                     by natalie merchant - album "motherland"
Chords only
Capo on first fret and then play the following chord formations:

EmEm                    Bm
Where in hell can you go 
C                            G
Far from the things that you know
C                          G                            D
Far from the sprawl of concrete that keeps crawling its way
D                   Em
About 1,000 miles a day?


Em                    Bm
Take one last look behind
C                         G
Commit this to memory and mind
C                               G                       D
Don't miss this wasteland, this terrible place when you leave
D                         Em
Keep your heart off your sleeve


      G           D
Motherland cradle me
         C                  G
Close my eyes lullaby me to sleep
         C
Keep me safe, lie with me
G                    D
Stay beside me don’t go
          Em
Don't you go


Em                   Bm
Oh, my five and dime queen, 
C                       G
  Tell me what have you seen?
     C                        G                          D
The lust and the avarice, the bottomless, the cavernous greed
                  Em
Is that what you see?

         G           D
Oh Motherland cradle me
         C                    G
Close my eyes lullaby me to sleep
        C
Keep me safe, lie with me
G                    D
Stay beside me don’t go



          C
It's your happiness
       G
I want most of all
         C           Am          D
And for that I’d do anything at all
          D
Oh mercy me!
                C
If you want the best of it
       G
Or the most of all
           C        Am           D         Em
If there's anything I can do at all

(instrumental with verse riff)

Em                    Bm
Now come on shot gun bride
C                       G
What makes me envy your life?
C                   G                       D
Faceless, nameless, innocent, blameless and free
                    Em
What's that like to be?



         G           D
Oh Motherland cradle me
         C                   G
Close my eyes lullaby me to sleep
         C
Keep me safe, lie with me
G                    D
Stay beside me don’t go
      D
Don't go



      G           D
Motherland cradle me
         C                   G
Close my eyes lullaby me to sleep
         C
Keep me safe, lie with me
G                    D
Stay beside me don’t go
      D
Don't go
