Basic Chords Offa Rex - The Old Churchyard

D              G            D              G

[Verse 1]
Bm              A          D        A
Come, come with me out to the old churchyard,
    D                            G
I so well know those paths 'neath the soft green sward.
        Bm        A            D          A
Friends slumber in there that we want to regard;
        D                            G
We will trace out their names in the old churchyard.

Bm                        D
mourn not for them, their trials are o'er
    Bm            G            D
And why weep for those who will weep no more?
    Bm            A            D        A
For sweet is their sleep, though cold and hard
      D                    G
Their pillows may be in the old churchyard.

[Verse 2]
  Bm            A          D          A
I know that it's vain when our friends depart
  D                      G
To breathe kind words to a broken heart;
      Bm            A    D      A
And I know that the joy of life is marred
        D                          G
When we follow lost friends to the old churchyard.

    Bm                    D
But were I at rest 'neath yonder tree,
    Bm            G      D
Oh, why would you weep, my friends, for me?
      Bm        A          D          A
I'm so weary, so wayworn, why would you retard
    D                  G
The peace I seek in the old churchyard?

Bm        A          D          A
D                      G

[Verse 3]
Bm                      D
Why weep for me, for I'm anxious to go
        Bm      G          D            A
To that haven of rest where no tears ever flow;
      Bm          A        D          A
And I fear not to enter that dark lonely tomb
          D                    G
Where our Saviour has lain and conquered the gloom.

Bm          A              D              A
D                            G

[Verse 4]
Bm                      D
I rest in the hope that one bright day
Bm            G            D          A
Sunshine will burst to these prisons of clay,
        Bm        A          D            A
And old Gabriel's trumpet and voice of the Lord
    D                      G
Will wake up the dead in the old churchyard

Bm        A        D        A
D                  G
Bm        A        D        A
D                  G
