                       THESE APPLES - Barenaked Ladies

Standard Tuning

Intro:
G  A7  G  A7
G  A7  G  A7

Verse 1:
  G                 A7           G              A7
A friend brought me flowers, she said they were lilacs,
     G          A7                G  A7
I've never been good with plants
    G          A7        G         A7
Her next presentation, a new dictionary
    G           A7              A7sus4
She circled the word "romance"
   G      A7       G          A7
So enthusiastic, a little bit drastic,
  G               A7          G  A7
I shaved her name in my head.
G        A7           G         A7
As she beheld it, she said I misspelled it;
G    A7
Need more be said?

Chorus:
Bm7       A7            G       G  G/F#  Em7
    These apples are delicious!
          A7                    N.C.
    "As a matter of fact they are," she said
Bm7      A7                 C
    Can all this fruit be free? 

Interlude:
G  A7  G  A7
G  A7  G  A7

Verse 2:
    G          A7        G        A7
She wrote me a letter as big as a phone book
     G          A7          G  A7
I've never been big on mail
  G          A7            G              A7
I sent her a postcard from somewhere near Lethbridge,
    G              A7                 A7-3  A7sus4  A7
And wondered if it still went by rail 
     G          A7            G       A7
I've never been frightened of being enlightened
    G           A7              G  A7
But some things can go too far
       G             A7        G         A7
Though sometimes I stammer and mix up my grammar,
    G           A7
You get what my meanings are 

Chorus:
Bm7       A7            G       G  G/F#  Em7
    These apples are delicious!
          A7                    N.C.
    "As a matter of fact they are," she said
Bm7      A7                 C
    Can all this fruit be free? 

Interlude:
G  A7  G  A7

Bridge:
D/F#          G                A7                     Bm7
    I'm not trying to sing a love song, I'm trying to sing in tune
D/F#       G                        A7   G  A7
    I know I am sometimes headstrong
D/F#         G                A7              Bm7
    Falling in love, catching fire, I want to be consumed
D/F#          G                  A7       G      A7
    Wondering will I ever tire,      will I ever tire?
    G  A7         G      A7
             Will I ever tire?

Instrumental Break:
A7  A7sus4add13  A7(3) A7  x4

Chorus:
Bm7       A7            G       G  G/F#  Em7
    These apples are delicious!
          A7                    N.C.
    "As a matter of fact they are," she said
Bm7      A7                 C
    Can all this fruit be free?

A7  A7sus4  A7-3 A7  (6x)
