Cowboy Junkies Lyrics




CAPO 4


INTRO: C Am C Em F C G Am C F G C

Am               C
Hollow boned and feathered 
    Em
She fell to him
F            C          G 
Wriggling perdition she plucked from deep within
Am                        C
Feasted high on flowering branches
F                            G
The fruit of his heart he gave willingly 
        C
For her song


Am                  C
From fresh wounds were gathered
Em
Thick sheaves of love
F           C             G
He lay open palmed to her world
Am                       C
She stretched in arched abeyance,
        F               G                C
Holding thunderclap and starlight in one mind

CHORUS:

Am  Em            F      C
Saaaad to see the season go
Am                      Em
I'll miss the crackling of the air,
    F             C
The loss of all I know
Am  Em            F      Am
Saaaad to see the season go

VERSE:

Am                  C               Em
Indian corn and the bitter taste of envy in the air
F            C      G
Mired now in cyclic decay. 
Am         C
The nag of conquest
F             G                   C
Skeletal arms embrace a withering world


CHORUS:

LEAD BREAK: C Am C Em F C G Am C F G C


VERSE:
Am                C
Locked here these dreams of you,
  Em
Imperfect dormant seeds
F            C
There is a dignity 
        G
To this solitude,
  Am            C
A sparkling ambiguity
F               G            Am    F     C
Both liquid and solid at one time, time, time
