Em G A B C Em x3

[Verse 1]
Em                     A
The handing down, the handing down
          C                 Em
Maybe the truth will not be shown
        Em              G    A           
And the dark will just roll on and on 

[verse 2]
Em                     G      A
O three rivers where's that star you once
C                   Em
Held above my faded dreams
Em               G     A
Heart worn more than some I guess
              C              Em
But I'm still holding at the seams
       A    C        Em
Still holding at the seams.

[verse 3]
Em              G   A
Scarecrow holds an hourglass 
          C               Em
Above the cross roads for me
Em                G    A
Filled with tears and twilight
       C              Em
From a friend's dying day
Em                      G        A
Here's a turkey feather for his favourite hat
      C                           Em
And a love letter from the ace of spades
       A               C      Em
A love letter from the ace of spades

Em G A B C
Em G A

[Verse 4]
Em        G       A
An anchor in the crown
                C        Em
Of Queen Anne's lace and chicory 
Em               G   A
A charm, a charm to drive away
        C            Em
All the heartaches I gave
        Em           G       A
All the goodbyes and the 'I love you's
  C               Em
I said but not in time
Em                    G   A
But mine is the heart of lonesome pine
        C                      Em
And the choices weren't always mine
     A              C      Em
The choices weren't always mine
