Intro: F C G# A#

F        C
I wasn't willing
   G#
To fight on the floor
A#                              F
Throwing the chairs through the door
             C
And I wasn't willing
   G#
To fight on the floor
A#                      F
Something to say to the poor

              C
The storms in July
G#
Took off the trees
A#                        F
Took off the place to be
            C
The animals died
G#
Once in a while
A#
Once in a while

And I wasn't willing
To make up the bed
Folding the sheets to your head
And I wasn't willing
To say it again
Waiting for things to be

The storms in July
Took off the trees
Took off the place to be
The animals died
Once in a while
Once in a while
