Wildebeest  The Handsome Family

When St[A]ephen F[E]oster d[A]ied
in a f[D]lop-house on the B[A]owery
His w[D]orn-out wallet h[A]eld
just a qu[E]arter and a d[E7]ime
But the cr[D]ocodiles h[E]ave to e[A]at,
the cr[F#m]ocodiles h[E]ave to e[A]at
He sm[A]ashed his h[E]ead on the s[A]ink
in the b[D]itter fever of g[A]in
A w[D]ildebeest gone cr[A]azy with thirst
pulled do[E]wn as he tried to dr[E7]ink
But d[D]eep down in the m[E]uddy str[A]eam
even c[F#m]rocodiles dr[E]eam their dr[A]eams
And [A]as the h[E]erd galloped [A]off
he l[D]ay on that flophouse fl[A]oor
S[D]inging, "Beautiful Dr[A]eamer"
as the li[E]ons began to r[E7]oar
But we a[D]ll have our b[E]eautiful dr[A]eams
running thr[F#m]ough us like w[E]ildebe[A]est
[D] [E] [A] [D] [A] [D] [A] [E] [E7]  
[D] [E] [A] [F#m] [E] [A]  
And w[A]hen we m[E]eet at the r[A]iver
to cr[D]oss to that gleaming s[A]hore
The r[D]iver, she always t[A]akes a few
as the h[E]erd thunders acr[E7]oss
But the r[D]iver has [E]oceans to f[A]eed,
she has b[F#m]eautiful [E]oceans to f[A]eed
And the [A]oceans they f[E]eed the s[A]ky
and the s[D]ky feeds the e[A]arth
And St[D]ephen Foster's b[A]eautiful ghost
lay d[E]own to feed a s[E7]ong
To f[D]eed ten th[E]ousand s[A]ongs
[F#m]echoing [E]cross the wild pl[A]ains
