Where the Birch Trees Lean  The Handsome Family

[E] [F#m] [G#m] [F#m] [G#m] [F#m] [E]  

[E] [A] [C] [D] [E] [G] [F#] [B]  
[E]Now that there are gr[A]een sprouts p[C]ushing thr[D]ough dead l[E]eaves,
and f[A]at yellow j[E]ackets f[B]loat on the breeze,
[E]the waves kiss the sh[A]ore and the a[C]ir [D]is w[E]arm,
but b[A]irch trees are f[E]alling [A]now that you are g[E]one.
[A]Once we w[C]alked the cr[D]umbling cl[E]iffs
[A]where the b[C]irch tr[D]ees l[E]ean;
[A]Once I k[C]issed your [D]apple l[E]ips
[A]high ab[E]ove the s[B]ea.
[E] [A] [C] [D] [E] [G] [F#] [B]  
A y[E]ear ago it w[A]as when the l[C]ast cl[D]over gr[E]ew.
[A]Under creaking b[E]irch trees [B]I would wait for you.
[E]We kissed in the s[A]alt air betw[C]een the le[D]aning tr[E]ees,
[A]white slender br[E]anches b[A]ent to the s[E]ea.
[A]Once we w[C]alked the cr[D]umbling cl[E]iffs
[A]where the b[C]irch tr[D]ees l[E]ean;
now w[A]ho will k[C]iss your [D]apple l[E]ips
[A]under the s[E]alty s[B]ea
[E] [F#m] [G#m] [F#m]  
[E] [F#m] [G#m] [F#m] [G#m] [F#m] [E]
