Am7           Am              Am7            Am
  The sun came up above the strange, white plain
Am7         Am         Am7       Am
Blood red flowers all wet with rain
And the spirit wasn't really willing anymore
But the flesh was very, very strong

Am7 Am Am7 Am

I've got very little money left
And I've got no sense
              Am                       Dm
But I'll have none of your goddamned impudence
Am                                E
   The sun came up above the new, white fields
Am7             Am        Am7 Am
Everything was new again

G                        Am
  Pure power stripped of meaning
 E                  Am7      Am
Sky burning, spring cleaning

Am7 Am Am7 Am
Am7 Am
Am7 Am Am7 Am

[Verse 2]
Am7            Am            Am7           Am
Daisies on the hillside like cancer on the skin
Am7             Am               Am7            Am
Pretty, little, yellow eyes that flutter in the wind
               C                                   E
I'd be grateful my children aren't here to see this
                                  Am7        Am
If you'd ever seen fit to give me children

Am7 Am

        F                             E
And my defenses may be working with a skeleton crew
             Am                     Dm
But I'll be skinned alive before I'll take this from you
Am                                E
   The sun came up above the ocean out west
Am7        Am           Am7     Am
  All the colors of the rainbow

         G                               Am
Stand up straight, you can see the house leaning
    E                Am7      Am
Day breaking, spring cleaning
