Tabbed by Newfie49

G       
When I walk beside her 
Fadd9
I am the better man
C
When I look to leave her 
           G
I always stagger back again

G
Once I built an Ivory tower 
Fadd9
so I could worship from above
C
And when I climbed down to be set free 
    G
she took me in again

CHORUS
G       
there's a big
                Dm7
A big hard sun
                C
beaten on the big people
                G
in the big hard world
END CHORUS

G
When she comes to greet me
Fadd9
She is mercy at my feet
C
When I stay to pillage her
           G
She just throws it back at me
G
Once I dug an early grave 
Fadd9
To find a better land
C
She just smiled and laughed at me 
               G
And took her blues back again

CHORUS X2

G
When I go to cross that river
Fadd9
She is comfort by my side
C
When I try to understand
        G
She just opens up her hands

INSTRUMENTAL BREAK
CHORUS

G
Once I stood to lose her
Fadd9
And when I saw what I had done
C
Burned down and threw away the hours
       G
of her garden and her sun

G
so I tried to warn her
Fadd9
And turned to see her weep
C
40 days and 40 nights
                 G
and it's still coming down on me

CHORUS > fade
