A chord diagramG+G
Oh sister, don't be afraid of me
I won't be nailing you down in the nursery
A chord diagramC majorC
Just like the rest of them did
With those watery, wandering fingers that slipped
                         A chord diagramG+G              A chord diagramC majorC A chord diagramG+G
That were supposed to be glorious and fine

A chord diagramG+G
Oh sister, won't you believe in me
I only wanted to be hard on your family
A chord diagramC majorC
Here with you now in this silly infirmary
Your mother makes frantic and drunk calls from Germany
A chord diagramG+G           A chord diagramC majorC A chord diagramG+G
All of the time

A chord diagramG+G
Oh sister, sweet brown and beulahry
And milk from your blisters on your grandmother's jewelry
A chord diagramC majorC
there in the parlor all naked in front of me

Watching the lights from the cracks
               A chord diagramG+G         A chord diagramC majorC  A chord diagramG+G
Making archery animal designs

A chord diagramE minorEm                            A chord diagramC majorC
Rose Wallace Goldeline just moves her mouth over anything
A chord diagramG+G                                 A chord diagramD MajorD
Fleshy free and flowering with oranges out in the open
A chord diagramE minorEm
But don't you waste your sins again
A chord diagramC majorC
She don't need you
or won't fuck your friends
A chord diagramG+G                               A chord diagramD MajorD
And you, you're American, so important boiling over
A chord diagramE minorEm
To prove that she must still exist
A chord diagramC majorC
she moves herself about her fist
A chord diagramG+G
and never ever give a shit
A chord diagramD MajorD
about all those words you're wasting again
A chord diagramE minorEm       A chord diagramC majorC                    A chord diagramG+G
Some pretty bright and bubbly wondrous dream
              A chord diagramD MajorD
You'd like to kill and cling
And claim her as your own
A chord diagramE minorEm
But don't you worry
A chord diagramC majorC                       A chord diagramG+G
All those dainty and dirty emotions
      A chord diagramD MajorD
just go away and fade out on their own
A chord diagramG+G
Sister, now that you're leaving
Our fingers will falter
Our lungs will be leaking
A chord diagramC majorC
All over each other and without even speaking
We'll know that it's over and smiling or greeting
A chord diagramG+G                A chord diagramC majorC A chord diagramG+G
Whatever comes next

A chord diagramG+G
And oh sister
You're getting married with some angry twister
                                 A chord diagramC majorC
That you'll have to carry home drunk every evening from the cemetery
And if he makes it back half alive you can bury him
A chord diagramG+G             A chord diagramC majorC  A chord diagramG+G
Under your sheets

A chord diagramG+G
And oh sister
now that you're greaving
I can not imagine there is any meaning
A chord diagramC majorC
forgetting you ever could once had the feeling that made you keep on
                                  A chord diagramG+G            A chord diagramC majorC  A chord diagramG+G
and pretend you were breathing of all of this world
In an age of empty rings
A chord diagramD MajorD                        A chord diagramC majorC
I don't want to feel a thing
                      A chord diagramG+G        A chord diagramC majorC  A chord diagramG+G
I don't even want to know

                       A chord diagramD MajorD
and Rose Wallace Goldeline
                      A chord diagramC majorC
don't you ever die on me
                           A chord diagramG+G
Don't you own the way you go
