                Dave Barnes - Sticks and Stones

Standard tuning; capo on 3rd fret

Intro + verse:

 F#m aug5     C

 |G     F#m aug5     C| x9

Chorus:

        C   Em  Cadd9      Dsus4     G   Gvar1  Cadd9

I'd rather have Sticks and stones, brok - en    bones,

         Cadd9    Dsus4   Em

Than the words you say to me

  C       Em   Cadd9  Dsus4      G   Gvar1 Cadd9

'Cause I know bruises heal, and cuts will  seal,

         Cadd9           D        |G     F#m aug5   C| x2

But your words beat the life from me.

Verse 2 - played with some variation in picking...listen to the song and you'll get it:

Sometimes your words are thick as lead...

     D           G      Gvar1  Cadd9

To forgive and still be   letting go
