Observations from Vardaman, the youngest son in the Faulkner novel "As I Lay Dying"

lyrics

Capo 2
Intro Am C D

Vesre 1 Am C D Am C D Am C D Am C D
His Mo---------------ther’s a horse. And he clings-------------- to her mane.
Am C D Am C D Am C D Am C D
And they ride above us all, on the ridge line to the east.
Am C D Am C D Am C D Am C D
My mo-------------ther’s a fish. And she swims in a cold green pond.
Am C D Am C D Am C D Am C D
And she chases all the minnows in the place where she belongs.

Bridge G G G G Am C D Am C D

Verse 2
My Sis-------ter never knew, the darkness of her man.
And her ten dollar redemption has gone through daddy’s hands.
My da-----ddy never cared, for help from anyone.
Now he’s got himself a new gal, and a brand new box of songs.

Bridge
Solo

Verse 3
My bro-------ther builds, better than any man can.
And that box he made was perfect, but there’s no one there inside.
Yeah, that box he made was perfect, but there’s no one there inside.

Bridge
