Chords
Transpose
(Intro)
C Am C Am(note: the intro lick uses Cadd9, if you're lazy and don't wanna play the riff you can
add the ninth after defining the chord)
C AmHeart-carved tree trunk, Yankee bayonet
C AmA sweetheart left behind
C AmFar from the hills of the sea-swelled Carolinas
C AmThat's where my true love lies
(C Am C Am)
C AmLook for me when the sun-bright swallow
C AmSings upon the birch bough high
C AmBut you are in the ground with the voles and the weevils
C AmAll a'chew upon your bones so dry
(C Am C Am x2) (Chorus)
A Cmaj7But when the sun breaks
A Cmaj7 GTo no more bullets in Battle Creek
A Cmaj7Then will you make a grave
A FFor I will be home then
GI will be home then
FI will be home then
GI will be home then
Then (Interlude)
C Am C Am(note: in the same style as the intro)
C AmWhen I was a girl how the hills of Oconee
C AmMade a seam to hem me in
C AmThere at the fair when our eyes caught, careless
C AmGot my heart right pierced by a pin
(C Am C Am)
C AmBut oh, did you see all the dead of Manassas
C AmAll the bellies and the bones and the bile
C AmNo, I lingered here with the blankets barren
C AmAnd my own belly big with child
(C Am C Am x2) (Chorus)
A Cmaj7But when the sun breaks
A Cmaj7 GTo no more bullets in Battle Creek
A Cmaj7Then will you make a grave
A FFor I will be home then
GI will be home then
FI will be home then
GI will be home then
(Bridge)
F GStems and bones and stone walls too
GCould keep me from you
F EmSkein of skin is all too few
GTo keep me from you
(C Am C Am)(note: in the same style as the intro)
C AmBut oh my love, though our bodies may be parted
C AmThough our skin may not touch skin
C AmLook for me with the sun-bright sparrow
C AmI will come on the breath of the wind
C Am C Am x2
