SONG:   Biting Your Tail
ARTIST: Iron and Wine
ALBUM:  Walking far from Home [Single]

STANDARD TUNING, NO CAPO

E                    
 may your eyes be wide and seeing
A
 may your learn from the view where you're kneeling
E
 know the fear of the world that you're feeling
B
 is the fear of a slave

E
 may you know how the fight was started
A
 want as much for the snake as the garden
E                       B
 wear them both like a glove
              E
that you can wave

E
 may your mouth betray your wisdom
A
 may you get what they fail to mention
E
 may your love be your only religion
B
 preach it to us all

E
 may you lose what you offer gladly
A
 may you worship the time and it's passing
E                   B  
 stars won't ever wait for you
               E
to watch them fall

C#m
  we're the smoke on a burnt horizon
A
 we're a boat on a tide that's rising
E
 both the post and the pig you're untying
B
 butcher gone for the blade

C#m
  someday we may all be happy
A
 someday all make a face worth slapping
E
 someday we may be shocked to be laughing
B
 at the way you behave

E
 may your hands be strong and willing
A
 may you know when to speak and to listen
E
 may you find every friend that you're missing
B
 there's no check in the mail

E
 may you end up bruised and purple
A
 know that peace is the shape of a circle
E                    B   
 round and round you go
E
 biting your tail

(synth part: E A E B E)

C#m
 we're the journey and the wind is whipping
A
 short hands on the clock still ticking
E
 both the egg and the red fox grinning
B
 his belly full for the day

C#m
 someday we may  all want nothing
A
 and all forget that we'll get whats coming
E
 someday all say the world was something
B
 that we just couldnt change

E
 may your tongue be soft and wicked
A
 know your part in the calf and the killing
E
 see straight through the captain you're kissing
B
 helm lose in his hand

E
 may your words be well worth stealing
A
 put your hand on your heart while singing
E                    B
 choirs sick of the song
                     E
but they still gotta stand
