Bill Sullivan Songs about birthdays and/or age (11) Lyr Add: SILVER IN THE STUBBLE (Sydney Carter)^^^ 12 Dec 98

One of my favourites but it hurts a little to sing it these days. It's in the Database. Just type 'STUBBLE'.

(Sydney Carter)

(ACBG) Am G Am / Am G Am / Am G Am G Am G / Am G Am

1. Early in the Morning, Hear the razor roar,
There's silver in the stubble And it wasn't there before.

CHORUS For the leaves are getting greener, And spring is on the way;
Girls are getting prettier And younger every day.

2. Silver in the stubble; Winter in the wood.
Fare you well, you wicked world, I'm going to be good.

3. Time to think of Heaven; Time to think of Hell.
Time to go to church on Sunday, Hark, I hear the bell.

4. But if any girl is willing, She only has to say;
I'll hang my halo on a shelf Until another day.

Note: The song is a bit short and a friend of mine wrote an additional verse which fits beautifully. If anyone's interested I will dig it out.
