Verse 1:
I've got you now, I'll show you all,
I'll kick out the chair, let you dangle slow,
       Am                                                E
In the back of the bus, all of us like the coats in cloak rooms,
And if you rise again, take a form I know,
The river will boil then overflow and
     Am                                                    E
The houses you're haunting will tremble with temporal hoodoos,
E                 C5        A5
I don't know about you, but I am hellbent,
A5      C5         B5          E/B
I know what it is that I must do,
E/Bb                   C5
Close your eyes when we kiss,
    A5                    C5        B5            F#5
Cuz I am prepared to set myself on fire for this,

E                          B
You will drop on all fours, get down show me what you're good for,
Sass-mouth, pink-bellied, I perceive,
A        B
And for this your naughty deed I'm throwing you over my bony knee,
E                                     B
So don't cry, don't scream, good lord, you always knew what you're in for,
G#                                  A
My belt unbuckles, so believe, you grubby little thing,
A             B                    E
I'm throwing you over my bony knee,

(For an interlude, just play the intro twice)

Verse 2:
And in your tender place, when you're safe at home,
There's a tombstone there waits of your very own,
              Am                                               E
While you're running like bees on the sheets of my sterilized room,
And in your comfy bed, air-conditioned car,
There are vapors and toxins to get you all,
        Am                                                   E
In the water you drink, in the air that you breathe, in the soil
E                                 C5
Under your shoe, I don't know about you,
    A5                     C5         B5         E/B
But I am at peace, I know what it is that I must do,
C2                        C5
I hope you're sitting down, dear,
      A5                       C5              B5            E
Come hell or high water, this sick world will know I was here,

(play chorus then go straight to outro)

E                       B
We know where you sleep, we know where you sleep,
A                       B
We know where you sleep, we know, we know,
E                       B
We know where you sleep, we know where you sleep,
G#                      A        B
We know where you sleep, we know, we know.

(play the outro twice through)

E/B  E/Bb  Am   C5  A5    E    A    B   B5    G#   C2  F#5

There is so much more to this song than what I have here, but, in all fairness, 
I'm not John Congleton.  All I can give is what I know, and from playing with the 
song, I know that if you do these finger positions with the capo on the first 
fret, you'll be in key with the song, but jamming alone, it's pretty cool sounding 
the way it is with no capo.  It's pretty difficult to decipher Congleton's jazz 
arrangements through all the characteristic dissonance, but this is pretty good 
for an acoustic rendition.  Try performing this in public, some time.  Seriously.  
It's fun.  People who aren't prepared for it react quite interestingly.  I was 
once asked to stop because the little christian lady found it too disturbing.  Enjoy.
