---------------------------------------------------------------------------

CHORDS

    A   D   C   G   E
e|--0---2---0---3---0--|
B|--2---3---1---3---0--|

VERSE:

A          D              A              C        D             A
After that confrontation,    you left me wringing my cold hands

               D               G                           D
We shared some information, we might not recover from

A                D            A            C         D            A
And i watch your convictions,    melt like ice cubes in an ocean

            D                E
You were so poorly cast as a malcontent


CHORUS:

G               D                 C
You've got them all on your side

                                  D         G
That just makes more for doubt to slaughter

        D                    C
I never knew he thought that

                               D       G
I heard you say falling out of the van

              D            C                            D        G
Don't ask for his opinion;    they ought to drown him in holy water

             D                         E
Will you remember my reply, when your high horse dies?


VERSE 2 (VERSE CHORDS)
We'd like to go the distance
But not a one of us is going to you
See no one is wise enough to turn the ancient boat around
These are the muddy waters I am swimming in
To make a living were I to drown in them
It should come as no surprise

REPEAT CHORUS
