Small Red Boy

	  		
Intro: Am Em 

Am                  Em            Am 
I found a small red boy inside my tummy 
     C                 Em                  Am 
With three dollars in change and a milky way light 
      C                     Em                  Am 
In my occasional pursuit to find something more meaningful 
    F                                 G 
And yet another word that rhymes with die 
Am                Em            Am 
I cut him out and put him on my table 
    F                 G                    Am 
His shallow breathing chest would fall and rise 
     C                Em                Am 
His 'South of Heaven' shirt was way too big for him 
    F 
His horns were long and sharp  
            G 
And then he opened up those eyes that said  
   C           Am           Em 
"I am, I am, I am, I am the truth." 


Am Em


  Am                Em           Am 
I showered him with love and adulation 
C              Em              Am 
One day he was just as tall as me 
  C                  Em               Am 
I showed him all the books that I was raised on 
     F                         G 
Your Madeleine L'Engle and D'Aulaires' Mythologies 
         Am                 Em                Am 
And in a montage that could warm the heart of Hitler, 
  C                Em             Am 
I raised him up so proud and motherly 
  C                Em            Am 
I swore that I was glancing in a mirror 
            F                                   G 
When in the language that I taught him, oh god, he began to speak, he said 
  C           Am           Em 
I am, I am, I am, I am the truth 
  C           Am           Em 
I am, I am, I am, I am the truth 


Am Em 


        Am 
And his eyes became a beacon 
   G                 Em                            F 
An LCD projector broadcasting all my memories in a clear and vivid picture 
    F 
His tongue became a staircase 
    G 
His uvula the knocker 
      Em                             F 
Of an ornate wooden door that led me straight into my future 
    F                               Em 
His throat became a hallway with a thousand baby pictures 
    G                           F 
And I became forgiveness I transformed into the closure that I lost 
F                    G        
When I learned about the tragedy of all of us  
  Em                               F 
I lost it when I learned about the tragedy of all of us 
  F                         G 
Incorrigible illness in the loved ones in and out of us 
  Em                               F 
I lost it when I learned about the tragedy of all of us 
  F                                G 
I walked through the hallways to a room of only mirrors 
Em                            F 
Reflecting me in bondage so I watched myself get freer 
  F 
I let my horns grow longer  
  G 
I observed my skin get redder  
   Am 
My soul became a hammer  
   C 
I started to feel better 
   F 
My hatred to turned to pity  
   G 
My resentment blossomed flowers 
   Am 
My bitter tasting candy  
   C 
My misery was power  
    F 
The truth in me grew brighter 
   G 
My nature and my nurture  
        C 
No more shame 
        G 
No more fear 
        Am 
No more dread 
  F           G            Am 
I am, I am, I am, I am the truth.
