Bright Eyes - Oh, You are the Roots That Sleep Beneath my Feet and Hold the Earth in Place
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/b/bright_eyes/oh_you_are_the_roots_that_sleep_beneath_my_feet_and_hold_the_earth_in_place_crd.html ]
D                             Bm
I met you through a common friend
           G               D
in the attic of my parent's house
         D                    Bm 
and though I didn't know it then
   G                         A 
I soon was finding out
                  Bm                       G
you are the roots that sleep beneath my feet 
       D                         A
and hold the earth in place
                   Bm 
each time a faucet opens
G
words are spoken
       D         A
the water runs away 
       G
and I hear your name
       D
no, nothing has changed 
D Bm G D
         D                     Bm
there was this book I read and loved
       G             D
the story of a ship
        D                        Bm
who sailed around the world and found
        G                  A
that nothing else exists
                  Bm
beyond his own two sails
          G
and wooden shell 
       D                 A
and what is held within
              Bm
all else is sure to pass
        G 
we clutch and grasp
       D                            A
and debate what's truly permanent
                      G
but when the wind starts to shift
           D
there's no argument

[Interlude]
   D                            Bm 
I sing and drink and sleep on floors
      G                     A
and try hard not to be annoyed
     D            Bm          G
by all these people worrying about me
                    D                                   Bm 
so when I'm suffering through some awful drive
             G             A
you occasionally cross my mind
            D                      Bm                   G
it's my hidden hope that you are still among them

well are you?

[Interlude]
                       Bm                          G
Oh, you are the roots that sleep beneath my feet 
        D                        A
and hold the earth in place
                  Bm
each time a curtain opens
G
sunlight pours in
     D          A
a lifetime melts away
         G
and we share a name
              D
on some picturesque grave
