"hand o ver that rabbit fur coat"...


((repeat the same thing for the rest of the verses))


<>


[C]I was [Am]of poor [C]folk,[Am]
but my [C]mother had a [Am]rabbit fur [D]coat.[G]
And a [G]girl of less [G]character pushed her [C]down the LA [C]river.
"Hand [C]over that [G]rabbit fur [C]coat"[Am]   [C]  [Am]
She put a[C] knife [Am]to her[C] throat[Am]
'Hand [C]over that [Am]rabbit fur [D]coat' [G]
When my[G] ma re[G]fused, the girl kicked [C]dirt on her [C]blouse.
"Stay [C]away from my [G]mansion h[C]ouse."[Am]   [C]  [Am]
My [C]mother really [Am]suffered for [C]that.[Am]
Spent her [C]life in a [Am]gold plated [D]body [G]cast.
[G]Now, you [G]ask, did she [C]get that girl [C]back?
She [C]payed a visit to that [G]mansion [C]house[Am].  [C]  [Am]
She knew the [C]girl [Am]was not [C]there,[Am]
but her [C]father was in [Am]cufflinks with [D]slicked-back black [G]hair
He i[G]nvited her[G] in. They never[C] sang a[G] note,
but she [C]took off that [G]rabbit fur [C]coat.[Am]   [C]  [Am]
And [C]who do you [Am]think came [C]home?[Am]
[C]Miss [Am]So and [D]So  [G]
She took one [G]look at my [G]mama and [C]what did she [C]say?
"Why are you [C]stealing from my [G]mansion [C]house?"
"No, I'm in [C]love with Mr. [Am]So and [C]So [Am]
He [C]invited me [Am]in. I'm a [D]girl no [G]more."
[G]Then she [G]dragged my ma [C]out by her [C]throat.
"Hand [C]over that [G]rabbit fur [C]coat."[Am]   [C]  [Am]
[C]Let's move ahead [Am]twenty years, [C]shall we? [Am]
She was [C]waitressing on [Am]welfare. We were [D]living in the [G]Valley.
A lady [G]says to my [G]ma "you treat your [C]girl as your [C]spouse.
You can [C]live in a [G]mansion [C]house."
[C]And [Am]so we[C] did,[Am]
and [C]I became a [Am]hundred-thousand-[D]dollar [G]kid.
G G C (strum once (pause)
When I was old enough to realize; wiped the dust from my mother's eyes...
It's all [C]this for that [G]rabbit fur [C]coat. [Am]   [C]   [Am]

But [C]I'm not [Am]bitter a[C]bout it  [Am]
I've [C]packed up my [Am]things and let [D]them have [G]at it,
and the [G]fortune [G]faded, as fort[C]unes often [C]do,
and [C]so did that [G]mansion [C]house. [Am]   [C]  [Am]

Where m[C]y ma is [Am]now, I don't [C]know.[Am]
She was [C]living in her [Am]car. I was [D]living on the [G]road,
and I[G] hear she's [G]putting that [C]stuff up her [C]nose,
and still [C]wearing that [G]rabbit fur [C]coat.[Am]    [C]  [Am]
But [C]mostly I'm a [Am]hypo[C]crite [Am]
I sing [C]songs about the [Am]defec[D]it,  [G]
but when I [G]sell out and leave [G]Omaha,
C C (strum, pause)
what will I get?
a mansion [C]house and a [G]rabbit fur [C]coat.  [C]


:D The End. this song is amazing.
