Tus pies    (video)

 

    Am - F - C (2x)

 

   Am                 F             C             - Am                  F            C

1.     I'll be the earth to ground you         from the chaos all around,

Am                F                C         - F                                       C

    I'll be the home you return to,       I can be your middle ground.

Am                F                   C        - Am          F                         C

    And I will serve as a reminder,        if you jump you will not fall,

Am                      F                             C         - F                                C

    go on and spread those wings of reason,       we are water after all.

 

                  - F              C                  F                           C

And if you        call on me I'll come running like a coyote,

                     - F                 C        F                                              C

cause we're      pillars indeed, a lighthouse when you're out to sea.

    Dm                                          G

A beacon when direction's all I need,

    Em                                           F

a compass, if you know what I mean,

 Dm                                                  G        C

drunk on that nectar of all that you are to me.

 

  Am                F                       C

2.    You can trust me and my instincts,

Am                         F                  C

    ’cause they are like that of a bird,

Am       F                 C           - F                                              C

    I am loyal, I will feed you,       sing you songs you never heard.

Am                        F                         C

    Who wants to wear the hat this morning ?

Am              F                   C

    I reckon neither of us cares,

Am                          F                       C

    ’cause there is more to life than leading,

           - F                                      C

    and       I would follow you, I swear.

 

+  CHORUS             +  Am - F - C (4x)

 

   Am         F                         C    - Am             F                     C

3.     I will always share my fire,         proper way to pay respects,

Am         F                       C           - F                                     C

    lay tobacco down in gratitude,        one thing I cannot neglect.

Am                      F                              C

    And there are eyes that watch us closely,

Am                F                  C

    there's a story they will tell,

Am               F                             C       - F                                       C

    there's a war 'tween fact and fiction       we have no time to dispel.

Am          F                    C      - Am        F                    C

    So familiar, yet so foreign,        Polaroids say so much,

Am               F             - C                       F                                   C

    bring me ceremony      parallels, I'll bring Vetiver and sage brush.

 

                  - F              C                  F                           C

And if you        call on me I'll come running like a coyote,

                     - F                 C        F                                              C

cause we're      pillars indeed, a lighthouse when you're out to sea.

    Dm                                          G

A beacon when direction's all I need,

    Em                                           F

a compass, if you know what I mean,

 Dm                                                  G       C

drunk on that nectar of all that you are to me.

 

  Am                           F                         C

+      And I love your feet for how they found me,

Am                       F                          C

    and how they walked upon four winds.

Am             F                         C

    Be my deer, I'll be your meadow,

                F         G             C

    come graze upon bare skin.
