[Verse 1]
G          C            G          C
My lover left me, she left me too soon.
G               C                  G          C
  I shouldn't blame her, for the state of my room.
G           C          G          C
I started stumbling, chasing the bells.
     G             C                    G              C
The metal straps upon my knees made this sound when I fell
 D
You heard those words from your peers
                       G   C   G   C   G   C   G   C
I was just your volunteer.

[Verse 2]
    G           C              G              C
We love uncle Georgie, uncle Georgie's our friend.
     G              C             G            C
He spends his life fishing, washes dishes weekends.
        D
And I tried to say something sincere
                      G   C   G   C   G   C   G   C
Sign me up I'll volunteer.

[Verse 3]
G          C           G           C
My Father left us, he left us too soon.
G                   C                 G                C
I thought he'd say something, but he waltzed from the room.
G        C             G           C
All I remember is my hands at my sides.
     G         C         G             C
The face of a woman who once was his bride.
D
All that he left us was tears
                             G   C   G   C
And a couple of lonely volunteers.
D
All that he left her was tears
                              G   C   G   C   G   C   G   C   G   C   G   C
And a couple of lonely volunteers.

[Verse 4]
         G               C          G           C
Now we look for sister Mary, sister Mary's the pale.
      G              C                G              C
She holds her head sometimes and walks close to the rail.
      G          C        G            C
She sings on a Sunday, stands in the stairs.
G              C                      G          C
Haunts me at night time when I've forgotten my prayers.
D
We don't see much of her here
                        G   C   G   C   G   C   G   C
That winter-weary volunteer.

{Verse 5]
G              C          G             C
Captains need order it helps them stay sane.
G                C                 G              C
Plumbers hate slaughter, 'cause it f**ks up the drains.
G              C                G           C
Hard hats must be worn at all times on the site.
G             C                   G            C
It makes no difference if you're lost in the light.
     D
The men here have lost their careers
                              G   C   G   C   G   C   G   C
And they don't talk to volunteers.

[Verse 6]
G              C           G           C
How your life cuts me, it cuts to my bone.
     G                C                  G           C
We pretend that it's nothing, when we're on our way home.
       D
And I wish you'd abandon me here
                          G   C   G   C   G   C   G   C   G   C   G
So I could be your volunteer.
