Intro: D, G, D, A, D

   D                G     A   D
Oh where is your inflammatory writ
                        G     A        D
Your text that would inside a light be lit

Our music deserving devotion unswerving

Cried do I deserve her with unflagging fervour
                        G          A    D            
Well no we do not if we cannot get over it
    GM7                                Bm
But whatís it mean when suddenly weíre spent tell me true
  GM7                                  Bm
Ambition came and reared itís head and went far from you
Even molluscs have weddings though solemn and leaden
But you dirge for the dead and take no jam on your bread
       D                    G                  A     D
Just a supper of salt and a waltz through your empty bed
    F              A
And all at once it came to me
      Bb                 F
And I wrote in hunch til 4:30y
Cm          Gm       A            D
But that vestal light it burns out with the night
   G7                         Dm
In spite of all the time that we spent on it
   Bb             F
On one bedraggled ghost of a sonnet
      G                D
While outside the wild boars root
Bm                A
Without bending a bough underfoot
      C                       G
Oh it breaks my heart I donít know how they do it

So donít ask me
    D           G     A    D
And as for my inflammatory writ
                     G      A         D
I wrote it and I was not inflamed one bit
Advice from the master derailed that disaster
He said hand that pen over to me poetaster
While Ďcross the great plains keening lovely and awful
You ulate the lost great American novels
   D                    G           A           D
An unlawful lot left to stutter and freeze floodlit
                                      G   A       D  A D
But at least they didnít run to their undying credit
