The March Ditch lyrics and guitar chords, written by Colum Sands with chords by Marc Fahrbach.A March Ditch is a boundary wall or fence between two neighboring properties.

Intro: C-C-G-C   C-C-G-C   G-G-C-C   C-C-G-C   C-C-G-C

 

I (C)sat beside the march ditch when (G)I was very (C)small

I could hear the neighbours working in the (G)field behind the (C)wall

(G)Farmers’ children like ourselves, (C)hungry mouths to feed

And spring was calling from the soil, it’s (G)time to sow the (C)seeds

Spring was calling from the soil, it’s (G)time to sow the (C)seeds

 

I (C)played beside the march ditch when (G)I was four or (C)five

I threshold (???) all the neighbours, it’s (G)good to be a(C)live

The (G)corn was shooting through the soil as (C)we ran to and fro

And people working in the fields (G)watched their children (C)grow

People working in the fields (G)watched their children (C)grow

 

I (C)worked beside the march ditch when (G)I was nine or (C)ten

Like the neigbours’ children, (G)home from school a(C)gain.

But if (G)schooldays separated us be(C)cause of different creeds (???)

Our orders now were all the same, it’s (G)time to pull the (C)weeds

Our orders now were all the same, it’s (G)time to pull the (C)weeds

 

At (C)seventeen the march ditch (G)heard me sing a (C)song

Turning hay on both sides now, was the (G)days were turning (C)long

We (G)had a break in August, (C)theirs was in July

But when one drop of rain would fall we’d (G)all look at the (C)sky

When one drop of rain would fall we’d (G)all look at the sky

 

C-C-G-C   C-C-G-C

 

I (C)sat beside the march ditch when (G)I was twenty-(C)five

My heart was feeling empty as the (G)fields before my (C)eyes

We’d (G)heard it on the radio, a(C)nother senseless death

But when it comes so close to home it (G)chills like winter’s (C)breath

When it comes so close to home it (G)chills like winter’s (C)breath

 

C-C-G-C   C-C-G-C   G-G-C-C   C-C-G-C   C-C-G-C

 

I (C)look across the march ditch and (G)every day I (C)see

Someone on the other side who (G)looks a lot like (C)me

To (G)share this earth between us - (C)how long does it need?

And spring is calling from the soil, it’s (G)time to sow the (C)seeds

Spring is calling from the soil, it’s (G)time to sow the (C)seeds
