Barenaked Ladies - Fox On The Run chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
This is a medley BNL have been playing live for years. It used to be played 
acoustically around one microphone, and was led in by the song "Crazy". Recently, 
BNL have been playing it full-band and removed "Crazy" to make it a song on its 
own. They also added the chorus of "Pumped Up Kicks" in there.

Standard tuning
NO capo

It starts with "Fox On The Run" by Tom T. Hall:

[Intro]
G, D, Am, C, Am, D, C, G [x2]

[Chorus]
(G)                   D             Am          C
She walks through the corn leadin' down to the river
     Am              D          C            G
Her hair shone like gold in the hot mornin' sun
(G)               D          Am              C
She took all the love that a poor boy could give her
    Am          D          C          G
And left me to die like a fox on the run
        C                        (Mute)    G
Like a fox, like a fox, like a fox on the run

[Verse 1]
     C         G         D             G
Now everybody knows the reason for my fall
   C             G          A7       D
A woman tempted me down in paradise hall
      C            G           D            G
This woman tempted me and she took me for a ride
C              G            D               G
Like a lonely fox, boys, I need a place to hide

[Chorus]
She walks through the corn leadin' down to the river
Her hair shone like gold in the hot mornin' sun
She took all the love that a poor boy could give her
And left me to die like a fox on the run
Like a fox, like a fox, like a fox on the run

[Instrumental]
G, D, Am, C, Am, D, C, G

[Verse 2]
Oh, we'll drink a glass of wine, boys, to purify our soul
We'll talk about the world and the friends we used to know
I see a string of girls who have put me on before
The game is nearly over and the hounds are at the door

[Chorus]
She walks through the corn leadin' down to the river
Her hair shone like gold in the hot mornin' sun
She took all the love that a poor boy could give her
And left me to die like a fox on the run
Like a fox, like a fox, like a fox on the run

Then it leads in to "Bird On A Wire" by Leonard Cohen:

[Chorus]
       G          D
Like a bird on a wire
       G                    C
Like a drunk in a midnight choir 
       G            D
I have tried in my ways
       G C G D G
To be freeeeeeeee

Then it leads in to "Pumped Up Kicks" by Foster The People:

[Chorus]
G             D             Am        C
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks
       Am           D    C         G
Better run, better run, Outrun my gun
G             D             Am        C
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks
       Am           D     C            G
Better run, better run, faster than my bullet

Then leads in to "It Takes Two" by Rob Base and DJ E-Z Rock:

Hit it!
[Verse]
G                  D
I wanna rock right now
        Am                     C
I'm Rob Base and I came to get down
        Am               D
I'm not internationally known
         C                     G
But I'm known to rock the microphone
(G)                              D
Because I get stoopid, I mean outrageous
          Am                    C
Stay away from me if you're contagious
               Am                      D
'Cause I'm the winner, no, I'm not the loser
         C              G
To be an M.C. is what I choose 'a
(G)                    D
Ladies love me, girls adore me
       Am                      C
I mean even the ones who never saw me
         Am                     D
Like the way that I rhyme at a show
           C                 G
The reason why, man, I don't know

[Chorus]
(G)      C    (mute)            G
It takes two to make a thing go right
(G)      C    (mute)           G     D G
It takes two to make it outta sight
