Verse 1 chords:
[D6]High water carried her d[G]own stream
[D6]She watched the water's [G]living things
[D6]She thought, it's not a m[G]ound with six planks of wood
[D6]The cardinal points to hold you up
Or a mountain where a shed self could
Verse 2 chords: (repeat x2)
[D6]Feed the roots and honor the [G]tongues of the animals
[D6]Drift into the moss and [G]bloat where the peat bog pulls
Interlude: play intro tab x3 (or just play chords)
Verse 3: (use verse 1 chords)
Rolled like a felled tree with arms as useless as such
Death's panic came, a calmness stayed, you couldn't do much
Just watch the water chip away at the bank eroding
Cut and crumbling through the spate
Verse 4 chords:
[D6]It took a father, it co[G]vered his daughter
Took her [D6]down, down, [G]down
With the [D6]glass bottles, books, a tire
Collected [G]hair tufts in the w[D6]eeds
Snagged and wrapped in the peats dammed and t[G]rapped[D]
Chorus Chords: (repeat x3)
[D]You said, is this the ceremony?
I don't know, well I don't [G]mind
The way we all fall in and roll down
Pushed through the veins and trafficked [D]byes
And when your ears sit underhead is half submerged down [G]below
Pooling all accounts of peace while passed beneath the can[D]opy glow
cano[G]py glow, cano[D]py glow, can[G]opy glow
