Big, Strange, Beautiful Hammer

This song is in B flat, but most of the guitar was played with a capo on the third fret, 
though playing in G. The true chords are indicated below, with the fingered chords in brackets.

Intro: Eb [C] Eb/D [C/B] Cm [Am] x2
Eb [C] Eb/D [C/B] Cm [Am] Cm7 [Am7] F [D] F9/Eb [D9/C]
Bb/D [G/B ] F [D] F7 [D7]

                Bb [G]                 Cm [Am]
Discretion is a must,  rising from the dust,

                 Eb [C]        Bb [G]
on your feet but just a bit unsteady

                       Bb [G]                Cm [Am]
you want to close your eyes, be taken by surprise

                      Eb [C]     F [D]
but not before you're absolutely ready

       Eb [C]             Bb [G]
so lay low,    as time permits

           Eb [C]                 Bb [G]
and you'll know       it  when it hits:

                        Eb [C]  Eb/D [C/B]   Cm [Am]
it's gonna sound like a big

                        Eb [C]  Eb/D [C/B]   Cm [Am]
it's coming down like a big

                        Eb [C]  Eb/D  [C/B]   Cm [Am]  Cm7 [Am7]
it's gonna pound like a big,    strange,      beauti   ful

F [D]    F9/Eb[D9/C]  Bb/D [G/B]   F[D]
hammer

                      Bb [G]              Cm [Am]
You're feeling like a saint, powerful but faint

                 Eb [C]        Bb [G]
like you want to call for an attendant

              Bb [G]                  Cm [Am]
heavy in your hand,      courage on demand

                   Eb [C]        F [D]
you feel safe, and strangely independent

        Eb [C]            Bb [G]
once baptized in pain and light

           Eb [C]           Bb [G]
you'd be advised to hold on tight

                        Eb [C]  Eb/D  [C/B]   Cm [Am]
when you collide with a big

                    Eb [C]  Eb/D  [C/B]   Cm [Am]
you coincide with a big

                     Eb [C]  Eb/D  [C/B]   Cm [Am]  Cm7 [Am7]
filled inside with a big,    strange,      beauti   ful

F [D]       F9/Eb [D9/C ]  Bb/D [G/B]    F[D]   F7[D7]
hammer

                    Eb [C]
it's coming down on you

                     Bb [G]
it's gonna drive you home

Eb [C] Eb/D [C/B] Cm [Am] Cm7 [Am7] F [D] F9/Eb [D9/C]
Bb/D [G/B] F [D]

Bb [G]      Ab [F]     Eb7 [C7]   Bb [G]
hammer,                 hammer,

    Bb [G]     Ab [F]           Eb7 [C7]   Bb [G]
big hammer,             strange hammer

                Bb [G]                  Cm [Am]
Discretion is a waste, now you've had a taste

                    Eb [C]              Bb [G]
you see yourself as well-maintained and polished

               Bb [G]                 Cm [Am]
existence is a test, we try to do our best

               Eb [C]        F [D]
but we're on a quest to be demolished

          Eb [C]             Bb [G]
it's your right, so don't be shy

        Eb [C]               Bb [G]
day and night you're smitten by

               Eb [C]  Eb/D [C/B]   Cm [Am]
the might of a big

                        Eb [C]  Eb/D [C/B]   Cm [Am]
the blinding light of a big

                    Eb [C]  Eb/D [C/B]
in the night of the big,    strange,

Cm [Am]     Cm7 [Am7]   F [D]      F7 [D7]
beauti      ful         hammer

Bb [G]    Ab [F]     Eb7 [C7]   Bb [G]
hammer,              hammer,

Bb [G]     Ab [F]               Eb7 [C7]   Bb [G]
big hammer,             strange hammer
