Capo on the First Fret.


Em           Bm
Time it took us
D                  A
To where the water was
 Em                    Bm 
That’s what the water gave me
 Em                Bm
And time goes quicker
   D           A
Between the two of us
 Em                  Bm 
Oh, my love, don’t forsake me
 D                   A
Take what the water gave me
 

       Em  Bm
Lay me down
          D     A
Let the only sound
         Em    Bm
Be the overflow
          D      A
Pockets full of stones
         
        
       Em  Bm
Lay me down
          D      A
Let the only sound
         Em Bm D    A
Be the overflow
 

Em           Bm
And oh poor Atlas
 D                  A              
The world’s a beast of a burden
  Em                    Bm               
You’ve been holding on a long time
Em             Bm    
And all this longing
D                  A          
And the shields are left to rust
  Em                  D          A
That’s what the water gave us

 
       Em  Bm
So Lay me down
          D     A
Let the only sound
         Em    Bm
Be the overflow
          D      A
Pockets full of stones

       Em  Bm
Lay me down
          D      A
Let the only sound
         Em Bm D    A
Be the overflow
 
Em                    Bm
‘Cause they took your loved ones
D                          A
But returned them in exchange for you
Em                        Bm 
But would you have it any other way?
Em                        Bm 
Would you have it any other way?
D                          A 
You could have had it any other way
Em                      Bm
‘Cause she’s a crueller mistress
D                A
And the bargain must be made
Em                      Bm
But oh, my love, don’t forget me
D                   A
But I let the water take me
 


Lay me down
Let the only sound
Be the over flow
Pockets full of stones
 

Lay me down
Let the only sound
Be the overflow
 

Lay me down
Let the only sound
Be the overflow
Pockets full of stones
 

Lay me down
Let the only sound
Be the overflow
