SECOND VERSE:

A [Am]black sheep [C]boy grows [F]horns,  [C]
breathing [G]smoke through his [Dm]microphone.
The airwave[Dm]s stretch and they groan, bleeding, birthing his black diapason.

SECOND CHORUS:

He says
“there’s [C]plenty of things to [G]wear when you [Dm]come to [F]me,
every [C]color of [G]sleeve to be [Dm]rolled.
There are millions [C]of rolling [G]eyes that still [Dm]cling to [F]me.
Every [C]language of [G]king is con[Dm]cerned.

BRIDGE:

So why[Am]
did you bawl[Dm]
from the [G]spell of some [D]old holy [A]song
that some [G]liar laughed [D]as he com[A]posed,
some [G]liar I [D]loved to con[A]trol?”

playing*

A [Am]black sheep [C]boy dis[F]solves [Am]
in hot [C]cream, in [F]sweet moans,[Am]
in each [C]dead bed and [F]empty home, [Am]
in each [C]seething bact[F]erium.    [Am]

Killing [C]softly and [F]serial,
he lifts his [C]head, handsome,[G] horned, magi[Dm]sterial.
He's the [C]smell of the [G]moonlight wis[Dm]teria.
He’s the [C]thrill of the [G]abeced[Dm]arian.
(See the [C]muddy hoof[G]prints where he [Dm]carried yo
THIRD CHORUS:

And there’s [C]plenty of ways to [G]claim his [Dm]crimes to[F]night,
and there’s [C]plenty of things to [G]do on his [Dm]dime.
And there’s [C]plenty of ways to [G]wear his [Dm]hide ton[F]ight.

You’ve got [C]your[G]s and I’ve got [Dm]mine.
You’ve got [C]your[G]s and I’ve got [Dm]mine.
OUTRO:

So why [Dm]
did you flee? [Am]
Don’t you [G]know you can’t [D]leave his con[A]trol
only [G]call all his [D]wild works your [A]own?
So come [G]back and we’ll [D]take them all [A]on.
So come [G]back to your [D]life on the [A]lam.
So come [G]back to your [D]old black sheep [A]man.

He says
“I am [G]waiting on [D]hoof and on [A]hand.
I am [G]waiting, all [D]hated and [A]damned.
I am [G]waiting, I [D]snort and I [A]stamp.
I am [G]waiting, you [D]know that I [A]am, [D]
calmly [G]waiting to [D]make you my [A]lamb”
