Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Em                Am           D    Dm     Em
I caught a string full of fish down by the damn
Em                  Am                F#m               B7
I'll drag them back to the field they should be dead by then
Em             Am              D     Dm     Em
Wipe the sweat off my neck and tally ho the plow
G                B7             C
I'm gonna grow a woman from the ground

Em              Am                D     Dm
The night was a chalkboard with a fingernail moon
Em                 Am           F#m            B7
If the fish ain't dead yet they will be pretty soon
Em             Am            D   Dm    Em
Kinda like the feeling at an old folks home
G               B7                  C
Even though you love them you can't wait for them to go

Em            Am               D       Dm     Em
I'll call her Angelina she's a teacher I once had
Em        Am            F#m        B7
A halo of honey wrapped around her head
Em                     Am                D Dm    Em
And she always used to give me some when I was a kid
G                 B7            C
I told her that I loved her and then I went and hid

C                  G             C
I'll take you into town and I'll show you off
C                        G         C
And there's room on your dress for a corsage
C                      G        C
And I'll open up every door for you

Em             Am          D     Dm     Em
I opened up my almanac and in my head I read
Em                    Am                   F#m           B7
Cut your wrist on the fins of the fish and drain all you can
Em                Am          D    Dm       Em   G             B7
So I rolled up my sleeves and then began to draw lines just as deep as the
C 
days are long

Em            Am                  D      Dm      Em
I sewed up my wrist and sewed the ground with my blood
Em           Am                        F#m                 B7
Stained up my clothes pretty good and I turned that dirt to mud
Em                  Am                D      Dm   Em
I couldn't help but close my eyes and lay my body down
G                       B7                C 
'Cause I heard it takes forever to grow a woman from the ground
C           G               C
I bleed for you now and I'm skinny as a rail
C              G                   C
And I'll be so obliged to keep you nice and warm and safe
C                   G        C
and won't you be so proud of me
