Patty Loveless - A Handful of Dust

Verse 1:
Break us down by our elements
       F          G
And you might think He failed
We're not copper for one penny or
       F     G       G
Even iron for one nail
         F                C
And a dollar would be plenty
           G       C
To buy twenty of us
          F          C
Until true love is added
            G           C
To these handfuls of dust

F          C     G
Handful of dust, handful of dust
F           C           G         C
Sums up the richest and poorest of us
F               C            G    Am
True love makes priceless the worthless
F              C           G          C
Whenever it's added to a handful of dust

Verse 2:
However small though our worth may be
When shared between two hearts
Is even more than it would ever be
Measured on its own apart
And our half what it could be 
Is now twice what it's worth
When true love is added 
To these handfuls of dust
