Eleanor It's Raining

Em                       Am 
Long time ago 		You left a track of flame across my floor
 Em                        Am 
Long time ago 		The form of God was knocking at our door
 Em            D Dsus D      Am            Em
And in the sky, fire 		Eleanor, it's raining now
	 Em      D Dsus D         Am
We walked a thin wire 	And Eleanor, it's raining

 
Em                        Am	
Long time ago		 We wrapped another ring around the moon
Em                         Am	
Long time ago		 We named the world and watched it break in two

 Em	            D  Dsus D	Am	                Em
And in the sky, fire 		Eleanor, it's raining now
 Em		D  Dsus D	Am                      Em
We walked a thin wire 	And Eleanor, it's raining
 
Dm		     Am
In the folds of the dress on the chair
Em	          Am
I can see your face
Dm		         Am
I am the cross and the nail you bear
F              E             F        E     Am
You are my curse and saving grace

Am  Em    Am  Em  Am Em  Am (hold 2 measures)

Em				 Am 
Long time ago 		God whispered words and names we can't recall
Em 				Am	
Long time ago 		We hid our shame outside the garden wall

 Em	            D  Dsus D	Am 
And in the sky, fire 		Eleanor, it's raining now
Em		D Dsus D	Am
We walked a thin wire 	And Eleanor, it's raining

(Much slower) 
 Em		D 		Am                      Em
And it's a cruel winter	Eleanor, it's raining now
Em	      D 			Am
On the last sinner 		Eleanor, it's raining...

Em D Am Em D Am (during lead to fade and close)
