The Matriarch Song by Buck & Deanne - www.buckanddeanne.com Copyright C Paul Buckberry 2009 INTRO: Dm7 / Am7 / Dm7 / Am7 / Dm7 / Am / C / F / G... C G Hotter than a perfect lover C G Colder than a surrogate mother Am C That's what happens when a matriarch F G Doesn't get her way C G She'll build a bomb in silence C G And explode it without violence Am C A matriarch will stop at nothing F G Till her point is made. F G C B(bass) Am Don't snuggle too closely to her bosom F G C B(bass) Am You'll be cluttering her velvet cushion F G C B(bass) Am Shanghaied by her soft illusion - F And bouncing off the walls G Just to keep her sane... (Chords repeated) The goal posts will be shifted Till her spirits are uplifted That's what happens when a matriarch Doesn't get her way She'll take away your rudder With her words all made of rubber A matriarch will stop @ nothing Till her point is made. F G C B(bass) Am Then one day she tells you straight: F Cmaj7 "If you hate me it's because I'm great..." F And the next day: G C B(bass) Am "If you love me it's because I'm great..." F G One heart is never enough...for a soul-mate... SOLO over VERSE chorus chords: F G Sit down Vera Lynn C B(bass) Am Freely on your pumpkin. F Deftly pass the stone - C B(bass) Am To your next of kin F Bounced off the walls C B(bass) Am La-h-menting on your violin - F The state you're in: F G Dogged and driven, since you left your mother's home She'll be your greatest folly And you her voodoo dolly That's what happens when a matriarch Doesn't get her way. She'll argue And she'll reason But never be fairly beaten A matriarch will stop @ nothing Till her point is made. C G H-a-r-k C G In the dark Am C F G A matriarch is getting her own way FADE...
