Gm                    D/F#                  Eb
Gulliver's gone to the final command of his master
    F               Bb                             Abmaj7
His watery eyes had washed all the hills with his laughter
        Bb                                                   Ab
And the seasons can change all the light from the grey to the dim
        Gm                         F
But the light in his eyes will see no more bright
       Eb                          D
As the sheep that he locked in the pen

        G                      F/G
There's four feet of ground in front of the barn
       C/G                                      G        C/G
That's sun baked and rain soaked and part of the farm
G                        F/G
But now it lies empty so cold and so bare
C/G                     G                    Gm
Gulliver's gone but his memory lies there

By passing the doors of his life was a stage I remember
And in later years he would cease to bare teeth to a stranger
For sentiment touched him as Cyclamen holds him
And later men came from the town
Who said clear the child this won't take a while
And Gulliver's gone with the dawn

It’s Hay Chewed
