Intro: F C G F C G C F C F
C F Remember when our songs were just like prayers.
C Em Am FLike gospel hymns that you called in the air.
C Fcome down come down sweet reverance,
C Em Am Funto my simple house and ring
F C F C F C Em Am F C F
C Fring like silver, ring like gold
C Am Em Fring out those ghosts on the ohio
C Fring like clear day wedding bells
C Em Am F were we the belly of the beast or the sword that fell
well never tell.
(Chord pattern repeats. Just hear it)
come to me clear and cold on some sea
watch the world spinning waves..like some machine
now ive been crazy couldnt you tell
i threw stones at the stars, but the whole sky fell
now im covered up in straw, belly up on the table
well and sang and drank, and passed in the stable.
that tall grass grows high and brown,
well i dragged you straight in the muddy ground
and you sent me back to where i roam
well i cursed and i cried, but now i know
now i know
and i ran back to that hollow again
the moon was just a sliver back then
and i ached for my heart like some tin man
when it came oh it beat and it boiled and it rang..its ringing
ring like crazy, ring like hell
turn me back into that wild haired gale
ring like silver, ring like gold
turn these diamonds straight back into coal.
