HAMMER AND A NAIL (Emily Saliers)
---------------------------------
[Actually in B; capo 4.]
[Each chord is about half a measure, except in the instrumental parts.
"Ds" is really Dsus4; "Cs9" is Csus9.]
[See the tablature at the end of the file for chord fingerings in the verse.]

[intro; see tab at bottom]
G Dsus Em7 C(9) G Dsus Em7 C(9)
Clearing webs from a hovel a blistered hand on the handle of a shovel
G Dsus Em7 Em7 Csus9 Csus9 Csus9 Csus9
I've been digging too deep, I always do
G Dsus Em7 C(9) G Dsus Em7 C(9)
I see my face on the surface; I look a lot like Narcissus
G Dsus Em7 Em7 Csus9 Csus9 Csus9 Csus9
A dark abyss of an emptiness standing on the edge of a drowning blue
Em9 Em9 C(9) C(9) Em9 Em9 C(9) C(9)/B
I look behind my ears for the green, and even my sweat smells clean

in a hand in a thoughtful pose; Gotta tend the earth if you want a rose

[instrumental, same as intro]
I had a lot of good intentions; sit around for fifty years and then
collect a pension
Started seeing the road to hell and just where it starts
But my life is more than a vision; the sweetest part is acting after
making a decision
I started seeing the whole as a sum of its parts
I look behind my ears for the green, and even my sweat smells clean
Glare off the white hurts my eyes
Gotta get out of bed, get a hammer and a nail, learn how to use my hands
Not just my head, I'll think myself into jail; now I know a refuge never grows
From a chin in a hand in a thoughtful pose
Gotta tend the earth if you want a rose
My life is part of the global life; I'd found myself becoming more immobile
When I'd think a little girl in the world can't do anything
A distant nation my community, a street person my responsibility
If I have a care in the world I have a gift to bring
I look behind my ears for the green, and even my sweat smells clean
Glare off the white hurts my eyes
Gotta get out of bed, get a hammer and a nail, learn how to use my hands
Not just my head, I'll think myself into jail; now I know a refuge never grows
From a chin in a hand in a thoughtful pose
Gotta tend the earth if you want a rose
