Emily White - My Brother And I


## NOTE: ~ ~ ~ = Walk-Down from F to Am ##




INTRO: F ~ ~ ~ Am

                          C
My brother and I, we grew up in a war
      D                              F
In our shell-shocked living room, we knelt to the floor
   Am                            C
We prayed for a saviour who would keep us from the heat
      D                       F  ~   ~     Am   Asus2  Am
As the bombs flew around with no sign of defeat


N.C.     Am                             C
He would tell me bedtime stories and I'd sing him Easter songs
      D                        F
And we both knew the truth, we both played along
    Am                          C
Our mother, she tried to keep us out of harm's way
           D                                 F    ~ ~ ~    Am  Asus2  Am 
But it's a hard thing when harm eats at your table    everyday


CHORUS:
Am Em Em7   C         Am
We___ were the  same
           Em   Em7 C       
He had the cuts and I felt the shame
    Am Em Em7   C         Am Em Em7 C
Oh, we___ were the  same
               Am  Em C       D   F ~ ~ ~ 
My brother and I,     ye-ah


   Am                      C
He learned to escape in any way that he could
    D                        F
And we both moved out of that neighbourhood
          Am                C
There are two sides to every story of growing up
        D                     F   ~    ~   ~  Am  Asus2  Am
And when he shielded me, I was holding him up


N.C.      Am                C                             D
There were two children who survived on that street, yeah
                                  F     ~       ~   ~         Am
And his head dreamt my dreams, my heart pounded his beat, and
                       C
And three years ago, I thought nothing could save me
  D                          F  ~    ~      ~    Am  Asus2  Am 
I, I buried half my memory, I called myself crazy


CHORUS:
Am Em Em7   C         Am
We___ were the  same
           Em   Em7 C         
He had the cuts and I felt the shame
    Am Em Em7   C         Am Em Em7 C  D  Em-F-G-Am-Asus2
Oh, we___ were the  same


INSTRUMENTAL: Am   C   D   F ~ ~ ~  (2x) 

    Am                   C
So, tell me a story of a, a family of four
       D                         F                    Am
And the mom loves the dad and the dad loves her more
                                 C
Colour it in with crayon, make it beautiful and bright
 D                               F     ~ ~ ~  Am   Asus2  Am 
I swear I'll believe whatever you tell me   tonight


CHORUS:
Am Em Em7   C         Am
We___ were the  same
           Em   Em7 C       
He had the cuts and I felt the shame
    Am Em Em7   C         Am Em Em7 C
Oh, we___ were the  same
               Am  Em C       D   F ~ ~ ~ F G Am
My brother and I,     ye-ah
