     F         
Levon wears his war wound like a crown.  He calls his child Jesus
C/E                           Dm               Am                      Bb 
               Gm7
     cause he likes the name and he sends him to the finest school in
town.

Levon, Levon likes his money.  He makes a lot they say
Spends his days counting in a garage by the motorway.

Am                   Dm                           Bb

Levon.

Levon sells cartoon ballons in town.  His fam'ly bus'ness thrives.
Jesus blows up balloons all day.  Sits on the porch swing watching them
fly. And
Jesus, he wants to go to Venus.  Leave Levon far behind.  Take a balloon
and go sailing, while Levon, Levon slowly dies...


Hope this helps, apologies if the chords are placed only approximately
where the changes really are.  Chords courtesy of a very-long defunct
magazine from 23 years ago (i.e. "don't blame me!").  Thanks to everyone
who has posted chords and TAB in the past- this is a great forum.
