A F Put a snake on my neck and a bird on my arm. F F Got one good leg Ôcause the other went South. A F F Got a brand new crutch and a brand new mouth. 0:45 - 1:25 F F I got a sheriff's name branded where I should have kept clean. A F If you get too close you're going to know what I mean. F F And I know when I'm old the only runnin' gonna come. A F F Away from lips and the fork of my tongue. 1:26 - 1:45 G F It only gets to me in times like these. A F F And times like these are getting to me. 1:46 - 2:24 F F Put your hand in the oven there's a heaven inside. A F It burns straight through but the devil don't mind. F F Because he takes what he wants and he finds what you hide. A F F And it will buy you a place on the Lower East Side. Child 2:25 - 3:04 F F I rolled a number last night and I walked in my sleep. A F I could feel all the nerves in the tips of my teeth. F F As they crumbled into dust and washed into the sea. A F F Finally shut my mouth so I could hear myself think. 3:05 - 3:32 G F It only gets to me in times like these. G F It only gets to me in times like these. G F It only gets to me in times like these. A F And times like these are getting to me. 3:33 - end F F F F F F A F F (c)1998 Seven Mary Three Music, BMI. All rights reserved.
