Andrew Bird - Giant Of Illinois chords

C G AmThe giant of Illinois
F C G Died from a blister on his toe
C G E FAfter walking all day through the first winter's snow
C G AmThrowing bits of stale bread
F C G To the last speckled doves
C G E FHe never even felt his shoe full of blood
Am Em Delirious with pain, his bedroom walls began to glow
G Dm And he felt himself soaring up through falling snow
F G AmAnd the sky was a woman's arms
F G CThe sky was a woman's arms
C G AmA boy with a club foot
F C G Had sat next to him in school
C G E FOnce upon a summer's day they went wandering through the woods
C G AmThey spotted a sleeping swan
F C GOn the banks of a muddy stream
C G E FAnd they stormed it with rocks till it collapsed in the reeds
Am Em They lay out on a green lawn full of chocolate and lemonade
G Dm But underneath it all the giant was afraid
F G AmAnd the sky was a woman's arms
F G CAnd the sky was a woman's arms
