[Verse 1]
    C             C
The angel Moroni asleep in the carport
         C                   F
With the newspaper under his arm
    G                    G
It seems I was late to deliver his car keys
      G                            C
So it looks like we are staying behind

    C
Was Lucifer bashful
   C                        F
In hiding his face from the Lord
     G
Dear Jesus, forgive me
    G                   C
I'm only doing as I was told

    C
For as it is written
       C                        F
I will soon one day face my own fire
     G
This world will go with me
         G                       C
If I can just get them all on my side


[Chorus]
      F       G            C
Carry me over rainbows and Rainier
      F       G            C
Carry me over rainbows and Rainier


[Verse 3]
      C
I was late to the parlor
         C
When the wind it blew forward
    C                      F
And demanded we get out of town
   G
So me and Moroni
         G            G
Took the keys to the steeple
     G                       C
And awaited Armageddon to go down

           C
Place your queens on the table
        C
Who are weeping for your daughters
        C                             F
Who are waiting for their Sunday to return
      G
Every heart will be broken
   G
Prophetic poems spoken
         G                          C
From the mouths of every baby to be born


[Chorus]
      F       G            C
Carry me over rainbows and Rainier
      F       G            C
Carry me over rainbows and Rainier

[Bridge]
Am                 G
 Let your cries be enjoyed
       F                           C    C/B
Let it always and forever fill the void
Am                    G
  Allow my heart some room
       F                                 G   [walk up on the 5th string 0-2-3 then 4th string 0-2)
May it be so that you'll one day need me soon

[Verse 4]
   C
My wheels that are turning
       C
And my back to the window
     C                          F
I collected every wave from the shore
  G                     G
I forgot I was human... [pause]
                 G
And I laid up my emotions
                        G             C
And I knocked them like dishes to the floor

[Chorus]
      F       G            C
Carry me over rainbows and Rainier
      F       G            C        C F C
Carry me over rainbows and Rainier
