SHANKILL BUTCHERS - The Decemberists
 
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

From the album: The Crane Wife (2006)
Tabbed by: Justin Muir
Email: HojoSeph99@optonline.net
Tuning: Standard, Capo 4
Key: Am (actually C#m)
Everything is relative to the capo. Play the bass note and then strum the chord. He
in some other bass notes other than when I noted e.g. E/B or F/C. The E/B and F/C mean to
a regular E major or F major but instead of playing the bass note E or F (6th string),
B or C (5th string)
Intro: Am Am/B C Am/B x2
The [Am]shankill [Am/E]butchers run [F]tonight
You [E]better shut your windows tight
They're [Am]sharpening their [Am/E]cleavers and their [F]knives
And [E]taking all their whiskey by the pint
And everybody [Am]know[Am/E]s if you [F]don't
[G]Mind your mother's [Am]words[Am/E]
A [Am]wicked [Am/E]wind will [F]blow[F/C]

They [Am]used to be [Am/E]just like me and [F]you
They [E]used to be sweet little boys
But [Am]something went [Am/E]horribly a[F]skew
Now [E]killing is their only source of joy
And everybody [Am]know[Am/E]s if you [F]don't
[G]Mind your mother's [Am]words[Am/E]
A [Am]wicked [Am/E]wind will [F]blow[F/C]
