Capo 3
Drop D
D/C: X30230 D/B: X20230
D/F: 300230 D/E: 200230

                   D                      D/C   D/B      D
When the arrogant goddess of love came to steal my shoes
                     D                     D/C    D/B   D
She had a white hot pistol and a homemade heart tattoo
         D/F               G               D
Singing one's to give and one's to take away
    D/F                     D/E                   D
But neither of them will keep you off your knees
      D/F                 D/E                D
The children bowed and bolted off the stage
          D/F                       G                        D
While the lion and the lamb kept fighting for the shade tree

[same chords]
When the winsome god of war came to set me free
He had a couple of coke bottles full of gasoline
Singing all I love is all that I allow
And he blew me a kiss of a big burned hand
I nearly choked with smoke and fell down
While the lion and the lamb kept shooting at a tin can

When the gun shy goddess of love came back to patch things up
She had a purple heart and mother's milk in a plastic cup
Singing one's to lay you gently in the grave
And one's the flag you fold before you go
When the curtain rose the crowd was blown away
While the lion and the lamb kept fucking in the back row
