INTRO:
G G/B (alternate picking)
VERSE 1:
[G]Lovely M[D]ary Sw[G]eeney,
the f[C]amous window sm[G]asher
Was just a q[C]uiet school marm - [G]Oh de lay ee ee
from Lac[D]rosse, Wi[G]sconsin
VERSE 2:
She t[G]ook a p[D]inch of c[G]ocaine
but o[C]nly for her n[G]erves
La[C]udanum for tre[G]mbling hands,
a little bottle i[D]n her p[G]urse[G7]
CHORUS:
She was a wo[C]odpecker,
she coul[G]dn't help but see
[C]All the things that hide
inside a[D]ll the pretty tr[G]ees
VERSE 3:
At [G]dusk she t[D]ook a tr[G]ain
just a h[C]ammer in her b[G]ag
She went from to[C]wn to town - [G]Oh de lay ee ee
smashing every p[D]ane of g[G]lass[G7]
PRE-CHORUS:
St[C]orefronts, mirrors, wi[G]ndshields
sh[C]attered in the ni[G]ght
A h[C]ammer through a w[G]indow's gleam
filled the a[D]ir with ligh[G]t[G7]

She was a wo[C]odpecker,
she coul[G]dn't help but free

inside a[D]ll the pretty tr[G]ees

VERSE 4:
[G]In the s[D]tate asyl[G]um
the wind[C]ows caged in b[G]ars
They soa[C]ked her in an [G]ice-cold bath
till she was s[D]eeing st[G]ar[G7]s
PRE-CHORUS:
Wr[C]apped up in her strait[G]jacket
her m[C]ind still hammered [G]on
Till the gl[C]ass inside her smashed - O[G]h de lay ee ee
and she flew off i[D]nto the tre[G]es[G7]
CHORUS:
She was a wo[C]odpecker,
she coul[G]dn't help but see
[C]All the things that hide
inside a[D]ll the pretty tr[G]ees
