    VERSE:

    Em                   C    

        You were a child

                       G              D

    Crawling on your knees toward him

    Em                   C      

        Making momma so proud

    G                         D       

       But your voice is too loud

    Em   C                   G           D

            We like to watch you laughing

    Em                         C     

       Picking insects off of plants

       No time to think of consequences

        G family of trees wanting to be haunted

    BREAKDOWN (one strum per chord):

    Em                   C    

        The water is warm

                     G          D

    But it's sending me shivers

    Em               C    

        G baby is born

    G                    D

       Crying out for attention

    Em               C    

        Memories fade

                            G           D

    Like looking through a fogged mirror

       Em                      C    

    Decisions to decisions are made and not bought

            G                           D

    But I thought this wouldn't hurt a lot, I guess not
