[Verse 1]

You really only need to be playing the D, G, B and e strings in the verses.

   D     G        D     G
My candy shop's a factory
     D       A       D
left in the woods to die
  D                  Bm
Beneath this settled dust
          D        A        D
a fertile field of treasure lies.
       Bm              G
We the scavengers are hunting
        Bm        G
for the beautiful decay,

[The little bass line at "we the scavengers...", ignore the G over "hunting" if using
this and just keep the Bm chord shape]

A|-2-----0-2-----|
E|---2-3-----2-3-|

[Chorus]
            D             G
towards the bottom of the barrel,
       D              A
at the market for the fleas,
      G                Bm
stale boxcars on their railroads
    G    A      Em
won over by the weeds.
         D                G
Raid the scrapyard like a garden,
      D               A
wring life from rusty bones.
   G               Bm
My candy shop is a vacant lot
      G   A        D
where anything may grow.
                                                           [Strumming]

[Verse 2]

D       G           D         G
Weeping clowns with cracklin' brows
      D      A   D
piled in the old arcade.
        D                Bm
Now the children are all workers,
      D        A     D
still dreaming about play.
          Bm                       G
While the freaks stomp through the wasteland
        Bm               G
pulling flowers from the graves.

[Chorus]

            D             G
towards the bottom of the barrel,
       D              A
at the market for the fleas,
      G                Bm
stale boxcars on their railroads
    G    A      Em
won over by the weeds.
         D                G
Raid the scrapyard like a garden,
      D               A
wring life from rusty bones.
   G               Bm
My candy shop is a vacant lot
      G   A        D
where anything may grow.

[Verse 3]

       D           G
Like a vessel underwater,
    D                A
old mills and broken glass.
       G              Bm
Like a pick-up in the backyard,
     G       A           Em
tree winding through the cab.

     Bm                G
This takes me down the backroads,
         Bm             G
from the mansion to the shack.

[Chorus]

         D             G
From the bottom of the barrel,
       D                 A
here's something someone saved,
       G               Bm
and we bring it to the table,
       G          A     Em
wonder what we're gonna make.
     D             G
Your scrapyard, my garden,
   D             A
or so the saying goes.
         G          Bm
You turn water into dead things
         G        A           D
and I'll make the dead things grow
G        A           D
Make the dead things grow
G        A           Em
Make the dead things grow
