D                         C
When I walk beside her, I am the better man
G                                 D
When I look to leave her, I always stagger back again
D                                        C
Once I built an ivory tower, so I could worship from above
           G                         D
And when I climb down to be set free, she took me in again

D                         Am    
There's a big, a big hard sun
                   G                     D
Beatin' on the big people in the big hard world
When she comes to greet me, she is mercy at my feet  (when I)
When I stay to pillage her, she just throws it back at me
Once I dug an early grave, to find a better land
She just smiled and laughed at me, and took her blues back again

Chorus x 2

And when I go to cross that river she is, comfort by my side
When I try to understand, she just opens up her hands

Violin solo over verse chords


Once I stood to lose her, when I saw what I had done
Mmm Burned down and threw away the hours, of her garden and her sun
So I tried to warn her, and turned to see her weep
Mmm 40 days and 40 nights, and it's still coming down on me

Chorus  repeat multiple times and fade
