[Verse 1]
    D                        G
The land's opening up like a blanket
        D                            G
And the dandelions spread themselves thickly out
 D                      A               D
Along the fields, which are, evidently, endless
           D                      G
And we are hotly in love with one another
             D                          G
We've got an unquenchable thirst in our throats
            D                         A
We are, for some reason, all the time bleeding
       D           N.C.
We are friendless
 
[Chorus 1]
D                      G
     And we love these dogs
     D                         G
That roll on the lawns here in Galesburg
D                              A                     D
     Because they seem to know something nobody else knows
      D                              G
It is written in the smiles on their faces
       D                         G
And it rings in their high young voices
       D                     A
We are burning up all of our choices up here
          G
Where the tall grass grows
           D
Up here in Galesburg
 
[Interlude]
G D G D A D
 
[Verse 2]
    D                        G
The sky's opening up like an old wound
        D                     G
And the rain on our bodies is warm tonight
        D                    A                      D
And the ground underneath us shakes in the cracking thunder
       D                        G
We can taste fresh blood in our mouths again
         D                    G
There is no chance of getting enough of it
       D                  A                     D        N.C.
And we tally up all our posessions, we're going under
 
[Chorus 2]
D                        G
     Yeah, we love these dogs
     D                        G
that loll in the rain here in Galesburg
D                      A                          D
     As the new season rocks them in its terrible arms
     D                         G
They howl as if the world were ending
          D                  G
As we are watching the sky unwinding
D                         G
Some of our promises were binding
                  A
Up here where our dreams take form
 
[Outro]
           D           G
Up here in Galesburg
           D
Up here in Galesburg
