E C Put a snake on my neck and a bird on my arm. G C Got one good leg Ôcause the other went South. E C G Got a brand new crutch and a brand new mouth. 0:45 - 1:25 G C I got a sheriff's name branded where I should have kept clean. E C If you get too close you're going to know what I mean. G C And I know when I'm old the only runnin' gonna come. E C G Away from lips and the fork of my tongue. 1:26 - 1:45 D C It only gets to me in times like these. E C G And times like these are getting to me. 1:46 - 2:24 G C Put your hand in the oven there's a heaven inside. E C It burns straight through but the devil don't mind. G C Because he takes what he wants and he finds what you hide. E C G And it will buy you a place on the Lower East Side. Child 2:25 - 3:04 G C I rolled a number last night and I walked in my sleep. E C I could feel all the nerves in the tips of my teeth. G C As they crumbled into dust and washed into the sea. E C G Finally shut my mouth so I could hear myself think. 3:05 - 3:32 D C It only gets to me in times like these. D C It only gets to me in times like these. D C It only gets to me in times like these. E C And times like these are getting to me. 3:33 - end G C G C G C E C G (c)1998 Seven Mary Three Music, BMI. All rights reserved.
