G C Am D 

Verse 
G 
The wind blew from the fenland 
           D 
'cross the big November sky 
 G               C        G 
wind chimes sang uncertainly 
        D         G 
all the camp was quiet 

       Em 
I look hard to the horizon 
      C               G 
maybe soon they would come 

with their suits and their papers 
   D 
to move my people on 

  G             C  G 
I saw a skylark rising 
D 
from an empty field 
G               C          G 
another home we could have made 
        D               G       D 
another home we have to leave 

    Em 
I'm tired of their permissions 
   C                  G 
to use what should be free 

tired of heavy voices 
        D 
telling me what I should be 

Chorus 
D                 Em 
if I fall bury me standing 
                            C 
if I fall won't you bury me deep? 

I will not fade 
           G 
I will not sleep 

Instrumental 
G C Am D 

Verse 
    G                  C  G 
the leaves of life are driven 
     D 
ever since this world began 
        G                   C        G 
and the leaves of life have blown me round 

more than any woman can 

             Em 
what I can't bear to remember 
                C        G 
is what I can't bear to forget 
    D 
the road goes on forever 

our time's not over yet 

Chorus 
D                 Em 
if I fall bury me standing 
                            C 
if I fall won’t you bury me deep? 

I will not fade 
           G 
I will not sleep 

Instrumental 
G C Am D 

Chorus 
D                 Em 
if I fall bury me standing 
                            C 
if I fall won’t you bury me deep? 

I will not fade 
           G 
I will not sleep 

D                 Em 
if I fall bury me standing 
                            C 
if I fall won’t you bury me deep? 

I will not fade 
           G 
I will not sleep
