Standard Tuning

C    G    C

C                                        F
All you kids get out the back door, I've never seen her this mad before

    C
She took all her favorite things down from the window

    G
And broke them all over her clean floor

     C                            F
It's Saturday at the mansion, the oldest boy walks with a slouch

    C
The young ones are wild in back of the house

        G                        C
And she gave up and went back to sleep on the couch

F                               C
Something as simple as boys and girls

     G                                 Am
Gets tossed all around and lost in the world

F                                     C
Something as hard as a prayer on your back

           G                Am
Can wait a long time for an answer

When I was little I'd stare at her picture
And talk to the mother of God
I swear sometimes I'd see her lips move
Like she was trying to say something to me
When I was eighteen I moved to Florida
Like everyone sick of the cold does
And I waited on old people waiting to die
Oh, I waited on them until I was

Something as simple as boys and girls
Gets tossed all around and lost in the world
Something as hard as a prayer on your back
Can wait a long time for an answer

C       G  F       C         G

C       G  F       C         G        C

Now I'm wearing my footsteps into this floor
One day I won't live here anymore
And someone will wonder who lived here before
And went on their way
I live too many miles from the ocean
And I'm getting older and odd
I get up every morning with my cup of coffee
And I talk to the mother of God

Something as simple as boys and girls
Gets tossed all around and lost in the world
Something as har as a prayer on your back
Can wait a long time for an answer
Can wait a long time for an answer

F      G        F       G

F           G       F                    G
Maybe it's alright, maybe we won't fight anymore

F             G              Am     G     F       G
Maybe love is waiting at the end of every road

        F             G
I don't know, I don't know

    F                 G   F       G      F     G
And maybe, maybe it's alright

F      G      Am    F     G
