Album: Armchair Apocrypha (Fat Possum, 2007)
Standard Tuning


Intro: Am F (x2) G

C
  When our mouths are filled 
     F
with uninvited tongues of others
C
  And the strays are pining 
F
for their unrequited mothers
C                             G
  Milk that sours is promptly spat
                      Am              F
Light will fill our eyes like cats

C                                          F
  And they shall enter from the back
                                       C
With spears and scepters and squirming sacks
                                 G
Scribs and tangles between their ears
                             Am
Faceless scrumbled charcoal smears
      F        (C)
...oh dear...

Through the coppice and the chaparral
The thickets thick with mold
The bracken and the brier
                    Am    F   Am   F
Catchweed into the fold

(whistle solo)
C F C F C G Am F

C
  When our mouths are filled 
     F
with uninvited tongues of others
C
  And the strays are pining 
F
for their unrequited mothers
C                             G
  Milk that sours is promptly spat
                             Am  
Light will fill our eyes like ...cats
F                           Am
   Light will fill our eyes like cats
F      Am      F    Am    F    G    C
