Subject: Crd. for "Eat for Two"

Eat for Two by 10,000 Maniacs
from the album 10,000 Maniacs Unplugged


This is definitely one of the hardest songs I've ever learned to play.
Best of luck 
with it!

It's difficult because of the chords :


Fm      XX3111
Eb/G    XX3121
Eb      X43121
Cm      X3554X
Ab      466544
Db/F    X43121
Bbm7    X1312X
C7      X32310

Definitely not a three chord song!

there's also this Fm7omit3rd chord : XX354X


Intro Fm7omit3rd


          Fm                  Eb/G  Eb         Cm                     Ab
Db/F
        Oh, baby blankets and baby shoes, baby slippers, baby spoons, walls
of baby

        Db   Fm            Eb/G  Eb        Cm              Ab  Db/F     Db
        blue.  Dream child in my head is a nightmare born in a borrowed bed

              Ab    Cm                      Bbm7      Db     Ab
        Now I know, lightning strikes again.              It struck me once,

      Cm               Bbm7  Db         Ab                 Bbm      C7
        then struck me dead.   My folly grows inside of me          I

       Fm                                                Fm7omit3rd
        eat for two, walk for two, breathe for two now.

        Fm                                         Fm7omit3rd
        eat for two, walk for two, breathe for two now.


(the next verses follow this same pattern of chords so I'm only going to
type out the
lyrics)

        Well, the egg man fell down off his shelf
        All the good king's men with all their help
        Struggled 'til the end
        For a shell they couldn't mend

        You know where this will lead
        to hush and rock in the nursery
        for the kicking one inside of me.

        I eat for two, walk for two, breathe for two now
        I eat for two, walk for two, breathe for two now

        When the boy was a boy, and a girl was a girl
        and they found each other in a wicked world
        strong in some respects but she couldn't stand for the way he begged

        And gave in.  Pride is for men.
        Young girls should run and hide instead.
        Risk the game by taking dares with "yes"

        Eat for two, walk for two, breathe for two now.
        eat for two, walk for two, breathe for two now

        Fm7
Fm7omit3
        Walk for two?   I'm stumbling.  Breathe for two?  I...I can't breathe.

                          Fm7
        I can't breathe

        Fm                         no chord
        Five months, how it grows, five months now, I begin to show.
