     C      G      Am            Fsus4 
when I was baby I looked like a pig 
    C       G           Am            Fsus4 
my nose a snout and my ears were too big 
    G                        C Em/Badd6 Am 
my mother would poke at the hole 
        G          Fsus4                     G 
at the back of my head where my brain was exposed 
           C      Em/Badd6 Am     G 
I didn't know it then but never again 
          Fsus4        G         C  G Am G Fsus4 G 
would recapture those wonderful days 

     C        G      Am          Fsus4 
When I was a baby I fell down a well 
   C           G           Am         Fsus4 
I landed deep down in the furnace of hell 
     G                        C Em/Badd6 Am 
the devil would rock me to sleep 
       G           Fsus4             G 
with stories of cities of ivory and gold 
           C     Em/Badd6 Am     G 
it took a long, long time before I could 
   Fsus4          G        C G Am G Fsus4 G 
escape from that terrible hole 

 [ C G Am G Fsus4 G ]

     C        G      Am          Fsus4 
when I was a baby I lived in a crib 
     C         G         Am         Fsus4 
I crawled on floors and ate with a bib 
     G                C Em/Badd6 Am 
but then I was taken away 
         G           Fsus4                    G 
and was sold to the circus for trinkets and beads 
           C     Em/Badd6       Am  
now I lie awake at night and dream about 
  G           Fsus4      G          C G Am G Fsus4 G 
what I would do if I was ever set free 

 [ C G Am G Fsus4 G ]

 [ Ends with C ]
