D               C                  D
Levon wears his war wound like a crown.
C                   D
He calls his child Jesus
D                    Em
`Cause he likes the name
       Bm7               C                Am7
And he sends him to the finest school in town

     D      C               D
And Levon, Levon likes his money
C                    D
He makes a lot they say
D               Em
Spend his days counting
      Bm7           C   Am7
In a garage by the motorway

Bm7              Em                  C
He was born a pauper to a pawn on a Christmas day
         D                   Am7                  D
When the New York Times said God is dead and the war's begun
C             D         Am7
Alvin Tostig has a son today

         D       C                       D
And he shall be Levon and he shall be a good man
                 C                            D
And he shall be Levon in tradition with the family plan
                 C                       D
And he shall be Levon and he shall be a good man
C        D    D
He shall be Levon

D            C                  D
Levon sells cartoon balloons in town
C                    D
His family business thrives
D                            Em
Jesus blows up balloons all day
     Bm7                  C           Am7
Sits on the porch swing watching them fly

D              C               D
And Jesus, he wants to go to Venus
C                  D
Leaving Levon far behind
D                     Em
Take a balloon and go sailing
      Bm7      C           Am7
While Levon, Levon slowly dies

It's actually in F but I, and many, can't sing that high. Transpose it if you wish at http://logue.net/xp/
This is way better than that annoying version that is friggin' everywhere. Thanks also
