Blood Orange – Augustine Chords

No Capo

[Verse 1]
G
My father was a young man
D
My mother off the boat
Em
My eyes were fresh at 21
C
Bruised but still afloat
G
Our heads have hit the pavement
D
Many times before
Em
You stroke his face to soothe him
C
While knowing that there?s more

[Chorus]
G
Saint Augustine
D
Late have I loved and chose to see
Em
Skin on his skin
C
A warmth that I can feel with him
[Verse 2] G And no one even told me D The way that you should feel Em Tell me did you lose your son? C Tell me did you lose your love? G Cry and burst my deafness, while Trayvon falls asleep D The things that I would do to you Em C The things that I could do to you
[Chorus] G Saint Augustine D Late have I loved and chose to see Em Skin on his skin C A warmth that I can feel with him [Outro] G Nontetha D We heard it all from you Em Nontetha C We waited here for you G Nontetha D Kush?-o aw di bodi Em Nontetha C Aw di fambul dem?
