(picking only) 

G          
Echoes down water wells 

D 
Picked up in sacred spirographs 

C                                       D  G  D/F#  Em 
Weekend and winter's unendable bendable ba-by 


D/F#  G   Em   D/F# 



        VERSE 

(strumming) 

     G 
They buried him next to his first wife 

    D 
His widow watched from under a visor 

C                                                  D  G    D/F#  Em                           
Daughter tried to keep her out of the sun that was blazing 

D/F#  G  Em  D/F# 
Oh, oh 


        Chorus 

G                 D 
Then the sun went down 
      
        C               D 
And she went to sleep 

G                   D 
She lays her burden down 

          C              D  
She don't need to sleep 

G  D  C  D  (repeat x 2) 



        VERSE 

G 
When they were done they went back home 

     D  
To a house he built with opposable thumbs 

    C                  D   G   D/F#  Em 
When they were so much younger 

D/F#  G  Em  D/F# 
Oh, oh 

G 
Five years later she died in her house 

D 
All the breath that blows all the dust around 

C               D   G   D/F#  Em 
It just keeps on sifting 

D/F#  G  Em  D/F# 
Oh, oh 


        Chorus 

G                 D 
Then the sun went down 
      
        C               D 
And she went to sleep 

G                   D 
She lays her burden down 

          C             D  
She don't need to sleep, oh no 

G  D  C  D  (repeat x 3) 



        VERSE 

(single strum) 

G  
Echoes down water wells 

D 
Picked up in sacred spirograph 

C                                       D  G 
Weekend and winter's unendable bendable ba-by
