 "Village Green" (Davies)
  From "The Kinks are the Village Green Preservation Society"(1968)

  This haunting tune was recorded in November of 1966,
  but not released til two years later. Ray has a capo 
  on the third fret of his Framus 12 string, allowing the 
  chorus's chromatic descent A la SUNNY AFTERNOON.

 Intro: Am Dm |G  C|F Dm|Em Am|  X1

 Am (x02210@1)        Dm (xx0231@1)Out in the country
  G (320003@1)              C (x32010@1)     F (133211@1)          Dm (xx0231@1)Far from all the soot and noise of the city
  Em (022000@1)              Am (x02210@1)There's a village green, oh 
  Am (x02210@1)         Dm (xx0231@1) It's been a long time
 G (320003@1)               C (x32010@1)         F (133211@1)             Dm (xx0231@1)Since I last set eyes on the church with the steeple
 Em (022000@1)        Am (x02210@1)Down by the village green 
  Am (x02210@1)     Dm (xx0231@1) Ah la la la la

  G (320003@1)          C (x32010@1)               F (133211@1) Dm (xx0231@1)'Twas there I met a girl called Daisy
       Em (022000@1)                Am (x02210@1)And kissed her by the old oak tree 
 Am (x02210@1)     Dm (xx0231@1)Ah la la la la
 G (320003@1)         C (x32010@1)            F (133211@1)       Dm (xx0231@1)Although I loved my Daisy, I sought fame
     Em (022000@1)           Am (x02210@1)And so I left the village green 


 Dm (xx0231@1)       Dm/c#        Dm/C (030231@1)        Dm/b
 I miss the village green, And all the simple people 
 Am (x02210@1)       Am/g#      Am/G (302210@1)        Am/F# (202210@1)I miss the village green, The church, the clock, the steeple 
   B7 (x21202@1)                   E (022100@1)I miss the morning dew, fresh air and Sunday school 

 And now all the houses are rare antiquities 
 American tourists flock to see the village green 
 They snap their photographs and say "Gor' darn it
 Isn't it a pretty scene?"
 And Daisy's married Tom the grocer boy
 And now he owns a grocery 


 And I will return there
 And I'll see Daisy
 And we'll sip tea and laugh
 And talk about the village green 

 Am (x02210@1)     Dm (xx0231@1)   G (320003@1)C (x32010@1)La la la la la (oooh)
 F (133211@1)      Dm (xx0231@1)      Em (022000@1)            Am (x02210@1)We will laugh and talk about the village green
