Andrew Peterson – Hosea chords

Dbm, B, E, A

Dbm BEvery time I lay in the bed beside you,
E AHosea, Hosea,
Dbm B E AI hear the sound of the streets of the city.
Dbm AbmMy belly growls like a hungry wolf
B E AAnd I let it prowl till my belly's full.
E B E A Hosea, my heart is a stone.
V2 Please believe me when I say I'm sorry, Hosea, Hosea, You loveable, gullible man. I tell you that my love is true Till it fades away like a morning dew. Hosea, leave me alone. Bridge
Abm AHere I am in the Valley of Trouble.
E BJust look at the bed that I've made:
Abm A E BBadlands as far as I can see.
Dbm B AThere's no one here but me, Hosea.
Dbm BI stumbled and fell in the road on the way home,
E AHosea, Hosea.
Dbm B EI lay in the brick street like a stray dog.
Dbm AbmYou came to me like a silver moon
B E A With the saddest smile I ever knew.
E B E AHosea carried me home again.
E B E A BHome again.
Bridge You called me out to the Valley of Trouble Just to look at the mess that I've made, A barren place where nothing can grow. One look and my stone heart crumbled It was a valley as green as jade.
Abm AI swear it was the color of hope.
E B AYou turned a stone into a rose,
F# BHosea. Hosea
F# B V4
Dbm B EI sang and I danced like I did as a young girl,
AHosea, Hosea.
Dbm B EI am a slave and a harlot no more.
Dbm BYou washed me clean like a summer rain
F# E AAnd you set me free with that ball and chain.
E A Hosea, I threw away the key.
E AI'll never leave.
E, A, E, A
