The Oh Hellos - In Memoriam
Capo 2

Here's the chords.  I didn't write in all the chords for the 2nd and 3rd verses 
but they follow the same pattern as the first verse.

C Am C Am

Am            C                        Am  
well, it's a long way out to reach the sea 
                   C                        Am
but I'm sure I'll find you waiting there for me 
            C                           G
and by the time I blink, I'll see your wild arms swinging 
         Am                           F
just to meet me in the middle of the road 
           Am                               F
and you'll hold me like you'll never let me go 
      Am                             G
and beside the salty water, I could hold you close, 
             C                    Am        C  Am
but you are far too beautiful to love me 

it's a long climb up the dusty mountain 
to build a turret tall enough to keep you out 
but when you wage your wars against the one who adores you, 
then you'll never know the treasure that you're worth 
but I've never been a wealthy one before 
I've got holes in my pockets burned by liars' gold, 
                 C                       Am        C  Am
and I think I'm far too poor for you to want me 

Between verses:

C   G   Am  F  Am  F   Am   G   C   Am   C   Am   C   G   C   Am

             C                          Am
it's been a long road, losing all I've owned 
and you don't know what you've got until you're gone 
and it's a nasty habit, spending all you have, but 
when you're doing all the leaving, then it's never your love lost 
and if you leave before the start, then there was never love at all 
and heaven knows I'm prone to leave the only God I should have loved, 
and yet you're far too beautiful to leave me
