Human Like a House  The Finches

Song: Human Like a House
Artist: The Finches
Tab by: Joe Pouttu
Capo 2nd fret
Intro: G

[G]New front door, [C]same address
S[G]ame front step, same back-porch
G[Am]eraniums to the terrace
S[G]old my shoes to p[C]ay the rent
[D]I won't be needing them[Em]
[D]I won't be leaving too [Em]soon
[G]Oh my dear, [C]do undress
[G]You look so different in [Am]those new shoes
To impress [G]someone you have [C]never met
[D]Someone you already [Em]know
Is [D]waiting behind my front [Em]door
And [G]by the door you [D]know I'll wait
Oh, [Em]by the window, [C]by the gate[G]
I'm [D]waiting for your [Em]sound[C]
So [G]softly, dear, don't [D]hesitate
The [Em]lion looms [C]along the lake[G]
And [D]swallows every [Em]sound[C]
But [G]oh, I wish that I could [C]take
That simple lonely [G]way
That long cold lonely [C]way
But these days it takes [D]more than two feet
It takes [C]four to fill the road
I [G]fend and swing the axe at [D]for
I've [G]trampled all o[D]ver the place
Swun[Em]g to and fro and [C]still no st[G]ate
Has [D]held me in its [Em]bounds[C]
But [G]by the bridge I'd [D]like to stay
Oh, [Em]by the ocean, [C]by the b[G]ay
And [D]hope that you'll come a[Em]round[C]
[G]Oh, my dear, [C]do undress
[G]You look so different in [Am]those new clothes
To impress [G]someone you have[C] never met
[D]I'm the one needing y[Em]ou
[D]I'm the one with no [Em]shoes
So [G]by the door you [D]know I'll wait
Oh, [Em]looking out the [C]golden ga[G]te
She [D]yawns into the [Em]morning...[C] [Em]
