Hold The Morning Chords
[EDIT: Turns out the Dm was an Am and I am completely blind for not noticing it. Thanks 
to Charlie Rubash for the correction!]
If you have any more corrections please email me at get.off.my.suit(at)gmail(dot)com, or 
submit a new version if you
are that way inclined :)

*** A Note on C ***
Charlie has also said that the C should be a C/G, i.e.

|--0--|
|--1--|
|--0--|
|--2--|
|--3--|
|--3--|

And it certainly gives the chord a fuller sound, but I don't think Matt plays the low E 
on that chord - at least not at the start.
It's down to personal choice, I think. It certainly might be useful to substitute C/G in 
the later verses where it all gets a bit loud
and exciting.

Standard Tuning
Capo 2

C
Thank you for the invite
   F               C
To dance on golden streets
C
Leave the broken skyline
    F                C
And charcoal cloud debris
Am             F                     C
I would likely join you if I weren't busy
    Am            F               C
But tonight my confession list is long

G                   F                   C
I will sit back, relax, and hold my head to the sun
G                    F                   C
Sit back, relax, and hold my head to the sun.

C
We will sing to thunder
F                 C
Clap as the earth shakes
C
Hug under a hurricane
      F                C
As we bypass the fiery lake

Am             F                 C
I will read my scripture in Dostoevsky
Am            F                C
Change my television to twenty three
       G                   F                         C
I will sit back, relax and wait for what's coming to me
G                   F                   C
Sit back, relax and hold my head to the sea.

F       C         G        C
We will leave our sails on trees
F     C              G      C
While chariots swing by the breeze
F        C       G      C
Lift our lamps unto the streets
    F       C         G        Am
May all the kings and soldiers see

F        G                C
Our lives are lonely enough without destruction
Am                  F
Calm your cares and families
    G
And I will hold the morning for you

C                               F              C
Take the time for townships and classics to be read
C                                   F                C
Finding all the soft skin that will fit in a feather bed
Am               F                   C
Let me spread my paper and sleep for centuries
    Am                 F                  C
The door will be there if you choose to return
       G                   F                 C
I will sit back, relax and watch the mountaintops burn
G                   F                       C
Sit back, relax and wait for my voice to be heard.

F       C         G        C
We will leave our sails on trees
F     C              G      C
While chariots swing by the breeze
F        C       G      C
Lift our lamps unto the streets
    F       C         G        C
May all the kings and soldiers see

Am                F        G                C
All our lives are lonely enough without destruction
Am                  F
Calm your cares and families
    G             C
And be part of division
Am                F        G                C
All our lives are lonely enough without destruction
Am                  F
Calm your cares and families
    G
And I will hold the morning for you
    G                               C
And I will hold the morning for you
