the Mountain Goats - Yam, the King of Crops

E        C  Am       Am7   
felt sick, felt good
E             C Am       Am7
the heat burns, old wood
E               C  Am                Am7
muscles in my arms pump like machines
E                  C  Am              Am7
the jericho palm tree is plush and green

bright sun, the new day
i felt sick in a good way
felt the fever climb when you came down
all the way across town

and you brought me a plate of sweet potatoes

sun fading overhead
the sunset, bright red
your green eyes, your smooth walk
fresh tomato, celery stalk, you cook
pot of pari basmati rice
i felt good, you looked nice
you stood like galatea, over me
fried garlic, kimchi
and you brought me a plate of sweet potatoes
