THE GIRL WITH THE WEIGHT OF THE WORLD IN HER HANDS (Emily Saliers)
------------------------------------------------------------------
[Key of A, but actually in B, so capo up 2 frets.]


A   A6   A   A6     A   A6   A    A+
[intro]

A          A6               A     A6
She won't recover from her losses
            A          A6            A               A+
She's not chosen this path, but she watches who it crosses
       D(9)        D(9)/C#      Bm7         E7      
Maybe move to the right, maybe move to the left
           Asus2       Asus2/G#             D/F#            D/F#
So we can all see her pain she wears like a banner on her chest
        D(9)         D(9)/C#    Bm7            E7      
And we all say it's sad, and we think it's a shame
           Asus2            As2/G#        D/F#    D/F#
And she's called to our attention, but we do not call her name
    E               Esus        E              A     A6     A     A6
The girl with the weight of the world in her hands

'Cause we're busy with our happiness, and busy with our plans
I wonder if alone she wants it taken from her hands
But if things didn't keep getting harder
She might miss her sacred chance to go a consecrated martyr
    E               Esus        E              A(9)  A(9)
The girl with the weight of the world in her hands

  D             D/C#       Bm7            E7 
I wonder which saint that lives inside a bead
       A             A/G#             D(9)/F#        D(9)/F#
Will grant her consolation when she counts upon her need
   D             D/C#              Bm7      E7
It makes us all angry, though we feign to care
      A               A/G#               D(9)/F#         D(9)/F#
But who will be the scale to weigh the cross she has to bear?
    E               Esus        E              A     A6     A     A6
The girl with the weight of the world in her hands

"Is the glass half full or empty?" I ask her as I fill it
She says "it doesn't really matter, pretty soon you're bound to spill it"
With the half-logic language of the sermon she delivers
And the way she smiles so knowingly at me gives me the shivers
    E               Esus        E              A(9)  A(9)
The girl with the weight of the world in her hands

I wonder which saint that lives inside a bead
Will grant her consolation when she counts upon her need
It makes us all angry, though we feign to care
But who will be the scale to weigh the cross she has to bear?
    E               Esus        E              A   A6   A   A6   A+   A(9)
The girl with the weight of the world in her hands
