Cannibals Hymn Chords

   
Cannibal's Hymn (Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds)
Album: Abbatoir Blues/Lyre of Orpheus

Intro (Em)

VERSE (Em)
You have a heart and i have a key, Lie back and let me unlock you 
Those heathens you hang with down by the sea, All they want to do is defrock you 

(Am)
I know a river, where we can dream 
It will swell up, burst it's banks, 
babe, and rock you 

(Em)

CHORUS (Bm-C x2 / G-D / Em-C / F-D)
But if you're gonna dine with them cannibals
Sooner or later, darling, you're gonna get eaten
But I'm glad you've come around, here with your animals
And your heart that is bruised but unbeaten
And beating like a drum

(Em) *enter heavy drums*

VERSE (Em)
I will sit like a bird on a fence, sing you songs with a happy ending
Swoop down and tell you that it don't make sense, to attack the very thing you're defending
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/n/nick_cave_and_the_bad_seeds/cannibals_hymn_crd.html ]
(Am)
Didn't I just buy that dress for you?
That pink paper pinafore that you keep mending

(Em)

CHORUS (Bm-C x2 / G-D / Em-C / F-D)
Well, if you're gonna dine with the cannibals
Sooner or later, darling, you're gonna get eaten
But I'm glad you've come around, here with your animals
And your heart that is banging and beating
And banging like a gong

(Em) 
(Em / F-D) x2

VERSE (Em)
I can see that they've hurt you, dear. Here is some moonlight to cloak us
And I will never desert you here, Unpetaled among the crocus

(Am)
Allow me, my love, to allay your fear
As I swim, in and out of focus

(Em)

CHORUS (Bm-C x2 / G-D / Em-C / F-D x4)
But if you're gonna dine with the cannibals
Sooner or later, darling, you're gonna get eaten
But I'm glad you've come around, here with your animals
And your heart that is bruised but bleating
And bleeding like a lamb
Banging like a gong
Beating like a drum
