    C      G     Am
The giant of Illinois
F            C              G
 Died from a blister on his toe

      C           G               Am             F
After walking all day through the first winter's snow

C        G             Am
Throwing bits of stale bread
F         C           G
 To the last speckled doves
  C           G        Am           F
He never even felt his shoe full of blood

  C            G                 Am             F
Delirious with pain, his bedroom walls began to glow
      C             G       Am                 F
And he felt himself soaring up through falling snow


    C             G       Am
And the sky was a woman's arms
    C         G       C
The sky was a woman's arms

  C        G      Am
A boy with a club foot
F          C            G
 Had sat next to him in school
 C          G                      Am                    F
Once upon a summer's day they went wandering through the woods

     C         G        Am
They spotted a sleeping swan
       F    C           G
On the banks of a muddy stream
         C               G             Am               F
And they stormed it with rocks till it collapsed in the reeds

     C            G                  Am            F
They lay out on a green lawn full of chocolate and lemonade
    C         G             Am        F
But under the blue bowl the giant was afraid

            C         G       Am
Because the sky was a woman's arms
    C         G       C
The sky was a woman's arms

the intro is pretty obviously not right if you listen to the song.
