Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds – The Sorrowful Wife chords

Chords:
Transpose:
AmI married my wife on the day of the eclipse
DmOur friends awarded her courage with gifts
AmNow as the nights grow longer and the season shifts
GI look to my sorrowful wife
F G AmWho is quietly tending her flowers
F GWho is quietly tending her.....
(played over piano solo) Am - Dm - Am - Dm - F - G - Am - Dm - Am - Dm
AmThe water is high on the beckoning river
DmI made her a promise I could not deliver
AmAnd the cry of the birds sends a terrible shiver
GThrough me and my sorrowful wife
F G AmWho is shifting the furniture around
F GWho is shifting the furniture around
(played over piano solo) Am - Dm - Am - Dm - F - G - Am - Dm - Am - Dm
AmNow we sit beneath the knotted Yew
DmAnd the bluebells bob around our shoes
AmThe task of remembering the telltale clues
GGoes to my lovely, my sorrowful wife
F G AmWho is counting the days on her fingers
F G DmWho is counting the days on her.....
AmCome on and help me babe
DmCome on now
AmHelp me babe
DmI was blind
F The grass here grows long and high
GTwists right up to the sky
Am DmWhite clouds roll on by
AmCome on now and help me babe
DmI was blind
AmI was a fool babe
DmI was blind
Come on now
FA loose wind last night blew down
GBlack trees bent to the ground
Am DmTheir blossoms made such a sound
That I could not hear myself think babe Come on now And help me babe Help me now I was blind I was a fool
