The dogs are still expecting
your father is a general
Benjamin's a murderer
your sister is a sponge
your mother is a worker


C#m E    A             E              B     
Jonah, I ran into your mom, she isn't aging very well

A           E         B             E      
sometimes I think her face is gonna burst

      A	             C#m                        E
cause hiding pain is work, and your mother is a worker

A  E        B                   E             A               B
Jonah, some thoughts about your sister -- her eyes are always closed

A               E         B
ever since that day she's held a certain pose

F#         A               B           E            
it's not a coma, she's the opposite of numb

     A                C#m                      E
some people soak pain up, and your sister is a sponge

         A           E        F#    E
and your mother is a worker


F# A     C#m       E        A               E           B* 
Jonah, I still see Ben, but if i bring your name up the conversation ends

         F#             A           C#m            E
cause he loaned you the shotgun you took up to the cabin

A               E       B*                    C#m          E
whatever people say, he only hears the words 'Benjamin's a murderer'

     A           E            F#          E         B*
your sister is a sponge, your mother is a worker


B*            A               E          B
Jonah, Jonah, news about your dad -- you thought he drank before

A      E           B*                     A               C#m
now he drinks, his body is at war and his stomach's never full

                       E        A            E
cause your father is a general, Benjamin's a murderer

     F#          E            A           E        B    A
your sister is a sponge, your mother is a worker


C#m                     A       E            A                 B
Jonah they gave me your goddamn dogs and I'm sick of what they do

     F#           A                F#           E
they bark at everything until they see it isn't you

          C#m                            F#          E
cause the dogs are still expecting, your father is a general

A                           B*                       A                   B   A
Benjamin's a murderer, your sister is a sponge, your mother is a worker

A  E  B  A   A  E  B  A


    C#m*
The dogs are still expecting
your father is a general
Benjamin's a murderer
your sister is a sponge
your mother is a worker
