Hand Me Downs


by Indigo Girls (Amy Ray)
(Capo 2nd Fret)

( Am - - - / C - - - / G - - - / D - - - /   x4  //)

I've taken so many down, I've helped all to dismount.
I've followed so many down, I take their hand me down.

Am - - - / C - - - / G - - - / D - - - /   x4  /   x4   /  x4  //

 C:	All with hope , all with hope that
Emptiness brings fullness and
Loss of love brings wholeness  (2x) ... to us all.

Am - - - / C - - - / G - D - / C - D /  x2  //  (2x)
[1]
( Am - - - / C - - - / G - - - / D - - - /   x4  /  x 4  //)

Everything that I believe, crawls from underneath the streets.
Everything I truly love, comes from somewhere high above.
Everything that I believe, is wrong with you is wrong with me.
Everything I truly love, I love in you I love me.

 C:	So give me hope, give me hope that
Emptiness brings fullness and
Loss of love brings wholeness to us all.
[2]
( Am - - - /    //)

 B:	Swear you can't swim the river,
I saw you running to jump in.
I swore I would never be your sinner,
Until I held your sin.

G - - - /    / D - - - /   /   x2   /   x2   /  G - - - /    //
( Am - - - / C - - - / G - - - / D - - - //  repeat x6 )

Now you ask me why I'm here, the same as you, I'm scared, it's fear.
I've become the beggar now, you've become the saint somehow.
Twist the words and place the blame,	  tell me now, aren't we the same?
Tripping in our yellow feet, checking underneath our sheets,

 C:	For some hope, give me hope that
Emptiness brings fullness and
Loss of love brings wholeness  (2x) ... to us all.
