[Verse]
G
Another day of digging 
      Am        C          G
There must be a rat in the hole 
G                        Am         C                    G 
I make no progress, this hard ground has got the digging slow 
G               C    Am  C
Got the digging slow 
C               Am      C         G 
There’s just no promise when you go 

[Verse]
G
Bright green grass 
       Am              C           G
Burned yellow like I’m pissing gasoline 
G                          Am    C                   G   
In two weeks time replace my leg with staples and string 
            C      Am  C
Staples and string 
C               Am   C        G 
The sound and lights smell so obscene 

[Chorus]
G                 D
But, I’ll wait around, 
C            G            D
Like all the rest, hoping I
C               G 
don’t starve to death
    Am              C              G
The whistler... the whistler knows best 
    Am              C              G
The whistler... the whistler knows best 

[Verse]
G                     Am     C             G
Black in the muzzle, like my double barrel shotgun 
G                         Am        C              G   
Just three years old, but damn if I don’t feel that young 
                  C   Am  C
Don’t feel that young 
C      Am         C        G 
Like I did when you up and run 

[Chorus]
G                 D
But, I’ll wait around, 
C            G            D
Like all the rest, hoping I
C                  G 
don’t draw my last breath
    Am              C              G
The whistler... the whistler knows best 
    Am              C              G
The whistler... the whistler knows best

[Bridge]
Am                             C G Em                        
Better be careful what you ask for 
Am                         C G Em
Outside the shadow of the house 
D               Am              C
It might not be flowers like it seems 
        Am         C
But dandelions and ditch weed 
     Am        C
Dandelions and ditch weed

[Chorus]
                  D
But, I’ll wait around, 
C            G            D
Like all the rest, hoping I
C               G             D
don’t starve to death, hopin' I
      C            G 
don’t draw my last breath
    Am              C              G
The whistler... the whistler knows best 
    Am              C              G
The whistler... the whistler knows best
