A Letter to Tom
Written by John Duffey



Chords


Song

1.

I wandered by the village Tom, I sat beneath the tree,
Upon the schoolhouse playing ground that sheltered you and me.

chorus 1:

But none are left to greet me Tom and few are left to know,
That played with us upon the green just fifteen years ago.

solo:

2.

The river's running just as still, the willows on its side,
Are larger than they were dear Tom the stream appears less wide.

chorus 2:

But in kneeling down beside the stream dear Tom I startled so,
To see how sadly I am changed since fifteen years ago.

solo:

chorus 3:

But when our time shall come dear Tom and we are called to go,
I hope they'll lay us where we played just fifteen years ago.

coda:

Just fifteen years ago.
