Intro, play twice: C  Am7add6  Am7  Am7add4

C
  Lying in the hot sun today
Am7add6           Am7      Am7add4
  Watching the clouds run away
C
  Thought a little while about you
Am7add6             Am7    
  The sky was a petrifying blue
                    C
And, well, the geese flew past
       Em
For no reason at all
F(b5)/C  F/C  F(b5)/C  F/C
                         I let the sky fall

               C           G
  This is an empty country, I am the king
                  C                        Am7add6   Am7  Am7add4
  And I should not be allowed to touch anything

C   Am7add6           Am7      Am7add4 - play twice

C
  I picked myself up off the ground
            Am7add6                 Am7      Am7add4
  Shook the grass from my hair and I walked around
C                           
  Felt the warm sun in my eye
Am7add6            Am7
  Strangers were passing by
               C           Em
  I shinnied up the black walnut tree
            F
  Let the hard blue sky fall right through me
               C                    G
  And I saw the sad young cardinals, trying to sing
                  C                      Am7add6   Am7  Am7add4
  And I should not be allowed to touch anything

C  Am7add6   Am7  Am7add4 - play three times
C  Em  F(b5)/C  F/C  F(b5)/C  F/C  F(b5)/C  F/C
       F(b5)/C  F/C  F(b5)/C  F/C  F(b5)/C  F/C
C  Am7add6   Am7  Am7add4
