[G]Pocket it for [Em]luck and then you w[C]alk on a[G]lone
[G]They'll rent you a [Em]bicycle with the t[C]ires [G]blown
[G]They'll carve you up a bl[Em]ackened fish and s[C]trip it to the b[D]one

[G]I.[Em].. [C] [D] need you
[G]Well in that house H[Em]emingway is b[C]oxing in the b[G]ack
[G]I go to the li[Em]brary and che[C]ck out all the [G]facts
[G]Nowadays it's hard to write a l[Em]ine, my own th[C]oughts bore[G] me
[G]I found me an i[Em]sland kid who s[C]ays he'll do it for[D] me
[Bm]I'm wiping all my tears away so n[C]o one has a clue

[A]Some bird's flapping in the r[Asus]oad on some crazy madm[A]an's s[Am]tring[Am/G] [F]
[A]Something's messed up with his [Asus]wing, something's messed up with [A]my [C]every[D/F#]thing
[G]So here's the tr[Em]uth at last, I tel[C]l you, Hemin[G]gway is dead
[G]And everybody wa[Em]nts to find a s[C]teak that's slightly [G]red
[Bm]I thought I could escape myself by just n[C]ot getting d[G]ressed
