This Earth  Dar Williams

CAPO: 2nd Fret
[G]In my life on [Bm]Earth
The [Em]things I have in[C]vented, have invented me[Em]
I've found my [A]industry
[G]I am not a[Bm]lone
I've [Em]fashioned friends from [C]precious scr*ps
They hold the light, they [D]bend to serve me
[Em]Joking that they [Bm]don't deserve me
[C]After days of [D]craft and care
I [C]lift a sword and [D]slice the air
[C]Such has been my [D]time upon
[G]This Earth
This [Em]Earth[C]
[G]When my wife re[Bm]turns
More [Em]beautiful than [C]when she left the night before[Em]
I show her [A]things I made
A [G]filigree of [Bm]ferns
[Em]Diamond snowflakes, [C]tears of gold
She murmurs praise, a [D]small caress
I [Em]smile to see her [Bm]happiness
[C]Silver webs with [D]sanded grain
That [C]catch and hold real [D]drops of rain
[C]Such has been my [D]toil upon
[G]This Earth
This [Em]Earth[C]
** Key Change **
When I'm feeling [F]vexed I go up[C]stairs and bury [Em]something deep
[F]Then stand back and [Am]push a button
[F]From a distance [E7]watch the earth ex[F]plode_[Am]__[Dm] [G]
This [C]Earth[Am] [F]
I love this land of [G]mortal men
They [Am]wake to know the [Em]fire again
The [F]things we make, the [G]things we feel
[F]Armour plates and [G]molten steel
[F]All of these in[G]ventions of
The [C]Earth
This [Am]Earth [F] [C]
