Passig Afternoon – Iron & Wine
Tabbed by: puderjunge

Tuning: Standard, Capo 2nd

This is a correction of a tab I found here. I felt like the Em didn't do the job 
for the harmonics.

           F                   C              C        F
There are times that walk from you like some passing afternoon 
C                  C          F         C
Summer warmed the open window of her honeymoon 
          F              C              C              F
And she chose a yard to burn, but the ground remembers her 
C                     C                   F         C
Wooden spoons, her children stir her bougainvillea blooms 

            F               C              C                F
There are things that drift away like our endless, numbered days 
C                 C                   F             C
Autumn blew the quilt right off the perfect bed she made 
            F          C            C                F
And she's chosen to believe in the hymns her mother sings 
C                   C                 F               C
Sunday pulls its children from their piles of fallen leaves 

             F                C             C            F
There are sailing ships that pass all our bodies in the grass 
C                       C                F              C
Springtime calls her children 'till she lets them go at last 
            F             C                 C               F
And she's chosen where to be, though she's lost her wedding ring 
C                      C                 F         C
Somewhere near her misplaced jar of bougainvillea seeds 

             F              C               C                  F
There are things we can't recall, blind as night that finds us all 
C                   C               F            C
Winter tucks her children in, her fragile china dolls 
         F             C              C                F
But my hands remember hers, rolling 'round the shaded ferns 
C                  C                F                C
Naked arms, her secrets still like songs I'd never learned 

            F               C         C         F
There are names across the sea, only now I do believe 
C                      C                   F               C
Sometimes, with the windows closed, she'll sit and think of me 
             F                  C                 C              F
But she'll mend his tattered clothes and they'll kiss as if they know 
C                 C                  F           C
A baby sleeps in all our bones, so scared to be alone
