Crowing  Toad the Wet Sprocket


contributed by Ryan Houlette
Capo this on the second fret.
G D Am Em Am Bm C (2x)
Been [G]waiting[D] to [Am]find[Em]
[Am]you could've been hap[D]pier given the time
If he'd [G]make up[D] his [Am]mind[Em]
You'd give [Am]yourself to an[Bm]ybody who would [C]cross that line
And it was [C]never a [D]question[Em]
He was [Am]crowing[Bm] for [C]repair
You'd give him [C]love and [D]affection
But [Em]you couldn't [D]keep him ther[C]e
Get o[G]ver[D] regre[Am]ts[Em]
While you were [Am]sleeping with the angels he was [D]under the bed
And the m[G]ore sk[D]in that you s[Am]hed[Em]
The more that the [Am]air in your throat w[Bm]ill linger
when you [C]call him your friend
And it was [C]never a [D]question[Em]
He was [Am]crowing[Bm] for [C]repair
You'd give him [C]love and [D]affection
But [Em]you couldn't [D]keep him ther[C]e
[Em]Staring at a [F]cold little hand
Reading [C]fault lines in a [D]shell of a man
You were [Em]waiting for a [F]word from above
[C]Wouldn't you know it
[C]No answer ever did come
And it was [C]never a [D]question[Em]
You were [Am]crowing [Bm]for r[C]epair
You'd give him [C]love and [D]affection
But [Em]you couldn't [D]keep him ther[C]e

THis is how I play it........ so if it's wrong... it's wrong:)
A* Fret the 5th
Verse form:
A* E Bm F#m
Been waitin to find,
You could o[Bm]f been happie[A]r given the t[E]ime
(repeat same format)
If he'd make up, his mind
You'd give yourself to anybody who would cross that line
And it was never [A]a question[E] [F#m]
He was crowing[Bm] for repair[A] [E]
You'd give him love and[A] affection[E]
But you [Bm]couldn't keep [F#m]him there[A] [(Asus4)] [A]
(back to verse form)
Get over, regret
While you were sleepin with angels, he was under the bed
And the more skin, you shed
More that the air in your throat would linger when you call him your
Staring, [F#m] at a col[Bm]d little hand reading fault l[A]ines
Of a she[E]ll of a man
You were waitin[F#m]g for a word f[Bm]rom above
Wouldn't you know it [A] No answer ever did come[A]
