Sticks And Stones Dave Barnes
You would have [G]kept those [C]words on your [G]tongue, [C]
If you had [G]known the [C]hurt they had [G]done. [C]
While your [G]fists stay[C] by, right by your[G] side, [C]
Your words they [G]bruise me [C]deep in[G]side. [C]
I'd rather have [C]sticks and [D]stones and [G]broken [C]bones
than the [C]words you [D]say to [Em]me,
Cause I know [C]bruises [D]heal and [G]cuts will [C]seal
but your [Em]words beat the [D]life from [G]me.
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.
[D]Goodbye is the [G]best way that I [C]know,
To [D]forgive and [G]still be letting [C]go.
