[Verse 1]
Em      D              Em
Meet me by the coppice stool,
           D                    Em
Before the night takes back its jewels.
           D            Em
Bring your life of memo-ries,
             D             Em
Be-fore they sink into the seas.


[Chorus 1]
G
Snakes,
C                  Em
Are coming to your town.
   D              C
In tun-nels under-ground,
     D               C
Some travelling over-ground.
D                G
A plague for our mis-takes,
        C                Em
They'll be right next to you.
           D           C
Snakes, up again-st me too,
         D          C
There'll be nothing to do.
D        C       Em
When the rat-tle sha-kes.

[Verse 2]
Em       D                    Em
One more glass and then we're dry,
         D                      Em
Say some words, I'll write them down.
         D              Em
Feel the coup-lets deep inside.


[Chorus 2]
G
Snakes,
C                  Em
Are coming to your town.
   D              C
In tun-nels under-ground,
     D               C
Some travelling over-ground.
D                G
A plague for our mis-takes,
        C                Em
They'll be right next to you.
           D           C
Snakes, up again-st me too,
         D          C
There'll be nothing to do.
D        C       Em
When the rat-tle sha-kes.

NOTES.
1.  “…The Pixies came up with this song in the studio whilst recording EP2. "I'm not a jammer,"
said guitarist Joey Santiago, "but Black Francis and I started jamming it out. I had this little idea
and I did that sliding guitar just to emulate a snake."…”
