Hickory  Iron and Wine

[G]he kissed her once as she l[Am]eaned on the wi[C]ndowsill   [G]  [Am]   [C]
[G]she'll never love him but [Am]knows that her f[C]ather w[G]ill   [Am]   [C]
[G]her fallen fruit is all r[Am]otten in the m[C]iddle but her
[G]breast never d[Am]ries when he's h[C]ungry

G Am C x2


the money came and she died in her rocking chair
the window wide and the rain in her braided hair
a letter locked in the pattern of her knuckle
like a hymn to the house she was making

G Am C x2

[G]blind and whistling ju[Am]st around the c[C]orner and there's a
[G]wind that is w[Am]hispering [C]something
[G]strong as hell but not h[Am]ickory r[C]ooted

G Am C x2

she kissed him once cause he gave her a cigarette
and turned around but he waits like a turned down bed
and summer left like her walking with another and a
sound of a church bell ringing

G Am C x2

the money came and he died like a butterfly
a buried star and the haze of the city lights
a gun went off and her mother dropped her baby on the
blue feathered wing - we were lucky

G Am C x2

[G]blind and whistling ju[Am]st around the c[C]orner and there's a
[G]wind that is w[Am]hispering [C]something
[G]strong as hell but not h[Am]ickory r[C]ooted

G Am C x12
