Jonah & The Whale
Old Man Luedecke
Tender is the Night (2012)

Probably not perfect, but it's a wonderful song. Let me know if there's anything that could be improved.

No intro


[Verse 1]
                             C   
Well Jonah bore the mark of Cain
     Am                        D
His wife had thrown him out again
         G                    C
They’d moved the country all around
 Am                       D
Hit the wall in Fort Mac town
           G                    C
When his wife said she couldn’t bear
           Am                           D
She said “you’re moving on, I’m staying here”
          Em      C         D
She said “oh my hands are tied”
          Em      C         D
She said “oh my hands are tied”


[Chorus]
              G                    C             G          
Jonah Cried: “Oh Lord, I’m in the belly of the whale
        Am            D
when I try I still fail
             G                      C                 G
It’s been a long time of nothing, this old crime of nothing
 Am             D               G
Thin dime of nothing is killing me, 
       G                   C         G
You’re not the one whose hands are tied


[Verse 2]
G                       C  
No one sees the mark of Cain
        Am                          D
It’s a funny feeling you can’t explain
     G                     C
the boys gave Jonah wider berth
            Am                 D
He seemed lower down than the earth
           G                             C
When he begged and pleaded for another chance
      Am                    D
the foreman took a harder stance
         Em     C         D
he said “oh my hands are tied” 
         Em     C         D
he said “oh my hands are tied” 


[Chorus]
              G                    C            G 
Jonah Cried: “Oh Lord, I’m in the belly of the whale
        Am            D
when I try I still fail
             G                      C                 G
It’s been a long time of nothing, this old crime of nothing
 Am             D               G
Thin dime of nothing is killing me, 
       G                   C         G
You’re not the one whose hands are tied


[Verse 3]
  G                      C
Jonah tossed out on the sea
   Am       D
On suicide 63
    G                 C
Suddenly a blinding light
  Am                         D
shook the car with all its’ might
 G                      C
Deep inside he heard a voice
  Am                   D
Offering him a final choice 
         Em         C        D
It said “let your hands be untied”
         Em         C        D
It said "let your hands be untied"


[Chorus]
              G                    C            G         
Jonah Cried: “Oh Lord, I’m in the belly of the whale
        Am            D
when I try I still fail
             G                      C                 G
It’s been a long time of nothing, this old crime of nothing
 Am             D               G
Thin dime of nothing is killing me, 
     G             C         G
Well I can see my hands are tied
