[Intro]
Bm   D   Em  G

[Verse]
Bm                                  D
Smooth stones have fallen once more out of the sky now like rain
Em                             G
I'm outside on the front lawn, getting beaten black and blue again
Bm                                          D
Lookin' back now I always preferred, child, my enemies to my friends
E                                              G
It always just seemed logical, like something constant, upon which you can depend
Bm                                           D
If my father was an earthquake, now, then my mother was a hurricane
E                          G
Me I've got my hands full, walkin' in a straight line, remembering my own name

[Chorus]
Bm                                     G
     I was born in the trees around my home

Bled fire out into the arms of the sky
Bm                Bb                    Gm
The world snapped beneath your feet and every thing that was alive had died
E                                                     G
I was born to a cold wind, take the words out of your mouth, the color out of your eyes
       Em
I just keep what I can carry now, and leave the rest behind

Bm  D   E   G

[Verse]
Bm                                      D           
I heard stories of those city lights as I head out among the trees
E                                       G
Bows bendin' like a spider web, letting no light in for the eye to see
Bm                       D
Fireflies, summer skies, downward pressure of the heat
E                                          G
I sneak down that gravel at night til your black eye is hotter than the Tennessee concrete

[Chorus]
Bm                     Bb              G
     I was born in the trees around my home

Bled fire out into the arms of the sky
Bm                Bb                         G
The world snapped beneath your feet and everything that was alive had died
      Em                                              G
I was born to a cold wind, take the words out of your mouth, the color out of your eyes
Em                               G
I just keep what I can carry now and leave the rest behind

Bm   D   E   G
Bm   D   E   G

[Verse]
Bm                                D
Clear to go there's a heavy load, watch the human car castle fall apart
Em                                                      G
I'll tell you right now it's more about the stomach out here than it is about the heart
Bm                                D
See a man now playing in a dark cafe with everybody's back turned
E                                                 G
Sometimes we've just gotta put our hands into the fire, to make sure that it still burns
Bm                              D
Red light at them downtown bars pours out and puddles in the streets
E                                        G
I know that some of you out there are starving, but it ain't for lack of something to eat

[Chorus]
Bm                Bb
I was born in the trees around my home
G
Bled fire out into the eyes of the sky
Bm                 Bb                         G
The world snapped, beneath your feet and everything that was alive had died
      E                                               G
I was born to a cold wind, take the words out of your mouth, the color out of your eyes
Em                           G                             
Just keep what you can carry now, and leave the rest behind

Bm   D    E    G
Bm   D    Em   G
