The Handsome Family
[Intro]

G

[Verse]

           G                     C             G
There's a fish in my stomach a thousand years old
        G          Em          C           D
Can't swim a full circle, the water's too cold
           Em         C           G F#/G      Em
Burnt out cars in my fingers, conveyor belts flow, 
      C            Am             C  D         G
right angles and steam whistles, nothing can grow


[Verse]

   G                         C         G
A big-antlered deer stepping into the road,
    G        Em             C            D
A beautiful woman with her head in the stove
     Em           C     G F#/G      Em
The skyscr*pers crumble heavy with rats
     C              Am             C  D        G
The wind's full of beer cans and whiffle ball bats

[Chorus]

     D                             C            G
The endless sea of traffic lights never make a sound 
      D                             C               G
Like Ben Franklin's electric kite crashing to the ground 
         C          Am         C          D        G
and the Winnebago skeletons beneath this bankrupt town

[Solo]

G C G Em C G F#/G Em C Am C D G

[Verse]

      G                          C           G
This fish in my stomach wears a full length mink,
          G              Em         C          D
But his teeth float in sherry in a jar by the sink
          Em         C       G  F#/G  Em
He's the withered remains of Rin Tin Tin 
 C              Am       C   D      G
Taking his new Cadillac out for a spin

[Chorus]

     D                             C            G
The endless sea of traffic lights never make a sound 
      D                             C               G
Like Ben Franklin's electric kite crashing to the ground 
         C          Am         C          D        G
and the Winnebago skeletons beneath this bankrupt town

[Coda]
