The Ballad Of Sweeney Todd  Misc. Soundtrack

Attend the tale of Sweeny Todd. [F#m]    [Bm]   [-]
His skin was pale and his eye was odd.
He [F#5]shaved[-] the [C#5]faces [-]of [B5]gent[-]le[A5]men[-]
Who [G#5]never [-]there[F#5]after w[-]ere [E5]heard of again.
[Em]He trod a path that few have trod,
[Em]Did Sweeny Todd, The [A5]Dem[-]on [G#5]Barber [-]of [F#5]Fleet Street

He kept a shop in London Town [F#m]    [Bm]   [-]
Of fancy clients and good renown.
And [F#5]what [-]if [C#5]none of t[-]heir [B5]souls [-]were [A5]sav[-]ed?
They [G#5]went to [-]their [F#5]maker[-] im[E5]peccably shaved
By Sweeny, By Sweeny Todd,
The [A5]Dem[-]on [G#5]Barber [-]of [F#5]Fleet Street

[F#m]    [Bm]                                 
[F#5]Swing your razor wide, [C5]Sweeny,
Hold it to the skies!
[F#5]Freel[-]y [C#5]flows [-]the [B5]bloo[-]d of [D5]tho[-]se
[G#5]who moralize.

His need were few, his room was bare:[F#m]    [Bm]   [-]
a lavabo and a fancy chair,
A [F#5]mug [-]of [C#5]suds a[-]nd a [B5]leat[-]her [A5]str[-]op,
An [G#5]apron[-], a [F#5]towel[-], a [E5]pail and a mop.
[Em]For neatness, he deserves a nod.
[Em]Does Sweeny Todd,, The [A5]Dem[-]on [G#5]Barber [-]of [F#5]Fleet Street.

[F#m]    [Bm]                                 
[A]In conspicuous [D]Sweeny was,
[Am]Quick and quite and [A]clean 'e was.
[Em]Back of his smile, under his word,
Sweeny heard music that nobody heard.
[A#]Sweeny pondered and [Gm]Sweeny planned,
[Fm]Like a perfect [A#]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!
[Gm]Sweeny!        [Fm]

[Fm]Attend the tale of Sweeney Todd [F#m]
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,
The [A#5]demon [G5]barber of [Fm]Fleet
[Fm]Street.

Notes: the intro (and ongoing theme) is 3 beats F#m and 1 Bm
