           Gaug  Abm           
He made an enemy then
           B        E          E
he made an enemy of all of you
     F#m B        E   Abm 
It's him, not you
          Gaug          Abm
You never heard it from me
         B             E6         E   
But there's a breech in the hull where the truth
    F#          B       F#    F#
And the water's too deep to prove
           Gaug  Abm
He made an enemy then
           B        E          E
He made an enemy of all of you
     F#m B        E   Abm 
It's him, not you
       Gaug       Abm
It's a little red sea
   B       E6        E
Let the miracle worker go free
        F#        B          F#        E
See the paddle go up and the paddle go down
        F#        B          F#        E
See the paddle go up and the paddle go down
        F#        B          F#        E
See the paddle go up and the paddle go down
      F#         F#
And a man falls in the sea

Eb         Abm         E
  He was a man of many nations
      Eb      Abm                       E  Eb
Had a hundred souls and a hundred to go
         Abm         E
He was a man of many nations
    Eb          Abm                          E   Eb   
Two hearts, two hands, it's a slippery slope
         Abm           E
He had a fear of being naked
           Eb        Abm                          E  Eb
But you're any other man in another man's clothes
         Abm         E
He was a man of many nations
     Eb         Abm              E  Eb
With revelations, oh revelations
      Abm            E     
He wrote a book about the Bible
Eb         Abm                       E  Eb
He wrote a book about men in the sky
           Abm            E                            Eb
He wrote a book about the smell of the winter and then two...
  Abm                   E       
A little less simple to decipher
      Eb         Abm          E         
Saying "I am the water at the foot of the palms,
   Eb       Abm                  E     
Or I am sand and wind, and a shitty mirage,
           Eb         Abm        E
But either way, I'm a man of many nations!"


      B     
Was it the mending of the gown,
       F#       
Or the running it around?
           Eb               
Was it the mending of the gown,
       F#
Or the running and the running it around?


     D         G
She had a name, she had a spirit

          A                       G
She had a line in the play if you waited to hear it
      D         G
But a master of disguises...
    A              G
Her demise was her design, they said
            D              G
"Was it the mending of the gown
       A                               G
or the running and the running and the running it around?"
              D                      G
She said: "My name and my spirit are both corrupted
       A                       G
If you hold me close you gotta hold me up!
           D              G               A
It was the tender meaning of this slender gown

           G          D
That brought me bending to the ground
      G        A            G
Now you'll wear any old thing, oh you'll wear any old thing"
       D                  G
So she wrapped herself in swaddling
    A                   G
That the fever deviated to a broken wing
         D             G
"It's an act, I think she's just pretending"
    A          G
"It's an act, I think she's just pretending"
      D               G
And I will burn the virgin flags
      A         G         D
And I will shake (shake) as the heat waves in the sand
          G            A
This one's for Maggie (This one's for Maggie)
          G         D
This one's for Sam (This one's for Sam)
          G            A
This one's for Maggie (This one's for Maggie)
          G         D
This one's for Sam (This one's for Sam)
       G            A            G
Or any other random spirit lover busted
       D            G    A  G
I have lusted after you
             D          G
The way bloodsuckers do
             A          G
The way bloodsuckers do
        A     E  F  F#  G
The way bloodsuckers do
      D
Was it the mending of the gown,

Or the running it around?

That brought me bending to the ground
        Bm      D         G
But this ship was built to go down
   A     D        A         G
See the paddle go up and the paddle go down
   A     D        A         G
See the paddle go up and the paddle go down
   A     D        A         G
