The George Fox Song                                                             
                                                                                
[Verse I]                                                                       
          C             Am             F          G                             
There’s a Light that is shining in the Heart of a man                           
         C              G                C                                      
It’s the Light that was shining when the world began                            
          C             Am             F            G                           
There’s a Light that is shining in the Turk and the Jew                         
          C             G                   C                                   
There’s a Light that is shining, friend, in me and in you.                      
                                                                                
[Chorus]                                                                        
C           Am     F                G                                           
Walk in the Light, wherever you may be                                          
C           Am     F                G                                           
Walk in the Light, wherever you may be                                          
        C           G               Am             G                            
With my old leather britches and my shaggy, shaggy locks                        
     C              G            C                                              
I am walking in the glory of the Light, said Fox                                

[Verse II]                                                                      
       C          Am            F          G                                    
With a book and a steeple and a bell and a key                                  
             C        G                 C                                       
Well they’ll bind you forever, but they can’t, said he                          
          C           Am             F            G                             
For the book, it will perish and the steeple will fall                          
         C            G              C                                          
And the Light will be shining at the end of it all.                             
                                                                                
[Verse III]                                                                     
       C          Am               F          G                                 
If we give you a pistol, will you fight for the Lord?                           
              C        G             C                                          
But you can’t kill the devil with a gun or a sword.                             
          C           Am             F            G                             
Will you swear on the Bible? “I will not!” said he,                             
         C            G              C                                          
“For the Truth is more holy than the book to me.”                               
                                                                                
[Verse IV]                                                                      
           C        Am             F            G                               
There’s an ocean of darkness and I drown in the night                           
      C                G               C                                        
Til I come through the darkness to the ocean of Light                           
        C           Am             F            G                               
and the Light is forever, and the Light it is free                              
      C           G              C                                              
And I walk in the glory of the Light, said he.
