C We thought we heard a bear,
Am We turned around to run,
Em Me and my cousins one by one,
G Thought man if i had a gun,
C I'd have shot him in the head,
Am I'd of shot that big bear dead,
Em laid his skin out in the sun,
G and hang him up to dry with clothespins,
C and the town would think me brave,
Am Throw a party in my honor,
Em Mom would paint my face with deerblood,
G I'd enter like a god,
C and the bear'd be on a flagpole,
Am Wave to all the little boys and girls,
Em Come spring he would disintegrate,
G and be reborn a plumber,
C Am Em G So suddenly it seems to me, I ain't no artist, I ought to be
C Am Em GThe dirt along the ocean floor, So when it drains I'll float to shore,
C Am EmNow scathingly i'll throw the paint along my wall,
Gand fall and faint,
C Am Em G my bones will know just what to do, and by the break of dawn i will be new,
C We thought we saw a man,
Am We could not see a gun,
Em so my brother said move on,
G thought man if i had a bomb,
C I'd of blown the scoundrel up,
Am Watch his head and heart hiccup,
Em Erupt in tinsel and blue cinders
G Turn august into winter,
C And we'd build a big snowman
Am out of his pancreas and glitter,
Em Grab a scarf so he won't shiver,
G it'll keep him nice and warm,
C and the man he'd blow to heaven,
Am be among his loves and brethren,
Em in the morning he'd wake up
G to find himself reborn a bear,
C Am Em G So suddenly it seems to me, I ain't no artist, I ought to be
C Am Em GThe dirt along the ocean floor, So when it drains I'll float to shore,
C Am Em GNow joyously i'll throw the paint along the mountains, Liberate,
C Am Em G the blue all the seagulls will adore, they won't care for the fish any more,
C Am Em Gany more, any more, any more, any more,
C AmI guess i...i will wake up,
EmI'll shake this off,
GI'll call my cousins,
C Ammiss my brother my father my mother,
Em Gand my big sister in new mexico,
C Am Em Gi don't recall it was just a dream, (soft)
C Am Em Gi don't recall it was just a dream, (loud)
C Am Em but if i see a bear i hope it might come back, come back,
G might come back to me. (End on C)
