   "Lawng, lawng        ago...."


 A          E       A         E
Long, long ago, in China I'm told
   A            E           B
To England was traded some tea
    A              E       A         E
And so sealed the fate in pieces of eight
    A            E           B
All England, and all of the world
    (riff 1)       B
Yeah........poppies

      A            E        A            E
When soon his majesty sent soldiers and thieves
   A       E            B
To India searching for gold
    A               E          A          E
Instead, from the ground some magic they found
      A             E          B
Aww, something far better I'm told
(riff 1)          B
Yeah.......poppies
(riff 1)          B
Yeah.......poppies


(instrumental--play through chords of one verse)


    A                E         A          E
And now, this story told from days of our own
      A         E         B
When gossamer doggies ran ran
        A         E         A         E
They'd patiently wait, with pieces of eight
     A   E           B
So everybody could smile
             (riff 1)        B
One more time.........poppies
             (riff 1)        B   E
         Yeah.........poppies
