Sounds better barred but it's not vital.

Intro:
D  A  G   D  A  G

Bm             G          Bm      
Rob lived in a box by the rails
               G               Bm
Only think he knew's you don't fail
                 G          A
if you live in a box by the rails
                                     D
dont' comb your hair don't comb your tails

Chorus:
D
Sweep my mess away,
D
Leave my body, leave my bones
D
Leave my hold and leave my soul
         G               Bm
Leave me nothing i don't need at all,
G               D
Nothing i don't need at all

D  A  G

Bm              G           Bm
He ate from the bins in the park
                    G          Bm
Stayed out with the rats after dark
             G                     A
Never left a trail, never made his mark
                                D
When he ate with the rats after dark

Chorus

Bm               G                      Bm
Calling all his friends, never made him sad
             G               Bm
With all the things he never had
        G                 A
It only made them feel so bad
                               D
For having the things he never had

Chorus

Bm                  G       Bm
If you stay in that box overnight
          G                 Bm
Don't get out 'till it gets light
                 G                  A
There's not much lost of the secret life
                                          Bm
It's never gone wrong and it's never gone right
         G            Bm
Now some more flowers grow
                  G                   Bm
And the palm gets eaten by a few more throws
             G              A
An old man's box is full of bones
        G                 D   
See his footprints in the snow

Chorus X2

outro: D  A  G   D   A   G  D  A  G  D  A  G
D
