Terre Roche - The Snake

CAPO: 2nd Fret


[Verse 1]

If you move into my life and take over my soul
F                                         Am
Charm all my friends and play the rescuer role

Let me quit my job to go on your dole
    F                     E              Dm
And make your approval my ultimate goal

[Verse 3]
I will begin to shrink 
    Dm                  Am
Back into the corner of my own skin
     Dm                Am
Until I'm so small and pink 
     Dm                          Am
That no one would see me even if they got in

[Verse 3]
     Dm                             Am
Your enormous index finger would be probing to find me
     Dm                             Am
As I darted between the walls of my own personality
               Dm                 Am
Which would be changing as I left most of it behind me
     Dm             E         B
Disappearing into a new reality

[Verse 4]
And when you tried to trot me out to show me to your friends
They'd say, "What girlfriend? We don't see any girlfriend"
As you open the door of your Mercedes Benz
    F                                          E        Dm
Now you've got the oyster you don't need the pearl when

[Verse 5]
You can have my beautiful smile
     Dm                  Am
That wonderfully elegant style
Dm                      Am
All my show business connections
Dm                Am
Both of my cats affections

[Verse 6]
    Dm                        Am
The clothes you bought me are yours
     Dm            Am
That Timex watch endures
   Dm                          Am
My good relationship with your mom
    Dm        E 
My ability to remain calm

[Verse 7]
But here I'd be like a dead person looking down
At the cemetery where they placed a stone
With a name on it like Jane Smith or John Brown
       F                    E         Dm
That I no longer recognized as my own

[Verse 8]
             Am                          Dm
Hold me tight and I'll just shed my skin
             E                 Am
Slither away, no matter what's happening
