D                                      G    
Remember when our songs were just like prayers.
     D      D              Bm            G    
Like gospel hymns that you called in the air.
D                          G    
Come down come down sweet reverence,
D       D       Bm       G    
unto my simple house and ring...and ring.

G                 D        G    
Ring like silver, ring like gold
      D        D             Bm     G    
Ring out those ghosts on the Ohio
G                     D           G    
Ring like clear day wedding bells
             D           D           Bm        G               
We’re we the belly of the beast or the sword that fell...we'll never tell.

Gbm                   G          D     G         D
Come to me clear and cold on some sea
Gbm                       G               D     A
Watch the world spinning machines

D                               G    
Now I,ve been crazy couldn't you tell
        D            D            Bm        G    
I threw stones at the stars, but the whole sky fell.
D                                           G    
Now I'm covered up in straw, belly up on the table
         D         D                Bm                  G    
Well and drank and sang, and passed in the stable.

Intro: G  D  D  G  D  D  D  G  D

D                              G    
That tall grass grows high and brown,
        D           D               Bm    G    
Well I dragged you straight in the muddy ground
D                               G    
and you sent me back to where I roam
        D           D          Bm    G        
Well I cursed and I cried, but now I I know

Interlude: D  G  D

D                      D       G    
and I ran back to that hollow again
    D        D        Bm         G    
The moon was just as sliver back then
D                            D      G    
and I ached for my hear like some tin man
        D          D             Bm          G    
When it came oh it beat and it boiled and it's ringing

Interlude: D  G  D

G                 D      G    
Ring like crazy, ring like hell
         D   D          Bm         G    
Turn me back into that wild haired gale
G                 D       G    
Ring like silver, ring like gold
              D     D           Bm  G    
Turn these diamonds straight back into coal.

  1. The second D chord in the second and fourth lines of the verses and choruses should be an A chord. So the full line would go: D A Bm G

  2. -2 is in the key of c

    • The original song is same as 0. You also will want to hammer/pull-off the E string on the second fret to emulate the song. Not sure how to do that with a C.

  3. Where’s the tabs?
