Leaving Home

Tabbed by Elliot Kendall (elliotkendall at gmail dot com)

The intro melody starts something like this - I'll fill in the rest later. There's some strumming, too. It's all variations on C.

C
We gathered up our worldly goods
Bb
Stole off in the dark as quickly as we could
F
You were quieting the baby down
C
When we came to the dock on the outskirts of town
A
And looking back we saw China
F
Shrinking to the size of a coin
                C          G
And then we saw water everywhere

C
When we climbed on board
     Bb
They tied our things together with electrical cord
F
And then we set sail
      C
As we held on tight to the cold iron rail
      A
And I apologize but I don't know what I love more
F
You next to me there or the receding shore
C
We stood there in the cold
Bb
And the baby was six months old
F
We were passing him back and forth
C
When a cold familiar wind came down from the north
A
And looking back we saw China
F
Shrinking to the size of a coin
                C     G
And then we saw water everywhere
