Verse 1:

Am            Em            G
The old man's been stealing
Am            Em            G
She's holding her grievance for a hundred-odd years
Am          Em        G
We all keep believing
Am           Em             G
That history repeats itself year after year

Verse 2:

Am    Em          G          Am
All I fear's that the future is worse
Am      Em            G                Am
We have to give in to the hundred-year curse
Am           Em          G          Am
Sweat in the sun like we're diggin' a grave
Am       Em             G             Am
Dig deep enough and our fortune we'll save

Am        Em        G              Am
"If only, if only," the woodpecker sighs,
Am               Em           G           Am
"The bark on the trees was as soft as the skies,"
Am                Em     G          Am
As the wolf waits below, hungry and lonely
Am              Em       G         Am
He cries to the mo-oo-n, "If only, if only."

Am          Em         G
Chasin' the skirt of a beautiful wife
Am       Em                G
You make mistakes and it's my back that breaks
Am          Em      G
And forever my past steals my life
Am            Em       G
To submission I'm beat but there's hope beneath these feet

Am           Em            G             Am
Blisters and blood and the sun makes you blind
Am               Em          G                 Am
You don't let it eat 'til it can't help but be kind
Am                     Em                  G           Am
'Cause you know what's important with your back to the wall
Am            Em                     G                     Am
You can break metal chains when your friends don't let you fall

Am        Em        G              Am
"If only, if only," the woodpecker sighs,
Am               Em           G           Am
"The bark on the trees was as soft as the skies,"
Am                Em     G          Am
As the wolf waits below, hungry and lonely
Am              Em       G         Am
He cries to the mo-oo-n, "If only, if only."

I'm a sword but I find myself blunt

I have no blade, I'm more like a feather 
But I can't fly away when I'm fighting myself

Am        Em        G              Am
"If only, if only," the woodpecker sighs,
Am               Em           G           Am
"The bark on the trees was as soft as the skies,"
Am                Em     G          Am
As the wolf waits below, hungry and lonely
Am              Em       G         Am
He cries to the mo-oo-n, "If only, if only."

Am        Em        G              Am
"If only, if only," the woodpecker sighs,
Am               Em           G           Am
"The bark on the trees was as soft as the skies,"
Am                Em     G          Am
As the wolf waits below, hungry and lonely
Am              Em       G         Am
He cries to the mo-oo-n, "If only, if only."
