One Foot Before the Other  Frank Turner

G - 320033
Cm - x35543
[F]Dm[-] -[133211] xx0231
D* - xx4232
Eb - xx5343
On the [G]very day I die
The very [Cm]last of my desires
Is that you t[G]ake my broken body
And co[Cm]mmit it to the fire
And then [G]when the fire is finished
Scrape the [Cm]ashes in a tin
Take them [G]down to Londons drinking reservo[Cm]irs
And throw them [F]in
And then s[G]pecks infinitesimal of [Cm]my mortal remains
Will slide down [G]7 million throats and into [Cm]7 million veins
And I will [G]creep through their capillaries to the [Cm]marrow of their bones
And they will [G]wake to bright new mornings and then [Cm]wordlessly theyll kn[F]ow
That I rem[G]ain[Dm]
I am rem[Cm]embered[F]
I rem[G]ain[Dm]
I am re[Cm]membered[F]
So these [G]7 million innocents
They will [Cm]have me in their blood
And when they [G]die theyll burn their bodies
Or be [Cm]buried in the mud
And I will [G]spread through streams and rivers like a v[Cm]irus through a host
From the [G]hamlets to the cities from the [Cm]rivers to the coast
And from [G]there into the channel across the [Cm]great Atlantic Ocean
And ever o[G]nwards to the new world
Through the [Cm]waters gentle motions
Until [G]parts of me are part of every [Cm]land mass every sea
In the [G]rain, up on your crops and in the [Cm]very air you b[F]reath
I re[G]main[Dm]
I am re[Cm]membered[F]
I r[G]emain[Dm]
I am re[Cm]membered[F]
I rem[G]ain
And all the things I [Dm]love will be w[Cm]ashed away in the rain[F]
I re[G]main[Dm] [Cm] [F] [G]
D* Eb
Im not convinced of the existence of these things that dont exist
Yeah by J[Eb]ewish boys with big ideas and scratches on their wrist
By a loving or a vengeful God
Or one who condescends
Wholl wash his ha[Eb]nds down in the mire among the misery of men
Or by [F]ever turning circles hanging timeless in the sky
Like a [G]dream catcher distracting from the fact youre gonna die
But I place one foot before the other
Confident because
I know that [Eb]everything we are right now is everything that was
That Watt [D]Tyler, Woody, Guthrie, Dostoevsky and Davy Jones
Are all dis[Eb]solved into the ether and have crept into my bones
And all the [F]cells in all the lines upon the backs of both my hands
Were once c[D]arved into the details of two feet upon the sand
We re[G]main[Dm]
We are re[Cm]membered[F]
We re[G]main[Dm]
We are re[Cm]membered[F]
We re[G]main
And all the things we l[Dm]ove
Will be w[Cm]ashed away in the rain[F]
We re[G]main[Dm] [Cm] [F]
