Cousin Jack Chords

   
                           Steve Knightley : Cousin Jack
Capo on 2nd fret.


Into:- Em  C  (D)(C shoved up 2 frets)  C all repeated



 Em                      C

This land is bar-ren and bro-ken,
 D                           G     D

Scarred like the face of the moon
 Em                      Bm

Our tongue is no lon-ger spo-ken
 C                            D

And the Towns all a-round face ruin
 Em                       C

Will there be work in New Bruns-wick?
 D                       G    D

Will I find gold in the Cape?
 Em                       Bm

If I tun-nel way down to Aus-tra-lia
 C                   D

Oh will I ever escape.

Chorus:-
 G                        D
Where there's a mine or a hole in the ground
 Em                         C
That's what I'm heading for that's where I'm bound
   D                      G        D         C    E/G#
So look for me under the lode and inside the vain,
  G                            D                           
where the copper the clay the arsnic and tin
 Em                    C
Run in your blood and under your skin
  D                    G          D          C
I'll leave the county behind I'm not coming back
    (D)       C           Em
Oh follow me down cousin Jack.


The soil was to poor to make Eden,

Granite and sea left no choice

Though visions of heaven sustained us,

When John Wesley gave us a voice

Did Joseph once come to St Michaels Mount

Two thousand years pass in a dream

When you're working your way in the darkness,

Deep in the heart of the seam.


Chorus:- G                        D
Where there's a mine or a hole in the ground
 Em                         C
That's what I'm heading for that's where I'm bound
   D                      G        D         C    E/G#
So look for me under the lode and inside the vain,
  G                            D                           
where the copper the clay the arsnic and tin
 Em                    C
Run in your blood and under your skin
  D                    G          D          C
I'll leave the county behind I'm not coming back
    (D)       C           Em
Oh follow me down cousin Jack.


I dream of a bridge on the Tamar

It opens us up to the East

And the English they live in our houses

The Spanish fish in these seas
