Intro: F  G  Am  G/Am  Am

             Am                                 Em                  
it's not the clothes that have been torn by the black roses' thorns
        Am                          Em
nor the scent that you left for the bloodhounds to get
         F              G             Am     
it's the solace of your words that'll fail them

         Am                          Em
and it's not your perfume that turns heads in the room
        Am                       Em
nor the lipstick glistening that starts people whispering
         G              F                C
it's the beauty of your movement that'll tell them

   F                    G
oh mothers prepare your stones of fire
     C             B/C   Am
your daughter will walk among them
         F                        G
she's outgrown the gown you've so patiently wove
           C             B/C       Am
she's bare breasted, and head held high
F                      F#/D            G
as she walks among the rumours and the rye

    Am                     Em
you talk at the beach, the incoming tide
   Am                    Em
is just out of reach, by horseback you'll ride
    F                        G                        Am
and darling the sands are so close it's a cloud in my memory

     Am                      Em
your nervousness shows, it's pretty from trying
    Am                       Em
but don't lie to me 'cause I know when you're lying
        G                F               C
there's no need to act a fool, he walks among you

   F                    G
oh mothers prepare your stones of fire
     C             B/C   Am
your daughter will walk among them
         F                        G
she's outgrown the gown you've so patiently wove
           C             B/C       Am
she's bare breasted, and head held high
F                      F#/D            G
as she walks among the rumours and the rye


  Am                      Em
I see by the way that you look through the day
         Am                         Em
that you find yourself useless, the vines you grow fruitless
    F             G                       Am
but darling, even willows prosper through weakness

         Am                   Em
and your hair covers over the nicest of features
       Am                               Em
but it don't hide the fact you're still covered with leeches
      G           F              C
and I mean not to insult, but to love you

   F                    G
oh mothers prepare your stones of fire
     C             B/C   Am
your daughter will walk among them
         F                        G
she's outgrown the gown you've so patiently wove
           C             B/C       Am
she's bare breasted, and head held high
F                      F#/D            G
as she walks among the rumours and the rye


Am  G/Am  Am
