Northern Downpour

INTRO: F, Bb (Those two chords done repetitively)
F                         Bb
If all our life is but a dream
F
Fantastic posing greed

Bb
Then we should feed our jewelery to the sea
Bb           Dm             F
For diamonds do appear to be

F           Dm              Bb
Just like broken glass to me

F                            Bb
And then she said she can’t believe
F
Genius only comes along
Bb
In storms of fabled foreign tongues
Bb        Dm                  F
Tripping eyes, and flooded lungs
F          Dm                Bb
Northern downpour sends its love

Am                   C           Dm
Hey moon, please forget to fall down
Am                      F
Hey moon, don’t you go down

F                 Bb
Sugarcane in the easy mornin’
Dm        Bb
Weathervanes my one and lonely

F                              Bb
The ink is running toward the page
F
It’s chasin’ off the days

Look back at boat feet
Bb
And that winding knee
Bb              Dm                F
I missed your skin when you were east
F                 Dm                  Bb
You clicked your heels and wished for me

F                             Bb
Through playful lips made of yarn
F
That fragile Capricorn
Bb
Unraveled words like moths upon old scarves
Bb           Dm               F
I know the world’s a broken bone
F              Dm                 Bb
But melt your headaches, call it home

Am                   C            Dm
Hey moon, please forget to fall down
Am                       F
Hey moon, don’t you go down

F                 Bb
Sugarcane in the easy mornin’
Dm               Bb
Weathervanes my one and lonely
[x3]

You get it now. It just goes on and on and on. Again, ENJOY.

Sugarcane (hey moon) in
(Hey moon) the easy mornin’
Weathervanes (hey moon) my
(Hey moon) one and lonely

Sugarcane (hey moon) in (hey moon)
The easy (hey moon) mornin’
Weathervanes (hey moon) my (hey moon)
One (hey moon) and lonely

[Continues in background:]
Sugarcane (hey moon) in (hey moon)
The easy (hey moon) mornin’
Weathervanes (hey moon) my (hey moon)
One (hey moon) and lonely

Hey moon, please forget to fall down
Hey moon, don’t you go down
You are at the top of my lungs
Drawn to the ones who never yawn
[x2]
