Little Perennials  Indigo Girls

[G]Back in the lo[D]ng st[C]retch of loneli[G]ness
[G]I have co[D]me to ca[C]ll a liv[G]ing,
[G]I'm getting someth[D]ing f[C]or all this lov[G]e's labor,
[G]even whe[D]n I a[C]m forget[G]ting.
[Cm]Oh we oh oh little perennials
where'd you come fr[G]om?
[G]Daughter [D]of my[C] father's second cou[G]sin,
[G]loyalt[D]ies, I got em [C]by the do[G]zen.
[G]We share a pa[D]st, [C]we share a blood rel[G]ation
[G]and that's as g[D]ood as an in[C]vitation[G].
[Cm]Oh we oh oh little perennials
where'd you come fr[G]om?
[Em]I'm in the No[D]rth Ca[C]rolina Mountains,
[Em]just to the w[D]est of wher[C]e I met my calling.
[Em]If you look s[D]outh to the f[C]oothills of these mountains rising,
[Em]that's the p[D]lace where it f[C]eels good falling.
[Em]That's the p[D]lace that I kn[C]ow.
[G]I look for [D]words to f[C]ill the empty [G]spaces,
[G]all the li[D]fe revealed in thes[C]e back stage[G]s.
[G]I reach for na[D]mes li[C]ke little puz[G]zle pieces;
[G]oh per[D]ennial, co[C]me to [G]me.
[Cm]Oh we oh oh little perennials
where'd you come fro[G]m?
