The Statue Got Me High

They Might Be Giants

 GFD
The statue got me high
 GFD
The statue got me high
 GFCDCEmD
The monument of granite sent a beam into my eye
 GFD
The statue made me die
 GFD
The statue made me die
 GFCDEmFG
It took my hand it killed me and it sent me to the sky

Chorus:
 EmCD
The stone it called to me
 GEmCEmCCDD
(And now I see the things the stone has shown to me)  
 EmCD
A rock that spoke a word
 GEmCEmCCDD
(An animated mineral it can be heard)
 EmCDGCEmD
And though I once preferred a human being's company
 EmCDGCEmD
They pale before the monolith that towers over 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:
 EmDGC
And what they found was just a statue
 EmDGDCD
 Standing where the statue got me high   
 EmDGC
And what they found was just a statue
 EmDGDG
 Standing where the statue got me 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
