1. Don't Carry It All
   Tuning: EADGBE
Tabbed By: RandMcNally





G G G Em DHere we come to a turning of the season.
G G G Em DWitness to the arc toward the sun.
G G G Em DA neighbors blessed burden within reason.
G G G Becomes a burden born of all and one.
Em D CAnd nobody, nobody knows.
C C GLet the oath fall from our shoulders.
C C Em (D)Don't carry it all, don't carry it all.
C C GWe are all our hands and holders.
Bm CBeneath this bold and brilliant sun.
CThis I swear to all.
G G G Em DMonument to build beneath the arbors.
Upon a blimp that towers toward the trees. Let every vessel pitching hard to starboard. Lay it's head on summer's freckled knees.
Em D CAnd nobody, nobody knows.
C C GLet the oath fall from our shoulders.
C C Em (D)Don't carry it all, don't carry it all.
C C GWe are all our hands and holders.
Bm CBeneath this bold and brilliant sun.
C G Em DThis I swear to all......and this I swear to all.
Bm CBare a wreath of trillium and ivy.
Bm EmLaid upon the body of the boy.
Bm CLazy will the love come from it's hiding.
Am DAnd return this quiet searcher to the soil.
G G G Em DSo raise a glass to turnings of the season.
And watch it as it arcs towards the sun. And you must bare your neighbors burden within reason. And your labors will be borne when all is done.
Em D CAnd nobody, nobody knows.
C C GLet the oath fall from our shoulders.
C C Em (D)Don't carry it all, don't carry it all.
C C GWe are all our hands and holders.
Bm CBeneath this bold and brilliant sun.
C G Em DThis I swear to all......and this I swear to all.
And this I swear to all... And this I swear to all... To all, to all, to all... ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2. Calamity Song Tuning: EADGBE Tabbed By: CrackedCan Verse; Repeats a bunch of times. Play along with the song to get the rhythm.

Lyrics: Had a dream You and me and the war of the end times And I believe California succumbed to the fault line We heaved relief As scores of innocents died And the Andalusian tribes Setting the lay of Nebraska alight 'Til all that remains is the arms of the angel Petty greed Queen of supply-side bonhomie bone-drab You know what I mean On the road It's well advised that you follow your own bag In the year of the chewable Ambien tab And the Panamanian child Stands at the Dowager Empress's side And all that remains is the arms of the angel And all that remains is the arms of the angels And you've receded into loam And they're picking at your bones Will call cold We'll come home Quiet now Will we gather to conjure the rain down? Will we now Build a civilization below ground? And I'll be crowned the community kick-it-around And the Andalusian tribes Setting the lay of Nebraska alight 'Til all that remains is the arms of the angels 'Til all that remains is the arms of the angels ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.
