All the World is Green

Song Author Tom Waits Lyrics by: Tom Waits Performer: Tom Waits Submitted by: cazteclo
I [Bm]fell into the [Em]ocean
[A]when you became my [D]wife
[G]I risked it [Em]all against the sea
[F#]to have a better [Bm]life   

[Bm]Marie, you [Em]are the wide blue [A]sky  
and men do foolish [D]things
[G]You turn kings [Em]into beggars
[F#]and beggars into [Bm]kings

Pre[G]tend that you owe me [D]nothing
and [A]all the world is [D]green
[G]we can bring back the [D]old days again
and [A]all the world is [D]green

[Bm]The face forgives the [Em]mirror
[A]The worm forgives the [D]plow
[G]The question [Em]begs the answer
[F#]Can you forgive me some[Bm]how   

[Bm]Maybe when our story's [Em]over   
[A]we'll go where it's always [D]spring
[G]The band is playing our [Em]song again
[F#]and all the world is [Bm]green

Pre[G]tend that you owe me [D]nothing
and [A]all the world is [D]green
[G]can we bring back the [D]old days again
when [A]all the world is [D]green?

[Bm]When the moon is yellow [Em]silver
[A]on the things that [D]summer brings
[G]It's a love you'd [Em]kill for
[F#]and all the world is [Bm]green

[Bm]He's balancing a [Em]diamond
[A]on a blade of [D]grass
[G]The dew will [Em]settle on our grave
[F#]when all the world is [Bm]green

Pre[G]tend that you owe me [D]nothing
and [A]all the world is [D]green
[G]we can bring back the [D]old days again
and [A]all the world is [D]green

[Cm]He's balanc[Fm]ing a diamond
[Bb]on a blade of [Eb]grass
[G#]The dew will [Fm]settle on our grave
[G]when all the world is [Cm]green

I fell into the ocean
when you became my wife
I risked it all against the sea
to have a better life

Marie, you are the wide blue sky
and men do foolish things
You turn kings into beggars
and beggars into kings

Pretend that you owe me nothing
and all the world is green
we can bring back the old days again
and all the world is green

The face forgives the mirror
The worm forgives the plow
The question begs the answer
Can you forgive me somehow

Maybe when our story's over
we'll go where it's always spring
The band is playing our song again
and all the world is green

Pretend that you owe me nothing
and all the world is green
can we bring back the old days again
when all the world is green?

When the moon is yellow silver
on the things that summer brings
It's a love you'd kill for
and all the world is green

He's balancing a diamond
on a blade of grass
The dew will settle on our grave
when all the world is green

Pretend that you owe me nothing
and all the world is green
we can bring back the old days again
and all the world is green


He's balancing a diamond
on a blade of grass
The dew will settle on our grave
when all the world is green
