Intro:

G G G C9
G G G C9
F F F F
G G G 

Verse:
G
Hello! 
........................C9..G
ain't you as pretty as a peso 
..........................F
come and slip out of your halo let it slip 
............................G
and lose your grip a little while so let go! 
come and slide outside your window 
loosen up and feel the grass grow, the wind blow, the moon she's a-glowin' 
and she's throwin' down a wicked little smile 

Chorus:
C7.....................G
Don'tcha wanna tip the apple cart over, baby? 
Don'tcha wanna shoot an arrow at the sky?
.............Em...............C
The fruit is throbbing on the vine.. so 
.....Am...................C.........D
many castles to storm and so little time! 

Floatin' downstream 
on a river laden up with prayer and doubt and dreams 
borne amongst the grit, the silt and salty things 
overlooked and too small to be loved 

Chorus:
Don'tcha wanna knock the apple cart over, baby? 
oil up your favorite monkeywrench now!
the fruit is throbbing on the vine.. so many castles to storm and so 
little time! 

Bridge:
G.....F#/G.....F/G...............Em/G
Mary, Mary the world is wild and wide 
........D#.......................D
outside enough of castles and of kings get back to smaller and better 
things! 

Interlude:
D#...D...D#...D

At the rat race baby, I couldn't even find a parking space 
let the Joneses keep the whole damn chase 
and their golden treadmills for first place 

Chorus
Don'tcha wanna knock the apple cart over, baby? 
shoot another flaming arrow at the sky? 
the fruit is throbbing on the vine.. so many castles to storm and so 
little time! 

Bridge:
Mary... Mary, the world is wild and wide outside 
D........................D#
enough of castles and of kings 
D.........................D#
down with empire, up with Spring 
back to smaller and better things!
