and you became bones
C#      G#        C#
and you became bones
C#      G#        C#
and you became bones

Lyrics:

you blunt horses. 
you casper ghosts. 
your dust jackets, creased sheets cold. 
auburn wool pockets carve blossomed boats. 
simple sandpaper. cobblered coats. 
and you became bones.
and my brothers will burst into baskets of orange fruit; 
my sister will tame all the beasts she holds high; 
my mother will break bricks to weather her windows; 
my father will worry until he goes blind; 
and we all will sleep at the bottom of the river. 
i’ll sing sonata, bring the frost-bite, bury bones, 
i’ll call niagara, down the house lights, and stay home. 
stop your novels: catch a cold, dig your gold.

Theuns Jordaan
Chords by JC Chantler

 D 
My voete stap al jare lank, soos 'n rigtingwyser op die Noordwes pad.

 G A D A 
 Met 'n brief in my hand, al die pad van Wolmaransstad.

 D 
 Ek voel al die ink uit die brief uittap.

 G 
 Ek ruik haar hare as ek saans gaan slaap.

       Em A D A 
 My ou houthuis, ver van Wolmaransstad.

 D G 
Sal jy bly, vir 'n appel en 'n ei?

                       A 
Al skuur die maan ons weg.

 A D A 
Bly my hart na jou toe trek.

 D G 
Sal jy bly, vir 'n plaas met 'n ou houthuis?

                                   A 
 Al bly die skuld teen ons deure klop.

                        D A 
Sal jy trou in 'n ou wit rok, met my?
