Song of the Sad Assassin
by
Why?

Basically the 1st part of the song alternates between [FIG.1] and [FIG.2]. The notes have
that triplet feeling over 4/4, so I separated them as such (you know, 1..2..3..1..2..3..)

[FIG.1]

C                                        Em......
We lifted the body from the water like a gown
C                                 Em......
You took off your bra to wrap the wound
C                                         Em......
Though the man was dead, and there was no need
C                                           Em......
Then your face turned red, when you said to me
     Fmaj7           F          G
I'll suck the marrow out....and rape your hollow bones, Yoni

[FIG.3] (piano part)
C                                Bbmaj7

(Here's the other thing that goes with [FIG.3]...sounds like either guitar or violins)

Alone, putting 3 coins into a washing machine
Next to a caulked cracked wall, in the basement on Fairmount Street
Putting 3 quarters into a washing machine,
Next to a caulked cracked wall, in the basement...

I feel... like a loop of the last 8 frames of film
Before a slow motion Lee Harvey Oswald
Gets shot in the gut and killed
Alone, putting 3 coins into a washing machine
Next to a caulked cracked wall, in the basement on Fairmount Street

Billy the Kid did what he did and he died....

[FIG.4] (Here's the last little ending thing on piano..)
Am                               Abmaj7
