D No, I really couldnít stay
Bm F# What with all of these meetings to make
G A I keep waking up naked, clawed up, and
D Asore in a goddessís bed every day
D Iíll take part of the blame
Bm F# If I seem a little lost in a daze
G AEvery time I think I got my feet on the ground
DI look down
Aand the ground moves away
BmIt goes shaking away
A GI look down and the ground moves away
Bm D Why the hell would I want any money?
Bm D With all these acres of anger to farm,
Bm DA quiet understanding with manhood, and
Em A a fist full of feathers and yarn?
Em F# GIím wading over the Wateree
Em F# G To lay me down in the shade of the trees
A D In the shade of the trees
DIíve been speaking in tongues
Bm F#With the breath of gods in my lungs
G AIíve been channeling Ponce de Leon
D ASwallowing sunlight, and coming undone
DI remember how tenderness tastes
Bm F#I can still see the smile on her face
G AWhen she spotted me drunk on the trunk of the car
D Ain Kentucky on the day of the race
BmLaughing "My, what a waste!"
A GHowling "My, what a pitiful waste!"
Bm DWhy the hell would I want any whiskey?
Bm D When I done shot out the lights on the street
Bm DWith a kerosene lantern in one hand and
Em AThe mysteries of manhood clamped in my teeth
Em F# GIím wading over the Wateree
Em F# G To lay me down in the shade of the trees
A D In the shade of the trees
(Solo) D D Bm A D D D Bm A G
DIn the dark at the top of the stairs
Bm F#We were way to wasted to care
G AOur naivetť beaded like sweat on the walls,
D A hell, it hung like honey in the air
DBut, hey, whatís a memory or two
Bm F#In the cycle of planets and moons?
G AIf I came here to claim the lifeless remains
D Aof my wildest dreams, I should know what to do
BmI ought to know what to do
A GI should know what to do
Bm F#Why the hell would I want Marijuana?
G AWith all these mountains of madness to move
Bm F#When the Martian marauders come marching
Gthey'll march without manhood
Astuck to their shoes
Em F# GIím wading over the Wateree
Em F# G To lay me down in the shade of the trees
A D In the shade of the trees
