Intro: D G A

D G A
you slept in your overalls
D G A
after the wrecking ball
D G A
bereft you of house and home
D G A
and left you with sweet fuck-all
Bm
so we got in your car
G
with our kickabout hearts
Em A
and we hollered out 'sweet clementine'

tell your mom to marry us
a candle to carry us
with cans on our bicycle fenders
so sweet and hilarious
and we'll find us a home
built of packaging foam
that will be there 'til after we die

and, i'll play the clarinet
use clamshells for castinets
we play with our bags on our shoulders
my sweet lady lioness
and i watch as you sleep
so indelibly deep
and i hum to you sweet clementine

If you're playing without a capo, the 1st section is G C D and the
second section is Em C Am D. That's all there is to it.
