Blood – Middle-East (CAPO ON 4TH FRET)

Intro: (Main Riff x2)

Verse 1:
C        G/C       Am         Em     C
Older brother, restless soul, lie down.
C         G/C          Am     Em      C
Lie for a while with your ear against the earth.
C       G/C       Am     Em    C
You can hear your sister sleep talking,
                    G/C       Am      Em         C
Say ‘you’re hair is long but not long enough to reach


 C              G                 C                    G
    Home to me,    But your beard,   Someday might be.

                   Em7          Cadd9         G
And she’ll wake up in a cold sweat on the floor
          Em7             Cadd9               G
Next to a family portrait drawn when you were four
    Em7             Cadd9                   G               Em7
And beside a jar of two cent coins that are no good no more
Cadd9         G
She’ll lay it aside

(Main Riff x2)

Verse 2:
C       G/C      Am      Em      C
  Older father, weary soul, you’ll drive
             G/C      Am       Em   C
Back to the home you made on the mountainside
         G/C   Am    Em    C
With that ugly, terrible thing
             G/C   Am
Those papers for divorce
      Em      C
And a lonely ring,

Chorus 2:
  A lonely ring
Sit on your porch
And pluck your strings

Bridge 2:
               Em7     Cadd9         G
Oh, and you’ll find somebody you can blame
           Em7                  Cadd9             G
And you’ll follow the creek that runs out into the sea
Em7            Cadd9                G
    And you’ll find the peace of the Lord.

(Main Riff x2)

Verse 3: (Main riff)
C       G/C     Am     Em      C
  Grandfather, weary soul, you’ll fly
       G/C       Am    Em       C
Over your life once more before you die
           G/C     Am         Em
 Since our grandma passed away
 C     G/C        Am      Em      C
You’ve waited for forever and a day

Chorus 3: (Strum)
Just to die,
And someday soon
You will die

Bridge3: (Strum bass note then rest of chord)
Em7             Cadd9          G
It was the only woman you ever loved
         Em7               Cadd9                G
That got burnt by the sun too often when she was young
        Em7                          Cadd9             G
And the cancer spread and it ran into her body and her blood
Em7                 Cadd9                G-------
And there’s nothing you can do about it now
