A pretty simple, easy to play version of "Buildings" 
    
         D     A     E                   D          A      E
He was a husband who drove his wife home drunk from the parties 
         D     A     E                  D A E
He was a husband who drove his wife home 
           D            A      E             D      A         E
And in the car he would gently lean her head on the side door window 
           D       A         E                      D     A     E
And in the bathroom he would hold her hair back and hope, saying: 

D        A                D        A                
Oh, they build buildings, oh, they build buildings, 
D        A                F#m      E                
Oh, they build buildings, oh, they build buildings,
D        A                D        A                
Oh, they build buildings, oh, they build buildings,
D        A               E             A
Oh, they build buildings so tall these days 

           D      A      E           D      A             E
And in the morning she'd wake up and crouch recollections all day 
              D      A      E                D      A E
But she would always always wake up the next morning 
         D        A                 E      D        A  E
And he'd take one look at her and say, oh, oh, it's okay
        D         A      E                 D    A       E
And her conscience would issue yet another last warning, saying; 

D        A                D        A                
Oh, they build buildings, oh, they build buildings, 
D        A                F#m      E                
Oh, they build buildings, oh, they build buildings,
D        A                D        A                
Oh, they build buildings, oh, they build buildings,
D        A               E             A
Oh, they build buildings so tall these days 

              F#m                    D
And she would ask for time and she'd ask for time
          E                      A
And she'd ask for time and she'd ask for time  
              F#m                    D               E          A
And she would beg for time and she'd beg for time and call it a gift
          
             F#m                    D
And he would give her time and he'd give her time 
         E                      A
And he'd give her time and he'd give her time
    F#m                   D
But time is not given and time is not taken 
       E                  A
It just sifts through its sieve
    F#m                   D
But time is not given and time is not taken 
       E                  A
It just sifts through its sieve

D A E  D A E

                 D    A E                     D    A E
Sift through its sieve, just sift through its sieve
    D A E  D A E                  D    A E                       D    A E
Oh, darling......sift through its sieve....just sift through its sieve

                D          A          E
And it would be coffee and coffee and coffee 
               D          A           E
And coffee and coffee and coffee some more 
D       A           E                         D      A       E
He'd go to work and she'd take a sick day and rot at the core 
           
           D            A           E
And by the time he came back, she'd scrub the bathrooms 
    D         A          E
And make them smell like pine 
            D         A  E
It would be almost as if nothing had happened 
    D         A       E             D         A       E
And he'd give her time, oh, oh, and he'd give her time, saying:

D        A                D        A                
Oh, they build buildings, oh, they build buildings, 
D        A                    F#m              E                
Oh, they build buildings, oh, don't they build buildings,
D        A                D        A                
Oh, they build buildings, oh, they build buildings,
D        A               E             A
Oh, they build buildings so tall these days 

              F#m                    D
And she would ask for time and she'd ask for time 
          E                      A     
And she'd ask for time and she'd beg for time
              F#m                    D                E         A
And she would beg for time and she'd beg for time and call it a gift 
          
             F#m                    D
And he would give her time and he'd give her time
         E                      A
And he'd give her time and he'd give her time
    F#m                   D
But time is not given and time is not taken 
       E                  A
It just sifts through its sieve
    F#m                   D
But time is not given and time is not taken 
       E                  A
It just sifts through its sieve

D A E  D A E

                     D    A E                D    A E
Oh, sift through its sieve, sift through its sieve
    D A E  D A E                  D    A E                  D    A E
Oh, ooh..........sift through its sieve....sift through its sieve

         D    A      E                  D     A     E
He was a husband who drove, time, home, time, car, hope
      D            A     E       D           A     E 
Core, cores a day, pour coffee, core warning, last warning
      D        A           E                 D      A      
Was a husband, time, pine, scrub, scrub, bathroom, clean, 
 E                       D     A         E
Hair, bath, car, window, hope, time, gift

           D               A          E     
Don't they build buildings tall these days...
