[Verse 1]
C                      D9
Lovers accustomed to tragedy
Em9/B                     Em             C
See every kiss in the window across the street
               D9              Em9/B          Em
Breezes and blessings passing by, ah ooh-oh.
C                       D9
I'm in the shade of the dogwood tree
Em9/B                  Em               C
Not the one where you told your name to me
           D9                  Em9/B     Em
Two hungry blackbirds land nearby, oh

[Chorus]
C          D9
If I could be
Em9/B             Em                 C
over you when the sky starts fallin'
             D9          Em9/B    Em
Would you be happy under me?
C          D9
If I could be
Em9/B            Em                C
under you if the Earth was burnin'
             D9           Em9/B   Em
Could you be trusted over me?

[Verse 2]
C                       D9
Spoke to a mother whose baby drowned
Em9/B                 Em            C
Gave me advice, or a rumor she once heard
            D9              Em9/B   Em
"Heaven's a distance, not a place," oh
C                        D9
Gave her an ear from the corn we grew
Em9/B                 Em                 C
You were away but she gave her thanks to you
           D9            Em9/B   Em
That was a year ago come May,    oh

[Chorus]
C          D9
If I could be
Em9/B             Em                C
over you when the sky starts fallin'
             D9              Em9/B  Em
Would you be smothered under me?
C          D9
If I could be
Em9/B            Em               C
under you if the Earth was burnin'
             D9          Em9/B  Em
Would you be cryin' over me?

[Verse 3]
C                        D9
I could hear kids in the yard next door
Em9/B                      Em             C
Cats in the brush when the calendar fell down
            D9                   Em9/B  Em
Wait by the shade-tree one more year,   oh
C                    D9
Poetry tempered with tragedy
Em9/B                       Em           C
Tempted and pulled when you cry upon my sleeve
              D9                  Em9/B   Em
Two flocks of blackbirds meet the air,    oh

[Chorus]
C          D9
If I could be
Em9/B             Em                 C
over you when the sky starts fallin'
             D9          Em9/B    Em
Would you be happy under me?
C          D9
If I could be
Em9/B            Em                C
under you if the Earth was burnin'
             D9           Em9/B   Em
Could you be trusted over me?
