Youll Only End Up Joining Them
 by Kevin Devine

capo on 5th fret

there's a riff that i tabed out between the F and Dm relative to the capo
 (i noted it)

C                                       F   
Tonight I'm posed and popping like a peacock
               Dm                                 G
I'm pressing flesh, I'm smiling big, my spinning head sings "Stop, just stop"
             F               G
Cause what used to calm me down
              E               Am
Just rips my life to ribbons now
             F                 G                   C
So I keep smiling, I find my window and quick cut out

   C                                        F
These days my hangman's hunger makes my gut kick
My sleeping mind, could map it blind
A flask, A key, A bag, A fifth
         F               G
I try to will myself away
              E                      Am
While shouting habits plead their case
            F                     G
So when the sun sears through my eyes
             E                Am
My beggar's brain can't compromise
              F                 G                   C
I splash cold water, I draw the curtains, I stay inside

            C7               E7                     Am     G     F(riff)Dm
And I can't say that it's a sickness, more like a stranger I ask in
           C7             E7
And later realize, was a strangler
         Am     G        F(riff)Dm
Slipping nooses in my den
          F           G                       E               Am
But I was lonely so I asked him, "*Could* you tie that one on me?"
          F                G                C
It wasn't his fault, I was eager, and I was weak

        C7                E7
So as I inch towards resolution
            Am          G         F(riff)Dm
Yea I'm not sure which life feels right
         C7                  E7
A narrow noose or the wading water
            Am          G      F(riff)Dm
The hanging head, sore open eyes
           F               G
my brother michael he went one way
           E                 Am
And at the fork I heard him say
           F               G             C
"Don't you follow, don't go making my mistakes"
      F                  G
And I realized what he meant
              E                   Am
Don't kill yourself to raise the dead
         F                G               C
It never works you'll only end up joining them

end on C
