C             D
we picked our way
Bb           Ebmaj7
down to the beach
Cm           F              Bb         Gm
watching the waves dragging out of our reach
Am7        Ab          F       C
tangling tails like a sodden sheet
   Am7     Ab            F         C
dangling entrails from the gut of the- sea
C           D
hoarding our means
  Bb        Ebmaj7
alfalfa and rose
Cm            F              Bb         Gm
trying not to catch the cold eye of the gulls
   Am7         Ab       F            C
i hope mother nature has not overheard
           Am7       Ab          F        C
though she doles out hurt like a puking bird

C               E
stayed for the winter
D        F#m               C         Em
  no one told us about the laws of the land
Bb        Dm
i hold my own
    C               E
but you with your hunger
D          F#m       C   Em
you on the other hand
Bb            Dm
make yourself known
    C             D
and when we were found
  Bb           Ebmaj7
i know we both grieved
    Cm            F              Bb           Gm
my heart made the sound of snow falling from eaves
Am7          Ab
you and me, bess
   F                  C
we were as thick as thieves
     Am7         Ab
so i swore nonetheless
F                      C
up and down it was only me
       C         D
so they took me away
    Bb          Ebmaj7
and after some time
Cm          F
studying my case
       Bb            Gm
must've made up their minds
Am7            Ab       F      C
by the time you realized i was dying
Am7              Ab
must've been too late
   F                   C
i believe you were not-uh lying

C         E      D            F#m          C         Em
it is the day i    wake with my ears cocked up like a dawn
Bb       Dm
like everyday, of course
C            E            D           F#m
yanked by my wrist to the sugar front courtyard
         C            Em
nah tell me what have i done
Bb           Dm
seems i have stolen a horse
    C              E
and escaped to the gallows
D        F#m                C     Em
  who do you think that you are
Bb        Dm
arching your hooves like a queen
C       E      D           F#m      C      Em
in the shallow gutter that line the boulevards
Bb           Dm
crowded with folks who just
C         D
stare as i hang
Bb            Ebmaj7
it's all the same
Cm             F
kindness comes over me
 Bb          Gm
what was your name
Am7          Ab
it makes no difference
    F                 C
I'm glad that you came
    Am7      Ab              F      C
forever i'll listen to your gla-a-d name

La la la....
Am7, Ab, F, C x 8

Almost perfect,
but the ending should be:

Am7, Ebmaj7, Dm7, C
