Verse:
Eb	
When I walk beside her 
Db
I am the better man
Ab
When I look to leave her 
	Eb
I always stagger back again

Eb
Once I built an Ivory tower 
Db
so I could worship from above
Ab
When I climb down to be set free 
	Eb
she took me in again

Chorus:
Eb	
there's a big
		Bbm
a big hard sun
		Ab
beaten on the big people
		Eb
in the big hard world

Verse:
Eb
When she comes to greet me
Db
She is mercy at my feet
Ab
When I see her pin her charm
	Eb
She just throws it back at me


Eb
Once I dug an early grave 
Db
To find a better land
Ab
She just smile and laughed at me 
	Eb
And took her bruise back again

Chorus:
Eb	
there's a big
		Bbm
a big hard sun
		Ab
beaten on the big people
		Eb
in the big hard world

Verse:
Eb
Once I stood to lose her
Db
when I saw what I had done
Ab
bound down and flew away the hours
	Eb
of her garden and her sun

Eb
so I tried to warn her
Db
I turned to see her weep
Ab
40 days and 40 nights
	Eb
and it's still coming down on me

Chorus:
Eb	
there's a big
		Bbm
a big hard sun
		Ab
beaten on the big people
		Eb
in the big hard world
