Intro D5 Asus4 G x2  (when on the G he hammers on the a string from 0 to 2)

   Bm             G7
Rob lived in a box by the rails
   Bm              G7
Only thing he knew, you don't fail
   Bm                G7
When you live in a box by the rails
    Asus4        G                     D5   (here on the D5 he hammers from 0
Don't comb your hair, don't comb your tail   to 3 on the a string and
                                             continues to do this through the

D5
Sweep my mess away

Leave my body, leave my bones

Leave me whole and leave my soul
  G                      Bm
Leave me nothing, I don't need at all
   G                  D5
Nothing, I don't need at all

Intro chords

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

Sweep my mess away
Leave my body, leave my bones
Leave me whole and leave my soul
Leave me nothing, I don't need at all
Nothing, I don't need at all

Intro chords

Calling on his friends, never made him sad
Didn't want the things he never had
It only made them feel so bad
For having the things he never had

Sweep my mess away
Leave my body, leave my bones
Leave me whole and leave my soul
Leave me nothing, I don't need at all
Nothing, I don't need at all

Intro Chords

If you stay in that box overnight
And don't get out when it gets light
There's not much lost of the secret life
That's done wrong and it's never done right
Now some more flowers grow
The corn gets eaten by a few more crows
And an old man's box is full of bones
Won't see his footprints in the snow

Sweep my mess away
Leave my body, leave my bones
Leave me whole and leave my soul
Leave me nothing, I don't need at all
Nothing, I don't need at all

Sweep my mess away
Leave my body, leave my bones
Leave me whole and leave my soul
Leave me nothing, I don't need at all
Nothing, I don't need at all

Repeat intro chords D5 Asus4 G  (At the end while playing D5 he plays
                                 the frets 0 2 4 2 on the high e string)

End on D5
