Middle 8:
           A chord diagramG minorGm
I could've curled up in one footprint,

One giant laugh, one giant hand

Until the sickness and the treatment

         A chord diagramC majorC                              A chord diagramG+G
When his wedding ring must've slipped into the muddy yard
   A chord diagramFF
At least that's what he figured when he noticed it was gone
      A chord diagramA minorAm            A chord diagramFF            A chord diagramC majorC               A chord diagramG+G
