Simple Gifts

       G                              D7    G
'Tis a gift to be simple, 'tis a gift to be free
       D       A7        D                 D7
'Tis a gift to come down where we ought to be
     G                     D      G     D7   G
And when we find ourselves in the place just right
       C6          D7       C         G
'Twill be in the valley of love and delight

          D    G
When true simplicity is gained
                      A7         D7
To bow and to bend we shan't be ashamed
   G             D    G
To turn, to turn will be our delight
        Am       D7         G     C    G
Till by turning, turning we come round right
