Intro: G   C G

Verse 1:
   G
If this is redemption, why do I bother at all?
        Em                  C                  G
There's nothing to mention,    and nothing has changed
C                     D                     Em
   Still I'd rather be working at something,    than praying for the rain
     C               D               G
So I wander on, till someone else is saved

Verse 2 - same chords as Verse 1 -:
I moved to the coast, under a mountain
Swam in the ocean, slept on my own
At dawn i would watch the sun, cut ribbons through the bay
I'd remember all, the things my mother wrote

Chorus:
              Em             C               G
That we don't eat until your father's at the table
             Em              C                 G
And we don't drink until the devil's turned to dust
          Em           C                 G  D    Em
And never once has any man I've met been    able to love
   C                  D               G         Gsus4 G
So if I were you, I'd   have a little trust

Verse 3:
Two thousand years, I've been in that water
Two thousand years, sunk like a stone
Desperately reaching for nets that the fishermen have thrown
Trying to find a little bit of hope

Verse 4:
Me, I was holding, all of my secrets soft and hid
Pages were folded; then there was nothing at all
So if in the future I might, need myself a savior
I'll remember what was written on that wall

Chorus:
              Em             C               G
That we don't eat until your father's at the table
             Em              C                 G
And we don't drink until the devil's turned to dust
          Em           C                 G  D    Em
And never once has any man I've met been    able to love
   C                  D               G         Gsus4 G
So if I were you, I'd   have a little trust

Bridge:
Dm                         Em
    Am I an honest man and true?
                           Dm
Have I been good to you at all?
                                 Am
Oh I'm so tired of playing these games

We'd just be running down
    G
The same old lines, the same old stories of
F
   Breathless trains and, worn down glories
Am
   Houses burning, worlds that turn
G
   On their own

Chorus:
              Em             C               G
That we don't eat until your father's at the table
             Em              C                 G
And we don't drink until the devil's turned to dust
          Em           C                 G  D    Em
And never once has any man I've met been    able to love
      C
So if I were you my friend
D                                      G
   Learn to have just a little bit of trust.
