Intro: ( F Gm  Bb C  F Gm ) x2  D Db  C Bb  Gm

Gm             F          C                     Gm
In the garden district, where the plants grow strong and tall
   Bb                  A                 G#                    Gm
Behind the bush there lurks a girl, who makes them strong and tall

 NC               Gm  C        Bb                  F Gm  C       Bb
They just call her, Quicklime Girl, behind her back,   Quicklime Girl
               F Gm C       Bb               D 
Behind the bush,  Quicklime Girl, she's the mistress of the salmon salt
 C        Bb/C   C/Bb      Bb     C/A     Bb/A   Gm
Quicklime Girl, Quicklime Girl, Quicklime Girl

Gm                 F                C                 Gm
In the fall when plants return, by harvest time, she knows the score
 Bb            A                Ab            Gm
Ripe and ready to the eye, but rotten somehow to the core

 NC              Gm  C        Bb                  F Gm  C       Bb
And they call her, Quicklime Girl, behind her back,   Quicklime Girl
               F Gm C       Bb               D 
Behind the bush,  Quicklime Girl, she's the mistress of the salmon salt
 C        Bb/C   C/Bb      Bb     C/A     Bb/A   Gm
Quicklime Girl, Quicklime Girl, Quicklime Girl

   Gm                 C#m-5                  Cm                Bb
A harvest of life, or harvest of death, one body of life, one body of death
     Gm                  C#m-5                  Cm             Bb
And when you've gone and choked to death, with laughter and a little step
Gm                 C#m-5                       Cm             Bb
 I'll prepare the quicklime, friend, for your ripe and ready grave
          Cm             Bb
For your ripe and ready grave

Solo:   ( Gm C#7-5  Cm Bb ) x2  C Eb D7 Gm
Solo: ( F Gm  Bb C  F  Gm ) x2  D Db  C Bb  Gm

       Gm                F                       C                Gm
It's springtime now and cares subside, and the planting's almost done
     Bb                 A                      G#                Gm
And fertile graves, it seems, exist, within a mile of that juke joint

 F     Gm                      Bb         C            NC                F Gm
Where Coast Guard crews still take their leave, quite listless in the sun
         Bb                    A                 Ab                          Gm
And the Quicklime Girl still plies her trade, reduction of the many from the one

 NC              Gm  C        Bb                  F Gm  C       Bb
And they call her, Quicklime Girl, behind her back,   Quicklime Girl
               F Gm C       Bb                    D 
Behind the bush,  Quicklime Girl, well she's the mistress of the salmon salt
 C        Bb/C   C/Bb      Bb     C/A     Bb/A   Gm
Quicklime Girl, Quicklime Girl, Quicklime Girl

   Gm                 C#m-5               Cm                   Bb
A harvest of life, a harvest of death, resumes its course each day
Gm                  C#m-5       Cm                   Bb
 It comes as if by schedule, a harvest of limbs, of arms and of legs
     Gm                      C#m-5                 Cm                   Bb
The toes that crawl, and the knees that jerk, and neck like swans that seem to turn 
Gm        C#m-5      Cm      Bb
 As if inclined to grasp or pray

Outro:  ( Gm C#m-5 Cm Bb ) x4  C Eb D7 Gm
