I met a girl a snowball in hell
           Am          D              /F#     C    D*  Eb*
she was as hard and as cracked as the liberty bell
E                                         A   A7  A6  A

      Am              D      /F#             C     /F# G  /A B

her mama called me a thief
        Am            D       /F#       C    D*  Eb*
and her dad called himself commander in chief
E                        A   A7  A6  A
I fought him off with my love
      Am                D        /F#        C   /F# G  /A B
but I knew the sense of worthlessness she'd have to rise above

E                          A   A7  A6  A
she had a dream woke up in shock
        Am           D    /F#         C    D*  Eb*
she had seen her own body outlined in chalk
E                                           A   A7  A6  A
and I split the seam, the globe that'd been spun
        Am                   D       /F#    C  /F#  G    /A  B
and her ghost beamed down to kiss me with a message from the sun
