I’m not sure if this is how the Indigo Girls play it,
but it sounds fine. Each chord is one measure. Have fun!

Intro:
E Bm A E E Bm A E

Verse:
            E                   Bm
Whatever it was, it wasn’t manumission
             A                  E
To spill the blood, to pull the weed
                 E                  Bm
You can bury the past, it’s a mausoleum
                    A                       E
With the ghost of a fist, that won’t let us be

Chorus:
E                    Bm
  Can we bring it together?
                      A                       E
Can we call from the mountain, to the valley below?
E                  Bm
  Can we make it better?
                 A                         E
Do we tether the hawk, or do we tether the dove?

Verse: [same as first verse]
I kicked up the dirt, and I said to my neighbor
“We keep makin it worse, we keep gettin it wrong”
He tucked in his shirt, and stood a little bit straighter
“We need a few less words dear, we need a few more guns”
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/i/indigo_girls/tether_crd.html ]
Chorus: [same as first chorus]
But will it bring us together?
Can we call from the mountain, to the valley below?
Can we make it better?
Do we tether the hawk, or do we tether the dove?

Guitar Solo:
E Bm G E :||

Bridge:
N.C.     C#m
Enduring love
       A            E        D                 A
Why so much, and so strong beyond this short existence?
            C#m
So don’t be still
                   E
You say there’s a long line behind you
          D                A
And it’s hardly worth the mentioning
      C#m
But I will
             E
Cause we may flicker and fade
       D              A
But we never will be through with this

Verse: [same as first verse]
I see this world, battered but not broken
There’s a fallow heart, and it’s waiting on the sewing hand
You can grow what you want, one day it’s gonna rise up
So plant what you need, to make a better stand

Chorus: [same as first chorus]
And we’ll bring it together
And we’ll call from the mountain, to the valley below
And we’ll make it better
We’ll let go of the hawk, and let go of the dove

Verse: [same as first verse]
I sing to you, all you true believers
With the strength to see it, and not be still
I’m telling you now, find the hope that feeds you
Don’t let them bleed you, of your will

Outro:
E Bm A E E Bm A E
