C                    Em
Why do you whisper, green grass,
F6                            Fm6
Why tell the trees what ain't so?
C           Eb
Whispering grass,
     Dm7        G7       C
The trees don't have to know.

C                       Em
Why tell them all your secrets,
F6                    Fm6
Who kissed there long ago?
C           Eb
Whispering grass,
     Dm7        G7      C      F7   C   G7
The trees don't need to know.~~~~~~~~~~~~~

C6                   Am7
Don't you tell it to the breeze,
     Dm7                G7
`Cos she will tell the birds and bees,
     C             Am7
And everyone will know
            Dm7       C#    Dm7
Because you told them once before.
G7       Am7       C#   Am7
Yes you told them once before,
D7       Dm7   C#  Dm7    G7
It's no secret anymore.~~~~~~

C                      Em
Why tell them all the old things,
F6                        Fm6
They're buried under the snow.
C           Eb           Dm7      Ab7
Whispering grass, don't tell the trees,
          Dm7        Db7      C6
'Cos the trees don't need to know.

    C6                Am7
Now don't you tell it to the breeze
     Dm7                G7
`Cos she will tell the birds and bees,
     C             Am7
And everyone will know
             Dm7       C#    Dm7
Because you told them once before.
G7       Am7       C#   Dm7
Yes you told them once before,
D7       Dm7    C# Dm7   G7
It's no secret anymore.~~~~~~

C                     Em
Why tell them all the old things,
F6                        Fm6
They're buried under the snow.
C           Eb           Dm7      Ab7
Whispering grass, don't tell the trees,
          Dm7         Db7     C6
'Cos the trees don't need to know.~~~~~~~~~

The 4th bar is not an Eb major its an E minor. And some of the lyrics are incorrect. Still thank you for sharing!

Thanks for your input, it can only make this site better,, but the correct chord you refer to is actually
a "C diminished" but our singer preferred us to use an Eb,,, I remembered how to play the song
but couldn`t remember the lyrics,,, I got the lyrics from one of the many lyric sites,,, there is only
one line that`s not the same as The Inkspots recording "Because you told the blabbering trees"
Thanks again for your help and feel free to comment on any of my tabs.....
