Astronautalis – The Wondersmith And His Sons chords

[Verse 1]
BmI am a soldier baby
BmWho works just like a slave
BmSweating through the pain of digging his foxhole that he know is just a grave
BmYou trust me don't you baby?
BmYou'd hand your life to me
BmLet's walk along the wire and watch the muzzles flash like lightning
Em BmA smile safe-crackers understand, is rendering this steady hand obsolete
Em BmYou thought you caught my slight of hand, but you could never understand
BmNo not me
[Verse 2]
BmFather was a charming man with much hidden up his sleeve
BmI wonder if this is what he planned when he taught his tricks to me
EmThe youngest was a clever boy cracking calculus by three
BmThe eldest was a practical and obsessively clean
BmThen there was me:
BmI was born a charming man with silver tongue, pearl teeth
BmThis's never how it's 'sposed to end, we're promised all we dreamed
EmThe envy of the Everyman our family seemed complete
EmOur father was a charming man, our mother a serene
BmBut now I'm on the run again - this hotel's home to me
BmThey found the other skeleton face down in the stream
EmThe youngest was still tucked in bed
EmThat way they thought he was asleep
EmThey moved the mirror from his mouth
BmThe fog that should remain was not to be seen
BmNot to be seen
[Verse 3]
BmI am the doctor darling
BmWho used to operate
BmBut I couldn't stand the pain of healing
BmOnly t'watch another woman waste away
EmYou trust me don't you baby?
EmYeah you'd hand your life to me
BmLet's set this barn on fire
BmAnd watch the flames eat up the roof beams
BmA smile safe-crackers understand
BmIs rendering this steady hand
EmYou thought I must have broken in
EmBut there's no crime in coming in
BmThey hand me the key
[Verse 4]
BmFloating on the wind again
BmOn the tail of my quarry
EmOn a woman weak for charming men
EmWho's holding what I need
BmShe'll leave her window cracked for me
BmAnd I'll draft in like the breeze
BmMy father was a charming man and I learned it all from he
EmThe brother's born a wondersmith
EmWe started as a team
BmLike complimenting cogs and gears we built a head of steam
EmThe tragic flaw of charming men
EmIs exactly as it seems
BmToo much grease
BmCan break down a machine
[Verse 5]
BmPour another round on me
EmPour another round on me
BmYou know I'm good for it
BmYou know me
EmYou know I'm good for it
EmYou know my family
[Verse 6]
BmI am a lover lady
BmWho sees just what you dream
BmI know you're going crazy living with him an' without me
EmYou trust me don't you baby?
EmYeah you'd hand your life to me
BmLet's leave this life tonight
BmAnd race the sunrise down the highway
BmA smile safe-crackers understand
BmIs rendering this steady hand
BmThe charm and confidence of men
BmCan jam the bullets in your gun
BmAnd stop heartbeats
