[Intro/Outro]x2

[Verse]:

      Dm          C
I was lost in the Lakes
        G7               Fsus4
And the shapes that your body makes
          Dm                    C
That your body makes, that your body makes
          G7            Fsus4
That your body makes

[Bridge]x2

[Verse]:

        Dm                     C
And the mountains said I could find you here
     G7                         Fsus4
They whispered the snow and the leaves in my ear
  Dm                C
I traced my finger along your trails
     G7                      Fsus4
Your body was the map, I was lost in it

[Chorus]x2

F                  C       
Floating over your rocky spine
    G7                     Fsus4
The glaciers made you, and now you're mine
F                  C
Floating over your rocky spine
    G7                     Fsus4
The glaciers made you, and now you're mine

[Intro/Outro]x2

[Verse]:

      Dm                 C
I was moving across your frozen veneer
    G7               Fsus4
The sky was dark but you were clear
Dm                C
Could you feel my footsteps?
              G7                                Fsus4
And would you shatter, would you shatter, would you?


And with your soft fingers between my claws

Like purity against resolve
        Dm                          C
I could tell then and there we were formed from the clay
    G7                          Fsus4
And came from the rocks for the earth to display


     Dm            C
They told me to be careful up there
          G7                    Fsus4
Where the wind blows a venomous rage through your hair
     Dm            C
They told me to be careful up there
          G7                      Fsus4
Where the wind rages through your hair

[Intro/Outro]x2

************************************


[README]:
I won't pretend this follows the song verbatim, but it can serve as a platform 
to play around with. The intro/outro attempts to capture the flair of the banjo 
while staying true to the role of rhythm guitar. While on the topic, I'm not 
sure that the Fsus4 [113311] I have listed is correct; rather, the chord may 
actually be A#Mag7/F [132311]. 

Please comment or e-mail me if you have suggestions to improve this tab.
