(G)Whose is the hand that (F)I will (Am)hold
(G)Whose is the face I (F)will (C)see
(G)Whose is the name (D)that I (Am)will call
When (G)I Am called to (F)meet (A)thee

(Am) (C) (G) (F)(Am)

(G)In this life who (F)did you (Am)love
(G)Beneath the drifting (F)a - (C)shes
(G)Beneath the shee(D)ting banks (Am)of air
That (G)barrenly pour our (F)ra - (A)tions

(Am) (C) (G) (F)(Am)

(G)When I could speak it (F)was too (Am)late
(G)Didn't you hear me (F)ca - (C)lling
(G)Didn't you see (D)my heart (Am)leap like a
(G)Pup in the constant (F)bar - (A)ley

(Am) (C) (G) (F)(Am)

(G)In this life where (F)did you (Am)crouch
(G)When the sky had set to (F)bo - (C)iling
(G)Burning within (D)seen from (Am)without
In your (G)gut was a serpent (F)coi - (A)ling

And (Am)for the sake of that (C)pit of snakes
For (G)whom did you allay your (D)shyness
And (Am)spend on your mercy and (C)madness and grace
In a (G)day beneath the bending (F)cy(Am)press

(F#m)It was not on (A)principle, (D)show, pro-(C)heart, that you (G)have got (F)gall
(F#m)A mira(A)cle: (D)I can bear A (C)lot but (G)not that (F)pall
(Am)I can bear A lot but (C)not that pall, (G)kingfisher sound the A(D)larm
Say, (Dm)"Sweet little darling, now (C)come to my arms"
Tell me (G)all about the love you left (F)on (G)the (Am)farm"
(Am)He was a kind and (C)hurried man, with a (G)heavy lip and a (D)steady hand
But (Dm7)he loved me just like A (C)little child, a (G)little child loves A (F)little (Am)lamb

(G)Thrown to the ground by (F)something (Am)down there
(G)Bitten by the bad air (F)while the clouds (C)tick
(G)Trying to (D)read all (Am)the signs
Pre(G)paring for when the (F)bombs hit (A)

(Am) (C) (G) (F)(Am)
[ Tab from: http://www.guitaretab.com/j/joanna-newsom/225301.html ]
(G)Hung from the (D)under(Dsus2)belly (Am)of
The (G)earth while the (D)stars skid A(Dsus2)way be(C)low
(G)Gormless and (D)brakless, (Em)gravel-loose (D)falling
(Dm)silent as (A)gavels (C)in the (Em)snow

(Am)La la la (C)la la (G)la la la la la la la (F)la (Am)la

(F#m)I lay back and (A)spit in my chaw
(D)wrapped in the (C)long arm (G)of the (F)law
(F#m)Who has seen it (A)all
(D)I can bear A (C)lot but (G)not that (F)pall
(Am)I can bear a lot but (C)not that pall, (G)Kingfisher, cast your (D)fly
(Dm)Oh, lord it happens with(C)out even trying
When I (G)sling a low look from my (F)shuttering (Am)eye

(G)Blows rain upon the (F)one you (Am)loved
And (G)though you were only (F)spar(C)ring
There's (G)blood in the eye (D)unlace the (Am)glove
Say (G)honey, I Am not (F)sor - (A)ry

(Am) (C) (G) (F)(Am)

(G)Stand here and name the (F)one you (Am)loved
(G)Beneath the drifting (F)a - (C)shes
(G)And in na(D)ming rise (Am)above
(G)Time as it, flashing, (F)pas - (A)ses

(Am)Oooh (C)Oooh (G)Oooh (D)Oooh
(Am)Oooh (C)Oooh (G)Oooh (D)Oooh
(Am)We came by (C) the boatload (G)and were im(D)mobilized
(Am)Worshipping (C) volcanoes, (G)charting the (D)loping skies
(Am)The tides of (C) the earth left (G) us bound and (D)calcified, and made us
(Am)Obstinate as (C)obsidian, (G) unmoving (D)save our eyes
(Am)Just mooning (C) and blinking, (G)from faces (D)marked with coal
(Am)Ash cooling (C) and shrinking, (G) cracks loud as (D)thunder rolling, I swear
(Am)I know you, (C) you know me, (G) where have we (D) met before, tell me true
(Am)To whose au - (C)thority (G) do you con(D)sign your soul?

(Am)I had a dream you (C)came to me, said, "(G)You shall not do me harm (D)anymore"
(Am)And with your knife you e(C)victed my life from its (G)little lighthouse on 
the (F)sea(Am)shore
And I (Am)saw that my blood had (C)no bound, (G)spreading in a circle like an (D)atom bomb
(Dm)Soaking and felling every(C)thing in its path, and (G)welling in my heart like 
a (F)bird(Am)bath
(Am)It is too short (C) the day we are born (G) we commence with our (D)dying
(Dm)Trying to serve with the (C)heart of a child, (G)Kingfisher, lie with the (F)li - (A)on
