F Bb F Bb F

F
Recite the songs that kept me whole
On the day I hand over command control
C                Bb              F
Try to let them all flow into this one

F
List alphabetically
The toxins the doctors found in me
Bb   C                G
   During my time in prison


G#                 F#          F
 Count my fingers, every last one
F-F#-F (quick slide)
 When I get done


F
Clean the floors well, sweep and swab
Do a thorough job
C                   Bb             F
Leave the old place nicer than I found it

F
Wish well as the neighbors cheer and shout
Finally taking their earplugs out
Bb                C                      G
Things were even worse here than they sounded


G#              F#                 F
 Grim-faced pilots, back from the bombing run
F-F#-F
When I get done


Dm                     Gm
 Take a picture or two
Am                     Dm
 Just to remember the view
F#m                     C#m
 Leave a mark on the door
D                               A                   G
 As an empty warning sign from one who's gone before
             F       Eb
But isn't here anymore


                                F
Let the crust form on my skin in the sun
F-F#-F
When I get done


F
Sweep the front porch, make it new
Put the broom away when I get through
   C                Bb               F
No passersby need know of my lonely tenure

F
All this riot of light, the shock of leaves
Wind rippling in my sleeves
Bb                  C            G                                      
Swirling against my skin as in a blender


G#                       F#           F
Red thread drying behind me, hand-spun
F-F#-F
When I get done

F# F F# F
