[Intro]
G D A D x3
G G A D

[Verse]
D                  A       G D
The old man's been stealing
D                  A               G           D
She's holding her grievance for a hundred-odd years
D            A        G D
We all keep believing
D             A             G          D
That history repeats itself year after year

[Pre-Chorus]
G     A               Bm          D
All I fear's that the future is worse
G           A            Bm            D
We have to give in to the hundred-year curse
G           A              Bm         D
Sweat in the sun like we're diggin' a grave
G             A         Bm            D
Dig deep enough and our fortune we'll save

[Chorus]
G         D          A              D
"If only, if only," the woodpecker sighs,
G                D            A           D
"The bark on the trees was as soft as the skies,"
G                D       A          D
As the wolf waits below, hungry and lonely
G              G            A         D
He cries to the mo-oo-n, "If only, if only."

[Verse]
D          A         G           D
Chasin' the skirt of a beautiful wife
D        A                G             D
You make mistakes and it's my back that breaks
D          A         G        D
And forever my past steals my life
D            A                     G                  D
To submission I'm beat but there's hope beneath these feet

[Pre-Chorus]
G           A             Bm             D
Blisters and blood and the sun makes you blind
G                A                Bm            D
You don't let it eat 'til it can't help but be kind
G                      A                  Bm           G
'Cause you know what's important with your back to the wall
G             A                     Bm                     Bm
You can break metal chains when your friends don't let you fall

[Chorus]
G         D          A              D
"If only, if only," the woodpecker sighs,
G                D            A           D
"The bark on the trees was as soft as the skies,"
G                D       A          D
As the wolf waits below, hungry and lonely
G              G            A         D
He cries to the mo-oo-n, "If only, if only."

N.C.
I'm a sword but I find myself blunt
And that is no use when I'm fighting my history, fighting my history
N.C.
I have no blade, I'm more like a feather
That is no use when I' m fighting my history, fighting my history
N.C.
I have no blade, I'm more like a feather
But I can't fly away when I'm fighting myself

[Chorus]
Bb        F        C              F
"If only, if only," the woodpecker sighs,
Bb               F           C           F
"The bark on the trees was as soft as the skies,"
Bb                F     C          F
As the wolf waits below, hungry and lonely
Bb              Bb       C         F
He cries to the mo-oo-n, "If only, if only."

[Chorus]
Bb        F        C              F
"If only, if only," the woodpecker sighs,
Bb               F           C           F
"The bark on the trees was as soft as the skies,"
Bb                F     C          F
As the wolf waits below, hungry and lonely
Bb              Bb       C         F
He cries to the mo-oo-n, "If only, if only."

[Outro]
Bb F C F x3
Bb Bb C F
