Capo 1

Intro: D A D A D A E

F#m   E     D     A
Downtown, Trinity Church
F#m        D
What's one penitent more?
F#m   E     D     A
While she was left in the lurch
F#m        D
He was washing ashore

E                            F#m   E
And it's true, you could tell her everything
D             A          E
She never wanted to know
D            A         D              A          
Let her shoot, let her have her massacre
D                  A                   E
Blood dripping down in the snow

Ring on, Liberty Bell
That's affixed to the prow
Neptune's watery hell
Lives inside of you now

E                            F#m   E
And it's true, you could tell her everything
D             A          E
She never wanted to know
D            A         D              A      
Let her shoot, let her have her massacre
D                  A           E        A
Blood dripping down, leaving trails in the snow

F#m   E     D     A
She left offerings I
F#m        D
Didn't want at my door
F#m   E     D     A
Two birds baked in a pie
F#m        D
What a grim metaphor

     D                    A              D              A
And you spill and confess and you clean up the mess, 'cause
D           A         E
That's how you atone
                   D         A            D          A
But when it's "Bless me, Father," then I suspect
D         A               E
She'll never leave you alone

Instr: F#m E D - A  F#m E D

E                            F#m   E
And it's true, you could tell her everything
D             A          E
She never wanted to know
D            A         D              A      
Let her shoot, let her have her massacre
D                  A                E        A
Blood dripping down, leaving trails in the snow
