Eating Paper

	  		

Standard tuning 

Couldn't find a tab for this fantastic song so I made it myself. Thought I'd share. 
I never used power tab before so the measures aren't quite divided up right, but hey 
it sounds right.

Verse 

By now you probably have noticed 
And I'm so relieved 
To see while you have been leaving me be 
That my younger sisters and brothers 
Have all grown to be 
Stronger and smarter than you would believe 


Chorus 1 

But like all good things, it did not last 
Your appetite returns so fast 
And just in time for supper 


Verse 

Why would would you sweat my confession 
What I claim to be 
When you see the fruit as is hangs on the tree 


Chorus 2 

While this may be the rare occasion 
Where high tide lifts all boats 
I'm keeping my head down under the water 
'Cause man, I've gotta get there on my own 

Verse 

I've done all you have required 
Still you feel the need 
To quiz me on books I did not claim to read 

Well alright, John Henry dies in a tunnel 
Hammer in his hand 
Steam drill lives on to make fools of every man 


Chorus 1 

When I lived alone I did as I please 
Eating paper I swung from the trees 
But like all good things it did not last 
Your appetite returns so fast 
And just in time for supper
