Gumby Gumby
           F                   G
You should call your daughter again
           C  Em
Donít call me
F
Call your daughter

Em            Am
Gumby, I just canít do anything
F                 C
Canít do anything right
      Em              Am
Donít ask me, if I'll help when helping you
F                     C
Just means someone to fight 
     Em       C
It's so hard, putting on your clothes
G              Am
You donít even move to cover your skin
G                                Em  C
Why move, moving is how things begin
    Em         C
The front yard taken by the crows
G                      Am
Blackguards with their shiny pieces of tin
G       C                Em   C
So much fury you bury it in


G                Am  
Gumby, we should call your daughter 
       F                   C
Please call your daughter again 
    Em                   Am
You must see, things are getting harder
F                   C
Getting more out of hand


Em            C
Dude,  you're not even that old
Em              Am
How bad must it be to be bad as this
G       C                    Em  C
All day filling a bottomless pit
Em        C
All those trinkets bought and sold
Em                Am
All tokens you've thrown down to the abyss
Em        C                        Em  C
Thereís a bottom that youíll never hit


Em                C               Em
I donít know just how you explain this 
     C
To a kid with nowhere to live
G                 C                    Em
Tell her that the father she has means well
    F                    G
But just has nothing to give


G     C     Em
Gumby Gumby
           F                   G
You should call your daughter again
           C  Em
Donít call me
F                   G
Call your daughter again
G     C     Em
Gumby Gumby
           F                   G
You should call your daughter again
           C  Em  
Donít call me
F                   G
Call your daughter
