The Handsome Family
[INTRO]

C

[VERSE 1]

          C         F       C
Like the moon pulls on the water 
         F               C
and the water pulls the sand 
       Dm                Am
Like starlight drifts a billion years 
     F            C
to flicker once above your head

[VERSE 2]

       C    F       C
The cicadas in the oak trees 
     F              C
are singing to the sky 
    Dm           Am
and I am calling out to you 
   F         G      C
across this silent night

[CHORUS]
 F                C
Come back to the valley, 
         Am          F
to the green willow valley 
        Fm         C
In the cool of the evening, 
     F       G        C
I'm waiting here for you

[VERSE 3]

         C        F        C
Can you feel the wings of birds 
  F                 C
whisper 'cross the sky? 
 Dm                Am
Can you hear the blades of grass 
 F              C
calling to the light?

[VERSE 4]

           C     F      C
There are rivers underground 
 F                C
rushing cold and wild 
    Dm           Am
and I am calling out to you 
   F        G      C
across the lonely night

[CHORUS]

 F                C
Come back to the valley, 
         Am          F
to the green willow valley 
        Fm         C
In the cool of the evening, 
     F       G        C
I'm waiting here for you

[INTERLUDE]

C F C F C Dm Am F G C

[BRIDGE]

       Am            Em
We'll lie under the willows 
      F              C
in a bed of fallen leaves 
Am               Em
I will bring you apples 
     F                C   G G7
and water from the stream

[VERSE 5]

C       F         C
I will pull the thorns 
F                    C
from your blistered feet 
Dm                 Am
Can't you hear me calling 
         F     G        C
in the whisper of the trees?

[CHORUS]

 F                C
Come back to the valley, 
         Am          F
to the green willow valley 
        Fm         C
In the cool of the evening, 
     F       G        C
I'm waiting here for you
        Fm         C
In the cool of the evening, 
     F       G        C
I'm waiting here for you
