INTRO/CHORUS

G                         D
Wake up, Flanagan, the bartender's comin'

                  Am 
He says there's someone here

             C  
Who means to do us harm

G                         D                      G    D    G
Sound the alarm, it's the man with the skeleton arms

VERSE

Em                  D 
Ten years ago on Hogsback Mountain

      C                      D
The flames was roaring like a lion in a fountain

     Em                      D
The trees were burning, too many to count 'em

      C      
And trapped in the middle

      D                                Em   D   Em F#m 
With fire all around him, was a man... 

Em                       D
Flanagan and I was out camping that day

      C                     D 
We started our fire with turpentine and hay

     Em                    D
The wind was howlin' so I guess we should have known

           C                   D                  Em   D  Em  F#m
That the flames was gonna get blown across the land

CHORUS

G                         D
Wake up, Flanagan, the bartender's comin'

                  Am 
He says there's someone here

             C  
Who means to do us harm

G                         D                      G   D  G
Sound the alarm, it's the man with the skeleton arms

VERSE

Two days later when the fire died out
Flanagan and I went rootin' about
For to find a little dinner of roasted critter,
Blackened blackbird eggs and pine-cone fritters

That was how we happened on the badly burned man
He was yelpin' for help and so we each grabbed a hand
Thinking we'd be heroes if we dragged him back home,
We pulled, but pulled the flesh right offa the bone

CHORUS

G                         D
Wake up, Flanagan, the bartender's comin'

                  Am 
He says there's someone here

             C  
Who means to do us harm

G                         D                      G   D  G
Sound the alarm, it's the man with the skeleton arms

BRIDGE
(same chords as verse)

Now of all the mad people, that guy was the maddest
He pulled a bone across his throat
And pointed right at us
Ten years on the lam from that skeletal man
He's sworn his revenge, we've heard his sinister plan: 

He'll string us up by our hands and lift us over a vat
And dip us up to our elbows in boiling fat
It's like an eye for an eye, but ninety-nine times worse
He wants to do to us what we did to him,
Except in reverse...

CHORUS

G                         D
Wake up, Flanagan, the bartender's comin'

                  Am 
He says there's someone here

             C  
Who means to do us harm

G                         D                      G   D  G
Sound the alarm, it's the man with the skeleton arms


OUTRO/CHORUS

G                         D
Wake up, Flanagan, the bartender's comin'

                  Am 
He says there's someone here

             C  
Who means to do us harm

G                         D                     Am  G   C   D  Em 
Sound the alarm, it's the man with the skeleton arms
