How To Play

Intro:
{Am / / / Bm/A / / /}
 
Verse 1:
(fingerpicked)
           Am              Bm/A          Am
Martha she listens for the ticking of my footsteps,           
Bm/A        Am  Bm/A
     patiently
    Am              Bm/A                Am
She sifts the hairy air that's warm and woodswept,        
Bm/A         Am  Bm/A
     pleasantly
 
Bb              Ab           C       Bb  Am / / / Bm/A / / / (repeat)
She does as she pleases, she listens for me
 
Verse 2:
 
Martha she calls to me from a feather in the meadow, fly to me
You can dance and sing and walk with me,
and dreams will fade and shadows grow (??, something that
                                       rhymes with 'me')
 
Bb              Ab           F     Eb        Bb / / / Eb / Ab /
She does as she pleases, she waits there for me
Bb              Ab           C     Bb       Am / / / Bm/A / / /
She does as she pleases, her heels rise for me
 
(guitar solo over {Am / / / Bm/A / / /} repeated)
 
Verse 3:
 
My love she talks to waking windows as she murmurs to her feet,
                                                        thoughtfully
She separates in laughter to her side, caught for me
 
She does as she pleases, she waits there for me
She does as she pleases, her heels rise for me
 
Verse 4:
 
Martha she keeps her heart in a broken clock, and it's waiting
                                                        there for me
She weaves apart through a token lock, what a great thing to be free
Am
She weeps, tired and starts unspoken, but when the gate swings, 
There she'll be
There she'll be
 
(no accompaniment)
In green sun
On blue earth
Under warm running shower
