CAPO 2



    

There are two guitars.. one strumming chords, the other strums
then picks some notes out of the chord. The C chord has some Cadd9
flourishes... (The solo might not by in octaves but since I can't
afford all those cool effects this gets me close...)


 Em       C

are you the plane
Em   D           C

that shapes the board
Em   D/F#  G D5 C

part of    a     history
Em D           C

   smoothed and worn

Em D/F#  G  C

isn't    it strange
Em D      C

to see my life
Em  D/F G D5  C

    you must  cut me down
Em D       C

   to look inside

View Just Lyrics...

Are you the plane
That shapes the board
Part of a history
Smoothed and worn
And oh, the windy weather
Dry spells, brushfire

Isn't it strange
To see my life
You must cut me down
To look inside
And oh, the simple pleasures
This ring tells of rain
And this one summer
Good years, nightmares

How is it I remember
Knowing that I would live forever
Isn't it strange
How truth can change
And oh, the windy weather
This ring tells of rain
This one, summers
Dry spells, brushfire
