Laura Marling - The Captain and The Hourglass

Capo: 1st Fret


Intro - Em

             G                               Em
You kick the blow, now you've gotta kick the guy.
         G                    Em
You sat alone under billowing sky
          D           Em
If I feel God judging me,
                     D                  Em
Well I fell into the water, and now I’m free.

    Em
My friends they don’t really get me, 

think I’m the only one
        G               D               C              Em
Well i sold my soul to Jesus and since then ive had no fun
        Em 
Behind every tree is a cutting machine and a kite fallen from grace
        G              D                     C             Em
Inside every man is a heart of sand you can see it in his face.

       Em                                 D
He’ll tick tick tick tick tick tick tick away.
         Em                             D
Another second lost with every fallen grain.
       Em                                 D
He’ll tick tick tick tick tick tick tick away.
         Em                            D
Another second lost with every fallen grain.

     Em                                    
The wind and I, we speak the same, but he don’t hear so well.
        D
You’re gonna have to curse him,
             Em
Well you’re gonna have to yell.
     Em
The sky and I, we’ve had our fights and I’m coming round to rain,
        G                   D
If the rain come round and don’t go out, 
          C                   Em
and I’ll never have to speak again,

       Em                                 D
I can tick tick tick tick tick tick tick away.
         Em                             D
Another second lost with every fallen grain.
     Em                                 D
Can tick tick tick tick tick tick tick away.
         Em                            D
Another second lost with every fallen grain.

     Em
The captains got his boots on and he’s heading out the door,
 D                               Em
Leaving his lady alone thinkin' "He don’t love me no more."
      Em           
He’s done with all this bullshit, 

He’s going back to war,
    G            D
If Heaven is as Heaven does,
      C                Em
then this is Hell for sure...


           Em                                 D
And he’ll tick tick tick tick tick tick tick away.
         Em                             D
Another second lost with every fallen grain.
       Em                                 D
He’ll tick tick tick tick tick tick tick away.
         Em                            D
Another second lost with every fallen grain.

             G                               Em
You kick the blow, now you've gotta kick the guy.
         G                    Em
You sat alone under billowing sky
          D           Em
If I feel God judging me,
                     D              Em
Well I fell into the water, now I’m free.
