C                 Am                  Bm                  C
These tree trunks, these stream beds, leave our bellies full

Chorus 1:
           G    D          C                 G
They sing out, "I am gonna stand my ground"
    D               C             G
You rise to me will blow you down
Em         C        D            C               Am          G
I am gonna stand my ground, your eyes to me will blow you down

Verse 2: [use verse 1 chords]
Hey Henry, can you hear me? Let me see those eyes
This distance between us can seem a mountain size

Chorus 2: [use chorus 1 chords]
But boy, you are gonna stand your ground
They rise to you, you blow them down
Let me see you stand your ground, they rise to you, you blow them down

Interlude: [G - D], then

           [Am - Em - D - C], then
           [G - C - G]

Verse 3: [use verse 1 chords]
My darling, my sweetheart, I am in your sway
Two cold climbs, come springtime, so let me hear you say

My love, I am gonna stand my ground
They rise to me, you blow them down
I am gonna stand my ground, they rise me to, you blow them down
Cause I am gonna stand my ground, you rise me, and I'll blow you down

The first chorus is all wrong. It's
"I am going to stand my ground
You rise to me and I’ll blow you down"

Just like in the other chorus...

Submitted the corrections. In the mean time replace D in verse 1 with Bm and it'll sound a lot better.
