--Verse 1 (0:33):

Am                   C       D         Am  C D
Your six blade knife, do anything for you,
Am       C        D      Am    C D
Uh, anything you want it to.
Am            C        D
One blade, breaking my heart,
Am            C        D
One blade to tear me apart,
Am                   C        D       Am  C D
Your six blade knife, do anything for you.


--Verse 2(1:06):

    Am                         C              D       Am    C D
You take away my mind like you take away the top of a tin,
    Am                          C            D         Am   C D
You come up from behind me, you lay it down cold on my skin.
       Am                  C          D
Took a stone from my soul, when I was lame,
Am                C       D
Just so you could make me tame,
          Am                         C              D       Am  C D
Yeah, you take away my mind like you take away the top of a tin.

Everybody's got a knife, it can be just what you want it to be,
  Am              C                  D          Am    C D
A needle, a wife, something that you just can't see.
     Am               C         D
Your six blade knife, keeps you strong,
Am             C     D
Yes, but it'll do me wrong
     Am               C      D        Am   C D
Your six blade knife, do anything for you.

...Another solo then fade-out.

Enjoy!
