[Intro]

G


[Verse 1]

G                      C  G         
I'll close my eyes and listen 
G/F# Em                 C 
to   you, the corn come out. 
          Am       Em               C
Don't you hear the stars, they glisten, 
   G     D      C     C/B  C/A
as we go in and out. 
G                            C  G
Down where the trees grow together, 
G/F#    Em                       C
and the western path comes to an end 
           Am      Em              C  
to see the sign it says 'clear weather', 
     G          D         C
I'll meet you tonight, my friend. 


[Chorus]

                 G                  C
Will the corn be growing a little tonight, 
     G                      D
as I wait in the fields for you? 
    C          D            Em      C
Who knows what grows in the morning light 
            G        D      G
when we can feel the watery dew? 


[Verse 2]

G                             C G 
I just can't be there with no other, 
G/F# Em                       C
I    know those hills will be true, 
 Am          Em            C 
away from my sister and brother, 
    G                D          C
and down through the grasses so blue. 
G                    C   G
The air is sweet and steady 
G/F# Em                   C
and  flowers bloom out of sight, 
  Am       Em         C
I know the sky is ready, 
    G             D      C
come meet me down here tonight. 


[Chorus]

                 G                  C
Will the corn be growing a little tonight, 
     G                      D
as I wait in the fields for you? 
    C          D            Em      C
Who knows what grows in the morning light 
            G        D      G       C  G
when we can feel the watery dew?
