They Might Be Giants
Here's "Dead"; these are the chords I use on the piano, and I think they're
the same as the recording.


DEAD (by They Might Be Giants)
------------------------------
[Each chord is half a measure, except "X - Y" is a half measure TOTAL.]
F            Bb  -  C
I returned a bag of groceries
F          Bb -  C       F                Bb - C     F       F
Accidently taken off the shelf before the expiration date
F                Bb     C
I came back as a bag of groceries
F          Bb -  C       F                Bb    -      C    F      F7
Accidently taken off the shelf before the date stamped on myself

Bb               Gm               Gm            Gm               Bb
Did a large procession wave their torches as my head fell in the basket
        Gm        C              C7
And was everybody dancing on the casket?
F                     Bb                 C                    C
   Now it's over, I'm dead and I haven't done anything that I want
       F                       Bb   -    C       F    C7
Or I'm still alive and there's nothing I want to do

I will never say the  word "procrastinate" again
I'll never see myself in the mirror with my eyes closed
I didn't apologize or when I was eight
And I made my younger brother have to be my personal slave

Did a large procession...   ...nothing I want to do

F          Bb          F       Bb
So I won't sit at home anymore and you won't
F              Bb         F           Bb
See my head in the window and I won't be around
F       Bb               F               Bb          C   -   C7
Ever anymore and I'll be up there on the wall at the store

I returned the bag of groceries...   ...stamped on myself

Did a large procession...   ...nothing I want to do
