My Sister's Tiny Hands  The Handsome Family

There are some little stylistic riffs and whatnot, but I believe this is the main
chord progression.
I tried to line up the chord names with the respective syllables.
Also, the chord progressions can seem physically awkward at times, but at tempo
they sound right.
If there's anything I screwed up, let me know. Enjoy.
[C]We came in this w[Dm]orld tog[Am]ether, l[G]egs wrapped round [F]each [Em]oth[Am]er,
My [F]cheek against my sister's we were [C]born like [Bm]tang[C]led [Am]vine
[C]We lived along [Dm]the riv[Am]er wh[G]ere the black clouds nev[F]er [Em]lin[Am]ger
The [F]sunlight spread like honey through my s[C]ister's [Bm]tin[C]y [Am]hands
[C]But while picking [Dm]sour app[Am]les, [G]in the wild wavi[F]ng [Em]grass[Am]es
Sister [F]stumbled in a briar a[E]nd w[F]as [C]bitten [Bm]by [C]a [Am]snake
[A]Every [G]crea[B]ture casts [A]a shadow under the [G]sun's [E]gold[D]en [E]fingers
[Bm]But when the sun sinks past the wavi[A]ng [C]grass [G]some shadows are [Bm]dragged
Verse 2:
[C]Alone I took [Dm]to [Am]drinking [G]bottles of [F]cheap [Em]whis[Am]ky
And [F]staggering through the backwoods [E]kill[F]ing [C]snakes with a [Bm]sharp[C]ened
[C]But still I heard [Dm]her laugh[Am]ing in [G]the wild wav[F]ing [Em]gras[Am]ses
Still her [F]tiny hands went splashing at the [C]river's [Bm]spark[C]ling [Am]shore
[C]So I took my [Dm]rusty gas [Am]can and [G]an old ir[F]on [Em]shov[Am]el
I [F]set the woods to burning I choked the [C]river [Bm]up [C]with [Am]stones
