 C           Cmaj7
1. Kiss me__      Out of the beard-ed bar-ley
C7         Cmaj7
  Night-ly__    Be-side the green green grass
 C             Cmaj7
  Swing swing__    Swing the spin-ning step
C7                           Fmaj7
  You wear those shoes and I will wear that dress

               Dm     G    C             Am7
Chorus: Oh-oh__  Kiss me__  Be-neath the mil-ky twi-light
      Dm     G     C            C7
        Lead me__   Out on the moon-lit floor
      Dm          G
        Lift your o-pen hand
       C               Em                   Am7
        Strike up the band and make the fire - flies dance
        Am7/G          Fmaj9     | Gsus  - G  |
        Sil-ver moon’s spark-ling
              | C    |  Cmaj7    |    C7    |   Cmaj7  |
        So kiss me 

   C        Cmaj7
 2. Kiss me__   Down by the brok-en tree-house
  C7         Cmaj7
    Swing me__    Up-on its hang-ing tyre
   C            Cmaj7
    Bring bring__    Bring your flow-ered hat
  C7                                    Fmaj7 
    We’ll take the trail mark-ed on your   fath-er’s map

               Dm     G    C             Am7
Chorus: Oh-oh__  Kiss me__  Be-neath the mil-ky twi-light
      Dm     G     C            C7
        Lead me__   Out on the moon-lit floor
      Dm          G
        Lift your o-pen hand
       C              Em                    Am7
        Strike up the band and make the fire - flies dance
        Am7/G          Fmaj9     | Gsus  - G  |
        Sil-ver moon’s spark-ling
