Flowering Spade  Sean Hayes

An amazing song from one of the best folk singers of today...
Originally recorded in the key of F
Transposed below in the key of G
Alternate back and forth on the G and E note when you are strumming that opening G chord:

[G]He has a [C]flowering [Em]spade growing [C]out of his [Em]chest
full of [D]magic and healing,
[G]She is a [C]flowering [Em]spade and she [C]moves and she [Em]sways
you can [D]see that she feels it.
[C]She's [Em]off to [C]dance [Em]with the [D]goat boys,
[C]He's [Em]off to [C]sail [Em]through your [D]wide open ocean.
[C]She [Em]learned [C]to sing [Em]from a [D]siren,
[C]He [Em]learned to [C]swim [Em]from a [D]drop in the water.
[G]There are [C]words, there are [Em]signs, close your [C]eyes, there is [Em]magic
inside [D]you.
[G]Hear this [C]box in your [Em]mind, building [C]frames for to [Em]trace your
[C]She [Em]learned to [C]cook [Em]from a [D]sailor,
[C]He [Em]learned to [C]cry [Em]in an [D]elephant circus.
[C]She [Em]found a [C]reci[Em]pe for [D]flying,
And [C]he's[Em] growing [C]flo[Em]wers to [D]understand dying.
[G]Rejoice.... [C]Hmm[Em]m...[C]..[Em] [D]
