The verses are basically the first half of the intro plus some chords so I'm
just going to write out the chords over the lyrics.

Verse 1:


Em              Cmaj7
    Wrapt, in “Star Wars” sheets, 
Em                           Cmaj7
    with my hand across your belly, 
G       D                Cmaj7
    we waded through the watercolor. 
G       D                Cmaj7
    we waded through the watercolor.
	
Em                    Cmaj7	
    And drunk in your parents house, 
Em                      Cmaj7
    junk coming out of your mouth, 
G           D             Cmaj7
    we were buried in the ice sculpture, 
G           D             Cmaj7
    we were buried in the ice sculpture, 
Cmaj7
    and you said 
	
	
Chorus:	
G               D             Am           C
“I would be anything that you wanted me to be, 
G               D             Am           C
I would be anything that you wanted me to be,
G               D             Am           C
I would be anything that you wanted me to be,
	C            D
but how could I change my body?” 

Guitar Solo:

Second time through is basically the same but play a C maj to end it.


Verse 2:
Em                               Cmaj7
	I love the picture that your mother stole; 
	
Em								Cmaj7

Em                          Cmaj7                       Em      Cmaj7
    dad holds out the tiny piece he’ll release from his soul - 
G               D          	  C
    before he flew up in the helicopter, 
G             D                 C
    before he swooped down as a door gunner, 
G          D            C
    before God gave him the favor 
G                 D             C
    that meant he isn’t getting others. 


Chorus:	
G               D             Am           C
“I would be anything that you wanted me to be, 
G               D             Am           C
I would be anything that you wanted me to be,
G               D             Am           C
I would be anything that you wanted me to be,
	C			D
but how could I change my body?”
