WORLD FALLS (Amy Ray)
---------------------
[Actually in F; capo 3.]
[Each chord is half a measure, except as noted in the bridge.]
[Ds9(4) is Dsus9(4).  I'm not sure if that's its "real" name.  It's xx0030.]

D  Ds9(4)   D  Ds9(4)   D  Ds9(4)   C(9)  C(9)
[intro]
D  Ds9(4)   D  Ds9(4)   D  Ds9(4)   C(9)  C(9)
[intro]

    D      Ds9(4)  D      Ds9(4)  D         Ds9(4)  C(9)  C(9)
I'm coming home    with a stone   strapped onto my back
    D      Ds9(4)      D       Ds9(4)       D      Ds9(4)     C(9)  C(9)
I'm coming home with a burning hope turning all my blues to black
    D       Ds9(4) D     Ds9(4)  D       Ds9(4)  C(9)  C(9)
I'm looking for a sacred hand to carve into my stone
  D        Ds9(4)   D       Ds9(4)     D         Ds9(4)  C(9)   C(9)
A ghost of comfort, angel's breath, to keep this life inside my chest

     D       D      G  G     D         D     G   G
This world falls on me, with hopes of immortality
D      D        G    G          D     D           G       G
  Everywhere I turn, all this beauty just keeps shaking me
D  Ds9(4)   D  Ds9(4)   D  Ds9(4)   C(9)  C(9)
[instrumental]

I woke up in the middle of a dream, scared the world was too much for me
Sejarez said, "don't let go, just plant the seeds and watch them grow"
I've slept in rainy canyonlands, cold drenched to my skin
I always wake to find a face to calm these troubled lands

This world falls on me, with hopes of immortality
Everywhere I turn, all the beauty just keeps shaking me

[For the bridge, these numbers refer to the fret position on the D and G
 strings, because I don't know what the chords would be called.  All the
 chords are x0??00.  (These numbers fill in the ??.)  Each chord or group
 of chords joined by a hyphen is one measure.  (See the tab at the end.)]

22 - 44 - 66    77 - 66 - 44    22 - 20   22
[instrumental]
        22  -  44 - 66   77 - 66 - 44       22 - 20     22
Now I'm running                      to the end  of the earth
        22  -  44 - 66   77 - 66 - 44       22 - 20     22
And I'm swimming                     to the edge of the sea
        22  -  44 - 66   77 - 66 - 44    22   -   20      22
And I'm laughing,                    I'm under a starry sky, this world was
E            E            G  G
Meant for me, don't bury me,  carry me...

[Back to normal with the chords now.]

I wish I was a nomad, an indian, or a saint
The edge of death would disappear, leave me nothing left to taint
I wish I was a nomad, an indian, or a saint
Give me walking shoes, feathered arms, and a key to heaven's gate

Oh, this world falls on me, dreams of immortality
Everywhere I turn, all the beauty just keeps shaking me
This world falls on me, with hopes of immortality
   (I'm runnin' to the end of the earth)
Everywhere I turn, all the beauty just keeps shaking me
   (I'm swimmin' to the edge to the sea)
This world falls on me, with hopes of immortality
   (And I'm laughing 'cause I'm under a starry sky)
Everywhere I turn, I got hopes of immortality
   (This world was meant for me, I got hopes of immortality)
D  Ds9(4)   D  Ds9(4)   D  Ds9(4)   Cmaj9(6).
[instrumental]


Here's some simplified tablature that should make the bridge a little
easier to understand: 

E 0-0-0-0---0---0-|0-0-0-0---0---0-|0-----0---0-0-0-|0---------0-0-0-|
B 0-0-0-0---0---0-|0-0-0-0---0---0-|0-----0---0-0-0-|0---------0-0-0-|
G 2-2-2-4---6---7-|7-7-7-6---4---2-|2-----0---0-0-0-|2-----2---2-2-2-|
D 2-2-2-4---6---7-|7-7-7-6---4---2-|2-----2---2-2-2-|2-----2---2-2-2-|
A 0-0-0-0---0---0-|0-0-0-0---0---0-|0-----0---0-0-0-|0-----0---0-0-0-|
E +---+---+---+---|+---+---+---+---|+---+---+---+---|+---+-0-+---+---|
