   (D)      G        C                D
        Oh, the snot has caked against my pants
        G              C    D
        It has turned into crystal
                   G        C             D
        There's a bluebird sitting on a branch
        G             C       D
        I guess I'll take my pistol
        G           C      D
        I've got it in my hand
        G            C      D

        The end-end-end-end-end-end-end-end
Verse 2:
   Yes I've seen you sitting on the couch
        I recognize your artillery
        I have seen you many times before

        And I was on my land
        Why can't you understand
