The Foxfire Suite
John Denver (klr)

Spring is alive-

[D] - [G] - [D] [G] - [A]
[D] - [G] - [D] [G] - [A] - [D]
[D] Spring is alive in [G] Caro [D] lina
Deep in the forest where the [G] foxfire [A] glows
[D] High on a mountain [G] down in a [D] holler
Thunder and lightning [G] so [A] it [D] goes

[G] Over a hundred years ago we came to Carolina
Far across the water it's a [D] long hard road
With [G] little more than courage we came seeking independence
A little less then nothin' is a [D] heavy load
From the [G] heather to the highlands we have found the Smokie
mountains
Hard work and simple ways and [D] life is good , [A] life is good

[D] Spring is alive in [G] Caro [D] lina
Deep in the forest where the [G] foxfire [A] glows
[D] High on a mountain [G] down in a [D] holler
Thunder and lightning [G] so [A] it [D] goes
[G] - - [D] - [G] - - [D]- [G] - - [D] - [A]

You Are-

[D] - - [G] - [D]
[D] - - [Em] - [A]
[D] You are every morning sunrise
[G] You are every [D] rain
[D] You are every peal of laughter
[Em] You are every [A] cry of pain

[D] You are all the summer flowers
[G] You are all the falling [D] leaves
[D] You are everyone who rejoices
[Em] You are everyone who [A] grieves

[D] You are all my unknown secrets
[G] You are all my hiddens [D] fears
[D] You are known in lover's kisses
[Em] You are seen in [A] childhood tears

[D] You are where the stars are shining
[G] You are where the rainbow [D] ends
[D] You are why the war is over
[Em] You are how the [A] peace begins
[D] - - [G] - [D]
[D] - - [Em] - [A]

Whisper the wind-

[D] - -
[D] Whisper the wind [G] over the [D] water
Whisper the wind [G] all through the [D] night
Whisper the wind [G] along the [D] canyon
Whisper the wind [A] into the [D] light

Whisper the wind [G] brothers and [D] sisters
Whipser the wind [G] all the [D] same
Whisper the wind [G] love one [D] another
Whisper the wind [A] your precious [D] name
*instrumental play the chords to whisper the wind*

Spring Is Alive (reprise)

[D] - [G] - [D] [G] - [A]

[D] - [G] - [D] [G] - [A]
[D] - [G] - [D] [G] - [A] - [D]
[D] Spring is alive in [G] Caro [D] lina
Deep in the forest where the [G] foxfire [A] glows
[D] High on a mountain [G] down in a [D] holler
Thunder and lightning [G] so [A] it [D] goes

[D] Spring is alive in [G] Caro [D] lina
Deep in the forest where the [G] foxfire [A] glows
[D] High on a mountain [G] down in a [D] holler
Thunder and lightning [G] so [A] it [D] goes
