Sleepytime in the Western World  Blitzen Trapper

D G(open)
Your eyelids are made of lead
[F#7] You can't keep them [Bm]up
C G(barre)
Cause its sleepytime
And [F1]that's no [Eb]crime in the [Bb/D]western wo[C7]rld
Cause when the sun goes down
Youíre bound to follow [Eb]through
Sleeping through the a[Bb/D]fternoon
I [F2]just can't [Eb]seem to [Bb/D]leave my [C7]room
Waiting [Eb]for the moon and a [Bb/D]love so true
It's gonna [C7]see me through
You [Eb]know it's gonna see me [Bb1]through
D G(open) F#7 Bm C
G(barre) F1 Eb Bb/D
[C7] Cause when the sun goes down
I'm gonna make like a tree and [Eb]bloom
Sleeping through the [Bb/D]afternoon
I [F2]just canít [Eb]seem to [Bb/D]leave my r[C7]oom
Waiting [Eb]for the moon and a [Bb/D]love so true
Itís gonna [C7]see me through
You [Eb]know itís gonna see me [Bb1]through
(Even though the last part ends on Bb and this part starts on Bb,
I change from Bb1 to Bb2 to get closer to the lower F,
there's a pause anyway, might as well.)
[Bb2]Drifting down the sleepy river
[F1]Waking like a child
C G barre
Never gonna know what the spirit said
Unless you [Bb2]drift down for a [F1]while
[Eb]Never gonna know what the [Bb/D]wind is whispering [C7]now
[Eb]Never gonna know unless you[Bb/D] leave this world [C7]somehow
Unless you [Eb]leave this world [Bb1]somehow
Bb1 A(barre)
I woke up on the street
E(barre) Ab
So apprehensive, feeling weak
And as I [C#]finally tried to [F#]speak
G(open) D A(open)
Twelve birds flew straightways from my mouth
Bb1 A(barre)
I circled high above the sky
E(barre) Ab
Began to cry with piercing sounds
A crowd g[C#]athered on the [F#]ground
G(open) D A(open)
All speaking strangely through their teeth
Bb1 A(barre)
I felt alone and in my creep
E(barre) Ab
I spoke once more into the wind
A storm of [C#]birds contained there[F#]in
E(open)
Began to spin, to spin
Bb1 A(barre) E(barre) Ab
C# F# E(open)
D G(open)
Your eyelids are made of lead
[F#7] You can't keep them [Bm]up
C G(barre)
Cause its sleepytime
And [F1]that's no [Eb]crime in the [Bb/D]western wo[C7]rld
Cause when the sun goes down
Youíre bound to follow [Eb]through
Sleeping through the a[Bb/D]fternoon
I [F2]just can't [Eb]seem to [Bb/D]leave my [C7]room
Waiting [Eb]for the moon and a [Bb/D]love so true
It's gonna [C7]see me through
You [Eb]know it's gonna see me [Bb1]through
