Verse 1 (N.C for most of the verse so these are implied by the melody)

(Am)               (E)                   (C)
  In a town in the woods at the top of a hill
                     (D)      
There's a house where no one lives
(F)               (C)                 (D)              (E) 
  So you take a big bag of your big city money there, and buy it
(Am)                    (E)
  Then at night when the house is dark
          (C)                 (D)
And you're all alone there's a noise upstairs
(F)              (C)                          (D)                    (E)
  At the top of the stairs there's a door so you take a deep breath and try it
        F                  C                Bm7b5           Am
And the flashlight shows you something moving just inside the door
          F                  C                D                E
There's a tattered dress and a feeling you have felt somewhere before....

Chorus

Am                          Fmaj7/C
 And there's a creepy doll,  that always follows you
G                              D G    E Am
 It's got a ruined eye, that's always open
Am                          Fmaj7/C
 And there's a creepy doll,  that always follows you
G                              D  G  E   Am    Fmaj7add11/C
 It's got a pretty mouth, to swallow you whole

Verse 2

Am                     E
 So you scream and you close the door
        C                    D
And you tell yourself it was just a dream
F                 C                        D            E
 In the morning you head into town cause you want to go antiquing
Am                      E
 In the store there's a strange old man
       C                   D
With a wandering eye and a withered hand
F                    C                      D                  E
 When he hands you the old wooden box you can hear his old bones creaking

        F                C               Bm7b5           Am
And you know what you will find inside the moment that you see
     F                 C             D                E
That someone carved your name into the tarnished silver key

Chorus

Am                          Fmaj7/C
 And there's a creepy doll,  that always follows you
G                              D G    E Am
 It's got a ruined eye, that's always open
Am                          Fmaj7/C
 And there's a creepy doll,  that always follows you
G                              D  G  E   Am   
 It's got a pretty mouth, to swallow you whole

Bridge
    F                C                Bm7b5          Am
And when you come home late the doll is waiting up for you
    F            C                   Bm7b5             Am
And when you fix a snack the doll says it would like one too
    F             G                 F              G
The doll is in your house and in your room and in your bed
    F             G                F              G                C
The doll is in your eyes and in your arms and in your head and you are crazy

Verse 3

Am                     E
 Now it's late and you head downstairs
          C                       D
Cause you just can't sleep so you make some tea
F                C                     D                     E
 And the doll disapprovingly asks if you really need that much honey
Am                      E
 You decide that you've had enough
        C                    D
And you lock the doll in the wooden box
F                     C                      D               E
 You put the box in the fireplace next to your bag of big city money
       F   )             C                 Bm7b5           Am
As the smoke fills up your tiny room there's nothing you can do
    F              C           D                 E
And far too late you see the one inside the box is you

Chorus
Am                          Fmaj7/C
 And there's a creepy doll,  that always follows you
G                              D G    E Am
 It's got a ruined eye, that's always open
Am                          Fmaj7/C
 And there's a creepy doll,  that always follows you
G                              D  G  E   Am    Fmaj7add11/C
 It's got a pretty mouth, to swallow you whole
