                Motherland 
Written & Performed by Natalie Merchant
                                              
Capo 1 Em                             

                    D  Dsus2  D
Where in hell can you go
C                        G
Far from the things you know
C                         G 
Far from the sprawl of concrete
                       D Dsus2 D                     Em 
That keeps crawling its way    about a 1,000 miles a day
                    D Dsus2 D
Take one last look behind
C                          G
Commit this to memory and mind
C                                G
Don't miss this wasteland, this terrible place
          D  Dsus2 D                         Em
When you leave    keep your heart off your sleeve

Chorus:
   G           D  Dsus2 D             
Motherland  cradle me
          C
Close my eyes
               G
Lullaby me to sleep
     C
Keep me safe
            G 
Lie with me

Stay beside me
      D Dsus2 D 
Don't go
           Em
Don't you go

Em                    D   Dsus2 D
Oh, my five and dime queen
C                      G
Tell me what have you seen
     C     
The lust and the avarice
     G                           D  Dsus2 D
The bottomless, the cavernous greed
                  Em
Is that what you see?

Chorus:
   G           D  Dsus2 D             
Motherland  cradle me
          C
Close my eyes
               G
Lullaby me to sleep
     C
Keep me safe
            G 
Lie with me

Stay beside me
      D Dsus2 D 
Don't go
           Em
Don't you go

Bridge:
           C
It's your happiness
        G
I want most of all
         C           A           D  
And for that I'd do anything at all
   Dsus2   D
Oh, mercy me!
                 C
If you want the best of it
        G
Or the most of all
            C       A            D  Dsus2 D
If there's anything I can do at all
 C G C A D Dsus2 D  Em

Em                    D Dsus2 D
Now come on shot gun bride
C                        G
What makes me envy your life
C
Faceless, nameless
G
Innocent, blameless
     D   Dsus2 D
And free
                  Em
What's it like to be?

Chorus:
   G           D  Dsus2 D             
Motherland  cradle me
          C
Close my eyes
               G
Lullaby me to sleep
     C
Keep me safe
            G 
Lie with me

Stay beside me
      D Dsus2 D 
Don't go
      D Dsus2 D     Em
Don't go
