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

Pre-Chorus:
GbGb chord          BbmBbm chord   GbGb chord         BbmBbm chord
  It looks ugly, but it's clean,
GbGb chord    BbmBbm chord           EbmEbm chord         DbDb chord
  Oh momma, don't fuss over me.

Chorus:
            GbGb chord            BbmBbm chord              DbDb chord
The way she tells me I'm hers and she is mine
     GbGb chord              BbmBbm chord            DbDb chord
Open hand or closed fist would be fine
    GbGb chord                 EbmEbm chord                   DbDb chord
The blood is rare and sweet as cherry wine.

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

Pre-Chorus:
GbGb chord       BbmBbm chord      GbGb chord       BbmBbm chord
  But I want it, it's a crime
GbGb chord            BbmBbm chord         EbmEbm chord          DbDb chord
  That she's not around most of the time.

Chorus:
            GbGb chord            BbmBbm chord              DbDb chord
The way she shows me I'm hers and she is mine
     GbGb chord              BbmBbm chord            DbDb chord
Open hand or closed fist would be fine
GbGb chord                 EbmEbm chord                   DbDb chord
Blood is rare and sweet as cherry wine.

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

Pre-Chorus:
GbGb chord          BbmBbm chord       GbGb chord       BbmBbm chord
  And it's worth it, it's divine
GbGb chord     BbmBbm chord          EbmEbm chord          DbDb chord  
  And I have this some of the time.

Chorus:
            GbGb chord            BbmBbm chord              DbDb chord
The way she shows me I'm hers and she is mine
     GbGb chord              BbmBbm chord            DbDb chord
Open hand or closed fist would be fine
    GbGb chord                 EbmEbm chord                    DbDb chord
The blood is rare and sweet as cherry wine.
