                INTRO:
G G/B [alternate picking]

VERSE 1:
G       D     G
Lovely Mary Sweeney, 
     C              G
the famous window smasher
            C                  G
Was just a quiet school marm - Oh de lay ee ee
        D        G
from Lacrosse, Wisconsin

VERSE 2:
     G      D        G
She took a pinch of cocaine 
     C            G
but only for her nerves
  C             G
Laudanum for trembling hands, 
                 D      G   G7
a little bottle in her purse

CHORUS:
            C
She was a woodpecker, 
        G
she couldn't help but see
C
All the things that hide 
        D               G
inside all the pretty trees

VERSE 3:
   G         D       G
At dusk she took a train 
        C             G
just a hammer in her bag
                C            G
She went from town to town - Oh de lay ee ee
                D       G   G7
smashing every pane of glass

PRE-CHORUS:
  C                     G
Storefronts, mirrors, windshields 
  C                G
shattered in the night
   C                G
A hammer through a window's gleam 
            D           G G7
filled the air with light

CHORUS:
            C
She was a woodpecker, 
        G
she couldn't help but free
C
All the things that hide 
        D               G
inside all the pretty trees

INTERLUDE:
G D G C G C G D G

CHORUS:
            C
She was a woodpecker, 
        G
she couldn't help but free
C
All the things that hide 
        D               G
inside all the pretty trees

VERSE 4:
G       D        G
In the state asylum 
        C             G
the windows caged in bars
        C             G
They soaked her in an ice-cold bath 
              D       G G7
till she was seeing stars

PRE-CHORUS:
  C                     G
Wrapped up in her straitjacket 
     C                  G
her mind still hammered on
           C                         G
Till the glass inside her smashed - Oh de lay ee ee
                  D          G G7
and she flew off into the trees

CHORUS:
            C
She was a woodpecker, 
        G
she couldn't help but see
C
All the things that hide 
        D               G
inside all the pretty trees
