The Low Anthem (Live at WFUV) 

Capo III

G Gsus4 G 2x

Em  G        C
God cage the songbird
  G        Em           D
Before the feathers run brown
Em  G       C
God bar the windows
     Em            D         G
That we may though hollow be sound

         Em              C               G
And this island shall be shackled to her waters
Em          C        D
Here we vow never to change
Em           C                 G
Here we will stand at last for something
     Em   D          G
With no desire to pretend

Em          C                 G
Send up our prayers to gilded idols
           Em              C            D
With their names etched in heartwood of palm
    Em          C            G
And scatter the ashes of the contracts
      Em         D        G
Their freedom so hollow a song

Em  G        C
God cage the songbird
  G        Em           D
Before the feathers run brown
Em  G       C
God bar the windows
     Em            D         G
That we may though hollow be sound

Em G C  G Em D  Em G C  Em D G

        Em                  C               G
Now the street lamp will be tethered to her station
       Em          C               D
As the poor man is tethered to the flesh
     Em               C               G
As a wise man will be tethered to his wisdom
       Em        D               G
As the mother is tethered to her crèche

         Em          C               G
Was your hunger your awareness of salvation
        Em         C               D
As your chances go slipping to the past
        Em              C               G
Are you tortured by the changing of the seasons?
    Em            D           G
And each grain of sand in the glass

Em  G        C
God cage the songbird
  G        Em           D
Before the feathers run brown
Em  G       C
God bar the windows
     Em            D         G
That we may though hollow be sound

Em  G        C
God cage the songbird
  G        Em           D
Before the feathers run brown
Em  G       C
God bar the windows
     Em            D         G
That we may though hollow be sound
