Am E Am
         Am
cattail down,
             E                  Am     E
the morning rail yard whistle blows.
         Am
cattail down,
            E                   Am     E
our boxcar bound for... no one knows.
       Dm
after every hidden seed out
         G             
from it covering has been freed,
           C                B               Am
when every book has been discarded from the bookshelf.
         F
cattail down,
            E                 Am E Am E
and the forgetting of myself.


         Am
cattail down,
          E                 Am      E
replace the feathers in our vest.
         Am
cattail down,
              E
surround the ivy
               Am            E
that's gone to poison in my chest.
      Dm               
"the parachutes broke loose,"
            G              
cried the goose with misplaced
            C       B
but understandable concern
           Am              
for his little brother's mental health.
      F
his happy little brother,
           E                  Am E Am E
in the forgetting of himself.

Am E (x4)
Dm G C B Am F E
Am E (x2)

         Am
cattail down,
           E                    Am    E
around the bulrush, the pollen shed.
          Am
cattail down,
             E
to dress my wounds,
           Am                 E
it left a bee sting in their stead.


        Dm        
headed east out of st. paul,
     G
we stopped for water.
                C
rested in the cemetery,
 B               Am
watched the mississippi.
               Dm
running out of food stamps,
                      G
found a bag along the footpath
             C   
off highway 61 filled with
       B              Am
what looked like marijuana.
(don't worry mom, we left it there)

          Dm
hopped a grainer out a pig's eye
       G
toward milwaukee, the deer
             C             B
between the tower and the tracks,
             Am
saw right through us.
                                 Dm
said, "you don't know where you came from,
                             G
you don't know where you're going,
                 C
you think you're you-
               B
you don't know who you are,
        Am
you're not you.
you're everyone else."

Dm G C B Am (x6)
you're everyone else.
