The sky's still shiny and the earth's still brown
E                  F#m
Tell the judge I'm ready for the vases
B                                    A      E
Gonna' dance in their faces when the guitar sounds

E          F#m  G#m    E
Snake eyes cry, boxcar sigh
A                              F#m       E
Oh, seven's in the middle just wondering why
E              F#m     G#m         E
