INTRO
 
Dm G Am G
Dm G Am G
 
 
VERSE 1
 
Dm                 G
   All I had hoped for
                   Am
I kept inside your car
                   G
The rabbit in the barn
 
Dm               G
   Most of all I wait
                  Am
I wait beside the door
                  G
I wait beside the door
 
Dm           G
   Oh, I was wrong
                 Am
Trembling in the cage
                      G
I was diamonds in the cage
 
Dm            G
   In seven hours
            Am
I consider death
                          G
And your father called to yell at me
                           Dm
"You little boy, you little boy"
 
 
CHORUS
 
             G
Hoo-oo-oo Oo-oo
              Am
Hoo-oo-oo Oo-ah-ah
          G       Dm
Hoo-oo-oo Oo-oooooooo
             G
Hoo-oo-oo Oo-oo
              Am
Hoo-oo-oo Oo-ah-ah
          G       Dm
Hoo-oo-oo Oo-oooooooo
 
 
VERSE 2
 
Dm           G
   Found out you cheated me
                  Am
I ran behind the barn
                  G
And cut my hands somehow
 
Dm                G
   Blood in the meadow lark
                      Am
I punched your ears instead
                     G
I punched you in the head
                                 Dm
You only laughed and laughed and laughed
 
          G
How I was wrong
                  Am
tingling from the kill
              G
You tickle me until
                         Dm
You devil bird, you evil still
 
              G
I slept on my arms
                Am
Sleeping on the sill
                      G
I was sleeping in the room with you
                           Dm
You little boy, you little boy
 
 
VERSE 3
 
                          G
How could you run from me now
                           Am
The loneliest chime in the house
                           G
The loneliest chime in the house
                           Dm
You let it out, you let it out
 
                      G
Come to me Calvary still
                          Am
I'm weeding and raking until
                            G
I'm bleeding in spite of my love for you
                          Dm
It bruised and bruised my will
 
                  G
Counting alluvial plains
                            Dm
The breathing inside of the range
                            G
You touched me inside of my cage
                            Dm
Beneath my shirt your hands embraced me
 
                          G
Come to me feathered and frayed
                     Am
For I am the ugliest prey
                     G
For I am the ugliest prey
                              Dm
Beyond the reckless, reckless praise
 
 
CHORUS
 
Dm              G
   Hoo-oo-oo Oo-oo
              Am
Hoo-oo-oo Oo-ah-ah
          G       Dm
Hoo-oo-oo Oo-oooooooo
 
 
BRIDGE
 
F                          C
   You said you'd wait for me
                    Dm
Down by the tannery creek
                           G
Far out by the clothesline where
                           F
We used to kiss behind the sheets
 
                        C
Wrapped in a blanket of red
                        Dm
The owl and the tanager sat
                        G
The owl and the tanager said
                            Dm
One waits until the hour is death
 
 
CHORUS
 
             G
Hoo-oo-oo Oo-oo
              Am
Hoo-oo-oo Oo-ah-ah
          G       Dm
Hoo-oo-oo Oo-oooooooo
             G
Hoo-oo-oo Oo-oo
              Am
Hoo-oo-oo Oo-ah-ah
          G       Dm
Hoo-oo-oo Oo-oooooooo
