The Statue Got Me High  They Might Be Giants




















The s[G]tatue g[F]ot me h[D]igh
The s[G]tatue g[F]ot me h[D]igh
The m[G]onume[F]nt of gr[C]anite s[D]ent a b[C]eam i[Em]nto my e[D]ye
The s[G]tatue m[F]ade me d[D]ie
The s[G]tatue m[F]ade me d[D]ie
It t[G]ook my h[F]and it ki[C]lled me a[D]nd it s[Em]ent me t[F]o the s[G]ky

Chorus:
The s[Em]tone it ca[C]lled to [D]me
(And n[G]ow I s[Em]ee the th[C]ings the s[Em]tone has s[C]hown [C]to m[D]e) [D]
A r[Em]ock that s[C]poke a w[D]ord
(An [G]anim[Em]ated m[C]iner[Em]al it [C]can [C]be he[D]ard[D])
And t[Em]hough I o[C]nce prefe[D]rred a h[G]uman b[C]eing's c[Em]ompan[D]y
They p[Em]ale bef[C]ore the m[D]onoli[G]th that t[C]owers o[Em]ver [D]me

Verse 2:
The statue got me high
The statue got me high
The truth is where the sculptor's chisel chipped away the lie
The statue made me fry
The statue made me fry
My coat contained a furnace where there used to be a guy

Chorus 2:
The stone it called to me
(And now I see the things the stone has shown to me)
A rock that spoke a word
(An animated mineral it can be heard)
And as the screaming fire engine siren filled the air
The evidence had vanished from my charred and smoking chair

Post Chorus 1:
And w[Em]hat they f[D]ound was j[G]ust a s[C]tatue
[Em]Standing [D]where the s[G]tatue [D]got me [C]high  [D]
And w[Em]hat they f[D]ound was j[G]ust a s[C]tatue
[Em]Standing [D]where the s[G]tatue [D]got me [G]high

Sax Solo:

Chorus 3:
And now it is your turn

(Your turn to see the stone and then your turn to burn)
The stone it calls to you
(You can't refuse to do the things it tells you to)
And as the screaming fire engine siren fills the air
The evidence will vanish from your charred and smoking chair

Post Chorus 2:
And what they found was just a statue
Standing where the statue got me high
And what they'll find is just a statue
Standing where the statue got you high
