verse
   G
I should have seen you were coming, I should have been prepared.

                   Cadd9            D
After all, getting half of what you wish for isn't so rare.

   G
But still I wasn't ready, you took my by surprise,

              Cadd9                   D              G
you brought a light to my dark like a word from the wise


chorus
Bm                C         Am                   D
Weather wears the mountains right down into the sea,

   B7                  Em         D    C
so I will stand in the rain until I am clean


   (play this on the second time through on the second chorus)

Bm               C          Am                     D
Rivers carve the country, a landscape shaped by a stream,

   B7                   Em      D           C
so I will swim in the river as long as you need.


   G
We fell in love in the summer, when the skies were clear,

     Cadd9               D                       G
but I'm still wearing my coat from winter last year

   G
I need to set my house in order, confess and cover my sins.

          Cadd9            D                      G
I need to make a home for you before inviting you in


back to chorus x2

Em                C                    D                 
 G/Gb
   Darling oh my darling you know that everything that I do

      Em                C               G
is to try and make me good enough for you

   Em             C                    D               
 G/B
Darling oh my darling you know that everywhere that I go,

          Em                 C               G
I'm just trying to find the fastest way back home.

("back home.....")

 G/Gb
Darling oh my darling you know that everywhere that I go,

          Em                 C       D          G
I'm just trying to find the fastest way back home.

The intro's a lot easier to do if you just mute the second string of the chord:
e--3--3-----------------0-----------|
b--3--3-3-3-3-3-3-3--3--3-3-3-3-3-3-|
g--0--0-2-0-2-4-2-0--0--2-0-2-4-2-0-|
d--0--0-0-0-0-0-0-0--x--x-x-x-x-x-x-|
a--x--x-x-x-x-x-x-x--3--------------|
e--3--3-3-3-3-3-3-3-----------------|

Sounds just as good too.

Amazing! I love this song from Frank! This is the most accurate one I've seen, others are not that good, but; this on is spot on!
