In a town in the woods at the top of a hill


There’s a house where no one lives


So you take a big bag of your big city money there.. and buy it


Then at night when the house is dark


And you’re all alone there’s a noise upstairs


At the top of the stairs there’s a door so you take a deep breath and try it




        F                    C                Dm              Am


And the flashlight shows you something moving just inside the door


          F                    C                D                E


There’s a tattered dress and a feeling you have felt somewhere before....




[ chorus ]




Am                          F


 And there’s a creepy doll,  That always follows you


G                                   Gb G     Ab A


 It’s got a ruined eye,      That’s al-ways.. o-pen


Am                          F


 And there’s a creepy doll,  That always follows you


G                                   Gb G     Ab A


 It’s got a pretty mouth,    To swallow.. you whole




Fmaj7




Am                     E


 So you scream and you close the door


        C                    D


And you tell yourself it was just a dream


F                   C                        D              E


 In the morning you head into town cause you want to go.. antiquing


Am                      E


 In the store there’s a strange old man


       C                   D


With a wandering eye and a withered hand


F                      C                      D                  E


 When he hands you the old wooden box you can hear his old bones creaking




        F(maj7)            C               Dm              Am


And you know what you will find inside the moment that you see


     F                   C             D                E


That someone carved your name into the tarnished silver key




[ repeat chorus ]




    F                  C                Dm             Am


And when you come home late the doll is waiting up for you


    F              C                   Dm                Am


And when you fix a snack the doll says it would like one too


    F               G                 F                G


The doll is in your house and in your room and in your bed


    F               G                Fmaj7            G                C


The doll is in your eyes and in your arms and in your head and you are crazy




F D7 F 




Am                     E


 Now it’s late and you head downstairs


          C                       D


Cause you just can’t sleep so you make some tea


F                  C                     D                     E


 And the doll disapprovingly asks if you really need that much honey


Am                      E


 You decide that you’ve had enough


        C                    D


And you lock the doll in the wooden box


F                       C                      D               E


 You put the box in the fireplace next to your bag of big city money


       F(maj7)             C                 Dm              Am


As the smoke fills up your tiny room there’s nothing you can do


    F                C           D                 E


And far too late you see the one inside the box is you




[ repeat chorus ]
