Shovels And Rope - Shank Hill St chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Mike's doing some stuff with the bass notes on the Am chord, nothing too fancy just listen for it 
in the track. Also, the Em7 is more like Cmaj9/B. It's basically a step from C to Am that looks like 
this:

E]-0-
B]-1-
G]-0-
D]-0-
A]-2-
E]-x-

"Shank Hill St."
by Shovels and Rope
O' Be Joyful

Am

Am                                               G
Buzzing like a locust, vibrating right out of my skin
Am              F                   C             Em7    Am
Pounding on the butcher's wall, somebody come and let me in
                                                G
There's a black haired woman carrying a rolling pin
         Am          F          C         Em7      Am         C         Em7      Am
But your man's got a secret but she knows where he been yeah, she knows where he been

               F    G              C   Am    F              G      Am
And it'll be a long time 'fore the sun shines on Shank Hill Street again

         Am                                                G
You see, early in the morning, before the warm wind of the dawn
        Am             F                 C    Em7       Am
She saw thin man and a shadow make their way across the lawn
            Am                                       G
There was a rustle, was a razor and the whisper of a prayer
         Am            F             C         Em7    Am
Then the rhythm of the mallet like a heartbeat in the air

               F    G              C   Am    F              G      Am
And it'll be a long time 'fore the sun shines on Shank Hill Street again

C Am G Am

       Am                                    G
With a handshake like a hammer and a suicide grin
     Am                  F            C           Em7    Am           C       Em7    Am
That wooden door creaked open and the butcher-man let me in, yes like that he let me in
      Am                                            G
But I wasted not a minute, I was on him like a whip
    Am       F                     C   Em7 Am
For one last minute he'd feel that hot red drip, drip, drip, drip, drip, drip, drip

               F    G              C   Am    F              G      Am
And it'll be a long time 'fore the sun shines on Shank Hill Street again
