Album: Castawys and Cutouts
Song: Leslie Anne Levine
[E] [CM7] [D]
[E]My name is Leslie Anne Le[CM7]vine.[D]
[E]My mother birthed me down a [CM7]dry ravine.[D]
[E]My mother birthed me [CM7]far to so[D]on.
[E]Born at nine and dead at [A]noon.[D]
[A]Fifteen years gone now, I still wander this
[C#]parapet and shake my rattle bone.
[A]Fifteen years gone now, I still cling to the
[C#]petticoats of the [C]girl who [Bb]died with [E]me.[CM7] [D]
On the roofs above the streets,
the only love I've known to chimney sweep.
lost and lodged inside a flue
back in eighteen forty-two.
Fifteen years gone now, I still wail from these
catacombs and curse my mother's name.
Fofteen years gone now, still a wastrel
mesallied has brought this fate on me.
My name is Leslie Anne Levine
and I've got no one left to mourn for me.
My body lies inside it's grave
in a ditch not far away.
