Sticks And Stones

Dave Barnes

 GCGC
You would have kept those words on your tongue,    
 GCGC
If you had known the hurt they had done.      
 GCGC
While your fists stay by, right by your side,      
 GCGC
Your words they bruise me deep inside.   

Chorus:
 CDGC
I'd rather have sticks and stones and broken bones
 CDEm
than the words you say to me,
 CDGC
Cause I know bruises heal and cuts will seal
 EmDG
but your words beat the life from me.

Verse 2:
Sometimes your words are thick as lead,
You swing them strong upside my head.
But what hasn't killed has made me strong,
So i'll take my scars and move along.

*Chorus*

Bridge:
 DGC
 Goodbye is the best way that I know,
 DGC
To forgive and still be letting go.

*Chorus*
