My Wife And My Dead Wife – Robyn Hitchcock

             C                    G                C
My wife lies down in a chair, And Peels a Pear,  I know she’s there
           C               G               D
I’m making coffee for two, just me and you 
                        C                 G               D
But I come back in with coffee for three, Coffee for three
             C                G                 C
My dead wife sits in a chair, combing her hair, I know she’s there
C                           G                 D
She wanders off to the bed, shaking her head, Robyn she said
                      C   D                     
You know I don’t take sugar
G              C             Am                  G
My wife and my dead wife, am I the only one that sees her?
G              C                  Am                 G
My wife and my dead wife, Doesn’t anybody see her at all?
C          Fmaj7     G  
No, no no, no no no, nooooo
             C                       G                        C
My wife sits down on the stairs, and stares into air, there’s no one there
             Am                 G                D
I’m drilling holes in the wall, holes in the wall
                    C                           G
I turn round and my dead wife’s upstairs, she’s still wearing flares
    Fmaj7     C         G
She talks out loud, but no one hears

G              C             Am                  G
My wife and my dead wife, am I the only one that sees her
G              C                  Am                 G
My wife and my dead wife, Doesn’t anybody see her at all?
C          Fmaj7     G  
No, no no, no no no, nooooo
      C                    Am             G    Fmaj7  C   G
And I cannot decide, which one I love the most
    C                       Am            D
The flesh and blood, or the pale, smiling ghost
             C                        G                      C
My wife lies down on the beach, she’s sucking a peach, she’s out of reach
       C          Am                          G                 D
Of the waves that crash on the sand, where my dead wife stands, holding my hand
                           C                      G
Now my wife can’t swim but neither could she, and deep in the sea
      D                     D
She’s waiting for me, She’s waiting for me
        C            G           Fmaj7                   C
Oh, I’m such a lucky guy, ‘cause I got you baby and I’ll never be lonely
G              C          Am                     G
My wife and my dead wife, am I the only one that sees her?
G              C                  Am                 G
My wife and my dead wife, Doesn’t anybody see her at all?
C          Fmaj7     G  
No, no no, no no no, nooooo
C          Fmaj7      C 
No, no no, no no no, no
