Blitzen Trapper - Furr

           D          G     D     A    A     
Yeah, when I was only se-   ven- teen     
        D               G     D     A   A      
I could hear the angels whis- per- ing    
     G               D                  G      D    A    
So I droned into the words and wandered aimlessly about    
       G               D                    A   A      
Until I heard my mother shouting through the fog    
          D             G       D     A   A      
It turned out to be the howling of a dog    
     G           D                    G       D        A    
Or a wolf to be exact, the sound sent shivers down my back    
          G              D               A    A      
But I was drawn into the pack and before long    
       D                G      D           A    A      
They allowed me to join in and sing their song    
            G                  D                   G      D        A    
So from the cliffs and highest hill, yeah we would gladly get our fill    
        G             D               A   A      
Howling endlessly and shrilly at the dawn     
      D                  G       D           A     A      
And I lost the taste for judging right from wrong     
        G                  D                G              D       A    
For my flesh had turned to fur, yeah and my thoughts, they surely were    
G            D            A   A      
instinct and obedience to God    
     
Interlude -x2-: D  G  D  A  A    
     
Chorus:    
        G         D            G     D    A    
You can wear your fur like the river on fire    
        G         D            G      D      A    
But you better be sure if your makin' God a liar    
      G            D              G     D    A             
I'm a rattlesnake, babe, I'm like fu-el on fire    
             G          D    
So if you're gonna' get made    
          G     D    D   D      A       A    A     A      
Don't be afraid of what you've learned          
     
     
       D                 G     D     A     A       
On the day that I turned twen- ty-  three     
      D              G       D        A    A      
I was curled up underneath a dogwood tree     
     G          D                   G     D     A    
When suddenly a girl, with skin the color of a pearl     
         G                  D              A   A      
Wandered aimlessly, but she didn't seem to see    
        D                 G      D          A  A      
She was listenin' for the angels just like me    
     G                 D                   G          D      A    
So I stood and looked about, I brushed the leaves off of my snout    
           G               D                    A     A      
And then I heard my mother shouting through the trees     
                D                 G     D       A     A       
You should have seen that girl go shaky at the knees     
     G               D               G     D      A    
So I took her by the arm, we settled down upon a farm     
               G              D             A       A      
And raised our children up as gently as you pleased    
     
Interlude -x2-: D  G  D  A  A    
     
           G                 D                  G       D        A    
And now my fur has turned to skin and I've been quickly ushered in     
     G               D             A    A      
To a world that I confess I do not know    
            D                G        D            A    A       
But I still dream of running careless through the snow    
                G                  D                G       D        A    
An' through the howlin' winds that blow, across the ancient distant flow    
            G              D             A    A      
It fill our bodies up like water till we know    
     
Interlude -x2-: D  G  D  A  A    
     
Chorus:    
        G         D            G     D    A    
You can wear your fur like the river on fire    
        G         D            G      D      A    
But you better be sure if your makin' God a liar    
      G            D              G     D    A             
I'm a rattlesnake, babe, I'm like fu-el on fire    
             G          D    
So if you're gonna' get made    
          G     D    D   D      A       A    A     A      
Don't be afraid of what you've learned     
     
Outro: G
