Verse 1 (N.C for most of the verse so these are implied by the melody)
[(Am)] In a town in the [(E)]woods at the top of a [(C)]hill
There's a house where[(D)] no one lives
[(F/C)] So you take a big [(C)]bag of your big city[(D)] money there, and[(E)] buy it
[(Am)] Then at night when the[(E)] house is dark
And you're[(C)] all alone there's a[(D)] noise upstairs
[(F/C)] At the top of the[(C)] stairs there's a door so you[(D)] take a deep breath and[(E)] try it
And the [F/C]flashlight shows you [C]something moving [Bm7b5]just inside the [Am]door
There's a [F/C]tattered dress and a [C]feeling you have [D]felt somewhere be[E]fore....
Chorus
[Am] And there's a creepy doll, [Fmaj7/C] that always follows you
[G] It's got a ruined eye, that's [D]al[G]ways [E]op[Am]en
[Am] And there's a creepy doll, [Fmaj7/C] that always follows you
[G] It's got a pretty mouth, to sw[D]all[G]ow [E]you [Am]whole[Fmaj7add11/C]
Verse 2
[Am] So you scream and you [E]close the door
And you [C]tell yourself it was [D]just a dream
[F/C] In the morning you [C]head into town cause you [D]want to go an[E]tiquing
[Am] In the store there's a [E]strange old man
With a [C]wandering eye and a [D]withered hand
[F/C] When he hands you the [C]old wooden box you can [D]hear his old bones [E]creaking
And you [F/C]know what you will [C]find inside the [Bm7b5]moment that you [Am]see
That [F/C]someone carved your [C]name into the [D]tarnished silver [E]key
Chorus
[Am] And there's a creepy doll, [Fmaj7/C] that always follows you
[G] It's got a ruined eye, that's [D]al[G]ways [E]op[Am]en
[Am] And there's a creepy doll, [Fmaj7/C] that always follows you
[G] It's got a pretty mouth, to sw[D]all[G]ow [E]you [Am]whole
Bridge
And [F/C]when you come home [C]late the doll is [Bm7b5]waiting up for [Am]you
And [F/C]when you fix a [C]snack the doll says [Bm7b5]it would like one [Am]too
The [F/C]doll is in your [G]house and in your [F/C]room and in your [G]bed
The [F/C]doll is in your [G]eyes and in your [F/C]arms and in your [G]head and you are [C]crazy
|F/C |D7 |F/C |
Verse 3
[Am] Now it's late and you [E]head downstairs
Cause you [C]just can't sleep so you [D]make some tea
[F/C] And the doll disap[C]provingly asks if you [D]really need that much [E]honey
[Am] You decide that you've [E]had enough
And you [C]lock the doll in the [D]wooden box
[F/C] You put the box in the [C]fireplace next to your [D]bag of big city [E]money
As the [F/C]smoke [)]fills up your [C]tiny room there's [Bm7b5]nothing you can [Am]do
And [F/C]far too late you [C]see the one [D]inside the box is [E]you
Chorus
[Am] And there's a creepy doll, [Fmaj7/C] that always follows you
[G] It's got a ruined eye, that's [D]al[G]ways [E]op[Am]en
[Am] And there's a creepy doll, [Fmaj7/C] that always follows you
[G] It's got a pretty mouth, to sw[D]all[G]ow [E]you [Am]whole[Fmaj7add11/C]
