D                                 A
  I meant to leave the house this morning
           D                G
  And begin making my way toward where you are
D                                 A
  I meant to leave the house this morning
            D                 G
  I made it halfway across the front yard

D                        G
  But the plum tree hung heavy in my head
D                        Bb         A
  And the plum tree hung heavy in my heart
D                        G     A
  And the plum tree hung heavy over me


So I tore off to the phone
To call you and tell you something, but I couldn't remember what
Because through the clean, clean windows
I saw the plum tree's leaves, as red as fresh blood

And the plum tree hung heavy in my head 
And the plum tree hung heavy in my heart
And the plum tree hung heavy over me
