Key: C
Intro: | Em | D | C | Am B | 

Verse: 1 
Em                                           D 
 When all the worst we fear lets fall its weight 
                                      C 
When the gyre widens on and when the wave breaks 
                                   Am 
When St. Peter loses cool and bars the gates 
     B                                Em 
When Atlas acts the maggot, makes his arms shake 
                                        D 
When the birds are heard again in their singin' 
                                C 
Once atrocity is hoarse from voicin' shame 
                                              Am 
And when the earth is trembling on some new beginnin' 
         B                           C6 
With the same sweet shock of when Adam first came 

Pre-Chorus: 
Em 
Be, be, be, be, be 
G 
Be as you've always been 
C 
Be, be, be, be, be 
Am 
Be as you've always been 
(Lover, be good to me) 

Em Be as you've always been (Lover, be good to me) G Be like the love that discovered the sin (Lover, be good to me) C Am That freed the first man and will do so again Em And, lover, be good to me (Lover, be good to me) Em Be that hopeful feeling when Eden was lost (Lover, be good to me) G It's been deaf to our laughter since the master was crossed (Lover, be good to me) C Am Which side of the wall really suffers that cost? Em Oh, lover, be good to me
Instrumental: | Em | D | Verse: 2 Em When the man who gives the order D Is born next time 'round on the boat sent back C When the bodies starvin' at the border Am B Are on TV givin' people the sack Em Oh, when the sea rises to meet us D Oh, when there's nothin' left for you and I to do C Oh, when there's nobody upstairs to receive us Am B C6 When I have no kind words left, love for you Pre-Chorus: Em Be, be, be, be, be G Be as you've always been C Be, be, be, be, be Am Be as you've always been (Lover, be good to me)
Em Ah, be love in its disrepute (Lover, be good to me) G Scorches the hillside and salts every root (Lover, be good to me) C Am And watches the slowin' and starvin' of troops Em And, lover, be good to me (Lover, be good to me) Em Be there and just as you stand (Lover, be good to me) G Or be like the rose that you hold in your hand (Lover, be good to me) C Am That will grow bold in a barren and desolate land Em Oh, lover, be good to me
Outro Em Love, won't you be Love, won't you be G Be as you've always been? C Love, won't you be Am Love, won't you be Em Be as you've always been? Em Love, won't you be Love, won't you be G Be as you've always been? C Love, won't you be Am Love, won't you be Em Em Be as you've always been?
