The Ballad Of Sweeney Todd

Misc. Soundtrack

 F#mBm-
Attend the tale of Sweeny Todd.         
His skin was pale and his eye was odd.
 F#5-C#5-B5-A5-
He shaved the faces of gentlemen 
 G#5-F#5-E5
Who never thereafter were heard of again.
 Em
 He trod a path that few have trod,
 EmA5-G#5-F#5
 Did Sweeny Todd, The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

 F#mBm-
He kept a shop in London Town         
Of fancy clients and good renown.
 F#5-C#5-B5-A5-
And what if none of their souls were saved?
 G#5-F#5-E5
They went to their maker impeccably shaved
By Sweeny, By Sweeny Todd,
 A5-G#5-F#5
The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

 F#mBm
 F#5C5
 Swing your razor wide, Sweeny,
Hold it to the skies!
 F#5-C#5-B5-D5-
 Freelflows the blood of those
 G#5
 who moralize.

 F#mBm-
His need were few, his room was bare:        
a lavabo and a fancy chair,
 F#5-C#5-B5-A5-
mug of suds and a leather strop,
 G#5-F#5-E5
An apron, a towel, a pail and a mop.
 Em
 For neatness, he deserves a nod.
 EmA5-G#5-F#5
 Does Sweeny Todd,, The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.

 F#mBm
 AD
 In conspicuous Sweeny was,
 AmA
 Quick and quite and clean 'e was.
 Em
 Back of his smile, under his word,
Sweeny heard music that nobody heard.
 A#Gm
 Sweeny pondered and Sweeny planned,
 FmA#
 Like a perfect machine 'e planned
 Fm
 Sweeny was smooth, Sweeny was subtle,
Sweeny would blink and rats would scuttle.
Sweeny was smooth, Sweeny was subtle,
Sweeny would blink and rats would scuttle.
Sweeny was smooth, Sweeny was subtle,
Sweeny would blink and rats would scuttle.
Sweeny! Sweeny! Sweeny! Sweeny!
 GmFm
 Sweeny!         

 FmF#m
 Attend the tale of Sweeney Todd  
He served a dark and a hungry god
G# (hold)
What happened then, well that's the play, And
 Gm
 He wouldn't want us to give it away.
 Fm
 Not Sweeney,
Not Sweeney Todd,
 A#5G5Fm
The demon barber of Fleet
 Fm
 Street.

Notes: the intro (and ongoing theme) is 3 beats F#m and 1 Bm
If "He shaved the faces of gentlemen" is too fast you can play every other chord"
On "swing your razer wide, Sweeney" you can play as
 F#CC#BDmG#

B|-10-13-9--7-6--4------|
