Key C                     “Prayer of the Changing Leaf”                   Music by Victoria Williams
.                                                                                           Inspired by Tennessee Williams, Night of the Iguana
.
Intro               C                                           C
.
.                      C                        F                           Am                     G
.               How calmly does the Olive branch, observe the sky, begin to blanch
.                    C                         C                              F                       G                   G
.               Without a cry, without a Prayer, with no betrayal of despair
.                       C                               F                           Am                       Am
.               Some time while light obscures the tree, the zenith of it’s Life will be
.                   Bb                      Bb                       C                     C
.               Gone……                    past……                   forever…….
.                              Bb                      Bb                       Bb                     G
.                And from thence,                                       a second  History will
.                   C                         C                       F                      G
.                 Commence,                               A chronicle no longer gold
.                      F                          G                        G                      Am
.                 A bargaining with mist and mold….                  And, finally
.                      Am                        F                          G                       G
.                the broken stem, the plummeting to earth, and then
.                   Am                        Am                           F                          F
.                An intercourse not well designed, for Beings of a Golden kind
.                       Am                            Am                          F                             G
.                Whose native green must arch above, the Earth’s obscene, corrupting Love
.                   G                            Am                          Am                         F
.                                                 And still the ripe fruit and the branch, observe the sky
.                   F                             C                          C                              F
.                  begin to blanch, without a cry, without a Prayer….with no betrayal
.                   G                          G                            C                         C
.                  of despair…..                          Oh…..!        Courage, could you not
.                    F                          G                           C                      C
.                   as well,                                           select a                    second
.                    F                           G                          C                       C
.                   place to dwell?                        Not only in that      Golden Tree
.                   F                           G                           C                        C
.                                                                      But in the frightened Heart of Me…..
.                   F                           G      End
