HAMMER AND A NAIL (Emily Saliers)
---------------------------------
[Actually in B; capo 4.]
[Each chord is about half a measure, except in the instrumental parts.
 "Ds" is really Dsus4; "Cs9" is Csus9.]
[See the tablature at the end of the file for chord fingerings in the verse.]

G  Ds Em7|Em7  C(9) G|G  Ds Cs9|Cs9   | G  Ds Em7|Em7  C(9) G|G  Ds Cs9|Cs9  |
[intro; see tab at bottom]

G          Dsus        Em7   C(9)   G            Dsus        Em7         C(9)
  Clearing webs from a hovel         a blistered hand on the handle of a shovel
G           Dsus        Em7     Em7    Csus9  Csus9  Csus9  Csus9
  I've been digging too deep, I always do
G          Dsus        Em7     C(9)   G         Dsus       Em7   C(9)
  I see my face on the surface;        I look a lot like Narcissus
G          Dsus      Em7       Em7             Csus9     Csus9     Csus9  Csus9
  A dark abyss of an emptiness standing on the edge of a drowning blue

Em9        Em9      C(9)          C(9)  Em9    Em9     C(9)    C(9)/B
  I look behind my ears for the green,     and even my sweat smells clean

in a hand in a thoughtful pose; Gotta tend the earth if you want a rose

G  Ds Em7|Em7  C(9) G|G  Ds Cs9|Cs9  |
[instrumental, same as intro]

I had a lot of good intentions; sit around for fifty years and then 
   collect a pension
Started seeing the road to hell and just where it starts
But my life is more than a vision; the sweetest part is acting after 
   making a decision
I started seeing the whole as a sum of its parts

I look behind my ears for the green, and even my sweat smells clean
Glare off the white hurts my eyes
Gotta get out of bed, get a hammer and a nail, learn how to use my hands
Not just my head, I'll think myself into jail; now I know a refuge never grows
Gotta tend the earth if you want a rose

My life is part of the global life; I'd found myself becoming more immobile
When I'd think a little girl in the world can't do anything
A distant nation my community, a street person my responsibility
If I have a care in the world I have a gift to bring

I look behind my ears for the green, and even my sweat smells clean
Glare off the white hurts my eyes
Gotta get out of bed, get a hammer and a nail, learn how to use my hands
Not just my head, I'll think myself into jail; now I know a refuge never grows
Gotta tend the earth if you want a rose
