Capo 5th fret
By Gillian Welch
(Em) These twenty acres and (C) one jenny mule
(B7) From the Alabama (Em) trust.
Half of the cotton and a (C) third of the corn
(B7) Give a handful of (Em) dust.
We (C) can not have all things that (G) please us,
No (D) matter how we (Em) try.
Until (C) we've all gone to (G) Jesus,
We can (D) only wonder (Em) why. (D) (Em)
I've had a daughter, called her Annabel,
She's the apple of my eye.
Tried to give her something like I've never had,
Didn't ever want to see her cry.
Inst. Break: Em, C, G, D (x3)
When I'm dead and buried I'll take a hard life of tears,
Of every day I've ever known.
And Anna's in the churchyard, she's got no life at all,
She's only got these words on a stone.
