Am      G            F
I saw a ghost on the stairs
    Am            G          F
And sheets on the tables and chairs
    Am         G            F         
The silverware swam with the sharks in the sink
     Am          F            G
Even so, I don't know what to think


Dm        C       G
I've been longing for
F           C                G 
Daisies to push through the floor
   Dm      C                Bb         F         
And I wish plant life would grow all around me
   Eb            Bb           F
So I won't feel dead anymore
   Eb            Bb           F
So I won't feel dead anymore


Am      G             F
I saw a bear in the den
Am        G              F
Reading my textbooks again
     Am              G                F
That bats flowed like traffic as they poured from the attic
       Am            F             G
Heaven knows, I could really use a friend


C          C               Dm               F 
I'd rather waltz than just walk through the forest
    C              C         F           G
The trees keep the tempo and they sway in time
C          C              Dm         F
Quartet of crickets chime in for the Chorus
  Dm         C             F                   G
If I were to pluck on their heartstrings would you strum on mine?

Interlude -x2-: Dm  Am  C  G

Dm        C       G
I've been longing for
F           C                G 
Daisies to push through the floor
   Dm      C                Bb         F         
And I wish plant life would grow all around me
   Eb            Bb           F
So I won't feel dead anymore
   Eb            Bb           F
So I won't feel dead anymore


     Dm        Eb         Bb                  F
Your spirit is sweet, so pull off your sheet
    Ab           Eb          F
And give me a ghost of a smile
Dm                Eb               Bb           F
Show me your teeth 'cause you're teddy beneath
   Ab              Eb             F
So just grin and bear it a while
Ab             Eb              F
Just grin and bear it a while


Bb          Bb               Cm                Eb
I'd rather waltz than just walk through the forest 
    Bb              Bb          Eb               F 
The trees keep the tempo and they sway in time
Bb          Bb              Cm         Eb
Quartet of crickets chime in for the Chorus
   Cm        Bb              Eb                  F   
If I were to pluck on their heartstrings would you strum on mine?

Interlude -x2-: Cm  Gm  Bb  F

   Cm        Bb       F
To-night I'm busting out
   Dm       C       G   
Of this old haunted house
           Cm      Bb       F  
'Cause I'm sick of waiting for
        Dm     C       Bb         F
All the spider webs to grow all around me
       Eb            Bb           F
'Cause I don't feel dead anymore
    Eb        Gm            F 
And I'm not afraid anymore


Bb          Bb               Cm                Eb
I'd rather waltz than just walk through the forest 
    Bb              Bb          Eb               F 
The trees keep the tempo and they sway in time
Bb          Bb              Cm         Eb
Quartet of crickets chime in for the Chorus
   Cm        Bb              Eb                  F                 
If I were to pluck on their heartstrings would you strum on mine?

   Cm        Bb                   Eb             F                 Bb
If I were to pluck on their heartstrings would you strum on mine?
