Jonesy Boy


Key: D
INTRO: E A E
*Fill: E-F#-G#

A
Cats hissing in the dark
C#m
turned-over garbage cans around the park
D                                  G   
the dangling, brittle scab on your knee
F#                B               F#
Oh, you.re pretty cocksure, son
                B                  F#
You.re like a Villonian singing nun
                    B            E      *
Pray you wash your hair out in a sink


A
Armed with a mandolin
C#m
A snotted rag and a Delphic hymn
D                              G    F#
Shaking off the dew before it sticks
            B
Oh, give us a melody
F#                        B
before they send us back to the sea
F#                   B                  E       A   E   *
Replace these wooden legs for ones that kick


::Chorus::

A   E
Oh, Jonesy
A            D        E          *
Oh,          Jonesy   Boy
A   E
Oh, Jonesy
A            D        E     A   E   *
Oh,          Jonesy   Boy


A
I can.t remember before
C#m
there ever was war
D                        G      F#
My boyhood home is now a jail
                    B 
They paved over the ol' creek
F#                       B
to make a road for lumbering teak
F#                 B           E      *
And shipped off my family by rail


A
Oh, I hope you stay a boy
C#m
at least to bring some old men joy
D                                G           F#
Even just to watch you tune your strings
                    B
They.re blowing the shofar now
F#                  B
Off to stick another sow
F#                 B           E       A   E   *
The soil is hungry again for offerings
