Tony Chapman (copyriqhted)

 

 

F                                                  Em(with an extra HIGH C )

Your wife wants a new couch, you want a photo room

         Eb6                                D7      

Your kids want the beach, you want your paints to bloom

C#mj7                    C                                 F   

There's a noise outside drowning your inner sound

          Ab   Eb                        Bb2                    F

Your true self has gone to ground

 

You've done your job too long, want to write poetry

Car needs fixing, you want to draw the trees

That puppy once so sweet is a hell hound

Your true self has gone to ground

 

             Gm                Am                    Bb                 C

But its not too late, never too late, even if your ninety-eight

F#                  Ebm            C             C+

You can still turn round fate, and open the gate

 

instrumental over verse

 

Duty blackmails, you drag your feet each day

Coulds, shoulds, whirlpool in your way

Where's that child so young and the joy he'd found

Your true self has gone to ground

Your true self has gone to ground

 

Agh…..(unaccompanied to the end) 

Your true self has gone to ground

Your true self has gone to ground
