Capo 3 

[Verse 1]
It was the dead of winter
The cold was in our bones
And our shelves stood barren
As we had ever known

[Verse 2]     
       F       C           F          G
So our mother stands on the porch one evening
    F       C              G     F
The silent crack in her stormy mask 
    C       G         F               F
she looked up at the sky, and said "please"

F,C,G,C,F,C,G (x2)

[Verse 3]
            C                                   F
And by the turn of summer we packed up all we owned
            C                                   F
And with my mom and brothers we started for the coast
    C                       G            F
And I would count all the clouds on the way
            C                                   F
And you and I would name them while the world around us changed
     F           C             F          G            F          C                 
And I remember asking if the place we're moving would have more food
         G     F        C      G      F
And my mother grew as distant as can be
and mouthed, "please"

F,C,G,C,F,C,G (x2)

   C             F            C
So I, so tired eyes, pay no mind
       F                  G
The river of time will drown these days out
C,F,C,F,C,F,C,F,G (Hold G)

[Verse 4]
C                                                    F
It was the year just after we stood and watched the sea
        C                                  F
And my mom was smiling no longer saying please

The version I have is Capo I. Also, the chords above the words "Crack" and "Place" should both be Am. For a slightly mre advanced version, play Csus2 and Csus4 on the C chords matching the singing melody. It's not too hard to figure out
