Bread and Wine

Michael Timmins


Intro on first verse

[D] Well I'm lyin' in my bed, a [F] tangle of arms and legs,
but the [C] one that I'm with is not the one [D] bouncing 'round my head.
I could turn this into song or [F] cheap fantasy,
but [C] whatever I've ignited [Em] will [D] still burn in me.

[Am] Bread and wine, [C] bread and wine, [Em]
your heart ain't nearly as guilty as [D] mine. [F] [C] [Em] [D]

I'm a dark heavy heart. I'm a [F] soul full of holes.
I'm a [C] boat that is sinking, muddy water's threatening this [D] baggage in my hold.
And there's a line in my head from an [F] old gospel song,
but no [C] matter how hard I [Em] try the [D] words just come out wrong.

[Am] Bread and wine, [C] bread and wine [Em]
your thoughts ain't nearly as wicked as [D] mine

[F] [C] [D] [F] [C] [D]

[Am] Bread and wine, [C] bread and wine, [Em]
your cross ain't nearly as heavy as [D] mine. [F] [C] [D]

I've been graced by the gift of a [F] gold wedding band.
I've been [C] soothed by the simple caress of [D] my true love's hand.
And yet I'm lyin' in my bed, a [F] tangle of arms and legs,
and the [C] one that I'm with is not the [Em] one that [D] I'm dreaming of.

[Am] Bread and wine, [C] bread and wine, [Em]
won't you please be my bread and [D] wine.

[Am] Bread and wine, [C] bread and wine, [Em]
won't you please [NC] be my bread and wine. [D] [F] [C] [Em] [D]


Tabbed by Derrick: The opening bit is a simple hammer on/pull of the 2nd fret, G string, moving right into the [D] chord.
