Here's a go at one of my all-time favourites. Would appreciate feedback on whether it sounds right and maybe a better description of the outro ... anyway enjoy this great song:

C
There’s a place that I go
              F
There’s a tree, a swan and I know
             C
That the darkest, they surround him
                F
Since they took his wife and children
            C
And my friends were there in the old  days
           F
Ah but now they’ve gone their own way
                                           G
And the swan waits for his chil-dren



Chorus:
                                C
(And) the world carries on
             Em                            Am
And the visitors come with their bags
                            F
And their  colourful rags
                           C          Em
And the only thing that will remain
       Am                F
Is a big tree and a lone swan
          C            Em
When we finally give in
         Am            F
Hope we meet in heaven


Bridge:

C
In lazy days
     Am
In summer haze
           F                       G
We’d laugh beneath that big tree’s gaze
         C                   Am                        
And having made up all the tunes
           F                      G
We’d climple fridle tidal vroom


C
The tree stands watching always
               F
While the swan he thinks of old days
           C
 He’ll never join a new crowd
                 F
‘cause he’s loyal and strong and too proud
                                   G
As he waits there for his chil-dren


Chorus, Bridge, Chorus
