Charlie Darwin – The Low Anthem

Charlie Darwin – The Low Anthem

C                                                           F

Set the sails I feel the winds a’stirring

Am                                                             G

Toward the bright horizon set the way

C                                                                            F

Cast your wreckless dreams upon our Mayflower

G                               F                          C

Haven from the world and her decay

C                                                                   F

And who could heed the words of Charlie Darwin

Am                                                    G

Fighting for a system built to fail

C                                                                    F

Spooning water from their broken vessels

G                           F                           C

As far as I can see there is no land

F            C              E7                Am       G

Oh my god, the water’sall around us

F            C              G   C

Oh my god, it’s all around

F C E7 Am C F G C

C                                                                  F

And who could heed the words of Charlie Darwin

Am                                                           G

The lords of war just profit from decay

C                                                                                   F

And trade their children’s promise for the jingle

G                                           F                                       C

The way we trade our hard earned time for pay

F            C             E7                             Am     G

Oh my god, the water’s cold and shapeless

F            C             G  C

Oh my god, it’s all around

F            C       E7                       Am   G

Oh my god, life is cold and formless

F           C                G    C

Oh my god, it’s all around

F C E7 Am C F G C  (G C)

Enjoy.

    I just saw The Low Anthem at the Kimmel Center and they were awesome. Their harmonies live were incredible and the musicianship was amazing.

    I’m a big fan of Low Anthem and I love seeing them live every time they come to town.

Got something to say?
