VERSE 1:
A           E
Why do you dream
    D           A
of pearly white gates
A           E
high in the air
      D         A
where no bird flies
A        E
no tree grows
   D        A
beyond the sky
F#m   E   A
Our blue sky.

VERSE 2:
A           E
Why do you dream
      D         A
that worms and dogs
A           E
hills and clouds
     D       A
are not like you?
A       E
Burning light
      D     A
that never dies,
F#m  E             A
Our blue spinning sky.

CHORUS:
D
Why do you leave
   A
a trail of death
E
air turns brown
A
trees fall down
D
burn green fields
     A
and drive on by
F#m   E   A
Our blue sky

INTERLUDE:
  A   E   D  A         E     D  A       E   D  A   F#m        E        A

VERSE 3:
A               E
Could you love god
       D           A
if he didn't love you
A           E
more than rivers
  D        A
snakes or wind
A                 E
could you share heaven
       D            A
with black buzzing flies
F#m   E            A
Our blue spinning sky

VERSE 4:
A               E
What if this dream
      D         A
you dream with pigs
A               E
you dream with dirt
     D       A
and this is home
A         E
is it so wrong
    D           A
to love this light
F#m  E    A
our blue sky

INTERLUDE:
D A E A D A F#m E A

CHORUS:
D
Why do you leave
   A
a trail of death
E
air turns brown
A
trees fall down
D
burn green fields
     A
and drive on by
F#m   E   A
Our blue sky
