World falls

Indigo Girls


WORLD FALLS (Amy Ray) --------------------- [Actually in F; capo 3.] [Each chord is half a measure, except as noted in the bridge.] [Ds9(4) is Dsus9(4). I'm not sure if that's its "real" name. It's xx0030.]
D Ds9(4) D Ds9(4) D Ds9(4) C(9) C(9) [intro] D Ds9(4) D Ds9(4) D Ds9(4) C(9) C(9) [intro]
D Ds9(4) D Ds9(4) D Ds9(4) C(9) C(9) I'm coming home with a stone strapped onto my back D Ds9(4) D Ds9(4) D Ds9(4) C(9) C(9) I'm coming home with a burning hope turning all my blues to black D Ds9(4) D Ds9(4) D Ds9(4) C(9) C(9) I'm looking for a sacred hand to carve into my stone D Ds9(4) D Ds9(4) D Ds9(4) C(9) C(9) A ghost of comfort, angel's breath, to keep this life inside my chest
D D G G D D G G This world falls on me, with hopes of immortality D D G G D D G G Everywhere I turn, all this beauty just keeps shaking me D Ds9(4) D Ds9(4) D Ds9(4) C(9) C(9) [instrumental]
I woke up in the middle of a dream, scared the world was too much for me Sejarez said, "don't let go, just plant the seeds and watch them grow" I've slept in rainy canyonlands, cold drenched to my skin I always wake to find a face to calm these troubled lands
This world falls on me, with hopes of immortality Everywhere I turn, all the beauty just keeps shaking me
[For the bridge, these numbers refer to the fret position on the D and G strings, because I don't know what the chords would be called. All the chords are x0??00. (These numbers fill in the ??.) Each chord or group of chords joined by a hyphen is one measure. (See the tab at the end.]
22 - 44 - 66 77 - 66 - 44 22 - 20 22 [instrumental] 22 - 44 - 66 77 - 66 - 44 22 - 20 22 Now I'm running to the end of the earth 22 - 44 - 66 77 - 66 - 44 22 - 20 22 And I'm swimming to the edge of the sea 22 - 44 - 66 77 - 66 - 44 22 - 20 22 And I'm laughing, I'm under a starry sky, this world was E E G G Meant for me, don't bury me, carry me...

[Back to normal with the chords now.]
I wish I was a nomad, an indian, or a saint The edge of death would disappear, leave me nothing left to taint I wish I was a nomad, an indian, or a saint Give me walking shoes, feathered arms, and a key to heaven's gate
Oh, this world falls on me, dreams of immortality Everywhere I turn, all the beauty just keeps shaking me This world falls on me, with hopes of immortality (I'm runnin' to the end of the earth) Everywhere I turn, all the beauty just keeps shaking me (I'm swimmin' to the edge to the sea) This world falls on me, with hopes of immortality (And I'm laughing 'cause I'm under a starry sky) Everywhere I turn, I got hopes of immortality (This world was meant for me, I got hopes of immortality) D Ds9(4) D Ds9(4) D Ds9(4) Cmaj9(6). [instrumental]
TAB: = is a hammer-on or pull-off between two notes The 2's with asterisks in front of them are actually quick pull-offs from 3 to 2.
