Intro: C x8

Verse 1:
     C                                 C
The farmer drove his tractor where the soil had been tilled
         Em                             Em
planting corn in rank and file from the silo to the lumber mill
    C                        C                              Em
he rode along in silence as looked out past the honeysuckle field
                      Em
watched the water turn turn the water wheel
          C                              C                            Em
started thinking about his daughter with affection her reaction of disdain
                                 Em
the day he replaced the blue hydrangea with the climbing grain
          C                             C
while her disappointed sister looked on quiet as the snow
         Em                                       Em
knowing well that those that know don't talk and those that talk don't know

Chorus 1:
        G
but she couldn't help but sing
    G
she couldn't help but sing
         Em
No, she couldn't help but sing
    Em
she couldn't help but sing
                  G
She tried but she couldn't help but sing
    G
she couldn't help but sing
    Em
No, she couldn't help but sing
    Em
she couldn't help but sing


Verse 2: (Repeat chords from Verse 1: C C Em Em)
the tortoise in the wheelchair wrapped his forehead in a bandage
with a cast they made from plaster for his phony broken leg
so he'd get pushed around the sidewalk by the zookeeper's assistant
with the hummingbird observing from behind the yellow flower
and he flapped his tiny wings they moved so fast you couldn't see them
with resentment for the tortoise which was clear by his expression
but the tortoise turned and smiled with a peacefulness which proved
that there's a movement in our stillness and however much we move

Chorus 2: (Repeat chords from Chorus 1: G G Em Em)
we're bound to stand completely still
we stand completely still
we all stand completely still
we stand completely still
Let's all stand completely still
Let's stand completely still
Let's all stand completely still
Let's stand completely still

Bridge:
G D Em Em x2

Ending: (Repeat Bridge chords until end)
G                          D
   come tortoise, standing still
                  Em        Em
   go hummingbird, my will
   come tortoise, stumbling blind
   go hummingbird, my eyes
   come tortoise, empty hand
   go hummingbird, my plan
   come tortoise, undefined
   go hummingbird, my mind
   come tortoise, letting go
   go hummingbird, I know
   come tortoise, come and die
   go hummingbird, my I
   goodbye, I, goodbye, I
   goodbye, goodbye, goodbye

(End on Em chord)

For the "thinking about his daughter" and "flapped his tiny wings" parts, it should go G to Em instead of C to Em, otherwise, great tab.
