Intro: | D | % ||: D | A :|| A7 D |
Section 1:
[D]Tell us all a story about [G]how it used to be
[D]Make it up and then write it down [A]just like histor[D]y
About Goldilocks and the three bears [A]nature in the crosshairs
And [D]how we all ascended from the [A]deep green [D]sea
When it's not too hot, not too cold, not too [G]meek, not too bold
Where it's [D]just right and you have [A]sunlight[D]
Section 2: [6/8]
Then we're [D]home [Em] [A7]
Finally [G]home[D]
Home in the [Em]land of the homeless[A7], finally [G]home
[D] Oh, [G]what are we going to do?[A]
I never did a [D]thing to you
[G]Tim[A]e peaceful [D]as a hurricane [Bm]eye
[G]Peaceful [A]as a hurrican[D]e eye
Section 1: [4/4]
A [D]history of whispers, a [G]shadow of a horse
[D]Faces painted black in [A]sorrow and re[D]morse
[D]White cloud, black crow, [A]crucifix and arrow
The [D]oldest silence speaks the loudest
[A]Under the deep green [D]sea, when [G]speech becomes a crime
[D]Silence leads the spirit over the [A]bridge of [D]time
Section 2.1:
[6/8] | D | Em |
[A7]Over the bridge of [G]time,[D] I'm walking with my [Em]family
And the [A]road begins to [G]climb
[D]And then it's, oh, Lord, [G]how we going to pray
With [A]crazy angel voices [D]all night
Until it's a new day
[E]Peaceful as a hurricane
[E]Peaceful as a hurricane
[E]Peaceful as a hurricane eye
[E]Peaceful as a hurricane
[E]Peaceful as a hurricane
[E]Peaceful as a hurricane eye
[E]Peaceful as a hurricane eye
Section 3:
[D]You want to be leader? You want to change [C]the [G]game?
Turn your back on money, walk away fr[A]om [D]fame
[D]You want to be a missionary? You got that missio[C]nary [G]zeal?
Let a stranger change your life. How's that make [A]you [D]feel?
[D]You want to be a writer, but you don't know how [C]or [G]when
Find a quiet place, use a hum[A]ble [D]pen
Section 4:
[D]You want to talk, talk, talk about it
All night [C]squawk [G]about
The ocean and the atmos[A]phere[D]
Well, I've been away for a [C]long [G]time
And it looks like a mess [A]a-[D]round here
And I'll be away for a [C]long [G]time
So here's how the [A]story [D]goes
There was an old woman who [C]lived in a [G]shoe
She was baking a cinna[A]mon [D]pie
She fell asleep in a [C]washing ma[G]chine
Woke up in a hurri[A]cane [D]eye
