          Em7                                  G
There's a river that parts the valley of this town

Em7                           G
Following the road up to your father's farm

     Em7                          G
Your rosy lungs were empty on the day that you were born

    Em7                                     G
And no one thought you'd make it past the morning

-----

Am            G
Ho...........Hum

Am            G
Ho...........Hum

     Em7                
Your brother said your mother

                                   G
Was a firefly you buried in the earth

    Em7
And every night, the fire light

                                 G
Warms the tender bits of skin beneath your shirt

    Em7                               G
The climbing constellations move in semi-tones

    Em7                                                    G
And set behind the county line in a melody of gravitation

Em7                              G7 G7 G6 G6 G G
Calling on the colours of the road!

Em7                               G7 G7 G6 G6 G G
Sleep amongst the mango trees and poison toads

  Em7                                    G7 G7 G6 G6 G G
A flood for every footprint, and every mile you forgot

Em7                                  G7 G7 G6 G6 G G
Though your hands were little, they always gave a lot

-----

Am            G
Hold your breath...

Am            G
Hold your breath...

Am            G
Hold your breath...

 Am           G
Hold your breath...

C      D

(x2)

-----

C                   D    
    The sanctity of soil

C                       D
    Wandering roots and living oils

C                   D
    Reunions underground

           C                                       D
Sunlight surfacing, and all around, mountains like diaphragms...

                                    G
The rhythm of a landscape that is breathing

-----

G (repeat until end)
