It's the heart that matters more ...

These chords were figured out by Matt Fleming.
Intro:
F#m          E           F#m          D
F#m                    C#m
     Start tearing the old man down
    E                    Bm                    F#m
Run past the heather and down to the old road
                  C#m                    D
Start turning the grain into the ground
                      F#m
Roll a new leaf over
       C#m                            E
In the middle of the night there's an old man
          Bm
Treading around in the gathered rain
F#m                       C#m            E
Hey mister if you want to walk on water
                         A
Would you drop a line my way

Chorus:
    E        F#m
 Omaha
             D
Somewhere in middle America
A                E                 D
Get right to the heart of matters
                            A         E
It's the heart that matters more
                     F#m              B              D
I think you'd better turn your ticket in
                                  A                  D
And leave your money right at the door
A            D

Start threading a needle
Brush past the shuttle that slides through the cold room
Start turning the wool across the wire
Roll a new life over
In the middle of the night there's an old man
Threading his toes through a bucket of rain
Hey mister you don't want to walk on water
Cause you're only going to walk all over me

Omaha
Somewhere in middle America
Get right to the heart of matters
It's the heart that matters more
I think you'd better turn your ticket in
And get your money back at the door

Start running the banner down
Drop past the color come up through the summer rain
Start turning the girl into the ground
Roll a new love over
In the middle of the day  there's a young man
Rolling around in the earth and rain
Hey mister if you're going to walk on water, you know
You're only going to walk all over me

Omaha
Somewhere in middle America
Get right to the heart of matters
It's the heart that matters more
I think you'd better turn your ticket in
And get your money back at the door
Ooooh said Omaha
It's Sunday morning
I'm coming home today.
