The giant of Illinois
A chord diagramFF            A chord diagramC majorC              A chord diagramG+G
 Died from a blister on his toe

      A chord diagramC majorC           A chord diagramG+G               A chord diagramA minorAm             A chord diagramFF
After walking all day through the first winter's snow

A chord diagramC majorC        A chord diagramG+G             A chord diagramA minorAm
Throwing bits of stale bread
A chord diagramFF         A chord diagramC majorC           A chord diagramG+G
 To the last speckled doves
  A chord diagramC majorC           A chord diagramG+G        A chord diagramA minorAm           A chord diagramFF
He never even felt his shoe full of blood

Delirious with pain, his bedroom walls began to glow
      A chord diagramC majorC             A chord diagramG+G       A chord diagramA minorAm                 A chord diagramFF
And he felt himself soaring up through falling snow

    A chord diagramC majorC             A chord diagramG+G       A chord diagramA minorAm
And the sky was a woman's arms
    A chord diagramC majorC         A chord diagramG+G       A chord diagramC majorC
The sky was a woman's arms

  A chord diagramC majorC        A chord diagramG+G      A chord diagramA minorAm
A chord diagramA augmentedA boy with a club foot
A chord diagramFF          A chord diagramC majorC            A chord diagramG+G
 Had sat next to him in school
 A chord diagramC majorC          A chord diagramG+G                      A chord diagramA minorAm                    A chord diagramFF
Once upon a summer's day they went wandering through the woods

     A chord diagramC majorC         A chord diagramG+G        A chord diagramA minorAm
They spotted a sleeping swan
       A chord diagramFF    A chord diagramC majorC           A chord diagramG+G
On the banks of a muddy stream
         A chord diagramC majorC               A chord diagramG+G             A chord diagramA minorAm               A chord diagramFF
And they stormed it with rocks till it collapsed in the reeds

     A chord diagramC majorC            A chord diagramG+G                  A chord diagramA minorAm            A chord diagramFF
They lay out on a green lawn full of chocolate and lemonade
    A chord diagramC majorC         A chord diagramG+G             A chord diagramA minorAm        A chord diagramFF
But under the blue bowl the giant was afraid

            A chord diagramC majorC         A chord diagramG+G       A chord diagramA minorAm
Because the sky was a woman's arms
    A chord diagramC majorC         A chord diagramG+G       A chord diagramC majorC
The sky was a woman's arms
