Verse:
E        B         Dbm         Abm     E
Older brother, restless soul, lie down.
E         B            Dbm     Abm      E
Lie for a while with your ear against the earth.
E       B         Dbm     Abm    E
You can hear your sister sleep talking,
                    B         Dbm      Abm         E
Say ‘you’re hair is long but not long enough to reach

 E              B                 E                    B
    Home to me,    But your beard,   Someday might be.

Bridge:
                   Abm7          E             B
And she’ll wake up in a cold sweat on the floor
          Abm7             E                   B
Next to a family portrait drawn when you were four
    Abm7             E                       B               Abm7
And beside a jar of two cent coins that are no good no more
E             B
She’ll lay it aside

Interlude: - Main Riff x2 -

Verse - Main Riff -:
E       B        Dbm      Abm      E
  Older father, weary soul, you’ll drive
             B        Dbm       Abm   E
Back to the home you made on the mountainside
         B     Dbm    Abm    E
With that ugly, terrible thing
             B     Dbm
Those papers for divorce
      Abm      E
And a lonely ring,

Chorus - Chorus Riff -:
                B
  a lonely ring
                  E
Sit on your porch
                       B
And pluck your strings

Bridge - Bridge riff or chords -:
               Abm7     E             B
Oh, and you’ll find somebody you can blame
           Abm7                  E                 B
And you’ll follow the creek that runs out into the sea
Abm7            E                    B
    And you’ll find the peace of the Lord.

Interlude: - Main Riff x2 -

Verse - Main riff -:
E       B       Dbm     Abm      E
  Grandfather, weary soul, you’ll fly
       B         Dbm    Abm       E
Over your life once more before you die
           B       Dbm         Abm
 Since our grandma passed away
 E     B          Dbm      Abm      E
You’ve waited for forever and a day

Chorus - Strum -:
             B
Just to die,
                  E
And someday soon
             B
You will die

Bridge:
Abm7             E              B
It was the only woman you ever loved
         Abm7               E                    B
That got burnt by the sun too often when she was young
        Abm7                          E                 B
And the cancer spread and it ran into her body and her blood
Em7                 C                    G-------
And there’s nothing you can do about it now
