    [Bm]The color of the [G]sky as [A]far as [F#m]I can [G]see is coal [A]grey
[Bm]Lift my [G]head from the [A]pillow [F#m]and [G]then fall a[A]gain
(With Intro melody)
With a [D]shiver in my bones just [G]thinking about the wea[A]ther
(With Intro melody)
A [D]quiver in my lip [G]as if I might [A]cry
Well by the force of will my lungs are filled and so I breathe
Lately it seems this big bed is where I never leave
Shiver in my bones just thinking about the weather
Quiver in my voice as I cry
"What a [D5]cold and [E5]rainy [A5]day[A6].[A5]
[D5]Where on earth is [E5]the sun hid a[A5]way[A6]?"[A5]
I hear the sound of a noon bell chime, now, I'm far behind
You've put in bout half a day while here I lie
With a shiver in my bones just thinking about the weather
A quiver in my lip as if I might cry
"What a cold and rainy day.
Where on earth is the sun hid away?"
G-A (slide up) G-A
Do I need someone here to hold me
or do [G]I need someone who'll grab and pull me
G-A (slide) G-A
out of this four poster dull torpor
[G]pulling [Dsus2]downward
  For it's [D5]such a [E5]long time [G]since my better [A]days.
I [D5]say my prayers [E5]nightly [G]this will pass a[A]way
The color of the sky is grey as I can see through the blinds
Lift my head from the pillow and then fall again
With a shiver in my bones just thinking about the weather
A quiver in my lip as if I might cry
(guitar solo)
  "What a [D5]cold and [E5]rainy [A5]day[A6].[A5]
[D5]Where on earth is [E5]the sun hid a[A5]way[A6]?"[A5]
"What a [D5]cold and [E5]rainy [A5]day[A6].[A5]
I [D5]shiver, quiver, [E5]and try to w[A5]ake[A6].[A5]
  [Dsus2]      Transcribed by Phil Saunders, from the In My Tribe album.
This should be close, except for the F#m in the verse.
Perhaps this chord should be an A6 or a D or a F#m in fifth position?
I'm not sure which fits best.
Corrections welcome, as is tab for the guitar solo.
It starts in fifth position playing around with the chords.
