WILDERNESS - Mason Jennings

Tabbed by: rdcoons
Tuning: standard
capo 1
Intro: (strum) (strum)
[C] [Em] [ddudduddu] [C] [Em] [dduddu] [D]  

[G]get em up get em up get your shoulders up
get your backbone straight
keep an empty cup
put [Bm]your axe in the wood
get your focus fixed
keep your body in the ring
gotta take some licks
and l[C]et it all come back to you
all the memories
which she put you through
bring it [G]up to the light
put it in a frame
hang it [D]out in the open where the children play
let it [C]sting your eyes
clamp your chest
lead with love
and embrace the rest
[D]embrace the demons
with all their claws
embrace this life
with all its scars
and [G]how can I forgive of you
things you said you'd never do
[Em]words you said you'd never say
darling how'd we lose our way
in the [C]wilderness
just trying our best
to stay f[G]ree[D]
at an [G]empty space on the edge of town
you had us meet on neutral ground
your [Bm]coat was grey
your eyes were blue
my arms and hands ached for you
my [C]stolen train
my flock of birds
when your lips said those words
[G]trees went black
angels fell
[D]armies burned the carousel
[C]say you didn't mean a thing
say you're coming home again
[D]up the river of regret
say we ain't seen nothin' yet
[G]how can I forgive of you
things you said you'd never do
[Em]words you said you'd never say
darling how'd we lose our way
in the [C]wilderness
where loneliness
cuts so d[G]eep[D]
and [G]all the expectations we
put upon ourselves to be
[Em]things our parents never would
how could we have been so sure
in the [C]wilderness
just tryin' our best
to stay f[G]ree[D]
Intro: (strum)
