Capo on 1st fret

D                 C
Goldenrod and the 4h stone,
    Am
the things I brought you 
       G                 D            
when I found out you had cancer of the 
       C Am G
bone.

D                        C
Your father cried on the telephone,
       Am                     G
and he drove his car into the navy yard,
        D                      C Am G
just to prove that he was sorry. 

      D                    C
In the morning, through the window 
shade,
         Am                          G
when the light pressed up against your 
shoulderblade,
        D                         C Am G
I could see what you were reading.

        D              C
All the glory that the Lord has made,
       Am                       G
and the complications you could do 
without,
        D                      C Am G
when I kissed you on the mouth.

D                    C
Tuesday night at the Bible study,
  Am                  G
we lift our hands and pray over your 
body,
    D                    C Am G
but nothing ever happens.

D             C
I remember at Michael's house,
       Am                   G
in the living room when you kissed my 
neck,
      D                          C Am G
and I almost touched your blouse.

       D              C
In the morning at the top of the stairs,
         Am                        G
when your father found out what we did 
that night,
        D                       C Am G
and you told me you were scared.

        D              C
All the glory when you ran outside,
         Am                       G
with your shirt tucked in and your shoes
untied,
         D                        C Am G
and you told me not to follow you.

D / C / Am / G / D / C / Am / G

D                   C
Sunday night when I cleaned the house,
  Am                       G
I find the card where you wrote it out,
            D                     C Am G
with the pictures of your mother.

D                   C
On the floor at the great divide,
       Am                      G
With my shirt tucked in and my shoes 
untied,
      D                      C Am G
I am crying in the bathroom.

       D                C
In the morning when you finally go,
       Am                     G
and the nurse runs in with her head hung
low,
         D                        C Am G
and the cardinal hits the window.

       D              C
In the morning in the winter shade,
       Am                     G
on the first of March on the holiday,
   D                           C Am G
I thought I saw you breathing.

        D              C
All the glory that the Lord has made,
      Am                     G
and the complications when I see His 
face,
        D                     C Am G
in the morning in the window.

        D             C
All the glory when he took our place,
      Am                         G
but he took my shoulders and he shook my
face,
       D                          
and he takes, and he takes, and he 
     C Am G
takes.
D           Am          C         G
Toodoo doo, toodoo doo, ta da da, ta da 
da da (repeated)
