(A Song To Our Daughters)

Capo @ 4th fret
 Intro x2:   Am Em   Am Em   Am Em   Bb A
Riff (single notes) = C B G F#

Riff X3  F  E  A

Riff          D
That's how she flies
Riff             D                  
In bright saffron dreams
Riff             D
'Cross harlequin skies
   F    E     A
On rice paper wings

Riff          D
She lassos the moon
Riff           D
Brush, pallets and paints
Riff           D
Clutters her room with
      F E         D
God, angels, and saints

Am              D        Em
Thieves here to steal her thunder
Am           D       B7  Em
Crowding her world of wonder
Am            D       B7  Em
I fear they've got her number

Riff               D
And here's what she needs:
Riff                D
Swings, ladders, and slides
Riff       D
Doors in the trees
F    E      D
Stars in her eyes

Riff          D
A song for the queen
Riff        D
Curtsies and bows
Riff       D
Castles and kings
  F    E       D
A head in the clouds

Am              D        Em
Thieves here to steal her thunder
Am           D       B7  Em
Crowding her world of wonder
Am            D       B7  Em
I fear they've got her number
Em  Em  Em

(Repeat 1st half of 1st verse)
Riff              D
But that's how she flies
Riff             D                  
In bright saffron dreams
Riff            D
'Cross harlequin skies
    F    E     A
On rice paper wings

Outro x2 :  Am Em   Am Em   Am Em   Bb A
