The Giving Tree Chords
(Pitch for "leaves": B string- 5th fret)

VERSE 1
           Am            Em              G D                              
All the leaves on the Giving Tree have fallen
            
            Am   Em        G D
No shade to crawl in underneath

Am                     Em
I've got scars from a pocket knife

G      D     Am    Em      G D
Where you carved your heart into me

CHORUS
             Am        Em
If all you wanted was love

D     A
Why would you use me up

Em            Fm           G  D                    
Cut me down, build a boat, and sail away

Am      Em       C          G
When all I wanted to be was your giving tree

Em            Fm                C   G     
Settle down, build a home, and make you happy?

VERSE 2
Am            Em                  G D 
I lie in the dead of night and I wonder
 
      Am  Em         G   D
Whose covers you're between

Am                  Em
And it's sad laying in his bed

G   D           Am  Em           G  D
You feel hollow, so you crawl home back to me

CHORUS
             Am        Em
If all you wanted was love

D     A
Why would you use me up

Em            Fm           G  D                    
Cut me down, build a boat, and sail away

Am      Em       C          G
When all I wanted to be was your giving tree

Em            Fm                C   G     
Settle down, build a home, and make you happy?

BRIDGE
Am
Well, I see a trail that starts

C                         G
A line of broken hearts behind you
             
               D
That lead you back to me

Am
The once sad and lonely fool

C                              D     A  G
With nothing left but roots to show, oh oh

CHORUS
             Am        Em
If all you wanted was love

D     A
Why would you use me up

Em            Fm           G  D                    
Cut me down, build a boat, and sail away

Am      Em       C          G
When all I wanted to be was your giving tree

Em            Fm                C   G     
Settle down, build a home, and make you happy?



(One Strum per chord)
        Em            Fm                C   G     
Settle down, build a home, and make you happy?
