TRUTH AND BONE - (discography)
by Heather Nova
Intro : D D A Bm G D Sometime I can feel you breathing into me D A Bm G D And these hands I can feel them tugging at my sleeve A Em D I move through the day in the rhythms that I've known. D A Em G D I've got this crazy dream of stripping down to truth and bone D A Em G All of it, all of it, all of it stripped down D A Em G D All of it, all of it, all of it, to truth and bone My mouth is full of secrets I'm too afraid to tell My body's full of longing for you to know me well A Em D I move through the day in the rhythms that I've known. D A Em G D I've got this crazy dream of stripping down to truth and bone D A Em G All of it, all of it, all of it stripped down D A Em G D All of it, all of it, all of it, to truth and bone A Em G All of it, all of it, all… is stripped down D A Em G All of it, all of it all... to truth and bone D A Bm I think of sinking in way over my shoulders G D Let the water, the water take me in and I A Need you to cut through to where I'm hidden, Bm G D I'm awkward and I'm too polite I want A Bm Two stars for arms like Orion I could G D Breathe in, I could breathe out and A Bm G If I could only lose myself, I would lose my, myself in you A Em D I move through the day in the rhythms that I've known. D A Em G D I've got this crazy dream of stripping down to truth and bone D A Em G All of it, all of it, all of it stripped down D A Em G D All of it, all of it, all of it, to truth and bone A Em G All of it, all of it, all… stripped down D A Em ~ D ~ All of it, all of it all... to truth and bone

I'M ON FIRE - (discography) by Bruce Springsteen Sometimes (like on Wonderlust), the song is played with a capo on the second fret. G Hey little boy is your mother home Did she go and leave you all alone C Em I got a bad desire C D G Ooh, I'm on fire Tell me now baby is she good to you Does she do to you the things I don’t do I can take you higher Ooh, I'm on fire Ooh, I'm on fire C D G C Sometimes it's like someone took a knife baby Edgy and dull and cut a six-inch valley Em Through the middle of my soul At night I wake up with the sheets soaking wet And a freight train running through the middle of my head Only you can cool my desire Ooh, I'm on fire Ooh, I'm on fire Ooh, I'm on fire C D G Em G x8 Picking : G C E--------0--------0-+-------0-------0-+---------0------0-+--------2-------2-+ B---3--------3------+--1-------1------+----0-------0-----+---3-------3------+ G-----0--------0----+----0-------0----+------0-------0---+-----2---2---2---+ D----------0---------+---------2-------+-----------2-------+-0----------------+ A---------------------+-3---------------+-2-----------------+-------------------+ E-3------------------+------------------+--------------------+-------------------+ Heather changes her picking from time to time, but this is he one she seems to use the most. For each part, play once the normal part and three times he bold part.
