Mewithoutyou – Four Fires chords
Intro (and verses): Em—Asus2 (x2)Em Asus2Dear seven sisters, all is distance here All look into neverEm Asus2out of every face I'll let you be my belief if I can be your doubtEm Asus2Signed from Persia: Kind subversion of a kind I couldn't sayEm Asus2As our blessed lack of conversation Has kept me alive so far todayEm Asus2 (x2)Em Asus2All my savings soon were spent, so in the vales of early FallEm Asus2Under table, covered rent by packing bales of barley strawEm Asus2With efforts held to circumvent the watchful eye of federal lawEm Asus2And mama, though I've been so aloneG D Asus2My faith in love is still devout (x 4)Em Asus2With solemn sounds the potter's ground beneath our bare wandering feetEm Asus2Our crooked hearts in Sacred Harp sang out of the dark inside us deepEm Asus2Their shapes of sorrow fell like shadows on the farm-to-market roadsEm Asus2That led my stumbling steps back homeEm Asus2But mama why four fires burning? Why so quiet Father's room?Em Asus2Has he not heard his son returning? or has he gone to gather food?Em Asus2Or is he stomping in the forest? or has he wandered into town?Em Asus2"Son, I think it's best that you sit down-G D Asus2His faith in love was still devout..." (x 7, x1 over last 'devout')Bm G A GMama, sing my favorite hymn As I sink deep into the grassBm G A GAnd the night birds beat me with their wings With horrid laughter as they passBm G A GThe stage goes dim, its pageants finished Fleeting worlds to which I've clung with a now extinguished longingBm G A GMama, sing my favorite hymn Where we make ploughshares from our swordsBm G A GAnd the mason's barber trim our Christmas tree In the Oneness of the LordBm G A GWhat grace surrounds! what strange perfection! Mamma, sing my favorite hymnRemind me Everyone is him
