The Blessings  Dar Williams

CAPO: 2nd Fret
If you're [F]gonna get your heart broke, you better do it [C]just right[Em]
It's gotta be [Am]raining and you gotta move your [F]stuff that [G]night
And the [Am]only friend you can reach, isn't a [F]good friend at [G]all
And you [Am]know when he says, ?Now who dumped who??
That you [F]never should have made that[G] call
I had[F] blessings
There's nobody [C]there, there's nobody [G]home
Yeah, the [Am]blessings
At the [F]moment I was [G]most alone and [Am]aimless as a fulltime fool
The j[C]oke was on [G]me
I got [Am]all those birds flying [F]off of that [G]tree
That's a [F]blessing[C] [Em] [Am] [F] [G]
And the [F]blessings were like poets that we [C]never find time to [Em]know
But [Am]when time stopped, I found the place where [F]the poets[G] go
And they [Am]said, ?Here have some coffee, it's straight [F]black and very [G]old?
And they [Am]gave me sticks and rocks and stars and [F]all that I could [G]hold
I had[F] blessings
A moment of [C]peace even when the night [G]ends
Yeah, [Am]blessings
Can we [F]meet? Can we [G]meet again at the [Am]crossroads of disaster
And the [C]imperfect [G]smile
With the [Am]angel in the streetlamp that blinks [F]on as I walk [G]on a mile
Th[F]e blessings[C] [Em] [Am] [F] [G]
And the [Am]best ones were the ones I got to [F]keep as I grew [G]strong
And the [Am]days that opened up until my [F]whole life could be[G]long
It's like getting the [F]answers, when I don't [C]need them any[G]more
I'm finding the [Am]pictures, and I finally [F]know what I kept them [Em]for
I re[Am]member, I can [C]see them[G]
See them [Am]smiling, see them stuck
See them [F]try, I wish them [G]luck
An[F]d all the blessin[C]gs[Em] [Am] [F] [G]
I was[F] fast asleep at three in the morning, when I [C]got the payphone call
And she [Am]said, ?Did I wake you up?, I said, ?Hey, [F]no, not at[G] all?
And she [Am]said, ?I got this suitcase and I [F]don't know what to [G]pack?
And I [Am]said, ?You can take anything you [F]want,[G]
Just wait [F]and see, it's not a re[C]lease, it's not a re[G]ward
It's the [Am]blessings,
It's the [F]gift of what you [G]notice more,?
And I [Am]walked out and I watched her kick the [C]big pile of the [G]night
And we [Am]sat down and we waited for that [F]strange and empty [G]light
Yeah, the [F]blessings, aah, [C]aah, [Em]aah
See them [Am]smiling, see them stuck, see them [C]try, I wish them [G]luck
And [F]all the blessings[C] [Em] [Am]
