Intro: D D  Em Em  A A

[Verse 1]
D D
And so the story goes they wore the clothes
Em Em A A
They said the things to make it seem improbable
D D Em Em A A
The whale of a lie like they hope it was
D D
And the Goodmen Tomorrow had their feet in the wallow
Em Em
And their heads of Brawn were nicer shorn
A A D D
And how they bought their positions with saccharin and trust
Em Em A A
And the world was asleep to our latent fuss
D D Em Em
.....Sighing, the swirl through the streets
A A
Like the crust of the sun

[Chorus 1]
Bm Bm
The Bewlay Brothers
A A
In our Wings that Bark
G G
Flashing teeth of Brass
F# F#
Standing tall in the dark
F#sus4 F#sus4 F# F# Asus2 Asus2
Oh, And we were Gone
G G
Hanging out with your Dwarf Men
G G G/F# G/F# Em Em
We were so turned on
C C
By your lack of conclusions

Interlude: D D Em Em A A

[Verse 2]
D D
I was Stone and he was Wax
Em Em
So he could scream, and still relax, unbelievable
A A D D Em Em A A
And we frightened the small children away
D D
And our talk was old and dust would flow through our veins
Em Em
And Lo! it was midnight back at the kitchen door
A A D D
Like the grim face on the Cathedral floor
Em Em A A D D
And the solid book we wrote cannot be found today
Em Em A A
And it was stalking time for the Moonboys

[Chorus 2]
Bm Bm
The Bewlay Brothers
A A
With our backs on the arch
G G
In the Devil-may-be-here
F# F#
But He can't sing about that
F#sus4 F#sus4 F# F# Asus2 Asus2
Oh, And we were Gone
G G
Real Cool Traders
G G G/F# G/F# Em Em
We were so Turned On
C C
You thought we were Fakers

Interlude: D D Em Em A A

[Verse 3]
D D
And now the dress is hung, the ticket pawned
Em Em
The Factor Max that proved the fact is melted down
A A D D Em Em A A
Woven on the edging of my pillow
D D
Now my Brother lays upon the Rocks
Em Em
He could be dead, He could be not, he could be You
A A D D
He's Chameleon, Comedian, Corinthian and Caricature
Em Em A A
Shooting-up Pie-in-the-Sky
D D
Bewlay Brothers
Em Em A A
In the feeble and the Bad

[Chorus 3]
Bm Bm
Bewlay Brothers
A A
In the Blessed and Cold
G G
In the Crutch-hungry Dark
F# F#
Was where we flayed our Mark
F#sus4 F#sus4 F# F# Asus2 Asus2
Oh, and we were Gone
G G
Kings of Oblivion
Em Em
We were so Turned On
C C
In the Mind-Warp Pavilion

[Outro]
Bm Bm C C
Lay me place and bake me pie
F F Bm Bm
I'm starving for me Gravy
Bm Bm C C
Leave my shoes, and door unlocked
F F Bm Bm
I might just slip away, hey
F F
Just for the Day, Hey!
Bm Bm
Hey, Please come Away, Hey!
F F
Just for the Day
Bm Bm
Please come away...
