               E                            Asus2
September seventeen, for a girl I know, it's Mother's Day
                  E                            Bsus2
Her son has gone alee and that's where he will stay
                    E                       Asus2
Wind on the weather vane, tearing blue eyes, sailor-mean
                    E                Dsus2                   E
As Falstaff sings a sorrowful refrain for a boy in Fiddler's Green

His tiny knotted heart, well, I guess it never worked too good
The timber tore apart and the water gorged the wood
You can hear her whispered prayer for men at masts that always lean
The same wind that move her hair moves her boy through Fiddler's Green

 Ah,  nothing's changed anyway
Asus2 Bsus2
 Ah,  nothing's changed anyway
Asus2 Bsus2     E
 Oh,  anytime today

                  E                                  Asus2
He doesn't know a soul and there's nowhere that he's really been
                    E                                Bsus2
But he won't travel long alone, no, not in Fiddler's Green
                         E                            Asus2
Balloons all filled with rain as children's eyes turn sleepy-mean
                     E                Dsus2                   E
And Falstaff sings a sorrowful refrain for a boy in Fiddler's Green
