C             D
we picked our way
Bb           Ebmaj7
down to the beach
Cm           F             Bb           Gm
watching the waves dragging out of our reach
Am7        Ab          F       C
dangling impales like a sodden sheep
Am7          Ab           F             C
dangling on thrills from the gut of the sea
C           D
hoarding our means
Bb           Ebmaj7
alfalfa and rose
Cm            F                Bb       Gm
trying not to catch the cold eye of the gulls
   Am7         Ab       F       C
i hope mother nature has not overheard
            Am7      Ab         F      C
though she doles out hurt like a buchan bird

C               E
stayed for the winter
D      F#m                C            Em
no one told us about the laws of the land
Bb        Dm
i hold my own
    C               E
but you with your hunger
D         F#m       C   Em
you arm the other hand
Bb            Dm
make yourself known
    C             D
and when we were found
  Bb           Ebmaj7
i know we both grieved
    Cm            F              Bb           Gm
my heart made the sound of snow falling from leaves
Am7          Ab
you and me, bess
   F                  C
we were as thick as thieves
     Am7         Ab
so i swore nonetheless
F                      C
up and down it was only me
      C         D
so they took me away
    Bb          Ebmaj7
and after some time
Cm          F
studying my case
Bb                    Gm
must've made up their minds
Am7            Ab         F      C
by the time you realized i was dying
Am7              Ab
must've been too late
   F                   C 
i believe you were not lying

C         E      D        F#m            C         Em
it is the day i wake with my ears cocked up like a dawn
Bb       Dm
like everyday, of course
C            E            D           F#m
yanked by my wrist to the sugar front courtyard
        C            Em
tell me what have i done
Bb           Dm
seems i have stolen a horse
    C              E
and escaped to the gallows
D       F#m                C
who do you think that you are
Em Bb        Dm      
arching your hooves like a queen
C       E      D           F#m        C    Em
in the shallow gutter that lines the roof
Bb           Dm              C         D
crowded with folks who just stare as i hang
Bb            Ebmaj7
it's all the same
Cm             F
kindness comes over me
Bb             Gm
what was your name
Am7          Ab
it makes no difference
    F             C
I'm glad that you came
    Am7        Ab              F  C
forever i'll listen to your glad name 

Am7, Ab, F, C x 8
