[Intro]
C, Em, Am
C, Em, Am, G

               C
she homed with thieves
          Em
kicked up dirty leaves
          Am
she was a maniac
         F
no one's heart attack
she got around
slept on the bad side of town
she was cooler than you
way cooler than me
she was true, all blinded and bruised
she didn't give a fuck
no he had given up
she was alive
she was caught on fire
she was everything
she was all of this

G

    F                     G
she opened up and laid it all right there
              Am
she said, "no i don't mind
       Em
no, no i don't care
     F               C              G
i'll help you shovel out my shallow hole
      F                   G
and i know i know they're threatening
       Am                       Em
but at least we're not the ones carrying
     F           C             G
such heavy heavy heavy stoning stones
    Dm
and yeah i know they'll get you down
they'll do you in and they'll drag it out
       Am                 Em             G
'cause me and you, we are one of a kind

             C
she liked to lose
           Em
never wore sunday shoes
              Am                       F
she found his luck in wells and corner stores and jails
she was crazy
a downtown kind of baby
always dangerous, she got me down on my knees
she made it rain
she called the wind and then it came
oh with the wave of his hand
she brought the sunshine right in
she was the sky
beyond steeple and the choir
oh, the preacher's amen
his hallelujah child

G

    F                     G
she opened up and laid it all right there
              Am
she said, "no i don't mind
       Em
no, no i don't care
     F               C              G
i'll help you shovel out my shallow hole
      F                   G
and i know i know they're threatening
       Am                       Em
but at least we're not the ones carrying
     F           C             G
such heavy heavy heavy stoning stones

             F                          G
so when your bones are broke and you're all alone
        Am                       Em
and the fog's so thick you can't see up close
     F                C                G
just know that i will end up strangled too
             F                    G
and when the floods they come all rushing in
        Am                   Em
and the boat is full and you can't get in
    F            C                 G
oh, it's okay if you don't want to swim
                Dm
and when you're swallowed up, oh, don't you cry
just give right in, don't try to fight
       G
'cause baby i wouldn't pay no mind
there's nothing you can do
C                G                   Am 
they'll have you coughing up your colors
they'll have you coughing up your colors
they'll have you coughing up your colors
they'll have you coughing up your colors

Dm, G

             C
she sang the blues
       Em           
out of time and out of tune
         Am
spoke no silver spoon
     F
only simple truths
she was a friend, stabbed backs and broke plans
she would give you her coat
or put nails through her hand

she was wise, full of magic and life
oh you could see it in his eyes
oh yeah i saw it in his eyes
she was more than this
oh way more than this
she was everything
she was all of this

G, Dm
