G†† C x4

 

G††††††††††††††††††††††† C

somewhere under all this junk's

G†††††††††††††††††††† C

a cage bought for the lemming

 

G†† C x2

 

G†††††††††††††††††† C

and hereís a box of bottles

G††††††††††††††††††††††† †††D

that never made it from the room

G††††††††† C†††

skillfully defaced

G††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Em

there hangs a shot of Peggy Fleming

C†††††††† D††††††††††††††††††††††† C

and dusty tapestries donít let the light invade the gloom

 

G†† C x4

 

G††††† ††††††C

cd's without cases

G††††††††††††††††† C

cover every single surface

 

G†† C x2

 

G††††††††††††††††† C†††††††††

cases without cdís are

G††††††††††††††††† D

strewed across the floor

G†††††††††††††††††††† C

magazines and plastic thing

G†††††††††††††††††††† Em

and too much stuff to mention

C†††††† D†††††††††††††††† C†††††††††

sits in piles while Peggy smiles and stares out through the door

 

†††††††††† G

and when I hear

††† C

you calling

†††† G††††††††††† Em

over air and over wire

D†† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††C

I will take a running leap and barely clear the fire

G††††††††††††††††††††† C

others watch and point and laugh

D††††††††††††††††† Em

he stumbles now he slips and

D†††††††††††††††††† G†††††† C

Peggy I will follow in thin air and off of cliffs

D††††††††††† G

Peggy I will follow

 

G†† C x4

 

somewhere under all this dust

are long lost good intentions

 

looking for them now

will only agitate the mess

I got a note from Peggy

you were indirectly mentioned

 

and why you changed her image

I donít even want to guess

 

and when I hear

you calling

over air and over wire

I will take a running leap and barely clear the fire

others watch and point and laugh

he stumbles now he slips

and Peggy I will follow in thin air and off of cliffs

Peggy I will follow

 

and when I hear you calling

over air and over wire

I will take a running leap and barely clear the fire

others watch and point and laugh

he stumbles now he slips

and Peggy I will in thin air and off of cliffs

Peggy I will follow
