The Table

Beautiful South

 CGAm
This table has four sturdy legs
 CGAm
A heart of very near wild oak
 FGCAm
When others would have screamed out loud my friend
F G C C (let ring)
This one never even spoke

CHORUS

 FGCAm
I've been sat upon oohh, I've been spat upon oohh
 F
I've been treated like a bed
 G
Been carried like a stretcher,
 Am
when someone thinks they're dead
 FGCAm
I've been dined upon oohh, I've been wined upon oohh
 F
I've been taken for a fool
 G
 Taken for a desk,
 C
when they should have been at school

Verse 2:

This table's been pushed against the door
When tempers, well tempers, flare at night
Banged upon with knuckles clenched my friend
When someone thinks that they are right

CHORUS
I've been sat upon, I've been spat upon
I've been treated like a bed
Been carried like a stretcher,
when someone thinks they're dead
I've been dined upon, I've been wined upon
I've been taken for a fool
Taken for a desk,
when they should have been at school

Bridge:

 CFC
 Tables only turn when tables learn
 CFG
 Put me on a bonfire, watch me burn
 CFCAm
 Treat me with some dignity, don't treat me like a slave
 CFGC
Or I'll turn into the coffin in your grave

CHORUS
I've been sat upon, I've been spat upon
I've been treated like a bed
Been carried like a stretcher,
when someone thinks they're dead
I've been dined upon, I've been wined upon
I've been taken for a fool
Taken for a desk,
when they should have been at school

Bridge:

Tables only turn when tables learn
Put me on a bonfire, watch me burn
Treat me with some dignity, don't treat me like a slave
Or I'll turn into the coffin in your grave
