remember keys
C   Em   Am   Em

C                    Em
I am my mother's only one
It's enough

C                       Em
I wear my garment so it shows
Now you know

F               Am
Only love is all maroon
F                  Am     Am  
Gluey feathers on a flume
F                         Am     C
Sky is womb and she's the moon

Em Am Em

C                            Em        G
I am my mother on the wall, with us all
C                           Em
I move in water, shore to shore;
Nothing's more

F                   Am    C
Only love is all maroon
F                           Am   C  
Lapping lakes like leery loons
Leaving rope burns --
         Am     C
Reddish ruse

Em Am Em

F                 Am    C
Only love is all maroon
F                     Am       C  
Gluey feathers on a flume
F                          Am
Sky is womb and she's the moon

  1. For this song I love the strum pattern DUDUD, there’s probably a better one but if you were wondering.

  2. If you want to match the studio version, tune down about 1/4 step. It makes it sound perfect.

  3. honestly thank you so much for this (this is worth my first comment on this webside)

  4. Thank you for this tab, but can you give me the beat (the movement of the hand) please? Thank you!

  5. This is one of my favourite songs! Thank you so much for posting it!
