PASSING AFTERNOON              IRON AND WINE

Capo 2nd Fret

G/# = 2x0003

There's a nice transition from each of the G chords, going
both into the C major (line 1) and into the G/F# (line 2)
Basically pick the Bass G note (low E string, 3rd fret)
followed by open A string, then A string 2nd fret.

 	   C                    D             G	           C
There are times that walk from you like some passing afternoon
 G                G/F#        C             D
Summer warmed the open window of her honeymoon  
    	  C              D            G                C
And she chose a yard to burn but the ground remembers her
 G	            G/F#              C             D
Wooden spoons, her children stir her Bougainvilla blooms
 	   C                  D           G                 C
There are things that drift away like our endless numbered days
 G	        G/F#                 C               D
Autumn blew the quilt right off the perfect bed she made
 	   C           D            G                C
And she's chosen to believe in the hymns her mother sings
 G	        G/F#                 C               D
Sunday pulls it's children from the piles of fallen leaves
 	   C                  D            G              C
There are sailing ships that pass all our bodies in the grass
 G	             G/F#               C               D
Springtime calls her children 'til she let's 'em go at last
  	    C             D                G                C
And she's chosen where to be though she's lost her wedding ring
 G	           G/F#              C            D
Somewhere near her misplaced jar of Bougainvilla seeds
 	  C                  D              G                  C
There are things we can't recall, blind as night that finds us all
 G	         G/F#               C            D
Winter tucks her children in, her fragile china dolls

        C              D             G              C
But my hands remember hers rolling around the shady ferns
 G	        G/F#               C               D
Naked arms are secrets still like songs I'd never learned
 	   C                D         G          C
There are names across the sea, only now I do believe
 G	            G/F#                  C                D
Sometimes with the windows closed she'll sit and think of me
 	    C                  D                   G               C
But she'll mend his tattered clothes, and they'll kiss as if they know
 G	         G/F#                C            D
A baby sleeps in all our bones, so scared to be alo-o-one

C    D    G    C
G   G/F#  C    D
C    D    G    C
G   G/F#  C    D
