B     C#m      B/D#               G#m/D#
older brother, restless soul, lie down
B         C#m             B/D#           G#m
lie for a while with your ear against the earth
           B                C#m
and you'll hear your sister sleep talking
          B/D#             C#m                G#m
say "your hair is long but not long enough to reach
        B
home to me
         G#m
but your beard
              B
someday might be"


           B/D#         C#m               B
and she'll wake up in a cold sweat on the floor
           B/D#           C#m                 B
next to a family portrait drawn when you were four
    B/D#            C#m                     B           B
and beside a jar of two cent coins that are no good any more
              B
she'll lay it aside


B/D#    B    C#m    G#m


B     C#m     B/D#               G#m/D#
older father, weary soul, you'll drive
B           C#m          B/D#         G#m/D#
back to the home you made on the mountainside
B               C#m
with that ugly, terrible thing
      B/D#       C#m
those papers for divorce
             G#m
and a lonely ring
         B
a lonely ring
            G#m
sit on your porch
               B
and pluck your strings


B
and you'll find somebody you can blame

and you'll follow the creek that runs out into the sea

and you'll find the peace of the Lord.


B    C#m     B/D#               G#m/B
grandfather, weary soul, you'll fly
B         C#m       B/D#            G#m/B
over your life once more before you die
B                 C#m
since our grandma passed away
       B/D#          C#m        G#m
you've waited for forever and a day
        B
just to die
            G#m
and someday soon
         B
you will die


           B/D# C#m            B
it was the only woman you ever loved
         B/D#                 C#m                B
that got burnt by the sun too often when she was young
        B/D#                 C#m          B
and the cancer spread and it ran into her body and her blood
            B/D#            C#m         B
and there's nothing you can do about it now
