[Verse]
G                      Em             Bm             G
  Regaining her composure, she made a break for the door,
                           Em                 Bm        G
She couldn't bare to stare into his cold dead eyes any more,
                    Em                      Bm                G
With every step she took, the room turned a deeper shade of gray,
                            Em                        Bm      G
By the time she'd dried her tears, all the colour had faded away.

G Em Bmx2

G                  Em                Bm                G
 The day the mine closed was the day things started to change,
                         Em             Bm         G
What little money he had left funded an alcoholic rage,
                          Em              Bm     G
To the extent that he was barely the same man anymore,
                       Em              Bm           G
Tobacco papers, broken glass and empty cans on the floor,

G Em Bm x2

G                        Em             Bm            G
 Six months of booze and beatings drove to react that way,
                         Em                 Bm         G
She'd never hurt a fly before that cold wet November's day,
                  Em                         Bm               G
She hid under the stairs and waited till the time she thought best,
                              Em                            Bm               G
She took a knife and drove it through his back with all the strength she had left,

G Em Bm x2

G                     Em           Bm            G
 She sat and thought about the situation she was in,
                          Em             Bm           G
She was a murderer and an orphan and her only next of kin,
                      Em            Bm       G
Was a grandfather who lived so many miles away,
                        Em      Bm      G
At a loss for things to do she began to pray,


[Bridge] (power chords)
B        C                   E        A
"Father, help me. I couldn't stand it anymore,
     B        C           E                A
I am 15, and alone, and behind that wooden door,
         B           C                      E           A
Lies the body of the person who has made my life a misery,
         B                 C              D(hold)
I need a plan, I need a solution, set me free"


And it came to her, she thought (muted):

G      Em       C     G                Em      C         G
 I can hide the body underneath the shed where they won't find him
Em   C         G
 No they won't find him
G      Em       C     G                Em      C         G
 I can hide the body underneath the shed where they won't find him
Em   C         G
 No they won't find him


[Outro]

(unmute): Em C

G      Em       C     G                Em      C         G
 I can hide the body underneath the shed where they won't find him
Em   C         G
 No they won't find him
G      Em       C     G                Em      C         G
 I can hide the body underneath the shed where they won't find him
Em   C         G        Em C 
 No they won't find him
G       Em      C    G                 Em      C     G        Em            C    G        Em C
 So she hid his body underneath the shed, they never found him, they're not even looking.
G              Em         C      G                          Em          C       G
 She took the next train out of town and moved in with her grandad, she never told him.
Em    C    G
  He never asked.


The riff changes to this at the end:
