Intro: D5   A    G*

   Bm               G
Rob lived in a box by the rails
   Bm               G
Only thing he knew, you don't fail
    Bm                 G
When you live in a box by the rails
    A            G*                         D5
Don't comb your hair, don't comb your tail

D5
Sweep my mess away
D5
Leave my body, leave my bones
D5
Leave me whole and leave my soul
  G*                      Bm
Leave me nothing, I don't need at all
   G*                 D5
Nothing, I don't need at all

Transition: A   G*

He ate from the bins in the park
Stayed out with the rats after dark
Never left a trail, never made his mark
When he ate with the rats after dark

Sweep my mess away
Leave my body, leave my bones
Leave me whole and leave my soul
Leave me nothing, I don't need at all
Nothing, I don't need at all

Transition

Calling on his friends, never made him sad
Didn't want the things he never had
It only made them feel so bad
For having the things he never had

Sweep my mess away
Leave my body, leave my bones
Leave me whole and leave my soul
Leave me nothing, I don't need at all
Nothing, I don't need at all

Transition

Bm                      G
If you stay in that box overnight
Bm                              G
And don't get out when it gets light
Bm                              G
There's not much lost of the secret life
A               G*                      Bm
That's done wrong and it's never done right
                G
Now some more flowers grow
Bm              G
The corn gets eaten by a few more crows
Bm               G
And an old man's box is full of bones
A               G*              D5
Won't see his footprints in the snow

Sweep my mess away
Leave my body, leave my bones
Leave me whole and leave my soul
Leave me nothing, I don't need at all
Nothing, I don't need at all

D5
Sweep my mess away
D5
Leave my body, leave my bones
D5
Leave me whole and leave my soul
G*                        Bm
Leave me nothing, I don't need at all
G*                  D5
Nothing, I don't need at all 

The outro is kind of weird, but after the last D5, you switch to A, G*, and then 
it's pretty much the intro
over and over until you're on D5 for the last hit.
