Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

In A Sweater Poorely Knit  Mewithoutyou

[F]   [E]   [Am]    [C]                                                                                   

F E x 2
[F]In a sweater poorly knit, and an unsuspectin[E]g smile
[E]Little Moses drifts downstream in the N[F]ile
[F]A fumbling reply -- an awkward, rigid [E]laugh
[E]I'm carried helpless by my floating basket [F]raft
[F]Your flavor in my mind swings back and forth[E] between
E (lightly) F
sweeter than any wine, and bitter as mustard green
[F]Light and dark as honeydew and pumpernic[E]kle bread
[E]The trap I set for you seems to have caught my leg i[A]nstead

Am C x 4

(same as first one)
As you plow some other field and try and forget my name,
see what harvest yields, and, supposing I'd do the same
I planted rows of peas, but by the first week of july –
they should have come up to my knees but they were maybe ankle high

Take the fingers from your flute to weave your colored yarns,
and boil down your fruit to preserves in mason jars
But now books are overdue and the goats are underfedÂ…
the trap I set for you seems to have caught my leg instead

Am C x 4

[Am]AH!   [C]       x4

(same as first)
You're A door-without-A-key, A field-without-A-fence

You made a holy fool of me, and I've thanked you ever since
If she comes circling back, we'll end where we'd begun
Like two pennies on the train track the train crushed into one

Or if I'm a crown without a king, if I'm a broken, open seed
If I come without a thing, I come with all I need
No boat out in the blue, no place to rest your head
(quiet dont play)
The trap I set for you seems to have caught my leg instead

[Am]  AH! [C]         x8

[Am]I  do not[C] exist x3 Am C x3
[Am]I  do not[C] exist
[Am]only YOU exist   [C]
[Am]I  do not[C] exist
[Am]I  do not[C] exist x3 Am C x3
Am C over and over until end.
