[Second Verse]

[Tempo slows)

   G           Em

My heart is full of swords

Am        C       G

Full of, full of swords

G              Em        Am C G

Your love, it knows the Lord


G                   Em

Tie my hands and I’m on my knees

Am                 C                G

As I kneel down, I kneel down in the sea

G               Em

To the ocean floor, I will sink

Am             C             G

Like a steel chest full of weapons

G                        Em

And all in spite of the tide, you will rise

Am                C           G

Like a red, ripe, red, ripe apple


G                  Em

Take a swim in the dirty water

Am      C         G

Dear Arkansas Daughter

G                   Em
Take a swim in the dirty water

Am         C                 G

Darling, child, true love of mine

[Repeat in place of the solo] : G Em Am C G

That main fast series of chords is B A Em G. You're showing Em and D for the first two.
