[D]When I walk beside her
[Cadd9]I am the better man
[G]When I look to leave her
I always[D] stagger back again

[D]Once I built an Ivory tower
[Cadd9]so I could worship from above
[G]When I climb down to be set free
she took[D] me in again
[D]there's a big
A big hard sun  [Am7]
beaten on the bi[G]g people
in the big hard [D]world
[D]When she comes to greet me
[Cadd9]She is mercy at my feet
[G]When I see her pin her charm
She just[D] throws it back at me
[D]Once I dug an early grave
[Cadd9]To find a better land
[G]She just smile and laughed at me
And took[D] her bruise back again
[D]there's a big
A big hard sun  [Am7]
beaten on the bi[G]g people
in the big hard [D]world
(Repeat x2)

[D]Once I stood to lose her
[Cadd9]when I saw what I had done
[G]bound down and flew away the hours
of her g[D]arden and her sun

[D]so I tried to warn her
[Cadd9]I turned to see her weep
[G]40 days and 40 nights
and it's[D] still coming down on me
[D]there's a big
A big hard sun  [Am7]
beaten on the bi[G]g people
in the big hard [D]world
(Repeat and Fade)

This is very well done, but it is missing a verse (When I go across the river, she is comfort by my side; when I try to understand, she just opens up her hands)

sdallstar (report)

its correct when you capo 1

owen4774 (report)

there is a capo used at either the first or second fret, depending on your tuning. If you tune down a 1/2 step put capo at 2nd fret, if standard tuning, place capo at first fret. AWESOME SONG by the way!! Thanks for tabbing it out.
