Stephen Lynch - Lullaby (The Divorce Song)
Transcribed by Vincent Driessen, 2004

Standard tuning
Capo 2nd fret

[Verse riff]

[Verse 1] (verse riff)
Hush, little girl
Sweet baby don't cry, tonight
Daddy is here and he'll sing you a soft lullaby, tonight

Am           C              G     D
Why can't it all be like it was before?
Am           C                    G        D
How can I explain why mommy's not here, anymore?

       G           D         Em         C
'Cause daddy likes porno and ten-dollar whores
G          D          Em          C
Daddy gets wasted and robs liquor stores 
G           D        Em            C           G   D
Daddy likes rubbing against little boys on the bus 
        Em         C          G  D  Em
I think that's why mommy left us
C          G  D  D
Mommy left us

[Verse 2] (verse riff)
Hush, little girl 
There is no reason to fret, tonight 
Don't mind the smoke, daddy just wants to forget, tonight

Am           C              G     D
Soon it will all be like it was before 
Am  C                     G                  D     D
Any minute, she will walk through that front door 

    G           D         Em             C
But daddy plays poker and drinks lots of beer 
G             D          Em             C
Then he wants sex that involves mommy's rear
G         D            Em            C           G    D
Daddy has sores on his naughty parts oozing with pus
        Em         C          G   D  G  D
I think that's why mommy left us 

C            D
Please don't cry
  C          D
I swear I'll try
   C       Am      D
To be here by your side 

[Verse 3]
G           D          Em            C
Right after daddy gets home from the bar 
G          D          Em           C
Visits his bookee and steals a new car 
      G            D              Em       C               G      D
He'll drive to the strip club and if daddy plays his cards right 
            Em            C       G
He'll bring home your new mommy tonight

D  Em  C  G  D  Em  C  G  D  Em  C  G
Lah dee die... etc.

Good good good. But you should retranscribe the intro so that the notes are relative to the capo. So it'd be:
D-------------- etc...

Thanks for this! Ditto on the relative to capo. Nice that it fits on one page. Not sure why, but then printing any tab on this site it comes out on the printer so light I can't read it. Have to copy to a .TXT and then print.
