Bright Eyes - Oh, You are the Roots That Sleep Beneath my Feet and Hold the Earth in Place

C                             Am
I met you through a common friend
           F               C
in the attic of my parent's house
         C                    Am 
and though I didn't know it then
   F                         G 
I soon was finding out
                  Am                       F
you are the roots that sleep beneath my feet 
       C                         G
and hold the earth in place
                   Am 
each time a faucet opens
F
words are spoken
       C         G
the water runs away 
       F
and I hear your name
       C
no, nothing has changed 
C Am F C
         C                     Am
there was this book I read and loved
       F             C
the story of a ship
        C                        Am
who sailed around the world and found
        F                  G
that nothing else exists
                  Am
beyond his own two sails
          F
and wooden shell 
       C                 G
and what is held within
              Am
all else is sure to pass
        F 
we clutch and grasp
       C                            G
and debate what's truly permanent
                      F
but when the wind starts to shift
           C
there's no argument

[Interlude]
   C                            Am 
I sing and drink and sleep on floors
      F                     G
and try hard not to be annoyed
     C            Am          F
by all these people worrying about me
                    C                                   Am 
so when I'm suffering through some awful drive
             F             G
you occasionally cross my mind
            C                      Am                   F
it's my hidden hope that you are still among them

well are you?

[Interlude]
                       Am                          F
Oh, you are the roots that sleep beneath my feet 
        C                        G
and hold the earth in place
                  Am
each time a curtain opens
F
sunlight pours in
     C          G
a lifetime melts away
         F
and we share a name
              C
on some picturesque grave
