Volunteer  The Weepies

G C x4

[Verse 1] 
[G]My lover le[C]ft me, she le[G]ft me too s[C]oon.
[G] I shouldn't bl[C]ame her, for the st[G]ate of my r[C]oom.
[G]I started st[C]umbling, ch[G]asing the b[C]ells.
The m[G]etal straps up[C]on my knees made this[G] sound when I f[C]ell
Y[D]ou heard those words from your peers
I was just your volunte[G]er.[C] [G] [C] [G] [C] [G] [C]
[Verse 2] 
We l[G]ove uncle Ge[C]orgie, uncle Ge[G]orgie's our fri[C]end.
He sp[G]ends his life f[C]ishing, washes[G] dishes weeke[C]nds.
And I tr[D]ied to say something sincere
Sign me up I'll volunt[G]eer.[C] [G] [C] [G] [C] [G] [C]
[Verse 3] 
[G]My Father l[C]eft us, he l[G]eft us too s[C]oon.
[G]I thought he'd say s[C]omething, but he w[G]altzed from the r[C]oom.
[G]All I rem[C]ember is my ha[G]nds at my si[C]des.
The f[G]ace of a w[C]oman who o[G]nce was his br[C]ide.
[D]All that he left us was tears
And a couple of lonely volunt[G]eers[C].[G] [C]
[D]All that he left her was tears
And a couple of lonely volunte[G]ers.[C] [G] [C] [G] [C] [G] [C] [G] [C] [G] [C]
[Verse 4] 
Now we lo[G]ok for sister Ma[C]ry, sister [G]Mary's the p[C]ale.
She ho[G]lds her head so[C]metimes and walks[G] close to the r[C]ail.
She si[G]ngs on a Su[C]nday, sta[G]nds in the st[C]airs.
[G]Haunts me at ni[C]ght time when I've forg[G]otten my pr[C]ayers.
[D]We don't see much of her here
That winter-weary volunt[G]eer.[C] [G] [C] [G] [C] [G] [C]
{Verse 5]
[G]Captains need o[C]rder it hel[G]ps them stay s[C]ane.
[G]Plumbers hate sla[C]ughter, 'cause it [G]f**ks up the dr[C]ains.
[G]Hard hats must [C]be worn at all ti[G]mes on the s[C]ite.
[G]It makes no di[C]fference if you're l[G]ost in the li[C]ght.
The m[D]en here have lost their careers
And they don't talk to volunte[G]ers.[C] [G] [C] [G] [C] [G] [C]
[Verse 6] 
[G]How your life c[C]uts me, it c[G]uts to my bo[C]ne.
We pr[G]etend that it's n[C]othing, when we're [G]on our way h[C]ome.
And I w[D]ish you'd abandon me here
So I could be your volunte[G]er. [C] [G] [C] [G] [C] [G] [C] [G] [C] [G]
