[Intro] A

A                   Bm
I lit a thin green candle
D                      A
To make you jealous of me.
A                         Bm
The room filled up with mosquitos
       D                     E
They heard that my body was free
F#m                       C#m
And I took the dust of a long sleepless night
       D                     A
And I put it in your little shoe
Bm                         G
And I must confess that I tortured the dress
         Bm            A              G           A
That you wore for the world to look through.

A                             Bm
And I showed my heart to the doctor
D                           A
He said, “You just have to quit”
A                           Bm
Then he wrote himself a prescription
A                              E
And your name was mentioned in it
F#m                          C#m
Then he locked himself in a library shelf
          D                A
With the details of our honeymoon
Bm                               G
I hear from the nurse that he’s gotten much worse
        Bm           A        G          A
And his practice is all in a ruin.

A                           Bm
I once knew a saint who had loved you
D                           A
I studied all night in his school
A                           Bm
He taught that the duty of lovers 
        D                  E
Was to tarnish the golden rule.
F#m                                C#m
And just when I was sure that his teachings were pure
      D                    A
he drowned himself in the pool
      Bm                   G
his body is gone, but out here on the lawn
Bm          A           G        A
his spirit continues to drool.

A                     Bm
An Eskimo showed me a movie
D                       A
He’d recently taken of you
A                               Bm
The poor man could hardly stop shivering
A                              E
His lips and his fingers were blue
F#m                              C#m
I suppose that he froze when the wind took your clothes
      D                       A
And I guess he just never got warm
Bm                                    G
But you stand there so nice, in your blizzard of ice
        Bm          A          G       A
Please let me come into your storm.

Then replay the stanza and hum or Ooo the tune ending with Am.

Sounds great! However, on the parts right before the F#m, such as the line "And your name was mentioned in it", it should be D and then E instead of A and then E. This is the same in "His lips and his fingers were blue".
