from the album Tigerlily

Here's what I've worked out in terms of the chords.  I haven't worked on the
lead
guitar stuff however.

First of all, you need to capo the 1st fret on your guitar.
The chords I have given are relative to the capo.


Intro :    C    G    Am    G    F    (x2)

Verse 1 :
           C      G       Am        G       F
             Doctors have come from distant cities

                            C     G       Am
             just to see me stand over my bed

             G         F
             disbelieving what they're seeing


Chorus :              C         G          Am
             they say I must be one of the wonders

                G         F
             of God's own creation

                    C           G                Am
             and as far as they can see they can offer

             G     F
             no explanation

Verse 2 : same pattern of chords as Verse 1 (C G Am G F)

           newspapers ask intimate questions
           want confessions they reach into my head
           to steal the glory of my story

Chorus

Bridge : Dm   C  Am    F
                 I believe

                Dm    C         Am    F
                fate smiled and destiny

                Am                        F
                laughed as she came to my cradle

                Am                       F
                "know this child will be able"

                Am                     F
                laughed as my body she lifted

                Am                       F
                "know this child will be gifted

                 Am              F                 C      G   Am
                 with love, with patience and with faith,

                 G              F
                 she'll make her way"

verse 3 (just like verses 1 & 2)

           people see me I'm a challenge
           to your balance, I'm over your heads
           how I confound you and astound you
           to know I must be one the wonders of...(Chorus)

bridge (just like the 1st one)

          I believe fate smiled & destiny
          laughed as she came to my cradle
          "know this child will be able"
          laughed as she came to my mother
          "know this child will not suffer"
          laughed as my body she lifted
          "know this child will be gifted
          with love, with patience and with faith
          she'll make her way...she'll make her way

I hope that this helps out someone!
