The Squirming Coil
~From: Eric Berman (ericbe@microsoft.com)

    G
The Squirming Coil of sunset
  F
I keep within my reach
      C
Tried yesterday to get away
    G
and hitchhiked to the beach

G
I saw Satan on the beach
F
trying to catch a ray
   C
He wasn't quite the speed of light
        G
and the squirming coil
        Fmaj7    C            G
it got away....       It got away (4x)
