Murder By Death – I Came Around chords

Chords
Transpose:
Intro: F

F A#Cars lined up the street
Dm FA procession for the thief
F A#The men were restless and the women howled
Dm FAs they professed their grief
Dm FA smoke was lying on his lips
A# CAnd in his hand a rusty flask
F DmEven in death he'd forced a smile
C FI oughta give him his dues for going out like that
Interlude: F Dm F A# Dm x2 F x2 F A# Dm A# Dm x2 F x2
F When you've walked through the valley
A#Saw the face of death
DmAnd you've paid your debts
A# Dm Well then, is there anything left
A# F Is there anything left
Dm A#When you've settled up
FIs there anything left
F A#I came to pay a false courtesy
Dm A#So you couldn't get the best of me
Dm A# FBut the grief hung in the air and mingled with the sweat
Dm A# FI presumed to know your inner workings, but I just wept
A# FI never thought much about the man
C FHe was always just drifting along
A#But a couple hours in
FWe were drunk as sin
Dm A# FI was wrong, I was wrong about him
Dm A# FI came around, I came around, I came around
F A#I took you for a hanger-on
Dm FBut the way those folks all wept
F A#You must've been doing something right
Dm FTo move the company you kept
A# FThe drinks kept coming and I loosed my tongue
Dm C And I talked a little shit
F A#But your friends just laughed and chimed right in
Dm FTelling yarns so good it made me quit
A# FI never thought much about the man
C FHe was always just drifting along
A#But a couple hours in
FWe were drunk as sin
Dm A# FI was wrong, I was wrong about him
Dm A# FI came around, I came around, I came around
A# FThe room started reeling
A# FI got the feeling I read you wrong
A# F A#Then another bottle of gin
A# F A#Break out the bar brawl again
A# F CYou were the reason for them
F A#By the time the sun was at its feet
Dm FEverybody there was pissed
F A#And I can say with some degree of certainty
Dm FThe old bastard will be missed
A# F A# CI thought your life was nothing more than one long grift
F DmNow I sit weeping by your coffin
A# FClutching a bottle in my fist
Dm A# FI came around, I came around, I came around x 6
