1.When I was a boy I went into the woods for three days
G                    Bb                                 C             G                  Bb       C         D
 I carved a spoon from a tree branch   with a buck knife.
G                                    Bb               A7
 In a lightning flash the world disappeared
G                                                  Bb                  A7
 Until there was nothing left but me and my spoon

2. I carried my spoon to the waters of the earth
G            Bb           C               G
   And I used it to stir in the mud
G                                    Bb              A7
   I spun my spoon in a minuscule vortex
G                                      Bb         A7
  But it only swirled whenever I moved

3. I walked to the sea to see the horizon
G              Bb                      C                         G
  I swam out to where the water meets the sky
G                                        Bb                 A7
  When I reached there I took out my spoon
G                                  Bb                 A7
  And I stirred up the water and the sky
