'HUNGER SONG' by THE MIDDLE EAST -- chords by Michael M. (Aeromidd)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
First submission; please be constructive. I made this because I could't find the proper chords anywhere,
and this is a really underrated song by a really underrated band.
I developed these chords in G because it's easier to play on the mandolin (and easier for me to sing) 
but should work just fine for a guitar too if you stick a capo on 2nd, if you want to play it in its
original key. Lyrics are from azlyrics.com so don't blame me if they turn out to be wrong...
Enjoy!

Capo 2nd fret

[Intro (rough chord structure)]
G G C G D G


[Verse 1]
D                   D
I’ve got a hollow inside my stomach
       C             C
That I can’t seem to fill
             G
With all the things
     C   G
That I believe

  D                       D
I fill it with mead and I fill it with bread
      C                       C
And I fill it with drink on a
            Em
Saturday evening
     C      G
Till Sunday morning


[Chorus 1]
    B              Em
But I’m still hungry
                 D    C
For something to fill me
D                  C
Ah, make me whole again
D                  C    G B Em D C
So I won’t be hungry anymore
   G C G
Anymore


[Verse 2]
D                D
My own neighbour knew wood and skin
       C
He was good with his hands
      C           G
Always heavy with drinking
C      G
My own neighbour

D                  D
My own neighbour’s wife came home
       C
In the early morning
    C   
She grabbed the little girl and
    Em              C
She took off in the half-light
             G
To the Best Western


[Chorus 2]
    B            Em
Now he’s looking for
             D         C
Something to fill this time
D              C
True, give his heaviness
D           C        G
Something involved, oh
D         C
Fill this time
D              C
True, give his heaviness
D           C        G B Em D C
Something involved, oh
G B Em D C
Oh

If you’re coming back
   C      G
To me lonely
       B             Em
But if you’re coming home
C        G
Cold and hungry
B         Em
I’m gonna die…


[Final Chorus]
D              C
You’re needing for
D           C
You, for my baby
D              C
For your whole life
D      C
For my lovely
D        C         G B Em D C
For your fingers, oh
G B Em D C
Oh
