Note: There's a nice little open string strum after the Asus2 that makes it sound cool.

E    Cmaj7  Asus2  (x2)

E                             Cmaj7  Asus2
My name is Leslie Anne Levine
My mother birthed me down a dry ravine
My mother birthed me far too soon
E                        B     Asus2
Born at nine and dead at noon

A                                           C#m
Fifteen years gone now, I still wander this parapet
                    A
And shake my rattle bone
A                                            C#m
Fifteen years gone now, I still cling to the petticoats
       C        B         E
Of the girl who died with me

E    Cmaj7  Asus2  (x2)

On the roofs above the streets
The only love I've known's a chimney sweep
Lost and lodged inside a flue
Back in 1842

Fifteen years gone now, I still wail from these catacombs
And curse my mother's name
Fifteen years gone now, still a wastrel mesallied
Has brought this fate on me

E    Cmaj7  Asus2  (x2)

My name is Leslie Anne Levine
I've no one left to mourn for me
My body lies inside its grave
In a ditch not far away

Fifteen years gone now, I still wander this parapet
And shake my rattle bone
Fifteen years gone now, I still cling to the petticoats
Of the girl who died with me

E    Cmaj7  Asus2  (x2)
