Capo 1

[Intro]
Am F C E

[Verse]
Am                           F
I haven't met a locked door yet
                C
that I couldn't beat
                     E
on a chain around my neck
          E7
I keep my skeleton key


[Chorus]
Am 
Don't waste your worry on me
F
I always find what I need
C                          
come and go as I please
E
I've got my skeleton key 
Am 
Don't waste your worry on me
F
I always find what I need
D
come and go as I please
F
I've got my skeleton key 


[Verse]
Am                        F
By now it's just a simple trick
             C
not much to see
                                E    E7
you hear the tumblers catch and click
              Am
then turn the key
                        F                       D
but I've found work and welcome everywhere I've been
                     F
cause everyone's got someplace they wanna be let in


[Chorus]

Am                F                              C
Along the way the old men call me by my mother's name
               E
she looked the same they say
Am                   F                                  D
the children wave or hide behind their mothers' skirts, afraid
               F
strangers here still seem strange


[Verse]
Am
they hear the accent
F
know I'm from nowhere near
C
but I speak the language
E              E7
and I know the customs here


[Verse]
Am                     F
I come from over the horizon
                         D
pass through every dozen years
                    F
go home, tell of my arrival
    E                  
the skeleton key's here


[Chorus]

Am              F                     C       E   
I've got my, my skeleton, my skeleton key
Am                          F                     D     
I've got my, got my, got my skeleton, my skeleton key
Am
Yeah


[Chorus]
 
Am           F              C        E
don't you go waste all your worry on me
      Am           F           D        F         Am
cause I'll make my way with my skeleton key
