The Handsome Family
C
            C
When they closed the last shopping mall
          F                 C
Crickets sang in crumbling walls
          Am              Dm
Termites ate through the doors
             G
And rabbits hopped along the floors

            C
The empty shelves swarmed with bees
         F               C
Cash machines sprouted weeds
          Am                 Dm
Lizards crawled the parking lot
           G
Swallows flew the empty shops

               Am           Dm           G
And there was peace in the valley once again

  C                       F          C        Am       Dm           G
|-3-3-3--3-3--5-3---------------------------3-5---3-------------------------1-|

[Harmonica arr. for guitar]

            C
Plants grew up the mannequins
           F               C
Painting them with leafy skin
               Am                Dm
Their plastic eyes fell to the floor
                  G
And were carried off by wild boars

         C
All the mirrors cracked in half
           F               C
When wild horses galloped past
              Am                Dm
And mourning doves built their nests
        G
On the escalator steps

               Am           Dm           G
And there was peace in the valley once again
               Am           Dm           G
And there was peace in the valley once again

C
