Vic Chesnutt – Rips In The Fabric chords

C   F   G  x3

[Verse 1]
C F GShe was walking down the sidewalk
C F GSniffing swiftly in the wind
C F GThinking of everything and nothing
C F GJust another flighty human being
C F GAnd satellites where arcing
C F GUndetected overhead
C F GHer cells were busy splitting
C F GAnd jettisoning the dead
F G C FBeauty is as beauty does
C GIn the eyes of the beholder
F COr collectively in all of us
[Instrumental] C F G x2 [Verse 2]
C F GShe was waving to a cyclist
C F GAs he went coasting by
C F GThrough a lazy intersection
C F GTowards the remainder of his life
C F GAnd a feral cat went diving
C F GBehind a dumpster there
C F GWhich displaced a big brown rat
C F GThat went fleeing with a comical flair
F G C FWe are trapped, but we are free
C GTo go through the motions
F CAnd be just as happy as we can be.
[Instrumental] C F G x2 [Verse 3]
C F GAnd later on I held her
C F GIn my skinny arms
C F GMy chapped lips were whispering
C F GEsoteric alarms
C F GBut her warm breath assuaged me
C F GAnd the music returned
C F GOur dancing continued
C F GWhile big forest fires burned
F G C FSpace is spooky and time is a trip
C GDon't let the preachers and teachers and hipsters fool you
F CThere ain't no rips in the fabric.
