Too Many Flesh Suppers

	  		This is how I play the song, so it's probably not perfect! Suggestions and corrections welcome. 

G 

C  F  C  Am F x2 

           Am                     C 
They found two dogs hung from electrical pylons, 
G                   Em 
by their hind legs just down from my road. 
     Am                                C 
You slit their bellies open left the knife inside, 
         G                              Em 
they'd ripped off our collars, we had nowhere to hide. 

                 Am 
Do you feel the sweat drip? 
                    C 
Wake up when your hearts skips. 
               G                             Em 
4am you're screaming, 'Mother, swear I am a good kid'. 
                  Am 
I lean across to take the wheel, 
                         C 
whilst so far blisters form and heal, 
                   G                                Em 
compose a mental list of subtle ways to broach the point again. 

F 
Take my callous hand,sink these bloody fingers, 
Am 
Too many flesh suppers, 

Too many scents linger. 
F                     G 
Take my callous hand,sink these bloody fingers, 
F         Am 
Too many flesh suppers, 
F         Em 
Too many scents linger. 

Am                    C 
You take the bed and I'll take the floor, 
G                                Em         
I'll block the draft that comes under the door. 
Am                       C 
You take the sheets and I'll wrap in clothes,  
G              Em 
I overpack to keep out the cold. 

F 
Take my callous hand,sink these bloody fingers, 
Am 
Too many flesh suppers, 

Too many scents linger. 
F                     G 
Take my callous hand,sink these bloody fingers, 
F         Am 
Too many flesh suppers, 
F         Em 
Too many scents linger. 

F Am F Am 

C                                   F 
I plunge my hand deep like child scraping around jam jar, 
C                            Am                F 
Unwieldy as teenagers reach below his lover's belt line. 
      C                           F 
The power that I felt, when you looked me in the eye, 
               C                            Am          F 
And said 'I promise boy, I'll never let you see me cry'.  

Am F# F Dm G x3 

C F C Am F 

     C                                     F 
You don't pay back the debt you owe your parents for birth, 
C                        Am 
by giving Grandkids in return.  
      F        G Dm 
You watch them die.  
C                        F 
Through your declining eyes. 
       G                Dm 
My clandestine, broken cage, 
C                                      Am        F 
we'll keep them secret, 'cause there's no other way. 


You ripped off my flesh and my heart gripped the ribs like a prisoner.
