Capo 3rd fret

F                        D               F                              
Do you still sing of the mountain bed we made of limbs and leaves?
                                               F           D
Do you still sigh there near the sky where the holly berry bleeds?
    Am                      F
You laughed as I covered you over with leaves
 Am                    F
Face, breast, hips and thighs
F                          F           Am       F             F
You smiled when I said the leaves were just the color of your eyes

F                        D               F                              
Rosin smells and turpentine smells from eucalyptus and pine
                                               F           D
Bitter tastes of twigs we chewed where tangled woodbines twine
    Am                      F
Trees held us in on all four sides
    Am                      F
so thick we could not see
F                          F           Am       F             F
I could not see any wrong in you, and you saw none in me

F                        D               F                              
Your arm was brown against the ground, your cheeks part of the sky
                                               F           D
Your fingers played with grassy moss, as limber you did lie
    Am                      F
Your stomach moved beneath your shirt
    Am                      F
and your knees were in the air
F                          F           Am       F             F
Your feet played games with mountain roots as you lay thinking there

F                        D               F                              
Below us the trees grew clumps of trees raised families of trees, and they
                                               F           D
As proud as we tossed their heads in the wind and flung good seeds away
    Am                      F
The sun was hot and the sun was bright
    Am                      F
down in the valley below
F                          F           Am       F             F
Where people starved and hungry for life so empty come and go

F                        D               F                              
There in the shade and hid from the sun we free'd our minds and learned
                                               F           D
Our greatest reason for being here, our bodies moved and burned
    Am                      F
There on our mountain bed of leaves
    Am                      F
we learned life's reason why
F                          F           Am       F             F
People laugh and love and dream, they fight and they hate to die

F                        D               F                              
The smell of your hair I know is still there, if most of our leaves are blown
                                               F           D
Our words still ring in the brush and the trees where singing seeds are sown
    Am                      F
Your shape and form is dim, but plain
    Am                      F
there on our mountain bed
F                          F           Am       F             F
I see my life was brightest where you laughed and laid your head

F                        D               F                              
I learned the reason why man must work and how to dream big dreams
                                               F           D
To conquer time and space and fight the rivers and the seas
    Am                      F
I stand here filled with my emptiness now
    Am                      F
and look at city and land
F                          F           Am       F             F
I know why farms and cities are built by hot warm nervous hands

F                        D               F                              
I've crossed many states just to stand here now, my face all hot with tears
                                               F           D
I've crossed city and valley, desert and stream to bring my body here
    Am                      F
My history and future blaze bright in me
    Am                      F
and all my joy and pain
F                          F           Am       F             F
Go through my head on our mountain bed where I smell your hair again

F                        D               F                              
All this day long I linger here and on in through the night
                                               F           D
My greeds, my joys, my cravings, hopes, my dreams inside me fight
    Am                      F
My loneliness healed, my emptiness filled
    Am                      F
I walk above all pain
F                          F           Am       F             F
Back to the breast of my woman and child to scatter my seeds again...
