If Venice is Sinking
By: Spirit of the West

Verse 1:

Jesus hangs behind the glass
Above venetian doors
G                             Am                    G     C
His window box boasts crimson flowers fresh cut the day before

And you couldn't find a smile
If you nailed it to his face
G                Am                  G
But Jesus Christ hangs his head with grace

And if Venice is sinking
I'm going under
'Cause beauty's religion
        Am                 G      C - F - G - Am - G - C
And its Christened me with wonder

Verse 2:

They come in bent-backed
Creeping 'cross the floor all dressed in black
Candles, thick as pillars, you can buy one off the floor

And the ceiling's painted gold
Mary's hair is red
The old come here to kiss their dead



F - G - F - Am - G - C

Verse 3:

We made love on a bed
That sagged down to the floor
In a room that had a postcard on the door

Of Mirini's (sp?) Little Man
With an erection on a horse
It always leaves me laughing, leaves me feeling that, of course if

Yesterday, I submitted the chords for "If Venice is Sinking" by
Spirit of the West.  I noticed, after sending it out, that the
chords in the chorus are wrong.  The chorus should be:

And if Venice is sinking
C         G
I'm going under
'Cause beauty's religion
         C                  G       (C - F - G - Am - G)
And it's Christened me with wonder
