Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Muddy Hymnal  Iron and Wine

f[C]ound your name across the chapel door     [D]
[G]carved in cursive with a table fork      [C]
[G]muddy hymnals
and some bootmarks [C]where you'd been                                 [D]

[C]the shaking preacher told the captain's man          [D]
[G]the righteous suffer in a fallen land      [C]
[G]and pulled the shade
to keep the crowd from[D] peeking in                           [G]

[C]we found your children by the tavern door            [D]
[G]with wooden buttons and an apple core              [C]
[G]playing house
[C]and telling everyone you'd drowned                  [D]
[C]the begging choir told the captain's man      [D]
[G]we all assume the worst the best we can           [C]
[G]and for a round or two
[D]they'd gladly track you down                [G]
[C]we found you sleeping by your lover's stone            [D]
[G]a ream of paper and a telephone       [C]
[G]a broken bow
[C]across a long lost violin              [D]
[C]your lover's angel told the captain's man      [D]
[G]it never ends the way we had it planned                [C]
[G]and kissed her palm
[D]and placed it on your dreaming head                        [G]
