BITTER GREEN   Time: 4/4 (sync)   Tenor: D   Bass: C


INTRO:  1,  1,  2m,  2m


   1             *                     5               *
Up-on the Bitter Green she walked, the hills above the town
3m            *             2m            *
Echoed to her footsteps, as soft as eider-down
3m              *         2m            *
Waiting for her master to kiss away her tears
*                   5
Waiting through the years


CHORUS:
       1           *           4              5
Bitter Green, they called her, walking in the sun
4            5            1    *
Loving ev'ry-one that she met____
       1          *           4              5
Bitter Green they called her, waiting in the sun
4                5               1     *
Waiting for some-one to take her home____

     1            *          5            *
Some say he was a sailor who died away at sea
     3m                        2m            *
Some say he was a prisoner who never was set free
3m            *         2m                *
Lost upon the ocean, he died there in the mist
*             5
Dreaming of a kiss


    1              *                  5                    *
But now the Bitter Green is gone, the hills have turned to rust
      3m            *              2m                *
There comes a weary stranger whose tears fall in the dust
3m              *           2m            *
Kneeling by the churchyard, in the autumn mist
*             5
Dreaming of a kiss
