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

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

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

                Am           Em                 C
and you'll find somebody you can blame
                  Am                           Em                     C
and you'll follow the creek that runs out into the sea
Am                      F                               C
          and you'll find the peace of the Lord.

Am Em C (x4)

C         G         Em                    Am
grandfather, gentle soul, you'll fly
C              G            Am        Em        C
over your life once more before you die
C                G            Em
since our grandma passed away
            C        G        Em            Am
you've waited for forever and a day
just to die
and someday soon
you will die

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

Am Em C (x10)
