Intro: Gb Bbm Db Gb Bbm Db Gb Ebm Db

Verse:
    Db                  Db         
Her eyes and words are so icy
           Bbm
Oh but she burns
     Gb          Db
Like rum on the fire
Db                Db
Hot and fast and angry
   Db
As she can be
Bbm        Gb         Db
I walk my days on a wire.

Pre-Chorus:
Gb          Bbm   Gb         Bbm
  It looks ugly, but it's clean,
Gb    Bbm           Ebm         Db
  Oh momma, don't fuss over me.

Chorus:
            Gb            Bbm              Db
The way she tells me I'm hers and she is mine
     Gb              Bbm            Db
Open hand or closed fist would be fine
    Gb                 Ebm                   Db
The blood is rare and sweet as cherry wine.

Verse:
Db               Db
Calls of guilty fall on me
Db             Bbm
All while she stains
    Gb              Db
The sheets of some other
Db               Db
Thrown at me so powerfully
Db             Bbm              Gb          Db
Just like she throws with the arm of her brother.

Pre-Chorus:
Gb       Bbm      Gb       Bbm
  But I want it, it's a crime
Gb            Bbm         Ebm          Db
  That she's not around most of the time.

Chorus:
            Gb            Bbm              Db
The way she shows me I'm hers and she is mine
     Gb              Bbm            Db
Open hand or closed fist would be fine
Gb                 Ebm                   Db
Blood is rare and sweet as cherry wine.

Verse:
    Db              Db
Her fight and fury is fiery
Db          Bbm
Oh but she loves
     Gb            Db
Like sleep to the freezing
Db                   Db
Sweet and right and merciful
Db           Bbm
I'm all but washed
       Gb           Db
In the tide of her breathing.

Pre-Chorus:
Gb          Bbm       Gb       Bbm
  And it's worth it, it's divine
Gb     Bbm          Ebm          Db  
  And I have this some of the time.

Chorus:
            Gb            Bbm              Db
The way she shows me I'm hers and she is mine
     Gb              Bbm            Db
Open hand or closed fist would be fine
    Gb                 Ebm                    Db
The blood is rare and sweet as cherry wine.
