From the CD "Sky Full of Holes" (2011)


| D  A | G | D  A | G | D  A | G | D  Dsus | A |

 D        A    D               G                      Bm
Elizabeth that thundercloud is creeping up the Empire Hill
        Em              F#m G
There's shadows on the over-pass
    Em                 F#m  G
And puddles in the old dirt path
  D    A   D                   G                Bm
Peoria lay silent still in the belly of the overgrown
    Em            F#m G
All quiet on the open plain
    Em                F#m G
Footprints to the family  plot
      A             D        G      A          F#m    G    
Where evermore will restless sorrow sleep in a broken heap

(F# G A)

G                G
Cemetery guns go bang, bang, bang
D                            G
Shooting all the sky full of holes
D          F#m        G
Twenty-one times in a row
        Bm                    G
For the blue war widow in the gray raincoat
       A                | D    A  |  G  |  
On the green grass down below

| D  A | G | D  A | G | D  Dsus | A |

 D        A   D                G                            Bm 
Elizabeth our fathers came and settled where the ground was flat
     Em               F#m  G
Drew water from the Indian wells
    Em                 F#m  G
Cut timber from the rolling fells
    D       A    D                   G                  Bm
Grandaddy-o bled hearth and home for oiling the comp'ny gears
   Em             F#m  G
No rest for the errant ones
   Em                F#m  G
Godspeed their a-reckless sons
    A             D         G        A            F#m     G     
Who evermore play their forefathers' hands on the foreign sands

(F# G A)

G                G
Cemetery guns go bang, bang, bang
D                            G
Shooting all the sky full of holes
D          F#m        G
Twenty-one times in a row
        Bm                    G
For the blue war widow in the gray raincoat
       A                  Bm    
On the green grass down below

Em               G           A
Cemetery guns go bang, bang, bang
D                            G
Shooting all the sky full of holes
D          F#m        G
Twenty-one times in a row
        Bm                    G
For the blue war widow in the gray raincoat
       A                | D    A  |  G  |  
On the green grass down below

| D  A | G | D  A | G | D  Dsus | A2 |



F#m in the verse is essentially a walk up from the Em chord to the G chord. It can 
be played as a full chord, or as a bass note.
