Verse 1:
Am
Virginia was a lot lizard from F.L.A.
				   E
She had a compound fracture in the trunk
   Am
It started when she ran away
Dm                F
Thumbs out on the interstate
    E                      Am
She hitched a ride to misery

Mr. Whirly had a catastrophic incident
			     E
He fell into the city by the bay
   Am
He liquidated his estate
Dm                     F
Now he sleeps upon the Haight
E                Am
Panhandling misery

Chorus:
                   E
And he's gonna get high high high
          Am
When he's low low low
    E                      Am
The fire burns from better days
                E
And she screams why oh why
       Am
I said I don't know
     Dm          F          E
The catastrophic hymns from yesterday
           Am
Of misery

Verse 2:
Vinnie was a hustler out of Amsterdam
He ran the drug cartel in Tinsel town
They found him in a cadillac
Bludgeoned with a baseball bat in the name
Of misery
Gina hit the road to New York City
Mysteriously the night Vinnie croaked
She stopped in Vegas to elope
With Virginia and the dope
And kissed the bride eternally

Chorus:
And they're gonna get high high high
When they're low low low
The fire burns from better days
And she screams why oh why
I said I don't know
The catastrophic hymns from yesterday
Of misery

F                   E               Am
Hell hounds on your trail now once again boy
F                   E               Am
It's groping on your leg until it sleeps
F                   E               Am
The emptiness will fill your soul with sorrow
F                                           E
'Cause it's not what you make it's what you leave

Mandolin and guitar solo - just play the same chords over the top!

                   E
And we're gonna get high high high
          Am
When we're low low low
    E                      Am
The fire burns from better days
                E
And she screams why oh why
       Am
I said I don't know
     Dm          F          E(don't damp)
The catastrophic hymns from yesterday
           Am
Of misery

End on Am

That's all folks!
