[Intro]
Em   C    D    C  (x2)

[Verse 1]
          G                        D
She's a bone white flaming haired, Goth of a girl
           G                        D
Who breaks out into freckles in the sun
        Em                       C
And the earth underneath her bed quakes when she comes
        G                          D    Dsus D
And she melts like butter when she done

[Verse 2]
    G                             D
She clings with her knees, as she pleads for my tongue
        G                           D
But she can't bare the sight of the sun
                   Em
She claims there's places out west
                 C
where they still live by the gun
    G                            D
She screams like a lynx when she comes

[CHORUS]
    Em                       Dsus2
She melts like butter in the flo-ri-da sun
Em                    Dsus2
In-be-tween my fingers she runs
        G                B
Beggin', "Please take me with you",
         C           Am
we could live by the gun
           Em
Just don't leave me alone here
   Dsus2                   Em   C   D   C
to melt like butter in the sun

[Verse 3]
         G                          D
She's an last soul I know who still goes for cocaine
G                      D
Flys until sunrise and crashes all day
        Em                   C
With no visible signs of remorce or decay
         G                        D
She must know I'm too old to keep goin' this way

[CHORUS 2]
    Em                       Dsus2
She melts like butter in the flo-ri-da sun
Em                    Dsus2
In-be-tween my fingers she runs
        G               B
Beggin', "Please take me with you",
         C           Am
we could live by the gun
           Em
Just don't leave me alone here
   Dsus2                   C     C
to melt like butter in the sun

[Interlude]
Em   C   D   C  (x4) |  C

[Verse 4]
      G                         D
I was born in the morning, in a room filled with light
       G                             D
And despite all the things I've done wrong
       Em                       C
I'm at home in the sun; I come alive in the light
         G                      D
When she rises tonight, I'll be gone
          G                         Dsus2     Dsus2
(When she comes to tonight, I'll be long gone)

[CHORUS 2]
        Em                       Dsus
And she melts like butter in the flo-ri-da sun
Em                     Dsus
In-be-tween my fingers she runs
     G              B                C           Am
No I can't take her with me, I can't live by the gun
         Em
So I'll, leave her alone here
   Dsus2                   C
to melt like butter in the sun

[Outro]
        Em                         D
I'll be haunted from now on by the cries
                 C
of a lynx when I come
C              Em     C                 D    C
Somewhere far away      in the darkest hour
              Em              C
I'll hear her calling my name
          D        C
And I-I'll  kn-o-w,
        Em    C    D     C
And I-I-I-I-I'll           know,

Em   C    D    C
