Camper Van Beethoven:
"All Her Favorite Fruit" - Key Lime Pie

(I worked this out also over the break)
                                                        last time slide
G-2-------2-------2-------2---------2----repeat this--|---------------------|

I drive alone, home from work
                      Am   F
And I always think of her
C                                           Am    F
Late at night I call her, but I never say a word
F                             Am                F                 C  F
But I can see her squeeze the phone between her chin and shoulder
Am        F                C                     F                   C    F
And I can almost smell her breath, faint, with a sweet scent of decay
She serves him mashed potatoes
                        Am         F
She serves him peppered steak, and corn
C                                                     Am   F
Pulls the dress up over her head, lets it fall to the floor
F                         Am          F                     C  F
And does she ever whisper in his ear, all her favorite fruit
Am          F           C               F
And all the most exotic places they are cultivated
C                                                Am        F
And I'd like to take her there, rather than this train I'm on
C                                                         Am      F
And if I weren't a civil servant, I'd have a place in the colonies
F                        Am                     F                    C  F
We'd play croquet behind white-washed walls and drink our tea at four
Am     F              C               F
Within intervention's distance of the embassy
C                           F C
The midday air grows thicker with the heat
           Am                  F
And drifts towards the line of trees
C                           F C                    Am F
When negroes blink their eyes, they sink into siesta
F                         Am               F            C   F
And we are rotting like a fruit underneath a rusting roof
Am           F                   C              F
We dream our dreams and sing our songs of love - fecundity
   C            F    C        F        C        F
Of life and love, of life and love, of life and love

(end with opening riff, then finish on D)

You may wish to play the G barred on the 3rd fret, and sometimes pick the
top three strings descending.
