The Arsonist  Simon Joyner

He plays F - 033211
Intro : C, F, C, F
[C]First you burned your [F]own house [C]down
[F]Then you sold the ashes [G]to the [C]clown
[F]Who painted his b[G]row with t[C]hundercl[Am]ouds
And pulled [F]flowers out of his [G]mouth
[C]Then you grabbed the [F]bouquet and [C]flew
[F]From everything [G]that asked to much of [C]you
[F]But the future gives [G]birth to both [C]sorrow and [Am]mirth
It don't [F]matter what you say or [G]do
[C]And now, you pray for a [F]dry c[C]anteen
So you can [F]dare an [G]empty sky to [C]rain
Then you [F]shake your [G]fist, you [C]can't [Am]resist
[F]Does anybody feel your [G]pain?
You're [F]alone and you [G]can't go home a[C]gain
[F]They look for [G]you in the leaves of [C]magazine[F]s,
[C]In picaresque st[F]ories, i[C]n penny arcade p[F]ortraits of Laur[G]en Bacall
[C]While I look f[G]or you in the dye of [C]canceled s[F]tamps,
[C]In the panic of [F]sirens, in the v[C]anishing kite st[F]rings of [G]airplane exhaust
[F]But nobody can c[G]atch the[C] arsonist
