Verse 1: (P.M. & Strums)
Am    C       F  Em   
  Time it took us
Am            C
To where the water was
   F       Em         Am
That’s what the water gave me
  C         F     Em
And time goes quicker
   Am          C
Between the two of us
 F    Em          Am
Oh, my love, don’t forsake me
  C                  Dm ////
Take what the water gave me


Chorus 1:

       Dm*       Am*
Lay me down
        C*         G*
Let the only sound
        Dm*      Am*
Be the overflow
       C*         G* 
Pockets full of stones

**Finger pick the second time around**

      Dm     Am    
Lay me down

Let the only sound
        Dm   Am   C     Em
Be the overflow

Am     C       F   Em
   And oh, poor Atlas
            Am           C
The world’s a beast of a burden
         F          Em        Am
You’ve been holding up a long time
  C        F     Em 
And all this longing
      Am         C     
And the ships are left to rust
      F          Em        Dm ////
That’s what the water gave us

So lay me down

Pockets full of stones
       
**Finger pick this time around**
      Dm      Am
Lay me down
       C        G
Let the only sound
       Dm  Am   C   Em ////
Be the overflow

Bridge:
                           Dm
‘Cause they took your loved ones
                           Am 
But returned them in exchange for you
                  F5               G5
But would you have it any other way?     ( ~Palm Mute & Power chords)
                  Dm         F5
Would you have it any other way?
               G5          Dm   //
You couldn't have it any other way

  Am           C   F    Em
‘Cause she’s a cruel mistress   ( Power Chords & Single Strum here)
      Am            C
And a bargain must be made
    F            Em       Am
But oh, my love, don’t forget me
     C              F      Em    Dm ///
When I let the water take me

Chorus:
          Dm*    Am*
So lay me down
         C*      G*
Let the only sound
        Dm*     Am*
Be the over flow
        C*       G*
Pockets full of stones
