Mark Olson and Gary Louris - Bloody Hands

Capo II

Em
Was a girl

G
such a pretty girl

Em.....................G
hunched over an old man

Em
she wore a smile

C
such a crooked smile

F................................G
she had blood stains on her hands

C.................................G
she had blood stains on her hands

not so long
not so far away
a woman and her man
took a walk
just a sunday walk
on the outskirts of town
and he knocked that woman down


...........Bb.......F.........Em.......A
what the mind forgets the soul reclaims

C..................G
all my love's in vain

was a man
such a twisted man
he had something on his mind
for a child
and unwanted child
so he swung her round and round
and the river took her down

what the mind forgets the soul reclaims
all my love's in vain

golden curls
like her mothers own
the spirit of a man
all the while
she grew up single mind
to avenge her mother's soul
to avenge her mother's soul

what the mind forgets the soul reclaims
all my love's in vain

what the mind forgets the soul reclaims
all my love's in
all my love's in vain

Wow, thank you so much for doing this, it sounds great!

Don't suppose you take requests, do you?

I've been struggling with Louris's "We'll Get By but we don't know how."

Ain't Ready For the Flood amazing?!

Thanks again, great stuff here!
