Verse 1 (N.C for most of the verse so these are implied by the melody)
[(Am)] In a town in the [(E)]woods at the top of a [(C)]hill
There's a house where[(D)] no one lives
[(F)] So you take a bi[(C)]g bag of your big ci[(D)]ty money there, a[(E)]nd buy it
[(Am)] Then at night when the[(E)] house is dark
And you're[(C)] all alone there's a[(D)] noise upstairs
[(F)] At the top of t[(C)]he stairs there's a door so y[(D)]ou take a deep breath a[(E)]nd try it
And the [F]flashlight shows yo[C]u something movin[Bm7b5]g just inside th[Am]e door
There's a [F]tattered dress and [C]a feeling you hav[D]e felt somewhere [E]before....
Chorus
[Am] And there's a creepy doll, [Fmaj7/C] that always follows you
[G] It's got a ruined eye, that's [D]al[G]ways [E]op[Am]en
[Am] And there's a creepy doll, [Fmaj7/C] that always follows you
[G] It's got a pretty mouth, to sw[D]all[G]ow [E]you [Am]whole[Fmaj7add11/C]
Verse 2
[Am] So you scream and you [E]close the door
And you [C]tell yourself it was [D]just a dream
[F] In the morning yo[C]u head into town cause yo[D]u want to go [E]antiquing
[Am] In the store there's a [E]strange old man
With a [C]wandering eye and a [D]withered hand
[F] When he hands you th[C]e old wooden box you ca[D]n hear his old bone[E]s creaking
And you [F]know what you wil[C]l find inside th[Bm7b5]e moment that yo[Am]u see
That [F]someone carved you[C]r name into th[D]e tarnished silve[E]r key
Chorus
[Am] And there's a creepy doll, [Fmaj7/C] that always follows you
[G] It's got a ruined eye, that's [D]al[G]ways [E]op[Am]en
[Am] And there's a creepy doll, [Fmaj7/C] that always follows you
[G] It's got a pretty mouth, to sw[D]all[G]ow [E]you [Am]whole
Bridge
And [F]when you come hom[C]e late the doll i[Bm7b5]s waiting up fo[Am]r you
And [F]when you fix [C]a snack the doll say[Bm7b5]s it would like on[Am]e too
The [F]doll is in you[G]r house and in you[F]r room and in y[G]our bed
The [F]doll is in you[G]r eyes and in you[F]r arms and in y[G]our head and you [C]are crazy

Verse 3
[Am] Now it's late and you [E]head downstairs
Cause you [C]just can't sleep so you [D]make some tea
[F] And the doll dis[C]approvingly asks if yo[D]u really need that muc[E]h honey
[Am] You decide that you've [E]had enough
And you [C]lock the doll in the [D]wooden box
[F] You put the box in th[C]e fireplace next to you[D]r bag of big cit[E]y money
As the [F]smok[)]e fills up you[C]r tiny room there'[Bm7b5]s nothing you ca[Am]n do
And [F]far too late yo[C]u see the on[D]e inside the box i[E]s you
Chorus
[Am] And there's a creepy doll, [Fmaj7/C] that always follows you
[G] It's got a ruined eye, that's [D]al[G]ways [E]op[Am]en
[Am] And there's a creepy doll, [Fmaj7/C] that always follows you
[G] It's got a pretty mouth, to sw[D]all[G]ow [E]you [Am]whole[Fmaj7add11/C]
