Verse 1:

Dm        C      G

Dm          C                G
And few can decipher who the message is from

    Dm      C  G
And deliver it quietly

      Dm         C        G
cause some don't get much company

More than realized

Dm        C       G
Pale as a pile of bones

You hope for your babies

And this is how they grow

     Dm                C
Wind-battered, knocked over

    G
The teeth by the shoulder

Dm                 C
Watching the grey sky

That's acting like a good guy
