JONAS & EZEKIAL (Amy Ray)
-------------------------
[Actually in D; capo 2.]
[Each chord is one measure.]

[I saw Indigo Girls do this on Austin City Limits, and they played the verse
 chords as Am and C.  The _Rites_of_Passage_ songbook also shows them as Am
 and C.  But it _sounds_ like it's mostly Am; that's because the _bass_ plays
 A most of the time, even under the C measures.  On "ACL," the chords were
 strummed so that the fourth and fifth notes of the Am and C measures were
 hammer-ons from 0 to 2 on the D string.]

[In other words: the verse is Am Am Am Am(4)>Am Am Am Am C C C C(9)>C C C C.]

          Am                       C
I left my anger in a river running Highway 5
    Am                   C
New Hampshire, Vermont, border by
Am                          C
College farms, hubcaps, and falling rocks
Am                          C
Voices in the woods and the mountaintops

I used to search for reservations and native lands
Before I realized everywhere I stand
There have been tribal feet running wild as fire
Some past life sister of are my desire

   F                   G
   Jonas and Ezekial, hear me now
C                    F
   Steady now, and don't come out
           F                     G
   I'm not ready for the dead to show it's face
C                      F        E7  E7      Am   Am   Am   Am 
   Whose angel are you anyway,         anyway?

Now when I was young, my people taught me well
Give back what you take, or you'll go to hell
It's not the devil's land, you know it's not that kind
Every devil I meet becomes a friend of mine
Every devil I meet is an angel in disguise

Jonas and Ezekial, hear me now
Steady now, and don't come out
I'm not ready for the dead to show its face
Whose angel are you anyway?

Am      C        Am      C
Hey hey hey hey, Hey hey hey hey...
E7      E7       Am      C      E7     E7
[guitar solo]
Am           C           G            E7          E7
   White - Chain - Rope - Fear - Be still my dear

A bullet in the head, now he's dead
A friend of a friend, someone said
He was an activist with a very short life
I think there's a lesson here, he died without a fight

In the war over land where the world began
Prophecy says it's where the world will end
But there's a tremor growing in our own backyard
 Am                 C                       Am
Fear in our heads, fear in our hearts, prophets in the graveyards

Jonas and Ezekial, hear me now
Steady now, and don't come out
I'm not ready for the dead to show its face
Whose turn is it anyway?

Jonas and Ezekial, hear me now
Steady now, I feel your ghost about
I'm not ready for the dead to show its face
Whose angel are you anyway?

               Am                        C
I said there's prophets in the graveyard
               (Here    I      walk in   beauty)
Am                        C
Prophets in the graveyard
(Beauty         is   be - fore me)
Am                        C         Am         C       Am.
Prophets in the graveyard
(Beauty         is   be - hind me, above and below me)
