Red Right Ankle  The Decemberists

Gsus4 sounds better
[G]This is the story of your [C]red right ankle, [G] and how it came to meet your [C]leg
[G]And how the muscle bone an[C]d sinews tangled,[G] and how the skin was softly s[C]hed
[Am]And how it whispered, oh, ad[D]here to me, [Am] for we are bound by [D]symmetry
[Am]And whatever differences our [D]lives have been, [G] we together make a [C]limb[C/B]
[Am]This is the story of your [D]red right an[G]kle[C] [G] [C]
[G]This is the story of your [C]gypsy uncle, [G]you never knew cause he w[C]as dead
[G]And how his face was carve[C]d and ripped wrinkles[G], in the picture in [C]your head
[Am]And remember how you[D] found the key,[Am] to his hideout in [A]the [(Asus4)]Pyrenees
[Am]But you wanted to keep [D]his secret safe, so[G] you threw the k[C]ey away[C/B]
