Mockingbird

	  		(G) Well, I should be in Crystal City (C) with H.R. drinking coffee 
(G) Down at Bea's Golden Bull (D) absorbing what he offers me 
(G) Clinging fast to every (G7) word; a (C) scripture for life in a (Am)  
mortal's terms 
(G) A shoutable story (D) spoken in very soft (G) tones 
 
chorus: 
That's all  (C) right now Mama; it's just the (G) miles I swear 
(D) Please don't stop your letters and your (G) prayers 
(G7) That's all (C) right now Mama; don't you (G) cry (C) for (G) me 
I'm that (D) mockingbird who is singing in your (G) tree 
 
(G) Well, I remember the words that Toby said when we (C) visited the spot  
where they laid (G) Joel to rest 
Out in the rocks and dirt of that brown cemetery (D) 
He said (G)  I've dealt with drought since my very first (G7) breath and I'll  
be (C) damned if I'll (Am) do it in death (G) When I die I want to be (D)  
buried where the grass is (G) green 
 
repeat chorus: 
 
(G) God bless me virgin  Mary Guadeloupe (C) from your bathtub (G) shrine 
It's been so long since my last confession (D) I don't know if we've time 
(G) But maybe if I drive by each (G7) day and shout (C) five confessions as I  
(Am) pass each way 
(G) In thirty years or so maybe (D) we'll be catching (G) up 
 
That's all (C) right now Mama; it's just the (G) miles I swear 
I am (D) living off of your letters and your prayers 
(G7) Don't you (C) toss and turn while napping 
Your boys (G) out here trying to make it happen 
(D) I just get a little worried sometimes over bigger (G) things 
(G7) That's all (C) right now Mama; don't you (G)  weep (C) for (G) me 
I'm that (D) mockingbird who is singing in your (D) tree 
 
(G) Well, I should be in Crystal City (C)(?/B)(Am)(D/F#)(G)
