Muddy Hymnal

Iron and Wine

 CD
found your name across the chapel door      
 GC
 carved in cursive with a table fork       
 G
 muddy hymnals
 CD
and some bootmarks where you'd been                                  

 CD
 the shaking preacher told the captain's man           
 GC
 the righteous suffer in a fallen land       
 G
 and pulled the shade
 DG
to keep the crowd from peeking in                            

 CD
 we found your children by the tavern door             
 GC
 with wooden buttons and an apple core               
 G
 playing house
 CD
 and telling everyone you'd drowned                   

 CD
 the begging choir told the captain's man       
 GC
 we all assume the worst the best we can            
 G
 and for a round or two
 DG
 they'd gladly track you down                 

 CD
 we found you sleeping by your lover's stone             
 GC
 a ream of paper and a telephone        
 G
 a broken bow
 CD
 across a long lost violin               

 CD
 your lover's angel told the captain's man       
 GC
 it never ends the way we had it planned                 
 G
 and kissed her palm
 DG
 and placed it on your dreaming head
