Hard Sun - Eddie Vedder 
Tab by Chris Morris

Tune down 1/2 step

E	
When I walk beside her 
D
I am the better man
A
When I look to leave her 
	E
I always stagger back again

E
Once I built an Ivory tower 
D
so I could worship from above
A
When I climb down to be set free 
	E
she took me in again

E	
there's a big
		D
A big hard sun
		A
beaten on the big people
		E
in the big hard world

E
When she comes to greet me
D
She is mercy at my feet
A
When I see her pin her charm
	E
She just throws it back at me

E
Once I dug an early grave 
D
To find a better land
A
She just smile and laughed at me 
	E
And took her bruise back again



E	
there's a big
		D
A big hard sun
		A
beaten on the big people
		E
in the big hard world

(Repeat x2)

E
Once I stood to lose her
D
when I saw what I had done
A
bound down and flew away the hours
	E
of her garden and her sun

E
so I tried to warn her
D
I turned to see her weep
A
40 days and 40 nights
	E
and it's still coming down on me

E	
there's a big
		D
A big hard sun
		A
beaten on the big people
		E
in the big hard world

(Repeat and Fade)

Here are the lyrics off of the liner notes from the original artist Gordon Peterson: Hard Sun Words & Music by Gordon
Peterson
When I walk beside her I am the better man
When I look to leave her I always stagger back again
Once I built
an ivory tower so I could worship from above
And when I climbed down to be set free she took me in again
There's a big
A big hard sun
Beating on the big people In the big hard world
When she comes to greet me She is mercy at my
feet
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
There's a big A big hard sun
Beating on the big people In
the big hard world
When I go to cross that river She is comfort by my side
When I try to understand She just opens up
her hands
There's a big A big hard sun
Beating on the big people In the big hard world
Once I stood to lose her and
when I saw what I had done
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
Fourty days and fourty nights and it's still coming down on me There's a big A big hard
sun
Beating on the big peopleIn the big hard world
