C G Am The giant of Illinois F C G Died from a blister on his toe C G Am F After walking all day through the first winter's snow C G Am Throwing bits of stale bread F C G To the last speckled doves C G Am F He never even felt his shoe full of blood C G Am F Delirious with pain, his bedroom walls began to glow C G Am F And he felt himself soaring up through falling snow C G Am And the sky was a woman's arms C G C The sky was a woman's arms C G Am A boy with a club foot F C G Had sat next to him in school C G Am F Once upon a summer's day they went wandering through the woods C G Am They spotted a sleeping swan F C G On the banks of a muddy stream C G Am F And they stormed it with rocks till it collapsed in the reeds C G Am F They lay out on a green lawn full of chocolate and lemonade C G Am F But under the blue bowl the giant was afraid C G Am Because the sky was a woman's arms C G C The sky was a woman's arms Tabbed By Josh C
