Burn and Shine

Chords by:  Justin Makeig (makeig@nwu.edu)


G#m  F#       E
     Burn and shine, son
G#m      F#        E
     And keep your spirit clean
G#m      F#      E
     For this is not
               G#m  F#  Eb
     A dress rehersal

Junior Phoenix
With your ash-filled eyes
Who will harbor
Your misfortune

     G#m              D#
Your mother says your father says
   B                 E
He does not want to tell you
   G#m   F#     E
As if he didn't know you

Behind the lighthouse
There's still the hole you made
Better fill it in
Or it will get you

So talcum powder
Is now your closest friend
Smooth and white
And ordinary

Your father says your mother says
She does not want to tell you
As if she didn't know you

B                     C#
And in the dream everyone is holding hands
     E              F#
in a circle and you heal

Do you remember
The taste of pemmican?
Then say hello
To Hiawatha

She's still frowning
At your puffy face
Overweight
And barely breathing?

No one ever said a word
They did not want to tell you
As if they didn't know you
As if they didn't know you
As if they didn't know you

Burn and shine
You burn and shine...
