Book Faded Brown  The Band

Written by Paul Jost
Album: Jubilation
(intro)
F Dm x 4
(verse)
[F]Another autumn n[Dm]ight it's getting chilly
[F]Birds are gather[Dm]ing round getting ready
[F]The Moon and the[Dm] sun are both so heavy
[G]Barely off the ground
[Am]He's turning the wheels of his d[Bb]addy's plow
[Am]Sowing the land that's been hand[Bb]ed down
[Gm]Singing a song from a [C]book that's faded [F]brown
[F](v[Dm]erse)
[F]Mary she's on th[Dm]e step she's waiting
[F]Hair is like a l[Dm]ight from heaven
[F]The family comes[Dm] together now
[G]Believe in what they found
[Am]Grace is said at the [Bb]table round
[Am]A prayer before they [Bb]settle down
[Gm]Side by side in a [C]book that's faded [F]brown
(chorus)
[Bb]Have you [C]ever wondered [Dm]why?
[Bb]There's a[C] rainbow in th[Dm]e sky?
[Bb]It's [C]all the tears
[C]That [Dm]God has been crying
And it [G]leaves the world
And it leaves the world
With a [C]rainbow for a crown
(verse)
[F]Those that said, said [Dm]they're the outsiders
[F]Are only [Dm]easy riders on a [G]horse that's going lame
[Am]For the way of the world is [Bb]upside down
[Am]They can all hold hands [Bb]When they walk through town
[Gm]Side by side with a [C]book that's faded [F]brown
(Garth accordion bridge)
(chorus)
[Bb]Have you [C]ever wondered [Dm]why?
[Bb]There's a[C] rainbow in th[Dm]e sky?
[Bb]It's [C]all the tears
[C]That [Dm]God has been crying
And it [G]leaves the world
And it leaves the world
With a [C]rainbow for a crown
Whoa
(verse)
[F]By the way have I told[Dm] you already
[F]That his [Dm]parents were buried [G]by a tree that they loved
[Am]The way of the world is [Bb]upside down
[Am]Even the flowers stood w[Bb]ithout a sound
[Gm]Pressed together in a [C]book that's faded
[Gm]Pressed together in a [C]book that's faded
[Gm]Pressed together in a [C]book that's faded [Dm]brown
[Gm]Bound together in a bo[C]ok that's faded [F]brown
