Bait And Switch

	  		

B  F#m    A         E           B - F#m 
I finally had all my ducks in a row 
A   E 
B     F#m   A            E       B     F#m 
peace and quiet by means of subtraction. 
A   E 
B       F#m      A           E           B   F#m 
And how she got in, I'm not sure that I know. 
A    E 
B    F#m  A                E        B    F#m 
Two weeks on and my spine was in traction 
    A            E 
my eyes in a basket. 

B F#m A E (4x) 

B  F#m         A         E          B   F#m 
My gut and my heart are so out of phase 
A   E 
B        F#m      A               E       B      F#m 
And that kind of girl she ain't nobody's daughter 
A    E 
B        F#m  A              E        B    F#m 
I'm just not used to these powerful waves 
A    E 
B       F#m         A             E         B   F#m 
She's shining the brass and I'm taking on water 
      A          E 
What am I to do now? 

D  E          D         E 
 I call on a beautiful witch 
D        E      D       E         B   F#m 
  With a moral compass bait and switch 
 A    D 

B F#m A E (3x) 

then (no guitar, but if you want to play, use the same chords as previous verses B F#m A E etc) 

Hide from my psychic derailer 
Drive this car to the sea 
Spend this night as high as I can 
up a towering hemlock 

B    F#m     A            E        B   F#m 
 But it's no use I can always be found 
A    E 
B   F#m        A          E          B     F#m 
A creature of habit has no real protection 
A   E 
B      F#m        A            E            B   F#m 
 I tell her I'll leave if she don't settle down 
A   E 
B          F#m    A       E         B    F#m 
 She sees it's a lie on closer inspection 
        A            E 
Like everyone else does 

(No clue what the lyrics to this section are, album not out for another week, so I'm 
taking ones I found online!) 

D      E        D        E 
Been rubbing a terrible charm 
D      E   D     E 
Holding smoke in 

F#m     B 
my arms. 
F#m          B 
I'm just a simple man 
F#m             B 
Cursed with an honest heart 
D                 E            B 
Watch her go and tear it all apart? 

B F#m A E (8x) 

then 

D      E        D        E 
Been rubbing a terrible charm 
D      E   D     E 
Holding smoke in 

F#m     B 
my arms. 
F#m          B 
I'm just a simple man 
F#m             B 
Cursed with an honest heart 
D                 E            B 
Watch her go and tear it all apart?
