High Llamas - Snowbug


[C] I just survive any way I can
[C] No guru, no method, no pension plan

[C] Your luck’s just as plain as I’m not paying attention
[C] I’m gonna take her with me in my satanic stretcher

Note: The next line I simply cannot figure out. As for the chord, however, [A7]. Then:
I [C] am! I fucking am!

And [C] now you say I’m a reprobate, well that’s okay
But you [C] wouldn’t if I, say, got paid

They [C] said you really should bear with me
Note: Another unintelligible line (to my ears at least). But we appear to be holding a [C] chord.

Note: Yet another unintelligible line. “They call me the…” Chord [A7].
[C] That’s me!
[C] That’s me!
[C] That’s me!

On [C] Christmas [D7] Day the [C] sky is [D7] full
[F] Babies [G7] wail
Through the [F] wafer [G7] wall

We [C] pene [D7] trate a [C] steepless [D7] face
Lies now a [F] bulldozed [G7] flat
This is the [F] one possible [G7] mystic act

[G7] Breakfast with [C] Bandog boy
Coffee with Collie
[Am7] Golden [Aaug] gutters where [Dm] we can [G] beg
You [G7] run to the [C] cupboard
With your [G7] hacknail and [C] drown

[C7] Wish [Dm] me [G7] dead
