Come now and listen babe

D5                    A5
   I gotta reason why I behave

    Like a child with a light in eyes

         D5               E5    F#5
Running naked on a cold winter night

    Like a pigeon that's spreadin' his wings 

   D5           A5
to fly away to better things

    Like a hammer that has made a dent

   D5                   E5          F#m        G
in every little single cent you’ve spent

             B                                        G
Said oh God     you’ve got to help me a little bit

you’ve got to have a relief file for me

Now I know I’m always right, that’s a

D5                       A5
thought that never even crossed my mind

Don’t touch me there I’ve gotta be pure

     D5                  E5        F#m
So smack that hand, and read this verse

B5                          D5        A5
    So I wrecked your life, what the heck

   B5                   D5          E5    F#5  Bm  G
My new found faith will     pay by check

E  G       Bm                       G     A
     This life’s took a toll on my soul

Bm   G         E  G         Bm
Oh_______yeah________ this life's took a toll on my soul

G A  Bm G  E G  Bm    G A  Bm G  E G  Bm   G A G

So this is me and that’s my song
And I guess that you can see that we don’t get along
I’ve shut the doors on what we had
so now she can sleep with her Dear ol’ Dad
my eyes are dry and my hands are clean
and I can’t believe all the things I’ve seen
Oh My God!!
