Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
     C      G     Am
The giant of Illinois
F            C              G
 Died from a blister on his toe

      C           G               E              F
After walking all day through the first winter's snow

C        G             Am
Throwing bits of stale bread
F         C           G
 To the last speckled doves
  C           G        E            F
He never even felt his shoe full of blood

  Am                              Em             
Delirious with pain, his bedroom walls began to glow
      G                     Dm                 
And he felt himself soaring up through falling snow


    F             G       Am
And the sky was a woman's arms
    F         G       C
The sky was a woman's arms

  C        G      Am
A boy with a club foot
F          C            G
 Had sat next to him in school
 C          G                      E                     F
Once upon a summer's day they went wandering through the woods

     C         G        Am
They spotted a sleeping swan
       F    C           G
On the banks of a muddy stream
         C               G             E                F
And they stormed it with rocks till it collapsed in the reeds

     Am                              Em            
They lay out on a green lawn full of chocolate and lemonade
    G                       Dm        
But underneath it all the giant was afraid

        F         G       Am
And the sky was a woman's arms
         F         G       C
And the sky was a woman's arms
