[VERSE 1]

G
I can still see you there
          C                 G   G/F#
In your grass-stained underwear
 Em              G 
Dancing crooked circles
  Am                    C       D
Across the golf course green
G
It must have been 3 a.m.
        C                       G    G/F#
When we hopped that chain link fence
Em                  G
And ran across the grass
                D  Dsus4 D
In the pouring rain
G
Oh and you kept falling down
     C               G    G/F#
and rolling on the ground
        Em              G
like a drunken little bird
Am              C    D     G G A B
flapping its broken wings

[CHORUS]

C               G             Bm            C
Flapping your broken wings, flapping your broken wings
C              Em     C           Dsus4    D     G    G/F#
flapping your broken wings in the green, green grass

[BRIDGE]

       Em
As if pilgrims with axes
           C
had never seen the devil dancing
C#/A7 [X4202X]
in the silent branches
     C
of thousand year old trees
         Em
As they sailed up the wild coast
  C
leaning from their wooden boats
C#/A7
shooting every pretty bird
      C                         
that rose up from the weeds

G F#  Em C C#/A7 C G

[VERSE 2]

          G
When the sun began to rise
         C              G    G/F#
I could see it in your eyes
      Em            G
and shining on the golf balls
Am             C    D
lying in the grass
       G
And a rusted chain link fence
   C              G   G/F#
a golf cart in a ditch
         Em             
and the colored flags
     G                   D     Dsus4 D
you pulled from all the holes
      G
Like jewels on your green dress
    C           G          G/F#
my lady of the golf course
Em               G
running in your underwear
     Am                   C    D     G G A B
to greet the cops who'd driven up

[CHORUS]

C               G             Bm            C
Flapping your broken wings, flapping your broken wings
C              Em     C           Dsus4    D     G    G A B
flapping your broken wings in the green, green grass
C               G             Bm            C
Flapping your broken wings, flapping your broken wings
C              Em     C           Dsus4    D     G  
flapping your broken wings in the green, green grass
