Eat for Two  10,000 Maniacs

Eat for Two by 10,000 Maniacs
from the album 10,000 Maniacs Unplugged
This is definitely one of the hardest songs I've ever learned to play.
best of luck
with it!
It's difficult because of the chords :
Fm XX3111
Eb/G XX3121
Eb X43121
Cm X3554X
[Ab]Db/F [466544]X43121
Bbm7 X1312X
C7 X32310
Definitely not a three chord song!
there's also this Fm7omit3rd chord : XX354X
Intro Fm7omit3rd
[Fm] [Eb/G] [Eb] [Cm] [Ab] 
[Db/F] Oh, baby blankets and baby shoes, baby slippers, baby spoons, walls
of baby
[Db]blue.[Fm] Dream child [Eb/G]in my [Eb]head is a [Cm]nightmare born i[Ab]n a [Db/F]borrowed [Db]bed
Now I [Ab]know, [Cm]lightning strikes again.[Bbm7] [Db] It [Ab]struck me once,
[Cm] then struck me [Bbm7]dead. [Db] My folly [Ab]grows inside of me [Bbm] [C7]I
Fm Fm7omit3rd
eat for two, walk for two, breathe for two now.
Fm Fm7omit3rd
eat for two, walk for two, breathe for two now.
(the next verses follow this same pattern of chords so I'm only going to
type out the
lyrics)
Well, the egg man fell down off his shelf
All the good king's men with all their help
Struggled 'til the end
For a shell they couldn't mend
You know where this will lead
to hush and rock in the nursery
for the kicking one inside of me.
I eat for two, walk for two, breathe for two now
I eat for two, walk for two, breathe for two now
When the boy was a boy, and a girl was a girl
and they found each other in a wicked world
strong in some respects but she couldn't stand for the way he begged
And gave in. Pride is for men.
Young girls should run and hide instead.
Risk the game by taking dares with "yes"
Eat for two, walk for two, breathe for two now.
eat for two, walk for two, breathe for two now
Fm7omit3[Fm7]
Walk for two? I'm stumbling. Breathe for two? I...I can't breathe.
I can't breathe[Fm7]
Fm no chord
Five months, how it grows, five months now, I begin to show.
