Em
Standing in line at the equestrian mart, looks like it’s about to rain
                                                         G        Am           Em
I’ve got two small kids and I’m late on the rent, wife’s dead two weeks to the day
G                      Am               Em    Am G Em Am G Em
Dead two weeks to the, two weeks to the day

    Em
The sun came out but it was cold as hell, my fingers were as numb as my mind
                                                               G           Am       Em
When my quarter horse ‘red’ kicked me in the head, while I was shoeing him up from behind
G               Am                  Em
Shoeing him up, shoeing him up from behind

                             Am
But every now and then I get evil
                                 G
I’m ashamed in the shadow of the steeple
                             B7
I’m a lunatic looking thru a keyhole
                          Em
I hit my kids but I don’t mean to
      G                     Am
I’m a dead dog lying on the sidewalk
                               G
Another victim of the mortgage bubble pop
                      B7            Em Am G Em
Waiting for the other shoe to drop, ah

Em
Melanie lives at the house next down, she’s got a head full of auburn curls
                                                        G               Am    Em
I seen her standing in the mud with her baseball glove, spitting at the other girls
G                Am                    Em      Am G Em
Spitting at the, spitting at the other girls

    Em
Now here she comes in the afternoon with some apples and a pack of reds
                                                 G            Am        Em
She bathes my babies then she reads me to sleep, nothing much ever gets said
G                       Am                     Em
Nothing much ever gets, nothing much ever gets said

                             Am
But every now and then I get evil
                                 G
I’m ashamed in the shadow of the steeple
                             B7
I’m a lunatic looking thru a keyhole
                          Em
I hit my kids but I don’t mean to
      G                     Am
I’m a dead dog lying on the sidewalk
                               G
Another victim of the mortgage bubble pop
                     B7            Em Am G Em
Waiting on the other shoe to drop

Em G Am Em

Em
Cops show up with their lights turned off, judge Jonny from across the street

Had some calls light night ‘bout something didn’t look right
G                    Am               Em
Grab your things you better come with me

    Em
Accusations in a room with a neon light, she said don’t you pay us no mind
                                            G     Am       Em
All we ever shared was a loneliness, he and I was two of a kind
       G             Am           Em
He and I was two of, was two of a kind

                             Am
But every now and then I get evil
                                 G
I’m ashamed in the shadow of the steeple
                             B7
I’m a lunatic looking thru a keyhole
                          Em
I hit my kids but I don’t mean to
      G                     Am
I’m a dead dog lying on the sidewalk
                               G
Another victim of the mortgage bubble pop
                     B7            Em Am G Em
Waiting on the other shoe to drop
