CHORUS:

               Em
As heavy as a history book can be,
           G                   C        G        Bm
I will carry it with me, oh Lord.
                   Em
And maybe when the bitterness has gone,
              G                             C      G     Bm
There'll be sweetness on our tongues once more.

VERSE 3: Play the verse tab once.

CHORUS: Same as before.

BRIDGE:

     F                          C          G
We'll soon forget our parents' names,
      F                           C          G
Like dogs will drive the wolves away.
        F                         C
And weep with fingertips opposed,
            G                    F           G        F
Like a church where nobody congregates.

OUTRO VERSE:

Am     F          G           C
   But sweetness sings in the pasture,
Am     F          G           C
   We throw ourselves on the mercy of the earth.
Am     F          G           C
   If sand and salt have the answer,
Am     F          G           C
   Then the act itself will be louder than the word.

Am           F                  G              C
            And I'll be on your side, and I'll be on your side.
Am           F                  G              C

Am           F                  G              C
            And I'll be on your side, and I'll be on your side.
Am           F                  G              C

Am F G C goes on for the rest of the song


Joe
