From the album Wilderness




      C             G  
Your fan of golden hair 
D                    G          G/F#
oiled with rose and cinnamon
Em                     G 
As your blood bloomed poppy red 
  Am         C      G
across your velvet coat
      Am        C      G
Your deep blue velvet coat


       C               G   
Yes, there in Montana prairie grass 
      D                G   G/F#
the Sioux shot Custer down 
     Em                  G 
His red scarf tied, his black boots shined
     Am            C            G 
How beautiful he looked to the flies, 
     Am     C         G
the happy kingdom of flies


      C                 G   
Dear Custer there's a Wal-Mart now 
       D                  G     G/F#
where once the grizzlies roamed
Em                           G 
Mountains of hair spray and cowboy shirts 
      Am      C     G
and everyone has a gun
Am              C     G
Everyone still has a gun


     C                    G   
But high in the rafters above the lights, 
     D                        G    G/F#
red finches, they hide their nests
     Em                  G 
And when our cars drive out of sight 
           Am           C        G
they sing symphonies across the night
          Am         C      G
In their forest of heating pipes


     C                         G   
And out past the parking lot along the curb 
        D                 G     G/F#
in the wilds of weed and trash
        Em            G 
Great armies of the smallest ants 
       Am               C              G
fight battles for the glory of their queen
        Am    C        G
Such a tiny glorious queen


     C               G   
But even the empress of the ants 
D                      G        G/F#
for whom ten thousand fall
Em                   G 
Makes not a sound beneath the blades 
    Am        C         G
of our great empire of lawns
     Am          C          G
How quiet is the empire of lawns
