Intro: C G C

Verse 1:
  
    C        G   C                G              Am
The giant of Illinois died from a blister on his toe 

      C           G               Am           F
After walking all day through the first winter snow

C        G             C                 G            Am
Throwing bits of stale bread to the la - ast speckled dove

   C          G        Am           F
He never even felt his shoe full of blood

  C            G                Am             C
Delirious with pain his bedroom walls began to glow

       F                    C                  Am
And he felt himself soaring up through falling snow

        C         G       Am
And the sky was a woman's arms

    C         G       C
The sky was a woman's arms


Verse 2:

A boy with a clubfoot that sat next to him in school
Once upon a summer's day then went wandering through the woods
They spotted a sleeping swan on the banks of a muddy stream
And they stormed it with rocks till it collapsed in the reeds
They lay out on the green lawn full of chocolate and lemonade
But under the blue bowl the giant was afraid
And the sky was a woman's arms...

This is the wrong key and the chords are not accurate even within this wrong key, but it is kind of close I guess.
