Los Campesinos
Intro: A D A D Bm D Bm A x2

Meet me at
St. Nicholas
Among the oaks
Behind the church
That sway like pig-tailed girls

As summer wind whistles
Around your bare-skin knees
And the forsythia leaves

In the shade
Lay with me
Tickled by
The feather reed

That's where the trees grow old

Under the ivy's hold
As you in my two arms
Equally safe from harm

And in a hazy day dream
Our bodies married the stream
        Bm                        A
And we grow down into pebbles and silt

The water ran from the fields
Until the oceans we filled
              D                    A
And found the sea-bed the comfiest quilt

               Em                            G
There was more life in the weeds than in the few hundred seats
             Bm                      A
In rows from transept to chancel to nave
               Em                             G
And when their anger had paused, I turned and answered their calls
               Bm                A
With your just audience, I'm the applause
   Em                 G
We take on the burden of all these sad-eyed children
     Bm                    A
With lilies bunched in our hands
    Em                  G
We fake our concern and speak softly as the surgeon
      Bm                 A
Tells wife to cancel her plans

Em                    G
Take a body to water, take a body to tundra
Bm                       A
Just take me with you as well
