The Felice Brothers – Dont Wake The Scarecrow tab

From:Robert Sin

Would you love me
if I told you I was born upstream?
If I told you I come from money? 
white money 
would you love me? 
would you love me? 

Well I was born down 
by a bad little river 
in a poor town 
where an indian giver 
would leave the board out 
it said boarding house 
call him Scarecrow 
he kept whores around 

And I'd go there 
I'd wait my turn on the broken stairs 
And give me the girl with the golden hair 
oh yeah 
Leave your clothes there 
on the folding chair 
and in that cold room, 
your breath would twist 
just like ghosts do 
You said call me Dorothy in red shoes 
??? the bed moved 
the bedroom 

 G                             A                                       D
Oh Tracy don't you wake that scarecrow tonight 

well the men would come in 
It's hard living right 
getting ahead 
when the sad days of winter have set in 
and the medicine 
for a mannequin 
is heroin 

I'd find you there in the bath 
we'd cook up your shit in a tin can 
and you started calling me tin man 
and we made plans 
to begin again 
begin again 
you saved the C note 
told me you felt like a sea gull 
told me to meet at the depot 
with the needles 
and baby we'd go 
to Reno 

where you'd be my desert dove 
and we'd find a way to make better love 
said baby that's how the west was won 
in the blood red sun yeah 
the blood red sun 
in the blood red... 

G                               A                         D
Tracy don;t you wake that Scarecrow tonight 

Well the man cries 
who gives a damn when a tramp dies 
but I loved you there in the lamplight 
with your bare thighs 
and the halo 
of your hairline 
and all my life long 
I'll never shake off your silent song 
and all of your talk about dying young 
with an iron lung 
and that crazy way 
you said son 
G                            A                              D
I think I might stay here w' Scarecrow tonight 
Son I think I'm gonna stay here w' Scarecrow tonight
