[Verse 1]
G                        C            G
Last night in my dreams I was stationed forever
Em                     D            G
On a far little rock in the midst of the sea
C           G
My one chance at life was a ceaseless endeavour
Em                          D          G
To sweep off the waves as they swept over me
[Chorus]
C       G
Oh, life is a toil and love is trouble
D           G
Beauty will fade and riches will flee
C           G
Pleasures may dwindle and prices they double
D              G    C  G    D
And nothing is as nothing should be
[Verse 2]
G                          C           G
There's too much of worriment that goes to the bonnet
Em                       D           G
There's too much of ironing that goes to the shirt
C              G
There's nothing that pays for the time you waste on it
Em                         D           G
There's nothing that lasts but the trouble and dirt
[Chorus]
C       G
Oh, life is a toil and love is trouble
D           G
Beauty will fade and riches will flee
C           G
Pleasures may dwindle and prices they double

And nothing is as nothing should be

[Bridge]
Em                           D
In March it's the mud, it's the slush in December
C                     A7          D
The midsummer breezes are loaded with dust
G                         D        
In fall the leaves litter, a muddy September
Em                     D            G
The wallpaper rots and the candlesticks rust
[Chorus]
N.C.
Oh, life is a toil and love is trouble
Beauty will fade and riches will flee
G                         C           G
Pleasures may dwindle and prices they double
D              G 
And nothing is as nothing should be

Nothing is as nothing should be

Track 7 - Pretty Saro
## NOTE: This song is sung a Capella, there are no chords to this version ##
[Verse 1]
Down in some lone valley, in some lone place
Where the wild birds eschew us all and notes to increase
Farewell pretty Saro, I'll bid you adieu
And think of you often wherever I go
[Verse 2]
Your parents don't like me, so I understand
They want a freeholder who has him some land
I cannot maintain you with silver and gold
Nor buy you the fine things a big house can hold
[Verse 3]
If I were a merchant or could write a fine hand
I'd write you a letter that you'd understand
I'll follow this river wherever it flows
And think of you often wherever I go
And think of pretty Saro wherever I go
==================================================================

G
They'll first appear and then they're gone
[Verse 2]
C
If I'd a known before I courted

And fastened it up with a silver chain

But the State couldn't kill you, Joe Hill, Joe Hill

It never ever could and it never ever will
D            C          G
It never ever could and it never ever will

Track 12 - High, Low And Wide
CAPO: 2nd Fret
[Verse 1]
C
I am but a shadow
F
Cast upon the road
C
And we are all but strangers
F                     G
Bearing a heavy load
[Verse 2]
C
And all these worldly things
F
We won't need anymore
C
You'll only take your place
F                       G
Standing on that shore
[Chorus]
Dm7           F
High, low and wide
C                 G
That's just how big this ocean gets
Dm7               F
Stronger than the tide
C                  G
That's just how hard this journey is
F                       C
You've got to cross it alone
F                       C
You've got to cross it alone
F                       G
You've got to cross it alone
N.C.          C
To get back home
[Verse 3]
The efforts of the sun 
F
Are wasted on the rain
C
There's nothing in this world
F                    G
To take away your pain
[Chorus]
Dm7           F
High, low and wide
C                 G
That's just how big this ocean gets
Dm7               F
Stronger than the tide
C                  G
That's just how hard this journey is
F                       C
You've got to cross it alone
F                       C
You've got to cross it alone
F                       G
You've got to cross it alone
N.C.          Dm7
To get back home
{Instrumental]
Dm7   F   C   G   Dm7   F   C   G
[Bridge]
F                C
If you cross it alone
F                   C
Free then you shall be
Am                D
From the troubles that you know
F       N.C.         C
Oh, we're just sailing to get back home
[Outro]    (repeat 14x and fade to end)
F                       C
You've got to cross it alone

Now I know how Joan of Arc felt 
Am                         C
As the flames rose to her roman nose
Dm          Am      F  G 
And her Hearing Aid started to melt 
[Chorus]
Am        C  Dm  Am        F  G
Bigmouth, la ... bigmouth, la ... 
Am
Bigmouth strikes again
C                Dm
And I've got no right to take my place
Am         F G
With the Human race
