Reverend Glasseye and His Wooden Legs - God Help You Dumb Boy
From the album "Our Lady of the Broken Spine"

Am      
Dumb boy, what do you say?
    F                 Am
My eyes are lazy, my skin's a flake
Am
But what good can you do?
       F              Am
Well, not so much as men like you
Am
Dumb boy, what do you see?
     E                 Am
The lesser men coming down on me
Am
Tell us, what will you do?
     Dm               Am
I'll let my axe come down on you!

E
  Here by the water, I'll raise my kingdom
G
  I'll find my foliage
F
  I'll raise my arms and
E
  I'll say my name with, with 'glory be's' and
E
  Here by the water! I'll raise my temple
G                    F              E
  Where no man shall be as small as me!

       E                            Dm            E
But I can't load the bullets and I can't use the gun
                             Dm           E
Can't have no children so I won't have a son
                         Dm          E
Can't wake up early so nothing will grow
                                    Dm        E
I'll just lay on my lands 'til the sun hangs low,
          Dm        E
'Til the sun hangs low!
      Dm                                 E
I'll lay on my lands 'til the sun hangs low!

Am     
Dumb boy, you've done wrong
        F                 Am
Now by what right do you good men judge?
Am
You are in the contempt of man
      F                Am
Then gag my mouth and bind my hands!
Am
Dumb boy, what are you seeing?
          E                         Am
Ha, your guns they are empty, your rope it is frayed!
Am
Tell us, what did you say?
          Dm            Am
In your empty chest, my axe I will lay!

E
  Here by the water, I'll raise my kingdom
G
  I'll find my foliage
F
  I'll raise my arms and
E
  I'll say my name with, with 'glory be's' and
E
  Here by the water! I'll raise my temple
G                    F              E
  Where no man shall be as small as me!

       E                            Dm            E
But I can't load the bullets and I can't use the gun
                             Dm           E
Can't have no children so I won't have a son
                         Dm          E
Can't wake up early so nothing will grow
                                    Dm        E
I'll just lay on my lands 'til the sun hangs low,
          Dm        E
'Til the sun hangs low!
      Dm                                 E
I'll lay on my lands 'til the sun hangs low!

E      

E         E                            E
Speak and follow, your words are hollow
G      E             G
Your steps are heavy, 
      E       E
you will not save me
E           E                      E   
Speak and follow, your words are hollow
       E           
Your steps are heavy, 
      E       
you will not save me!
