HAIRSHIRT

{This song repeats these 8 measures throughout the verses:
G / / / G / / / A7 / / / A7 / / / C / / / C / / / G / / / G / / /}
> 
> I am not the type of dog
> That could keep you waiting
> For no good reason
> Run a carbon-black test on my jaw 
> And you will find it's all been said before
> 
  G    A7             C                      Am
> I can swing my megaphone and long arm the rest
        Am
> It's easier and better
                             C      C
> To just beat it from the chest
> Of desire       G
> 
 {verse}
> I could walk into this room
> And the waves of conversation are enough
> To knock you down in the undertow
> So alone so alone in my life
> Feed me banks of light
> And hang your hairshirt on the lowest rung 
> It's a beautiful life
> And I can hang my hairshirt 
> Away up high in the attic of the wrong dog's life chest
> Or bury it at sea
> All my life I've searched for this
> 
> Here I am here I am in your life
> It's a beautiful life
> My life
> It's a beautiful life
> Your life
