The Milk Carton Kids

"The Ash & Clay" from the album Prologue.

Here's one half of the duo.  The other guitar chords/tab will hopefully be posted here sometime soon.
If anyone has an alternative suggestion to the F#, please comment.  Thanks!



Capo on 4th fret

      F             G           C              C/B         Am   
The swing sets are empty like dirt turned the dark of the night

      F             G                C           C/B      Am
The center of this town it used to whirl in the glow of twilight

            F             G                 C            F 
It might look like god's away with all the trouble these days

F      F#    G     E       Am     G  F
We'll come home before the girls are grown

F             G         C
We're coming home tonight

F                  G                 C           C/B    Am 
What, oh, have we done to run this country into such a sight

F                G                C               C/B         Am 
Stolen from our brothers like we couldn't find a fair enough fight

             F                G  
You wait on promise you will say

        C                  F
Won't forsake the ash and clay

F     F#   G     E         Am    Am/G  F
Let's come home before the girls are grown

F           G        C
Let's come home to fight


   F                  G            C                C/B      Am
I know we want whats best for us–i know it has to come at a price

  F               G               C             C/B        Am 
I also know the trouble that you find when you stop being nice

     F                  G
You look around you one day

          C                F
What you once knew didn't stay

F     F#   G     E         Am    Am/G  F
Let's come home before the girls are grown

F           G        C
Let's come home tonight

F    G      E       Am     Am/G   F   F#  G   E  Am  Am/G  F    F G C
Oooh Ooooh Oooooh, Oooooh oooooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh  ooooh 

         F           G                   C           C/B         Am
Have you ever asked a man to take your place at the head of the table?

           F              G               C                C/B             Am
You could shed away your shame if in the end You found you simply weren't able

          F                   G   
You might find out you could stay

        C             F
On the ash and on the clay

F    F# G     E         Am    Am/G  F
Come on home before the girls are grown

F        G       C
Come on home tonight

F    G      E       Am    Am/G    
Oooh Ooooh Oooooh Oooooh oooooh   

F    F# G     E         Am    Am/G  F
Come on home before the girls are grown

F        G       F    C C/B Am Am/G F G C 
Come on home to fight
