Here Come the Snakes  Crooked Fingers

Crooked Fingers - Here Come The Snakes
Tabbed By: Joshua Barclay-Wiltse
This is the basic progression. I'm sure Eric is using an alternate tuning for the studio
but I don't know what it is so I just did the song in standard.
[Am] [G]  
[Am]Dim the lantern[Em]s, [F]kill the lig[C]hts, [F]let's leave [Am]tonight [F]to hide away[G]
[Am]To take cold c[Em]omfort [F]in the [C]dark, and [F]leave our [Am]hearts [F]behind to wa[G]it
We[F]'ll tear away these dreadful [G]skins that w[C]e must shed to s[F]tart again
[F]The evil things that we[G] can do a[C]re easy if you thin[F]k them through
[F]Are easy [G]if you [Em]can pre[F]tend
[G]So shut your windows l[F]ock your doors
[G]Here come the snakes you be[F]st be sure
[G]To keep your conscience b[F]olted tight
[G]Cause they'll be lying, waiting
[C]Coiled up in the c[G]orner the [Am]devil never[F] dies
[C]Vending venom s[G]ickly sweet t[F]o help you through the ni[G]ght
[C]Well you say you're an a[G]ngel, but I[Am] say you're a li[F]ar
[C]Cause you were burning lo[G]ng before you c[F]rept into this fi[G]re
(and so forth for the rest of the song)
So keep your shadow out of sight the time is right to hide away
To keep your conscience frozen numb the time has come don't be afraid
We'll tear away these dreadful skins that we must shed to start again
The sickest thing they did to you the did because you let them through
The did because you let them in
So shut your windows lock your doors
Here come the snakes you best be sure
To keep your conscience bolted tight
'Cause they'll be lying waiting
Coiled up in the corner a devil never dies
Vending venom sickly sweet to help you through the night
You say you're an angel but I say you're a liar
'Cause you were burning long before you crept into this fire
I know you've been burning we both know there's no light
So dim the lanterns so we don't see the darkness of this night
