[Chorus]
               Em
As heavy as a history book can be,
           G                   C        G        Bm
I will carry it with me, oh Lord.
                   Em
And maybe when the bitterness has gone,
              G                             C      G     Bm
There'll be sweetness on our tongues once more.

[VERSE 3] Play the verse tab once.

[Chorus]
               Em
As heavy as a history book can be,
           G                   C        G        Bm
I will carry it with me, oh Lord.
                   Em
And maybe when the bitterness has gone,
              G                             C      G     Bm
There'll be sweetness on our tongues once more.

[Bridge]
     F                          C          G
We'll soon forget our parents' names,
      F                           C          G
Like dogs will drive the wolves away.
        F                         C
And weep with fingertips opposed,
            G                    F           G        F
Like a church where nobody congregates.

[OUTRO VERSE]
Am     C          G           F
   But sweetness sings in the pasture,
Am     C          G           F
   We throw ourselves on the mercy of the earth.
Am     C          G           F
   If sand and salt have the answer,
Am     C          G           F
   Then the act itself will be louder than the word.

Am           C                  G              F
            And I'll be on your side, and I'll be on your side.
Am           C                  G              F

Am           C                  G              F
            And I'll be on your side, and I'll be on your side.
Am           C                  G              F

Am C G F goes on for the rest of the song

Joe

End chords go Am C G F, sorry I got it wrong, but I don't know how to update my tab.

Great tab, I'm pretty sure the Bm in the chorus should be a D though.
