Of My Brothers and the Bear  Hop Along

Capo on 5, though I prefer it on 1,2, or just open.
Listen for strumming its kinda weird
 Intro: e|----------3p0-0--------------3p0-0------------------3p0-0--|
 ---2-------------2-----2----------| (second time end on 3
 ------------3---------------------| (x2) instead of 0)

[C] We thought we heard a bear,
[Am] We turned around to run,
[Em] Me and my cousins one by one,
[G] Thought man if i had a gun,
[C] I'd have shot him in the head,
[Am] I'd of shot that big bear dead,
[Em] laid his skin out in the sun,
[G] and hang him up to dry with clothespins,
[C] and the town would think me brave,
[Am] Throw a party in my honor,
[Em] Mom would paint my face with deerblood,
[G] I'd enter like a god,
[C] and the bear'd be on a flagpole,
[Am] Wave to all the little boys and girls,
[Em] Come spring he would disintegrate,
[G] and be reborn a plumber,
So [C]suddenly it [Am]seems to me, I [Em]ain't no artist, I [G]ought to be
The [C]dirt along the [Am]ocean floor, So [Em]when it drains I'll [G]float to shore,
Now [C]scathingly i'll [Am]throw the paint [Em]along my wall,
and [G]fall and faint,
my [C]bones will know just [Am]what to do, and by the [Em]break of dawn i will be[G] new,
[C] We thought we saw a man,
[Am] We could not see a gun,
[Em] so my brother said move on,
[G] thought man if i had a bomb,
[C] I'd of blown the scoundrel up,
[Am] Watch his head and heart hiccup,
[Em] Erupt in tinsel and blue cinders
[G] Turn august into winter,
[C] And we'd build a big snowman
[Am] out of his pancreas and glitter,
[Em] Grab a scarf so he won't shiver,
[G] it'll keep him nice and warm,
[C] and the man he'd blow to heaven,
[Am] be among his loves and brethren,
[Em] in the morning he'd wake up
[G] to find himself reborn a bear,
So [C]suddenly it [Am]seems to me, I [Em]ain't no artist, I [G]ought to be
The [C]dirt along the [Am]ocean floor, So [Em]when it drains I'll [G]float to shore,
Now [C]joyously i'll th[Am]row the paint al[Em]ong the mountains, [G]Liberate,
the[C] blue all the seagulls [Am]will adore, they won't [Em]care for the fish any[G] more,
any [C]more, any [Am]more, any [Em]more, any [G]more,
I guess [C]i...i will wake [Am]up,
I'll shake this o[Em]ff,
I'll call my [G]cousins,
miss my [C]brother my father my [Am]mother,
and my [Em]big sister in [G]new mexico,
i [C]don't [Am]recall it was [Em]just a [G]dream, (soft)
i [C]don't [Am]recall it was [Em]just a [G]dream, (loud)
but if i [C]see a [Am]bear i hope it might [Em]come back, come back,
might come back to [G]me. (End on C)
