Difficulty
Capo
novice
1st fret
TABBED BY: Musial_Musician

Comment:  This song is from Mike Doughty's album Smofe + Smang Live In Mpls.  This is a 
album, but all the music is played by an acoustic guitar with no drums or bass.  This 
is not for the slightly more electronic normal version.

Capo on 1st fret, all chords in relation to capo.

Power chords recommended

C
Sunken-eyed girl in the sandwich shop
F
Ladle my soup from the kettle pot, so
C
Swooning my self with the smolder looks
F
Parsing that gaze for the right intention.
A                        G
Sunken-eyed girl don't let me go
F
You're the whole world and you barely know so.

C
You are the drinks I drink and keep drinking
Bb                 F
And fall down stumble
C
All of the things I think and keep thinking
Bb                F
And wake up tremble
Ab
All
Bb
These tears are bound to fall.

C
Sunken-eyed girl on the Ludlow Street
F
Chunky land once but they swept it up, so
C
Sing'in my mind signing you're so sweet
F
I need a bundle of dop just to numb it out
A                                       G
'Cause I'm feeling so good that it hurts my skin
F
Feeling so good I could do myself in

C
You are the drinks I drink and keep drinking and
Bb          F
Wake up tremble
C
All of the blinks I blink and keep blinking and
Bb            F
Fall down stumble
Ab
All
Bb
These tears are bound to fall.

C                         F
I'm
     C                    F Ab
No Prize for you
C                        F
No trophy too
C                                F  Ab
Keep walking through
C                 F
And I'm
C                           F Ab
Not worth a dime
C                    F
I'll drag you down
C                     F              Ab
Don't waste your time

*3rd Verse*

C
Sunken-eyed girl on Delancy Street
F
Bulletproof glass in the KFC
C
So, keep the man safe in his paper hat
F
Keep the wrong hands off the biscut fortune
A                          G
Sunken-eyed girl don't let me go
F
You're the whole world and ya'  barely know so

IMHO - I think the A should be an Am,and the G should be G6add11.
Example:
Am G6add11
Sunken-eyed girl don't let me go

Am - x02210
G6add11 - 320010
