Stone Chords by Jaymes Young

[Intro]
G C G G C Em

[Verse]
     G                             C       G
Your father came and went like the ocean's tide
        G                    C        Em
And the day he left he never said goodbye
     G                                C           G
Your mother started drinking like the whole world died
            G                     C        Em
You've been waiting for a miracle all your life

[Refrain]
             Em          G       C
Cause if the fires don't burn it down
    Em                 G
The rains will wash it away
          Em          G       C
If you're looking for solid ground
  Em               D
A stone will never break

[Chorus]
           C        G
So give me all your pain
    Em        G       C
And love will set you free
        C        G
Give me all your shame
    Em       G         C
Put all your weight on me
                Am             C          G
And I'll be the stone that you need me to be

[Verse]
    G                         C      G
You spend your nights looking at the stars
G                           C         Em
Thinking your life would be better on Mars
G                           C       G
Checking your pulse just to feel it beat
G                      C        Em
Looking for a stone to keep the peace

[Chorus]
           C        G
So give me all your pain
    Em        G       C
And love will set you free
        C        G
Give me all your shame
    Em       G         C
Put all your weight on me
                Am             C          G
And I'll be the stone that you need me to be

[Refrain]
             Em          G       C
Cause if the fires don't burn it down
    Em                 G
The rains will wash it away
          Em          G       C
If you're looking for solid ground
  Em               D
A stone will never break

[Chorus]
           C        G
So give me all your pain
    Em        G       C
And love will set you free
        C        G
Give me all your shame
    Em       G         C
Put all your weight on me
           C        G
So give me all your pain
    Em        G       C
And love will set you free
        C        G
Give me all your shame
    Em       G         C
Put all your weight on me
                Am             C          G
And I'll be the stone that you need me to be
                Am             C          G
And I'll be the stone that you need me to be
