Summer Cannibals  Patti Smith

F G Am C G Am x 2
[Verse 1] 
[C]I was [G]down in [Am]Georgia [F]nothing [G]was as r[Am]eal
As the [C]street [G]beneath my [Am]feet [F]descending [G]into [Am]air
[C] [G] [Am] [F] [G] [Am]  
[Verse 2] 
[C]The cauldron [G]was a [Am]bubbling, the [F]flesh [G]was [Am]lean
And the [C]women [G]moved f[Am]orward like [F]piranhas [G]in a [Am]stream
They [C]spread themse[G]lves bef[Am]ore me an [F]offering [G]so [Am]sweet
And they [C]beckoned and [G]they [Am]beckoned [F]come on [G]darling [Am]eat
E[F]at the s[G]ummer c[Am]annibals, [C]eat [G]eat [Am]eat
You [F]eat the [G]summer c[Am]annibals, [C]eat [G]eat [Am]eat
[Verse 3] 
They [C]circled [G]around [Am]me na[F]tives [G]in a [Am]ring
And I [C]saw their [G]souls a-[Am]withering like [F]snakes [G]in [Am]chains
And they [C]wrapped t[G]hemselves [Am]around me, [F]what [G]a [Am]treat
And they [C]rattled their [G]tales [Am]hissing' [F]come on [G]let's[Am] eat
[F]Eat the [G]summer c[Am]annibals, [C]eat [G]eat [Am]eat
You [F]eat the [G]summer c[Am]annibals, [C]eat [G]eat [Am]eat
F G Am C G Am x 4
[Verse 4] 
I f[C]elt a [G]rising in my [Am]throat the [F]girls a-[G]saying [Am]grace
And the [C]air, the [G]viscous [Am]air p[F]ressed a[G]gainst my [Am]face
And it [C]all got [G]too damn [Am]much for me [F]just got [G]too damn [Am]rough
And I [C]pushed a[G]way my [Am]plate and said [F]boys I've [G]had [Am]enough
And I [C]laid u[G]pon the [Am]table anot[F]her [G]piece of [Am]meat
And I [C]opened [G]up my [Am]veins to them and said [F]come [G]on [Am]eat
[F]Eat the [G]summer c[Am]annibals, [C]eat [G]eat [Am]eat
You [F]eat the [G]summer c[Am]annibals, [C]eat [G]eat [Am]eat
You [F]eat the [G]summer [Am]cannibals, [C]eat [G]eat [Am]eat
You [F]eat the [G]summer c[Am]annibals, [C]eat [G]eat [Am]eat
'Cause [F]I was [G]down in [Am]Georgia [C]nothing [G]was as [Am]real
As the [F]street [G]beneath [Am]my feet [C]descend[G]ing into [Am]hell
So [F]eat [G]eat [Am]eat
You [F]eat [G]eat [Am]eat
You [F]eat [G]eat [Am]eat
[F]Eat [G]eat [Am]eat
