Big Man Chords

Well I bit on my lip, and I kicked at my toes
No, I don't need your lecture cause your lecture won't show
           D          A         E
That you told me so I told you so
But I would have managed, I would have been fine
I'd do it myself and I'd do it just my way,
    D             A              E
I'm a big man for thinking just so.

A                                        E
But somebody told me that your mother was born
A                                      E
Oh a wandering woman with a spirit so sworn of the riverside
A                                  B          E                     A
And it never surprised me but it meant that my love was immobilized
         B               E             A
Well, it meant that my love was immobilized 
           D                A                     E
Cause when it comes, it comes when it does.

But you came in the middle and you fell in my hands
Oh a, wonderful woman and an average man.
       D              A             E
See that makes me the lucky man
I won't be deserving, but I won't be denied
See, I fell in this position, I will still teach my kids pride
       D            A          E
Because failure's a part of it all
         D                       A                    E 
And if failure don't hurt then failure don't work at all
[ Tab from: ]
A                                               E
But somebody told me, our nephew was born
A                                     E
Oh, a beautiful baby, so smart and so sure of his little self
A                              B            E         A                              
And in a wonderful way he was making me feel so small
    B       E          A                   
Was making me feel so small,
    B        E            A
Was making me feel so small.
     D               A           E
And I don't think I've felt this before.

  A                   E                   A    
In all the reasons to come, well they override my body and,
             E                        A                                 E
I point to the sun, cause where it's warm is where the wilderness grows
And it grows, and it grows 'till it all becomes nothing 
       A               E
And nothing is left as you know.

    A                                    E
(We walked it for a thousand years, with broken eyes and salted ears
     A                                           E
Complaining 'bout the weather like we ever had a choice.
          A                                    E 
Through all the noise and self abuse, you waited for your fill of truth
      A                                         E 
Oh I'm terrified I'll achieve nothing at all.)
