Motherland Chords

   
Natalie Merchant – Motherland

from the album "Motherland" - 2001 

 
Fm                    Cm
Where in hell can you go
C#                         G#
far from the things that you know,
C#                         G#
far from the sprawl of concrete 
C#                       Eb
that keeps crawling its way
                         Fm
about a thousand miles a day?
                     Cm
Take one last look behind,
C#                         G#
commit this to memory and mind.
C#                   
Don’t miss this wasteland
     G#                       Eb
this terrible place, when you leave
                           Fm
keep your heart off your sleeve.
      G#       Eb              C#
Motherland cradle me, close my eyes,
               G#
lullaby me to sleep.
         C#            G#
Keep me safe, lie with me,
                     Eb
stay beside me, don’t go, 
          Fm
don’t you go.

Fm                   Cm
Oh, my five & dime queen
C#                     G#
tell me what have you seen?
C#                 
The lust and the avarice
    G#                         Eb
the bottomless, the cavernous greed
                 Fm
is that what you see?


     G#           Eb            C#
Motherland cradle me, close my eyes,
               G#
lullaby me to sleep.
         C#         G#
Keep me safe, lie with me,
                     Em
stay beside me, don’t go.
           C#
It’s your happiness,
        G#
I want most of all
        C#       Bb             Eb
and for that I’d do anything at all

Oh mercy me! 
                 C#
If you want the best of it,
         G#
or the most of all
           C#         Bb        Eb
if there’s anything I can do at all.
Fm                    Cm
Now come on shot-gun bride,
C#                       G#
what makes me envy your life
C#                   G#
Faceless, nameless, innocent
                Eb
blameless, and free,
                    Fm
what’s that like to be?

     G#           Eb           C#
Motherland cradle me, close my eyes,
                G#
lullaby me to sleep.
        C#             G#
Keep me safe, lie with me,
                     Eb
stay beside me, don’t go, 
          Fm
don’t you go. 



I hope it's right
