Intro: Am  Em  G  D 

Verse:
       Am                                  Em                         
I was perched outside in the pouring rain trying to make myself a sail    
            G                                 D
Then I'll float to you my darlin' with the evening on my tail
                 Am                              Em
Although not the most honest means of travel It gets me there nonetheless
          G                                 D
I'm a heartless man at worst, babe and a helpless one at best

Chorus:
               Am                       Em
Darling I'll bathe your skin I'll even wash your clothes
              G                   D
Just give me some candy, before I go
                  Am                             Em
Oh, darling I'll kiss your eyes and lay you down on your rug                
               G                   D
Just give me some candy after my heart                  

Verse:
        Am                           Em
Oh I'm often false explaining but to her it plays out all the same
        G                                D
And although I'm left defeated it get's held against my name
                 Am                        Em 
I know you got plenty to offer baby but I guess I've taken quite enough
       G                                       D
Well I'm some stain there on your bedsheet you're my diamond in the rough
         
Chorus:
               Am                       Em
Darling I'll bathe your skin I'll even wash your clothes
              G                   D
Just give me some candy, before I go
                  Am                             Em
Oh, darling I'll kiss your eyes and lay you down on your rug                 
               G                   D
Just give me some candy after my heart

    G                             D        G
I know that the writings on the wall

Chorus:
               Am                       Em
Darling I'll bathe your skin I'll even wash your clothes
              G                   D
Just give me some candy, before I go
                  Am                             Em

  1. I have been using Cmaj7 instead of Em

  2. I prefer using D7 (2020) instead of D actually :-)

  3. Hey! I think it may be DD-UDU
