Green Grass  Tom Waits

[Cm]   [Cm]                                  


Lay your head where my heart u[Fm]sed to be

[G]Hold the earth above [Cm]me
[Ab]Lay down in the green grass
[G]Remember when you [Cm]loved me
Come closer d[Fm]on't be shy
[G]Stand beneath a rainy [Cm]sky
[Ab]The moon is over the rise
[G]Think of me as a [Cm]train goes by
Clear the thi[Fm]stles and brambles
[G]Whistle 'Didn't H[Cm]e Ramble'
[Ab]Now there's a bubble of me
[G]And it's floati[Cm]ng in thee
Middle Section:

[Fm]Stand in the [Bb]shade of me
[Eb]Things are now made of me
[Ab]The weather vane will say...
[G]It smells like rain today

God took the stars and he [Fm]tossed 'em

[G]Can't tell the birds from the [Cm]blossoms
[Ab]You'll never be free of me
[G]He'll make a [Cm]tree from me
Don't say good [Fm]bye to me
[G]Describe the [Cm]sky to me
[Ab]And if the sky falls, [G]mark my words
[Cm]We'll catch mocking birds
Interlude (With Whistling):
[G]     [Cm]                                

Last Verse:

Lay your head where my[Fm] heart used to be
[G]Hold the earth a[Cm]bove me
[Ab]Lay down in the green grass
[G]Remember when you [Cm]loved me    [Cm]
