I know the outro is missing but I was too lazy to write it down.

The Throes					           (Two Gallants)
                                                              (Capo +3)

Intro: C Em Am G

1.
C                                         Em
'Well I don't know if I can take this anymore'
                                            Am
she's thinkin' as he shoves her 'gainst the wall
                                         G
Screamin'. 'Well than what good are you for,
                                  C
you don't give me no pleasure at all.'
                          Em
'Oh now I know I need to leave'
                      Am
so she tells herself again,
                               G
wipes a little blood upon her sleeve,

but she don't tell herself when.
     F             C            Am         G   
And baby starts a cryin', daddy sits back down,
C              G                  Am     G
sinks another drink to bring his temper down.
         C                            G
And his image there reflectin' on the TV screen,
F                C               Am             G
reminds her of a better day she thought she'd seen.

Refrain:
         C                G
But now take your time before you grieve,
F                        C
and keep your heart hid off your sleeve,
F                       C
cause ain't no one but you deceived,
Am                G
your sympathy is soon to leave.
         C                 G
And now hide your mouth before you speak,
F                   C
or better yet just turn a cheek
F                      C
I watch your interest growin' weak,
F                      C
but still you say that I'm the freak
       Em           G        C
and I guess that's fine with me.

C                                  Em
But he's probably had a long, long day,
                                         Am
she's thinkin' in the kitchen while she weeps,
                            G
puttin' dinner's leftovers away
                                       C
as he stumbles off to bed and then to sleep.
                                 Em
Surely he'll be better come the dawn,
                                            Am
when I rise to cook him breakfast 'fore he goes,
                                    G
wakes without a word and then he's gone,
                                       C
he's got that kind of love that never shows.
     F             C              Am         G   
And baby starts a wailin', daddy comes back down,
C              G           Am        G
'Shut up that child', she hears him shout,
     C                                G
and cradled in her arms she tries to calm the sound,
F             C                      Am         G
'How am I to sleep', he screams and slaps her down.

Refrain:
         C                G
But now take your time before you grieve,
F                        C
and keep your heart hid off your sleeve,
F                       C
cause ain't no one but you deceived,
Am                G
your sympathy is soon to leave.
         C                 G
And now hide your mouth before you speak,
F                   C
or better yet just turn a cheek
F                      C
I watch your interest growin' weak,
F                      C
but still you say that I'm the freak
       Em           G        C
and I guess that's fine with me.

C                                           Em
And when she wakes her head don't cease to pain,
                                        Am
body's broken and her clothes are torn away,
                                 G
still the threat of emptiness remains,
                                    C
s she struggles to her feet to get away.
                           Em
'Hell, where has my child gone',
                                      Am
she screams as she runs from room to room.
                               G
Every sound of silence lingers on,

not a single kick inside her womb.
         F               C              Am         G   
And her mind drowns into shadows, mama falls back down,
C                               G                Am        G
where the walls that shape her world seem taller from the ground.
     C                                        G
And no more breath to scream her throat just drifts away,
F                    C               Am        G
and no more life to lose as if there were to save.


Refrain:
         C                G
But now take your time before you grieve,
F                        C
and keep your heart hid off your sleeve,
F                       C
cause ain't no one but you deceived,
Am                G
your sympathy is soon to leave.
         C                 G
And now hide your mouth before you speak,
F                   C
or better yet just turn a cheek
F                      C
I watch your interest growin' weak,
F                      C
but still you say that I'm the freak
       Em           G        C
and I guess that's fine with me.
