An amazing song from one of the best folk singers of today...
Originally recorded in the key of F
Transposed below in the key of G

Alternate back and forth on the G and E note when you are strumming that opening G chord:


G        C         Em            C          Em 
He has a flowering spade growing out of his chest
full of magic and healing,
G        C         Em            C             Em
She is a flowering spade and she moves and she sways
you can see that she feels it.

C     Em     C     Em       D
She's off to dance with the goat boys,
C    Em     C    Em           D 
He's off to sail through your wide open ocean.
C   Em      C       Em     D
She learned to sing from a siren,
C  Em         C    Em     D 
He learned to swim from a drop in the water.

G         C                Em                C              Em
There are words, there are signs, close your eyes, there is magic
inside you.
G         C           Em             C             Em         
Hear this box in your mind, building frames for to trace your 

C   Em         C    Em     D
She learned to cook from a sailor,
C  Em         C   Em    D
He learned to cry in an elephant circus.
C   Em      C   Em     D
She found a recipe for flying,
    C   Em       C  Em      D
And he's growing flowers to understand dying.

G            C  Em  C  Em  D
Rejoice....  Hmmm.....
