Sleeper 1972  Manchester Orchestra

By Candler English
W[G]hen [G/F#]my dad d[D]ied the [G]worms ate out [G/F#]both his e[Em]yes.
His s[G]oul flew right [G/F#]up in the s[Em]ky and I cr[G]ied myself to s[Bm]leep.[A] [G]
M[G]y m[G/F#]other l[D]ies a[G]lone on her [G/F#]back at n[Em]ight,
Ad[G]ding up h[G/F#]ours till her d[Em]emise, s[G]he counts herself to s[Bm]leep.[A] [G]
W[G]hen my [G/F#]sister f[D]inds my b[G]ody closed [G/F#]up like the b[Em]linds,
I [G]tell her I [G/F#]promise its f[Em]ine, but s[G]he cries herself to s[Bm]leep.[A] [G]
[G]The m[G/F#]en in black t[D]ies a[G]rrive at the h[G/F#]ouse in su[Em]rprise.
To f[G]ind a l[G/F#]ittle girl by your s[Em]ide in the w[G]ood box where you're s[Bm]leeping.[A] [G]
I[G] still [D]see you ins[Bm]ide of this G[A]od-awful h[G]ouse
You m[Bm]ove awfully q[A]uiet n[G]ow
[G]And I still f[D]eel you e[Bm]very[A]wher[G]e
You t[G]old me this has a[G/F#]lways been worth l[D]iving,
B[D]ut what's really w[G]orth living[Bm] [A] anymore?[G]
Outro: Bm A G
