Glow Worm  The Handsome Family

Up the snowy spires, where the [A]air is thin as glass
Once a [E]year the cold mists clear and you can [G]see inside the [F#]earth
[Bm]High in that crystal palace I [A]built a sailing ship
Mast and [E]wheel of polished brass, [G]sails of golden [F#]silk
I [Bm]piped the engine steam, I [A]set velocitations
I consul[E]ted dusty maps, set [G]careful [F#]calibrations
[D]Ever inward ever in, [A]peering through my scope
I [C]sailed deep into the hollows, [B]deep inside the earth
I traveled a boiling river [A]through streams of mercury
Un[E]derneath volcanoes and the [G]roots of ancient [F#]trees
[Bm]Underneath stalactites I lit [A]phosphorus lamps
Sparks [E]snapped into the air and [G]coiled up the [F#]mast
[A] [E] [G] [D] [A] [E] [G] [D] [Bm]  
I watched enormous birds [A]diving through the slate
As I [E]stood upon the prow in my [G]oilskin cap and [F#]cape
At [Bm]last my anchor caught and [A]echoed through the stone
As I [E]climbed an old rope ladder [G]miles through the [F#]gloam
[Bm]Then up above I saw it, [A]a glowworm?s little light
And [E]I reached out and caught it in the [G]center of the [F#]night
[D]Tightly in my fist I [A]held that glowing worm
[C]Deep down in the hollows I held the [B]center of the world
