When Doves Cry Chords
Damien Rice
When Doves Cry


     Am             C9            G

  C                  C9                  G

Am                  C9                G
Take if you will a picture of you and I engaged in a kiss.
     Am                 C9                      G
The sweat of your body covers me.  Can you my darling,
Can you picture this?

Dream if you can a courtyard:  Oceans and violets in bloom.
Animals strike curious poses.  They feel the heat,
The heat between me and you.

Touch if you will my stomach.  Feel how it trembles inside.
You've got the butterflies all tied up.  Don't make me chase you
'Cause even doves have pride.

How can you just leave me standing; alone in the world so cold.
Maybe I'm just too demanding.  Maybe I'm just like my father,
Too cold.  Maybe I'm just like my mother.  She's never satisfied.
            Am               C9
Never satisfied with each other.

G                                                                           This is what 
sounds like when the doves cry.
Am  C9    G          Am  C9         
   Don't cry.  Don't cry.....Don't cry.  Don't cry.  Don't cry.
C9      G             Am     C9    G        
            Am       C9  G
   Don't cry.  'Cause baby, baby, baby, baby, I'm gonna leave you.
                                        Am     C9      G
I ain't your kin women.  I've got you rambled.
Am                               C9     G
I'll Leave you when the summer comes.
Leave you when the summer comes along.

Am, Am, Am, C9*, Dm, Dm, 
Dm (several times)
C9, C9, G, G, Am, Am

 Am                    C9       G         Am
Cause, babe, babe, babe, baby, babe, I'm gonna leave.
Am                  C9                G
Take if you will a picture of you and I engaged in a kiss.
     Am                  C9                    G
The sweat of your body covers me.  Can you my darling,
Can you picture this?


You'll have to listen to the song for the picking patterns, and he may be using 
variations of the chords at times.  I'm kind of new to tabbing out songs so don't necessarily 
this at face value.
