Who Fell Asleep In

	  		Probably not perfect, so corrections are welcome.  
When there's a G* that means I slide my pinky up the E string  
from the 3rd fret up to the 5th, 6th, and 7th, back down to the 3rd and up to the 5th and 6th again 
before the next chord. 


                              G        G 
She turned her back on the church and put all her faith in me 
        C                           Em                    Em     G* 
At the back of the chapel where I taught her to screw and to blaspheme 
                              G                G 
We turned our backs to the church, with our trousers around our knees 
          C                             Em                 Em   G* 
While screaming the scriptures she said I was her favourite heresy 


Am 
In a note I read: 
     C 
"If you should go blind and deaf  
        G                                 Em 
I'll cleanse and I'll bathe you and I'll cook for you daily. 
        Am                            C 
I will take a dry ballpoint pen and trace on your chest 
            G                          Em 
All of the same conversations that we have now in bed." 
                     Am                       C              G 
I don't mean to be selfish; but I think I'd sooner just be dead 


C            Em            G                         C           Em       G 
Behind the tennis court alongside the river, not a single live flower to see 
C            Em            G                         C           Em          G 
This is the one girl who woke up from all that, and now falls asleep next to me 
                  Em                 G            Am                             C 
But I swear now, every time that I kiss her, she feels her god breathe on her shoulder 
                                        G 
It pains me, but I'm sure she's still yours 


                       C                Em                          G* 
She said she wanted a sea burial, not grass and hypodermics to her hips 
G                             G 
I pruned the ivy from your grandmother's tomb 
       C                             Em                                       G  Bb  G  Bb 
More tender and careful than the superstitious ripped you from your mothers womb   


Am 
In a note I wrote: 
     C                                G                       Em 
"I think too much about the end, but being around it made me feel like I'm coping. 
         Am                     C 
Now when I view the cemetery I don't see headstones, 
           G                                 Em 
I see rows of engraved milk teeth, hungry, waiting for me" 
                  Am                C                G                 
And though I am fearful, I think I just crave the relief. 


C            Em             G                         C                Em        G 
Behind the tennis court, alongside the river, paper flower's still a beautiful thing 
C            Em            G                         C          Em           G 
This is the one girl who woke up from all that, and now falls asleep next to me 
                  Em                G              Am                            C 
But I swear now, every time that I kiss her, she feels her god breathe on her shoulder 
                                        G 
It pains me, but I'm sure she's still yours. 

(slide pinky up from 3rd to 5th, 7th, 10th four times)
