***MY BLUE HEAVEN - written by Philip Chevron and Darryl Hunt
from the album "Peace And Love"

My Blue Heaven - As performed by The Pogues

INTRO: C F G (4x)

C
Alligators snap at your ankles
    F                     G
And branches snap at your brain
     C
If I ever get through this swamp alive
     F                  G
I'll nevermore pray for rain
C
This must be the place, and still
    F                 G
Somehow it don't seem right
C
That something in the moon
                   F
Could change these endless days
   G
To lonely nights

I take a stroll down by the sea
And walk along the pier
Then I slip and hit my head
Now's the time to fear

See the surface, see the rocks
See my past fly swiftly by
I feel the water in my lungs
And wake up screaming for my life

C
In my blue heaven
          F                G
There's a bottle of Pontchetrain
C
Chalmette by moonlight
   F             G
To take away the pain
C               G
Card sharks and blue harps
    F                G
And dolphins who can leap
C
In my Blue Heaven
      F
Where I can laugh
    G
And I can weep

Black shapes zip into corners
The big lads start to crawl
To holes of their own making
In the cracks within the wall

Snakes and rats and spiders
I know that they're still there
I pray to God that I may sleep
Without a hope, without a care

In my blue heaven
There's a bottle of Pontchetrain
Chalmette by moonlight
To take away the pain
Felines and sea lions
And rain on the beach
In my Blue Heaven
With angels who are out of reach

In my blue heaven
There's a bottle of Pontchetrain
Chalmette by moonlight
To take away the pain
Nightingales sing
And the bells they will ring
In my Blue Heaven
The Bells of Hell
Go ding-a-ling-a-ling
