Beastie  Jethro Tull

Gb5 - F5 - Gb5  Ab5 - F5 

[F5]From early days of infancy,
through tre[Db5]mbling years of youth,
long m[Ab5]urky middle-age and final ho[Bb5]urs
long in the [Eb5]tooth,
he is the h[F5]undred names of terror -creature you love the least.
Pic[Db5]ture his name before you and [Eb]exor[F5]cise the [Cb5]beast.
[F5]Eb A             F5   (REST THE SAME)
He roved up and down through history --- spectre 

with tales to tell. In the darkness when the
campfire's dead --- to each his private hell. If you look 

behind your shoulder as you feel his eyes to feast, you
can witness now the everchanging nature of the beast.
Beastie F5 Db5 Bb5 Db5 x3 F5 Db5 Bb5 Db5 Cb5
If you wear a warmer sporran, you can keep the foe at
bay. You can pop those pills and visit some
psychiatrist who'll say --- There's nothing I can do 

for you, everywhere's a danger zone. I'd love to help
get rid of it, but I've got one of my own.
There's a beast upon my shoulder and a fiend upon
my back. Feel his burning breath a heaving, smoke
oozing from his stack. And he moves beneath the
covers or he lies below the bed. He's the beast upon
your shoulder. He's the price upon your head. He's
the lonely fear of dying, and for some, of living too.
He's your private nightmare pricking. He'd just love
to turn the screw. So stand as one defiant --- yes, and 

let your voices swell. Stare that beastie in the face
and really give him hell.
