The Unstoppable Johnny Appleseedís Last Immaculate Confession
As (A)far as stories go, mine is the (Em)best one that I (D)know,
Though itís the (F#m)only one I really know Ė so, well, (E)you knowÖ
And yet as (D)time goes on and on, slips left or (F#m)right side up or down
I fear I (E)feel even my own ink quickly (D)draining
Out with it (E)then! Before my pen is sucked in (D)old age white and thin
I scrawl for (F#m)sins and salva(E)tions, reflections (D)fading
And though itís (E)so hard to detail it is quite (D)simple to sum it:
(Bm)I went to bed brass and I (D)woke up a trumpet.
[hold, still] And Iím playing (A)God now, tumbling dice
Iím thinking (D)once, not (A)twice
Iím thinking (D)big, not (A)nice, nece(E)ssarily.
Iíve got a (D)plan, but itís my (A)own.
Iím sick of (D)death and flesh and (A)bone.
Iím thinking (D)all you people, (A)all of you, are just (E)scaring me.
So here I (D)go, I boot the (F#m)road,
I smash the (D)gravel under (F#m)toe
I turn the (D)moon around and (F#m)show the sun a (E)thing or two
Iím dodging (D)God, Iím made to (E)move,
A hungry (D)hound dogís twitching (A)tooth,
Iím rear(D)ranging battle (A)maps they drew at (E)Waterloo!
I am no (D)Fatherís fool
Claim (E)no vessel nor tool
At best mu(D)tinyís crew
Itself a (E)jab at Zeus
What was I (F#m)telling you?...
What was I (D)telling you?...
What was I (E)telling you?...
[instrumental on E drone?]
ÖAh, yes! So (A)waking as a yawp, my bonnet (Em)beeíd, shook soda (D)popped,
blinking a(F#m)round about the kingdom in whose (E)reign Iíd been dropped off
I coughed and (D)sputtered to a start, turned twice the (F#m)crank nailed to my heart
I felt I (E)feared birdsí dream of clouds go sickly (D)bleeding
Shakedustoff, (E)wings! These prisonersí rings, encrusted (D)diamond death of (E)things
Fly, sing, pro(F#m)mote notes towards the (E)throats of landlords (D)deedingÖCause:
As its (E)whipping accomplicewind stretchedgrowing (D)skin strengthened and stiffened,
I saw the (Bm)sun is not chicken, itís in(D)different
so Iím pitting (A)God against these eyesÖ
Iím thinking (D)heavenís not so (A)high
And mighty, (D)thinking flight, not (A)fight, but are you (E)feeling me?
All these de(D)sires fester un(A)told.
mad masterís (D)piece weíd pluck to (A)mold
Iím thinking (D)this is me, and (A)that is me, but what is (E)really me?
So sound the (D)bells, and fig the (F#m)trees,
My breath is (D)bigger than the (F#m)breeze
I wrap the (D)wind into a (F#m)seed and sow it (E)deep in, too
Iím mocking (D)God a mimic(E)king,
I care no (D)more for her or (A)him
Tecumseh, (D)time to wind that (A)train back to Tip(E)pecanoe!
Head beaten (D)red and blue
Come killing (E)two by two
They put the (D)fear in you
Thereís nothing (E)left to prove
They tried to (F#m)take our birth
If lost, re(E)turn to earth.
If lost, re(D)turn to earth.
If lost, re(A, let ring)turn-títhee-earth.
