Jacob Marleys Chain  Aimee Mann

[Bb]   [Am]   [C]  [Em]                             
Well, t[Am]oday a [Em7sus4/B]friend told me this [C]sorry [D]tale
As he stood there trembling and turning pale
He said each day's harder to get on the scale sort of
[Bb]Like Jacob [Am]Marley's [C]chain  [Em]

But it's n[Am]ot like[Em7sus4/B] life's such a [C]veil of [D]tears
It's just full of thoughts that act as souvenirs
For those tiny blunders made in yesteryears
That com[Bb]prise Jacob [Am]Marley's [C]chain  [Em]

Well, I [Bb]had a little [Am]metaphor to [F]state my [G]case
It encompassed the condition of the human race
But to [Cm]my dis[Bb]may, it left with[F]out a t[C]race
[Bb]Except for the [Am]sound of Jacob [D]Marley's [E7]chain.

Am Em7sus4/B C D 3x
[Bb]   [Am]   [C]  [Em]                             
Now there [Am]is no[Em7sus4/B] story left for [C]me to t[D]ell
So I think I'd rather just go on to hell
Where there's a snowball's chance that the personnel
Might help to [Bb]carry Jacob [Am]Marley's [C]chain [Em]
Down to carry Jacob Marley's chain
Down to [Am]carry Jacob [Em7sus4/B]Marley's c[C]hain [D]

Am Em7sus4/B C D 2x
[Bb]   [Am]   [C]  [Em]
