Capo 1st fret
Intro: D

D                          Cadd9
 When I walk beside her, I am the better man
G                                 D
 When I look to leave her I always stagger back again
D                                      Cadd9
 Once I built an ivory tower so I could worship from above
      G                            D
When I climbed down to be set free, she took me in again

           D          Am                             G                 D
There's a big, a big hard sun beating on the big people in the big hard world

D                                 Cadd9
 When she comes to greet me she is mercy at my feet
G                                      D
 When I see her pin her charm, she just throws it back at me
D                              Cadd9
 Once I dug an early grave to find a better land
G                                               D
 She just smiled and laughed at me and took her rules back again

           D          Am                             G                 D
There's a big, a big hard sun beating on the big people in the big hard world
           D          Am                             G                 D
There's a big, a big hard sun beating on the big people in the big hard world

D                                    Cadd9
 When I go to cross that river she is comfort by my side
G                                 D
 When I try to understand she just opens up her eyes

Solo: | D | Am | G | D | (2 times)

           D          Am                             G                 D
There's a big, a big hard sun beating on the big people in the big hard world

D                               Cadd9
 Once I stood to lose her when I saw what I had done
G                                          D
 Bowed down and threw away the hours of her garden and her sun
D                         Cadd9
 So I tried to warn her, I turned to see her weep
G                                     D
 Forty days and forty nights and it's still coming down on me

           D          Am                             G                 D
There's a big, a big hard sun beating on the big people in the big hard world (repeat and fade)
