Am   G/B  F    Dm7
Am   G/B  C

Am                  G/B
Maybe I push when I meant to be still
F                   Dm7
Maybe I take it all too personal
Am         G/B          C
    Jesus, how to reconcile
    Am                G/B
The joyful noise, the ancient land
       F                Dm7
The tug from some invisible hand
    Am           G/B            Dm7
The dying mother weaving bulrushes
          F
Along the Nile

C         G/B             Am
Float her basket over the sea
          F                      G
Here on a barren shore, we'll be waiting for
  C           G/B                Am
A tailwind to carry her orphan's cry
          F                      G
Don't you worry child, I wrote a lullaby

  Am                   G/B
I try to settle, but I just pass through
     F        Dm7                Am
A rain dog, a gypsy, a wandering Jew
          G/B             C
All those homes where not ours
       Am                 G/B
Then I slept one night in Abraham's field
    F                   Dm7               Am     G/B
And dreamt there was no moon the night he died
         F
Counting stars, Selah
 
Chorus to Bridge: G

Am                 G                    Am
    Building you a home, building you a home
               G                          Dm7   F
Building you a home, we're Building you a home, Selah

C         G/B             Am
Float her basket over the sea
          F                      G
Here on a barren shore, we'll be waiting for
  C           G/B                Am
A tailwind to carry her orphan's cry
          F                      G
Don't you worry child, I wrote a lullaby
C         G/B             Am
Float her basket over the sea
          F                      G
Here on a barren shore, we'll be waiting for
  C           G/B                 Am
A tailwind to bring us your sweet cry
          F                                 G
Don't you worry child, I'm gonna sing you a lullaby

End:
Am   G/B  F    Dm7
Am   G/B  C
