C    F   
.........

[Verse 1]
             C
They build wooden houses on frozen ponds
         F
In the summertime when the water's gone

Diagonal lines in their rolled-out lawns
         C 
And the sage always smells so pretty
     C  
But nobody cares where the birds have gone
          F
When the rain comes down on Babylon

The stone mason's phone rings all day long
         C  
And you gotta get back to the city
[Chorus]
      F                          
I'll build my house up on this rock, baby
  G 
Every day with you
          C
There's nothin' in that town I need
        F
After everything we've been through
F                        G  
Me out in my garden and you out on your walk
            C    
Is all the distance this poor girl can take
          F   
Without listenin' to you talk
G                
I don't need their money, baby
                         C  
Just you and me on the rock
                   F     
You and me on the rock

[Verse 2]
         C               
I built paper planes when I learned to fly
        F 
Like a 747 fallin' out of the sky
    
I folded 'em crooked, now I'm wonderin' why
         C 
I could always end up in the water
      C   
But nobody's askin' why she lookin' so thin
          F 
Why she laughin' too hard or why she drinkin' again

A fallen star, she's a paper plane
         C  
She was goin' down when you caught her

[Chorus]
      F
I'll build my house up on this rock, baby
 G
Every day with you
         C                
There's nothin' in that town I need
        F 
After everything we've been through
F                        G   
Me out in my garden and you out on your walk
            C                        
Is all the distance this poor girl can take
          F         
Without listenin' to you talk
G                        
I don't need their money, baby
                        C    
Just you and me on the rock

[Bridge]
          Bb                 F      
It's an earthquake, it's a harder wind
         C                              G
It's a record breakin' tide and it is rollin' in
        Bb              F     
It's a big sea, but it can't touch you and me
                G 
It's just not water for you
               C   
And what are you?
                            F
I don't need their money, baby 

Woo

[Instrumental]
C    F  
.......
[Chorus]
       F
I'll build my house up on this rock, baby
 G 
Every day with you
          C 
There's nothin' in that town I need
        F      
After everything we've been through
F                        G 
Me out in my garden and you out on your walk
            C                    
Is all the distance this old girl can take
         F     
Without listenin' to you talk
G
I don't need their money, baby
                        C  
Just you and me on the rock

[Outro]
                            F  
I don't need their money, baby (I don't need their money, baby)
                        C  
Just you and me on the rock (Just you and me on the rock)
                   F      C
You and me on the rock........
