Intro
Em G Am G F#m 

Em                                     G
All the leaves on the Giving Tree have fallen
            D             G    F#
No shade to crawl in underneath
Em
I've got scars from a pocket knife
      G               Am         Em    D
Where you carved your heart into me

           C          G
If all you wanted was love
              D   B  G
Why would you use me up
       C     D                      G        
Cut me down, build a boat, and sail away
           C         G      B           Em
When all I wanted to be was your giving tree
Em7    C             D                  G
Settle down, build a home, and make you happy?

Em                               G    
I lie in the dead of night and I wonder
      D             G      F#
Whose covers you're between
Em
And it's sad laying in his bed
         G              D                  G    D
You feel hollow, so you crawl home back to me

           C          G
If all you wanted was love
              D   B  G
Why would you use me up
       C     D                      G        
Cut me down, build a boat, and sail away
           C         G      B           Em
When all I wanted to be was your giving tree
Em7    C             D                  G
Settle down, build a home, and make you happy?
Am
Well, I see a trail that starts
C                         G
A line of broken hearts behind you
              D
That lead you back to me
Am
The once sad and lonely fool
C                              D     D4 D
With nothing left but roots to show, oh oh

           C          G
If all you wanted was love
              D   B  G
Why would you use me up
       C     D                      G        
Cut me down, build a boat, and sail away
           C         G      B           Em
When all I wanted to be was your giving tree
Em7    C             D                  G
Settle down, build a home, and make you happy?

(One Strum per chord)
       C             D                  G
Settle down, build a home, and make you happy?
