Coconut Skins

Damien Rice


This is the correct tablature! The timing can be heard when you listen to the song. It's pretty simple strum pattern once you get it down, thumb-picking the bass notes and with the fingers. On the left hand(for rightties), the 1st and 2nd fingers do all the while the 3rd and 4th are stationary for the whole song. Tuning is standard.

You can hold her hand
And show her how you cry
Explain to her your weakness
So she understands:
And then roll over and die!

You can brave decisions
Before you crumble up inside
Spend your time asking
Everyone else's permission:
And then run away and hide!

You can sit on chimneys
And put some fire up your ass!
No need to know
What you're doing or waiting for:
But if anyone should ask?
Tell them I've been licking coconut skins
And we've been hanging out!
Tell them God just dropped by to forgive our sins
And relieve us our doubt

You can hold her eggs
But your basket has a hole
You can lie between her legs
And go lookin' for:
Tell her you're searching for her soul!

You can wait for ages
And watch your compost turn to coal
But time is contagious:
Everybody's getting old.

You can sit on chimneys
And put some fire up your ass!
No need to know
What you're doing or waiting for:
But if anyone should ask?
Tell them I've been cooking coconut skins
And we've been hanging out!
Tell them God just dropped by to forgive our sins
And relieve us our doubt.
