             [Intro]
E  E  E Em  E

[Verse 1]
E
Well, once I was a stone, a many years ago
E                         B           E
Into a pool was thrown, a many years ago
     A
Time passed by, the pool ran dry, excavated was I
    E            
And tempered then beat in a fiery heat
                 B                   A
By the hand of a man, who's name was Dan
        E
Dan the blacksmith


[Verse 2]
E
Well, once I was a sword, a many years ago
E                         B           E
And my blade was broad, a many years ago
E
Worn with pride, into battle I'd ride at a warrior's side
      A         E
And I cut and I killed and was lost in a field
               B                    A
And I soon did rust, and corrode to dust
   E
Oh my


[Verse 3]
E
Well, once I was a daisy, a many years ago
E                             B           E
In pastures green and lazy, a many years ago
E                 A                  E
But I was et by a goat who fell in a moat and forgetting to float
E
He sunk like a lead and stayed until dead
E                   B                  A           E
But was relieved to find well just how kind it all was


[Verse 4]
E
Well, once I was a grub, a many years ago
E                              B           E
And I lived in muck and mud, a many years ago
E
But on the very first moon, I became a cocoon that resembled a prune
E
And When the Good Lord was done in the warmth of the sun
          B                     A                  E
I shed my skins, and I dried my wings, and I flew away


[Bridge]
          A                             E
Well, once I was a bullfrog, had to struggle for survival
         A                         E
And once I was a carp and lived in waters ornamental
         A                          E
And once I was a myna bird, quoting verses from the Bible
              B           A        E
Said, "Pretty boy, pretty boy, St. Luke"


[Instrumental]
E  E  E Em  E


[Verse 5]
E
Well, once I was a mule, a many years ago
E                                  B           E
But my master he treat me cruel, a many years ago
E
By and by I was sick, couldn't move to his kick, so he took out a stick
E                           A
And laid it right 'cross my back to an almighty crack
              B              A             E
And to his dismay, I passed away, into the blue


[Verse 6]
E
Then I was born a human baby, a many years ago
E                                 B
Well I remember I was born unto a lady, a many years ago
        A                                      E
All our hopes they were piled on the back of a child that turned out to be wild
E
Sent the devil a prayer and caused the parson to swear
E            B                A                E
So I took my leave to lie and thieve my way to jail
 

[Bridge]
E                A
Well, I've been a tinker, tailor, soldier, sailor
      E
Known good times and disaster
    A                                         E
But now I've found a teacher, and the teacher has a master
       A                            E
And the master is perfection, so he helps us get there faster
E                B                         A                        E
It don't need no proof, because that's the truth, and I'll drink to that
