The Dozens – Amelia Curran

This is a pretty simple version of the general outline of the chord progression.  
There's not a ton of guitar in the mix of the album recording so I use "5" chords 
(AKA power chords) to approximate the bassline.  When it says "descending bass" 
you play the notes B - A - G - F# - E on the 5th and 6th strings.  Hope you like it!

All my lovers think I’m lovely in the morning when I wake
       B5                               E5
When I roll in folds of slumber, when I caress I give and take
       A5                                  E5
All my enemies are just like me: they’re a fatalist mistake
    B5                      (descending bass) E5
An abandoning of deities, the slowest interstate.

Let the bakers have their dozens
Let the coppers get their man
Let “Doctor-Lawyer” fix her for you
Catch her if they can
When all the stars in heaven 
Cannot count on me alone
For I’m the lover’s enemy
     (descending bass) E5
And I can’t be counted on

All my lovers under cover of night wrestle with their wounds
They’re pawing sorus(??) piety, they’re kissing pleasure’s gloom
All my enemies are ready for a drink or two to spite
They’re praying for forgiveness and they’re ready for a fight


All my lovers love me tirelessly, they listen and they see
They work the web of time itself to fall and capture me
All my enemies they envy every move I’ve ever made 
The tireless love I’ve gathered even the rain on my parade
