[Verse]
G   C                                   G    Am      F
Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head
       C                                   Am           C
And as I climb into an empty bed, oh well, enough said
             F             G        F                          G
I know it's over still I cling, I don't know where else I can go
Am      F    G
Over, over
     C                                  Em      Am    F
Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head

[Verse 1]
             C
You see the sea wants to take me, the knife wants to slit me
Em                   Am
Do you think you can help me?
F            C
Sad veiled bride please be happy
                   Am
Handsome groom give her room
F      G      C
Loud loutish lover treat her kindly though she needs you
F  Am
More than she loves you

[Hook]
     F                      G
I know it's over, still I cling
  F                           G
I don't know where else I can go
C    Dm     G
Over, over

[Verse 2]
C
I know it's over
                    Am                              F
It never really began but in my heart it was so real
             G                    C
And she even spoke to me and said
                     Em                   Am           F G
"If you're so funny, why are you on your own tonight?"
C                          Em                  Am            G
"And if you're so clever, why are you on your own tonight?"
C                                    Em                  Am             F
"And if you're so very entertaining, why are you on your own tonight?"
C                                                Em      Am
"And if you're so very good looking, why do you sleep alone tonight?"
      F  C
I know, because tonight is just like any other night
           Em             Am           F
That's why you're on your own tonight
C                                 Em Am
With your triumphs and your charms

While they are in each other's arms

[Verse 3]
F                                       G
It's so easy to laugh, it's so easy to hate
           F                        G
It takes strength to be gentle and kind
F       Dm7                    G
Over, over, it's over, it's over

It's so easy to laugh, it's so easy to hate
          C                      F
It takes guts to be gentle and kind
Am      F     G
Over, over

{Verse 4]
C                     F       Am    G
Love is natural and real
                     Em             F
But not for you my love, not tonight my love
C                    F    Am
Love is natural and real
                            Em       F    G
But not for such as you and I, my love
     C                     Am           Em        F    G   F
Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head
     C                     Am           F         Am   F   G   F
Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head
     C            F        Am                    Em
Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head
