Indigo Girls


JONAS & EZEKIAL (Amy Ray) ------------------------- [Actually in D; capo 2.] [Each chord is one measure.]
[I saw Indigo Girls do this on Austin City Limits, and they played the verse chords as Am and C. The _Rites_of_Passage_ songbook also shows them as Am and C. But it _sounds_ like it's mostly Am; that's because the _bass_ plays A most of the time, even under the C measures. On "ACL," the chords were strummed so that the fourth and fifth notes of the Am and C measures were hammer-ons from 0 to 2 on the D string.]
[In other words: the verse is Am Am Am Am(4)>Am Am Am Am C C C C(9)>C C C C.]
Am C I left my anger in a river running Highway 5 Am C New Hampshire, Vermont, border by Am C College farms, hubcaps, and falling rocks Am C Voices in the woods and the mountaintops
I used to search for reservations and native lands Before I realized everywhere I stand There have been tribal feet running wild as fire Some past life sister of are my desire
F G Jonas and Ezekial, hear me now C F Steady now, and don't come out F G I'm not ready for the dead to show it's face C F E7 E7 Am Am Am Am Whose angel are you anyway, anyway?
Now when I was young, my people taught me well Give back what you take, or you'll go to hell It's not the devil's land, you know it's not that kind Every devil I meet becomes a friend of mine Every devil I meet is an angel in disguise
Jonas and Ezekial, hear me now Steady now, and don't come out I'm not ready for the dead to show its face Whose angel are you anyway?
Am C Am C Hey hey hey hey, Hey hey hey hey... E7 E7 Am C E7 E7 [guitar solo] Am C G E7 E7 White - Chain - Rope - Fear - Be still my dear
A bullet in the head, now he's dead A friend of a friend, someone said He was an activist with a very short life I think there's a lesson here, he died without a fight
In the war over land where the world began Prophecy says it's where the world will end
But there's a tremor growing in our own backyard Am C Am Fear in our heads, fear in our hearts, prophets in the graveyards
Jonas and Ezekial, hear me now Steady now, and don't come out I'm not ready for the dead to show its face Whose turn is it anyway?
Jonas and Ezekial, hear me now Steady now, I feel your ghost about I'm not ready for the dead to show its face Whose angel are you anyway?
Am C I said there's prophets in the graveyard (Here I walk in beauty) Am C Prophets in the graveyard (Beauty is be - fore me) Am C Am C Am. Prophets in the graveyard (Beauty is be - hind me, above and below me)
