Intro -x8-: Gbm D A E

Verse:
Gbm          D     
You were a child
                   A                E
Crawling on your knees toward him
Gbm               D       
Making momma so proud
A                      E        Gbm   D
But your voice is too loud
                  A           E
We like to watch you laughing
Gbm                     D      
Picking insects off of plants
A                         E
No time to think of consequences

Chorus -x2-:
Gbm                D
Control yourself
                    A             E
Take only what you need from it
Gbm          D           A       E
A family of trees wanting to be haunted

Verse -same as first-:
The water is warm
But it's sending me shivers
A baby is born
Crying out for attention
Memories fade
Like looking through a fogged mirror
Decisions too
Decisions are made and not bought
But I thought this wouldn't hurt a lot
I guess not

Chorus -x2-:
Gbm                D
Control yourself
                    A             E
Take only what you need from it
Gbm          D           A       E
A family of trees wanting to be haunted

Interlude: E Gbm G Dbm A Ebm B Gb   A 

Chorus -x4-:
Gbm                D
Control yourself
                    A             E
Take only what you need from it
Gbm          D           A       E
A family of trees wanting to be haunted

  1. +3 makes it easy to play, but vocal wise, it could be challenging to some
