THE CARPET CRAWLERS
SELLING ENGLAND BY THE POUND



------------------------------------------------------------------------
STANDARD TUNING - NO CAPO


VERSE 1:
     D                 Em                     D
The crawlers cover the floor in the red ochre corridor.
                       Em                                    D
For my second sight of people, they’ve more lifeblood than before.
                  Em                      D
They’re moving in time to a heavy wooden door,
                          Em
Where the needle’s eye is winking, closing in on the poor.


CHORUS 1:
F#m                                     A
The carpet crawlers heed their callers:
                           G      A
We’ve got to get in to get out
                           G      D
We’ve got to get in to get out
                   C      G  D
We’ve got to get in to get out.


VERSE 2:
                  Em                           D
There’s only one direction in the faces that I see;
                    Em                                  D
It’s upward to the ceiling, where the chamber’s said to be.
                          Em                                  D
Like the forest fight for sunlight, that takes root in every tree.
                          Em                        
They are pulled up by the magnet, believing they’re free.


CHORUS 2:
F#m                                     A
The carpet crawlers heed their callers:
                           G      A
We’ve got to get in to get out
                           G      D
We’ve got to get in to get out
                   C      G  D
We’ve got to get in to get out.


VERSE 3:
                           Em
Mild mannered supermen are held in kryptonite,
        D                                           Em
And the wise and foolish virgins giggle with their bodies glowing bright.
D                                  Em
Through a door a harvest feast is lit by candlelight;
         D                          Em
It’s the bottom of a staircase that spirals out of sight.


CHORUS 3:
F#m                                     A
The carpet crawlers heed their callers:
                           G      A
We’ve got to get in to get out
                           G      D
We’ve got to get in to get out
                   C      G  D
We’ve got to get in to get out.


VERSE 4:
                            Em
The porcelain mannikin with shattered skin fears attack.
    D                                 Em
The eager pack lift up their pitchers - they carry all they lack.
     D                               Em
The liquid has congealed, which has seeped out through the crack,
        D                   Em
And the tickler takes his stickleback.


CHORUS 4:
F#m                                     A
The carpet crawlers heed their callers:
                           G      A
We’ve got to get in to get out
                           G      D
We’ve got to get in to get out
                   C      G  D
We’ve got to get in to get out.


OUTRO:
C - Dm    x4


FADING CHORUS:
F#m                                     A
The carpet crawlers heed their callers:
                           G      A
We’ve got to get in to get out
                           G      D
We’ve got to get in to get out
                   C      G  D
We’ve got to get in to get out........................

The outro in the first version has to be D-Em, not C-Dm (you obviously took that from the capoed second version). Other than that: Thanks for the great chords! :-)
