In The Yard
When listening to the song, the chords are slightly off-beat with the words, which 
is why a lot of them are displayed between the words themselves. During the 
chorus, the strumming pattern differs slightly here, sort of like going from 3/4 
time to 6/8 time, but listening to the song as you play will help you figure it 
out. Also, I like playing this song with a capo on the 5th fret, but it still 
sounds fine without it. :)

Intro: F  C  G x2

Verse:
               F                    C            G
   Last night I dreamed we'd found a stand of trees 
             F          Am       G
   framing a pond and a field in between
             Dm            Am                 G               
   And with a hammer and a blade and our four hands 
                  F      E
   here's what we made

F           C           G                           
   The logs we peeled and stacked in a ring
               F                   Am             G               
   and then we crowned it, our tiny house, with tin 
             Dm             Am               G            F          
   And by the fire, flickering bronze and gold across your face 
              E      G                                               
   I heard you say

Chorus:
              C            F                             G        
   It may not be a grand parade of snow capped peaks, oooh 
          C        F                           G                  
   no river silver-backed crashing through, oooh 
                   C            F             Em                   
   but we have our black-haired babes running free 
               Dm       G                                         
   through the woods, oooo

   F                         C            G                    
   Squirrels in the rafters, wrens in the eaves 
       F                            Am               G             
   red dirt neath our nails, orange stains on our knees 
   Dm              Am            G             F          E     G      
   blackberries in June down the path without our shoes
   
Chorus:
              C            F                             G        
   It may not be a grand parade of snow capped peaks, oooh 
          C        F                           G                  
   no river silver-backed crashing through, oooh 
                   C            F             Em                   
   but we have our black-haired babes running free 
               Dm       G                                         
   through the woods, oooo
