Caterpillars
From the album Wilderness

[INTRO]

E E7 

C  E7 Am
Oh-oh-oh 

[VERSE 1]

Am            C 
Sylvia was struck by lightning 
       Dm                 F
while reading in bed one night
       Am              C
She'd left the windows open,
          Dm                     F
and the storm caught her by surprise

[VERSE 2]

     Am            C
For days she lay still as stone 
 Dm                  F
hooked to pumps and tubes
     Am                     C
Then out her window, the street lights flashed 
        Dm               F
and at last her fingers moved

[BRIDGE]

      F           E
She awoke to a cacophony 
     F                 E
of electric and radio waves
 F              E
Pulsing rays of energy 
 F                   E  E7
falling from outer space

[INTERLUDE]

C  E7 Am
Oh-oh-oh 

[VERSE 3]

 Am              C
High in swaying towers, 
         Dm                F
down in basements full of dust
          Am               C
She could not escape the static
        Dm          F
or the sixty cycle hum

[VERSE 4]

          Am           C
She wore dark-tinted spectacles
 Dm                F
several fur-lined capes
  Am            C
Three pairs of velvet gloves
   Dm              F    
a veil of dotted swiss

[BRIDGE]

     F                  E
But all the Earth's vibrations 
       F                   E
still pounded through her ears
        F                 E
So she packed a steamer trunk
             F              E  E7
and flew a prop plane to Belize

[INTERLUDE]

C  E7 Am
Oh-oh-oh 

[VERSE 5]

       Am              C
From there a log raft took her 
      Dm          F
over raging waterfalls
         Am            C
Deep within uncharted jungle 
        Dm                 F
where giant caterpillars crawl

[VERSE 6]

      Am               C
They spun their silk around her
     Dm                F
a cocoon beneath the trees
      Am                    C
And still she hangs there swaying
         Dm                F
deep within the dripping leaves

[BRIDGE]

         F               E
Keeping time with every rumble, 
       F             E
every quiver of the Earth
          F              E
And she slowly changes shape 
          F              E   E7
with the turning of the world

[INTERLUDE]

C  E7 Am
Oh-oh-oh

Am C Dm F x4

[OUTRO]

F E x 4 E7

C  E7 Am
Oh-oh-oh
