[Tab Guru]
T|  Capo 3rd Fret 
B|  C               Em                    D   Am 
N|  The meadowlark and the chim-choo-ree and the sparrow 
A|  Set to the sky in a flying spree, for the sport over the pharaoh 
B|  Little while later the Pharisees dragged comb through the meadow 
B|  Do you remember what they called up to you and me, in our window? 
R|      C               Em                    D   Am 
.|  there is a rusty light on the pines tonight sun pouring wine, lord, or marrow 
C|  down into the bones of the birches and the spires of the churches jutting 
O|  out from the shadows 
M|  the oak, and the axe, and the old smokestacks and the bale and the barrow 
-|  and everything sloped like it was dragged from a rope in the mouth of the south below 
A|  F                A              E          F#m 
B|  we've seen those mountains kneeling, felten and grey 
N|  we thought our very hearts would up and melt away 
A|           D            A         E   F#m 
B|  from that snow in the nighttime just going and going 
B|  and the stirring of wind chimes in the morning in the morning 
E|  Bm    E7     Bm    E7 
R|  helps me find my way back in 
.|  from the place where I have been 
O|  D 
-|       C#m                     F#        
T|  and, Emily - I saw you last night by the river 
A|  I dreamed you were skipping little stones across the surface of the water 
B|  G#m               B          A               C#m 
N|  frowning at the angle where they were lost, and slipped under forever, 
A|  in a mud-cloud, mica-spangled, like the sky'd been breathing on a mirror 
B|  C#m                     F# 
E|  anyhow - I sat by your side, by the water 
R|  you taught me the names of the stars overhead that I wrote down in my ledger 
.|  G#m               B          A               C#m 
C|  tho all I knew of the rote universe were those pleiades loosed in december 
O|  I promised you I‘d set them to verse so I'd always remember 
-|  C#m                     F# 
T|  that the meteorite is a source of the light and the meteor's just what we see 
A|  G#m               B          A               C#m 
N|  and the meteoroid is a stone that's devoid of the fire that propelled it to thee  
A|  C#m                     F# 
B|  and the meteorite's just what causes the light and the meteor's how it's perceived 
B|  G#m               B          A               C#m 
E|  and the meteoroid's a bone thrown from the void that lies quiet in offering to thee 
.|  C               Em                    D   Am 
C|    you came and lay a cold compress upon the mess I'm in 
O|  threw the window wide and cried; Amen! Amen! Amen! 
M|  the whole world - stopped - to hear you hollering 
-|  you looked down and saw now what was happening 
A|  C               Em                    D   Am 
B|  the lines are fadin' in my kingdom 
N|  though I have never known the way to border them in 
A|  so the muddy mouths of baboons and sows and the grouse and the horse and the hen 
B|  grope at the gate of the looming lake that was once a tidy pen 
B|  and the mail is late and the great estates are not lit from within 
E|  the talk in town's becoming downright sickening 
.|  F                A              E          F#m 
C|  in due time we will see the far butte lit by a flare 
O|  I've seen your bravery, and I will follow you there 
M|           D            A         E   F#m 
-|  and row through the nighttime gone healthy gone healthy all of a sudden in  
T|  search of the midwife who could help me who could help me 
A|  Bm    E7     Bm    E7 
B|  help me find my way back in 
N|  there are worries where I've been 
B|  D 
E|  C#m                     F#     
R|  say, say, say in the lee of the bay; don't be bothered 
.|  leave your troubles here where the tugboats shear the water from the water 
C|  G#m               B          A               C#m 
O|  flanked by furrows, curling back, like a match held up to a newspaper 
-|  C#m                     F#  
T|  Emily, they'll follow your lead by the letter 
A|  and I make this claim, and I'm not ashamed to say I know you better 
B|  G#m               B          A               C#m 
N|  what they've seen is just a beam of your sun that banishes winter 
B|  C#m                     F#     
B|  let us go! though we know it's a hopeless endeavor 
E|  the ties that bind, they are barbed and spined and hold us close forever 
R|  G#m               B          A               C#m 
.|  though there is nothing would help me come to grips with a sky that is gaping and yawning 
C|  there is a song I woke with on my lips as you sailed your great ship towards the morning 
M|  C               Em                    D   Am 
-|  come on home, the poppies are all grown knee-deep by now 
T|  blossoms all have fallen, and the pollen ruins the plow 
A|  peonies nod in the breeze and while they wetly bow, with 
B|  hydrocephalitic listlessness ants mop up-a their brow 
A|  C               Em                    D   Am 
B|  and everything with wings is restless, aimless, drunk and dour 
B|  the butterflies and birds collide at hot, ungodly hours 
E|  and my clay-colored motherlessness rangily reclines 
R|  - come on home, now! all my bones are dolorous with vines 
C|  F                A              E          F#m 
O|  Pa pointed out to me, for the hundredth time tonight 
M|  the way the ladle leads to a dirt-red bullet of light 
-|           D            A         E   F#m 
T|  squint skyward and listen - loving him, we move within  
A|  his borders: just asterisms in the stars' set order 
B|  we could stand for a century, starin', with our heads cocked 
N|  in the broad daylight at this thing. Joy, landlocked 
A|  in bodies that don't keep, dumbstruck with the sweetness of be- 
B|  ing till we don't be told; take this and eat this 
E|  C               Em                    D   Am 
R|  told; the meteorite is the source of the light and the meteor's just what we see 
.|  and the meteoroid is a stone that's devoid of the fire that propelled it to thee 
C|  and the meteorite's just what causes the light and the meteor's how it's perceived 
O|  and the meteoroid's a bone thrown from the void that lies quiet in offering to thee 
-|  C               Em                    D   Am to end.
