The Orange Monkey  PJ Harvey

(Verse 1)
A [Am]restlessness took [G]hold my brain, and [Dm]questions I could [G]not hold back
An [Am]orange monkey [G]on a chain, [Dm]on a bleak un[G]even track
[Am]Told me that to [G]understand, [Dm]you must travel [G]back in time
I [Am]took a plane to a [G]foreign land, and [Dm]said, "I'll write down [G]what I fi[C]nd"
Ah-[Am]ah [G]ah, ah-[Am]ah [G]ah
(Verse 2)
Be[Am]neath a mountain's [G]jagged shelves, [Dm]cloaked with snow and [G]shadows sheer
[Am]Plates tipped up u[G]pon themselves, the [Dm]pain of fifty [G]million years
And [Am]mules and goats were [G]running wild, a [Dm]happy chaos [G]carried on
And [Am]old men and the [G]young boys smiled, and [Dm]worked until the [G]day was go[C]ne
Ah-[Am]ah [G]ah, ah-[Am]ah [G]ah
(Verse 3)
The [Am]packs of sandy-[G]coloured dogs, walked [Dm]streets that looked like [G]building sites
But [Am]piles of rocks and [G]dust and smog, could [Dm]not block out a [G]different light
When [Am]I returned I [G]ran to meet, the [Dm]monkey but his [G]face had changed
He [Am]stood before me [G]on two feet, the [Dm]track was now a [G]motorw[C]ay
Ah-[Am]ah [G]ah, ah-[Am]ah [G]ah
Ah-[Am]ah [G]ah, ah-[Am]ah [G]ah
