Caroline Smith And The Good Night Sleeps - Birch Trees And Broken Barns chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
I worked this tab out on the ukulele, since Caroline 
plays it on a ukulele. So technically, this is a ukulele 
tab, but I played it through on a guitar, and it sounds 
okay. I will give you specifics on both, just in case.


No capo, both uke and guitar are played open
Optionally, you can play guitar with capo on 5, only strumming strings 1-4 (bottom 
4 strings), and use the chords for the ukulele.

G           C   C7M    G
If we were kids again
      C              C7M       G
we'd hang out almost everyday
                C        C7M    G
Running through woods at dawn
             C        C7M     G
finding the magic in things

              C      C7M    G
You'd help me up the tree
           C         C7M          G
holding me up to the top of the branches
          C       C7M     G
Open your book to read
                C           C7M          E
the story that felt like we were already in

      C          G                 D
Where you're the king of the apple trees
E     C           G                 D
   In the orchard where I'd come to eat

G                   C         C7M     G
Where we'd pull the wings off bees
           C          C7M         G
To build a bed in the top of the barn
                C          C7M      G
Humming through grass we'd sing
            C              C7M          E
out in the fields with the wind in our ears

      C           G              D
Where nights are long and in the day
E         C
   you'd paint and I'd write about outer space
E        C        G            D
   Where I'm the queen of the creek
E        C         G               D
   and the banks where you come to drink

G                 C         C7M     G
Swimming through birch and bark
             C          C7M       G
tell you my secrets of how I can fly
                   C     C7M       G
And I'll show you how tonight
       C              C7M         E
over bread and some white wine on ice
          C      G                  D
And I'll draw a bath and we'll cram in
E             C            G           D
    And we'll write this story as we begin

And on the bus we're still living
E           C            G                  D
    in the pages of our book that we have written
E          C        G                    D
    And as if the wheels have turned to wings
E             C           G                        D
    Traveled back to our world filled with birch trees & broken barns
