The Sorrowful Wife  Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds

I married my wife on the day of the eclipse
[Dm]Our friends awarded her courage with gifts
[Am]Now as the nights grow longer and the season shifts
[G]I look to my sorrowful wife
Who is [F]quietly [G]tending her [Am]flowers
Who is [F]quietly [G]tending her.....
(played over piano solo)
 Am - Dm - Am - Dm - F - G - Am - Dm - Am - Dm

[Am]The water is high on the beckoning river
[Dm]I made her a promise I could not deliver
[Am]And the cry of the birds sends a terrible shiver
[G]Through me and my sorrowful wife
Who is [F]shifting the [G]furniture [Am]around
Who is [F]shifting the [G]furniture around
(played over piano solo)
 Am - Dm - Am - Dm - F - G - Am - Dm - Am - Dm

[Am]Now we sit beneath the knotted Yew
[Dm]And the bluebells bob around our shoes
[Am]The task of remembering the telltale clues
[G]Goes to my lovely, my sorrowful wife
Who is [F]counting the [G]days on her [Am]fingers
Who is [F]counting the [G]days on her....[Dm].
Come on and [Am]help me babe
Come on [Dm]now
[Am]Help me babe
I was [Dm]blind
[F]The grass here grows long and high
[G]Twists right up to the sky
[Am]White clouds roll on [Dm]by
Come on now and [Am]help me babe
I was [Dm]blind
I was a [Am]fool babe
I was [Dm]blind
Come on now
A [F]loose wind last night blew down
Bl[G]ack trees bent to the ground
Their [Am]blossoms made such a [Dm]sound
That I could not hear myself think babe
Come on now
And help me babe
Help me now
I was blind
I was a fool
