Capo on 1st Fret

E               A                  E
Levon wears his war wound like a crown.
A                   E
He calls his child Jesus
B                    C#m
`Cause he likes the name
       Abm7               A                F#m7
And he sends him to the finest school in town

     E      A               E
And Levon, Levon likes his money
A                    E
He makes a lot they say
B               C#m
Spend his days counting
      Abm7           A   F#m7
In a garage by the motorway

Abm7              C#m                  A
He was born a pauper to a pawn on a Christmas day
         E                   F#m7                  E
When the New York Times said God is dead and the war's begun
A             E         F#m7
Alvin Tostig has a son today

         E       A                       E
And he shall be Levon and he shall be a good man
                 A                            E
And he shall be Levon in tradition with the family plan
                 A                       E
And he shall be Levon and he shall be a good man
A        E    B
He shall be Levon

E            A                  E
Levon sells cartoon balloons in town
A                    E
His family business thrives
B                            C#m
Jesus blows up balloons all day
     Abm7                  A           F#m7
Sits on the porch swing watching them fly

E              A               E
And Jesus, he wants to go to Venus
A                  E
Leaving Levon far behind
B                     C#m
Take a balloon and go sailing
      Abm7      A           F#m7
While Levon, Levon slowly dies
