O Theo  Matthew Perryman Jones

Watched this gentleman play the song to see how it was played, so all credit goes to
Chris Yokel -
C: x32010
Cadd4: x33010
Am: x02210
F: 133211 or xx3211
Hammer on / pull off the D string after the first strum when going from C to Cadd4 in
the verses
Try not to play the high E string during the chorus
---CAPO 5th fret if you feel capable of picking out (sounds better)
[C]Under the [Cadd4]silence of [C]water,
[C]Into a [Cadd4]sky full of [C]birds
[C]Out from the [Cadd4]land of our [C]fathers,
I am [Am]falling on your [F]words,
[C]Dark as the [Cadd4]night of a [C]preacher,
[C]I made a [Cadd4]bed out of [C]hay
[C]They paid me a [Cadd4]handful of [C]money,
I [Am]gave it all [F]away...
[C]All away...
And the [F]righteous raised their [Am]stones
And the [F]devil threw his [Am]arrow
That was [F]longing for a [Am]home
With [Dm]nowhere to [F]go,
[C]Oh, Theo...
[C]In the half-[Cadd4]life of the [C]city,
[C]She took off [Cadd4]all of her [C]clothes
[C]I flew from the [Cadd4]height of the [C]mountains
Into a [Am]valley of dry [F]bones
[C]All alone
Then my [F]heart was still [Am]unknown
I was [F]drunk and full of [Am]sorrows
I was [F]longing for a [Am]home
With [Dm]nowhere to [F]go,
[C]Oh, Theo...
[C]So, I set [Cadd4]fires of [C]starlight,
[C]To burn up [Cadd4]against the [C]despair
[C]I was caught in the [Cadd4]tangles of [C]midnight's
[Am]Long, unanswered [F]prayer:
[C]'Are you there?'
And the [F]light of morning [Am]grows
On a [F]field of fallen [Am]sparrows
I was [F]longing for a [Am]home
With [Dm]nowhere to [F]go,
[C]Oh, Theo...
