Class
Location

Sing me a song said my father one night
As we both sat in front of the fire.
Sing me of places where I've never been
Sing me of love and desire,
I don't wish to hear about trouble and war
Or places where battles were lost
Don't sing to me about Flanders or France
Or victories won at great cost.
Chorus
 
Sing me of rivers and forestof gree
Where birds sing their songs to the sky
Sing me of love so unselfish and warm
That will last till the day that I die
That will last till the day that I die
I don't wish to hear about Egypt or Rome
Or Empires long lost in the dust
I don't wish to hear about battles at sea
Or great ships now turning to rust
Don't sing to me about rebels with guns
Or great flyers that fell from the sky
I've heard so many songs about heros and death
There are too many ways you can die
[Repeat Chorus]
 
Sing me a song said my father one night
As we both sat in front of the fire.
Sing me of places where I've never been
Sing me of love and desire
So I sang of my mothere so warm and so kind
With a heart that's as warm as the sun
And I sang of the love that he never would know
Like the love he would find here at home.
[Repeat Chorus]

[D] Sing me of rivers and [G] forests of green

[D] Sing me of love so un -[G]- selfish and [Em] warm

I've heard so many songs about heros and death
There are too many ways you can die

Sing me of love and desire
So I sang of my mothere so warm and so kind
With a heart that's as warm as the sun
And I sang of the love that he never would know
Like the love he would find here at home.
