Intro:
FCGC FCG

          F           C             G           C
Sunday morning, my Rebecca sleeping in with me again
          F                 C               G     
There's a kid outside the church kicking a can
           F             C                    G             C
When the cedar branches twist she turns her collar to the wind
       F                  C                 G        
The weather can close the world within its hand

         F             C         G                 C
And my mother says Rebecca is as stubborn as they come
           F               C             G
They both call to me with words I never knew
           F              C                  G               C
There's a bug inside the thimble, there's a band-aid on her thumb
       F           C             G
And a pony in the river turning blue
             F                C                  G                 C
They say, "Time may give you more than your poor bones could ever take"
     F               C             G
My Rebecca says she never wants a boy   
        F              C                G             C
To be barefoot on the driveway as they wave and ride away
         F              C             G
Then to run inside and curse the open door

         F         C         G              C
I once gave to my Rebecca a belated promise ring
        F               C           G     
And she sold it to the waitress on a train
       F               C               G             C
I may find her by the phone but with a fashion magazine
        F                 C                G
She may kiss me when her girlfriends leave again
           F                  C                    G              C
They say, "Time may give you more than your poor bones could ever take"
        F               C            G
I think I could never love another girl
      F           C                 G              C
To be free atop a tree stump and to look the other way
          F                  C         G
While she shines my mother's imitation pearls


Solo

        F         C                G              C
Sunday evening my Rebecca's lost a book she never read
        F            C             G
And the moon already fell into the sea
         F             C              G                 C
Saw the statues of our fathers in the courthouse flower bed
         F                  C                  G
Now they blend with all the lightning-tattered trees
          F                  C                   G                C
They say, "Time may give you more than your poor bones could ever take"
   F                C               G
My Rebecca said she knew I'd want a boy
  F             C             G                 C
A dollar for my boardwalk red balloon, to float away
          F             C             G
She would earn a pocketful to buy me more
