Intro: Dm, C, Am, F

Dm                    C
His father was a drinker 
            Am                    F
And his mother cried in bed
Dm                            C
Folding John Wayne's t-shirts
               Am                    F
When the swingset hit his head

Dm                         C
The neighbors they adored him 
           Am                   F
For his humor and his conversation

Dm                                     C
Look underneath the house there 
                    Am                           F
Find the few living things, rotting fast, in their sleep 
Oh, the dead

Dm                 C
Twenty-seven people 
Even more, they were boys
With their cars, summer jobs 
Oh my God

Are you one of them?

[ Tab from: ]
Dm                           C
He dressed up like a clown for them 
             Am                           F
With his face paint white and red

Dm                           C
And on his best behavior 
      Am                        F
In a dark room on the bed 
He kissed them all

Dm                              C
He'd kill ten thousand people 
With a sleight of his hand
              F                                  Dm
Running far, running fast to the dead

Dm                          C
He took off all their clothes for them
He put a cloth on their lips
          F                                   Dm
Quiet hands, quiet kiss on the mouth

Dm                   C
And in my best behavior 
        Am                 F
I am really just like him
Dm                      C
Look beneath the floor boards 
            Am                F
For the secrets I have hid
