Faithless Bacchant Song
by The Mountain Goats
tabbed by Jonathan Bliss
      and Andy Moskowitz

 In C#.  Capo at first fret and play in C.
 Intro:  C G F
 C G
 F
 somewhere in the damn forest...
 C G F
 where the fat pines look like my brother's arms,
 C
 thick and ripe
 C7 F
 i'm trying to get out for days and these green vines
 keep getting in my way

 C G F
 i came up to a clearing.
 C G F
 where the crosswinds cooled my face.
 C C7
 i would've sat down there in the middle,
 F
 i would've rested just a little,

 but for the fire-bellied toads.
 CGF
 see the ground was wet and they were everywhere.
 CGF
 fire-bellied toad number five
 from what may or may not have been unlimited series
 CGF
 opened up his little mouth
 as though to speak,
 and then he spoke
 and then he spoke to me, and he said,

 CG
 "you can't holler down our rain barrel.
 CF
 you can't climb our apple tree.
 CG
 i don't want to play in your yard.
 CF
 if you won't be good to me."
                          C
 honey it was downright creepy.
 GF C
