(Lyrics suggestions would be most appreciated; particularly the first line of the second verse and 
confirmation of the third verse. If you really want to assist me here, listen to the lines and try to decipher
them before reading my interpretation so you aren't influenced. A better audio only recording of the same
performance can be heard here --> https://archive.org/details/joshritter2015-05-29. Also an amazing resource
in general for listening to recordings of live shows!)

Capo 5 (Capo 2 in a different performance)
Fmaj7 - xx3210

[Intro]
Am    Am    Am    Am

[Verse 1]
Am                             C/G
Buried momma standing with the knife still in her chest,
   F                                C/G        G
As per her last instructions in her death.
             Am                          C/G 
Said, “You’ll never get to Heaven son so go to Hell real slow.”
        Dm                              Dm
But the ground don’t want me momma, the ground don’t want me, no, no, no

Am (G transition)

[Chorus]
F                       C/G
What is the body if the soul has flown?
G                  C/G
Has it only been forgotten?
F                      C/G
I wanna’ lay down in a field of bone,
G                       F
But an angel guards the garden.

Am    C/G    G    Fmaj7 
Am    C/G    G    Fmaj7

[Verse 2]
        Am                            C/G
I killed men and blew out Barberco, new life in Crystal Wells
   F                             C/G                G
In every town the broken hearted rang their steeple bells
    Am                   C/G
For every man a box, for every hole a rose.
        Dm                              Dm
And the ground don’t want me momma, the ground don’t want me, no, no, no.

Am (G transition)

[Chorus]
F                       C/G
What is the body if the soul has flown?
G                  C/G
Has it only been forgotten?
F                      C/G
I wanna’ lay down in a field of bone,
G                       F                             Am
But an angel guards the garden, an angel guards the garden.

      C/G    G    Fmaj7
Am    C/G    G    Fmaj7

[Verse 3]
        Am                                C/G
Then one morning near Arcana, a chance to watch some violets rise
      F                            C/G              G
Their lunar blues undoing down the fasting stays of night
   Am                               C/G
Now lord how sweet to sleep beneath flowers such as those  
        Dm                              Dm
But the ground don’t want me momma, the ground don’t want me, no, no, no

Am (G transition)

[Chorus]
F                       C/G
What is the body if the soul has flown?
G                  C/G
Has it only been forgotten?
F                      C/G
I wanna’ lay down in a field of bone,
G                       F                           Am
But an angel guards the garden, an angel guards the garden.


      C/G    G    Fmaj7
Am    C/G    G    Fmaj7 

Am
