Chords: C, F, G7
This song can be found on the CD "The World of Benny Hill - Benny Hill
Sings?" which includes 25 of his comedy classics. It also appeared on
an old vinyl recording, "The Golden Hour of Benny Hill."
I [C]rise at six and then I feed the chicks,
And I'm [F]feeling lonesome and [G7]blue,
And when I [C]milk the cow it seems, somehow,
My [F]thoughts keep straying to [G7]you.
And as the [C]horse and I plough the [G7]field nearby,
Your [F]memory I can't e[G7]rase,
For while I [C]walk at the rear of the horse, my dear,
[F]I seem to see your [G7]face.
I'm gonna [C]sow the seed of deep devotion, [F]fertilize it with emotion,
[C]Water it with warm desire and then I'll [G7]reap the harvest of [C]love.
Yes, I was [C]happy as a pig in spite of the way that you looked at me,
When I [F]met you at the village [G7]dance,
But [C]you was in the ladies' excuse me at the time,
I [F]thought I would never have a [G7]chance.
But you [C]let me walk you home a[G7]cross Blatt's Meadow,
And I [F]knew that with you I should be a [G7]hit,
'Cause I [C]got an old cow to get up walk away,
So that you'd have [F]somewhere nice and dry to [G7]sit.
[C]Side by side we will take a ride,
In my [F]horse and buggy one [G7]day,
And when the [C]daylight ends and the night descends,
And my [F]horse'll run out of [G7]hay,
And I will [C]kiss your lips, those [G7]tempting lips,
The [F]only ones that can [G7]thrill me,
And I would [C]hold you tight 'neath the stars so bright,
If the [F]wife ever finds out she'll [G7]kill me.
Chorus to fade
This is one in a series of Benny Hill songs I've learned by ear. Most of
these songs have only three chords which makes it easy figure them out. I
might have missed some chords or put the wrong ones down, but the basic
structure is there at any rate. I welcome any comments, corrections or
suggestions for improvement.
