 D(Dmaj 2nd inv) A   Bm
The giant of Illinois
G            D              A
 Died from a blister on his toe

      D           A               F#maj           G
After walking all day through the first winter's snow

D        A             Bm
Throwing bits of stale bread
G         D           A
 To the last speckled doves
  D           A        F#maj            G
He never even felt his shoe full of blood

  Bm                              F#m             
Delirious with pain, his bedroom walls began to glow
      A                     Em                 
And he felt himself soaring up through falling snow


    G             A       Bm
And the sky was a woman's arms
    G         A       D
The sky was a woman's arms

Mmm mmm mmm oh oh oh etc
  
A boy with a club foot
Had sat next to him in school
Once upon a summer's day they went wandering through the woods
They spotted a sleeping swan
On the banks of a muddy stream

And they stormed it with rocks till it collapsed in the reeds

They lay out on a green lawn full of chocolate and lemonade
But underneath it all the giant was afraid

And the sky was a woman's arms
And the sky was a woman's arms


Play this when I die
| /  slide up
| \  slide down
| h  hammer-on
| p  pull-off
| ~  vibrato
| +  harmonic
| x  Mute note

The only error I see is in the electric part, the second piece of guitar 1, the '6x865' is off
