Intro
D G D A D

Verse 1:

D                          G
Grab your heart we need to leave
                          D

There's no time to cry or grieve
                      A
For the fallen family tree

D                       G 
Rise above the flooding plain
                          D
Crouching low to duck the flame
                        A
Generations against the grain
                         D
Up in smoke and down the drain


PreChorus:

                    G
If the fire, if the flood
                             D
Burns the tree and thins the blood
                            A
If your tears don't want to dry

Chorus:
               D
I can help you cry
Through the night
G                        D
Through the night and day
                       A
I can't take your pain away
                   D
But I can help you cry

Verse 2 (same as above)

We'll cut the branch from this tree
Carve a place for you and me
A wooden seat that we can string
From a branch where we can swing

We'll take this block of wood
Carve it down and sand it good
When finished it will be
A souvenir of the family tree

Prechorus (same as above)

And if the fire, if the flood
Burns the tree and thins the blood
If your tears don't wanna dry

Chorus (same as above)

I can help you cry
Through the night
Through the night and day
I can't take your pain away
But I can help you cry
Through the night
Through the night and day
I can't take your pain away
I can try but

Bridge:

F   C       G
God help me please
     F        C      G           
Come save the family tree
   F         C          G
My friends I broke them all
     F       C       G
When falling off the wall

Verse 

D                     G
In the ash I found an ember
                       D            
Something warm to help remember
                             A
A block of wood that used to be
                     D
A strong tall family tree
                     A (let it ring)
A strong tall family tree
(no chords)
Blowing in the breeze

Chorus (same as above)

Cry through the night
Through the night and day
I can't take your pain away
But I can help you cry
Through the night
Through the night and day
I can't take your pain away
But I can help you cry

End on D
