Captain Madness

by Megan Slankard


intro:  G   Am7 (x02213)  CaddG (x32013)  CaddG   repeat

Em          D
Morning is born
Am7                      C
Gabriella wasn't sure if she was really sleeping

Em          D
Doing her chores
Am7                         C
Like watching neighbor's tv through the kitchen window
Em    D    (Em - Cmaj7 - Em)*   D        *emphasis on bass note on 5th string
Yeah

Em          
The door growled on its hinges
D
Early wind has searching fingers
Am7                            C
Gabriella hung the black laundry dry

Em                                 D
There's dead wood burning out here shout out
  Am7                    C
Out here come beautiful fireflies

G                                 Am7
As far as I can get, she says, on one tank of gas
C
When I'm with Captain Madness

Is it as much as I can live before I vanish in a guess

When I'm with Captain Madness

Em     D    (Em - Cmaj7 - Em)*   D   (x2)

Em     D
On the cusp
Am7                       C
Of   Aquar-i-us Captain's not with the status quo gurus

Em         
He keeps mixing life and love with quick cement
         D
Like her heart is vacant room to rent
         Am7             C
And he stirs it with a wooden spoon



As far as I can get, she said, on one tank of gas

When I'm with Captain Madness

It's as much as I can give before I vanish in a guess

When I'm with Captain Madness

I'm packin' up my broom and my pointed shoes

And sail from Captain Madness

I must be on my way but did love to be with you

My Captain Madness


Em     D    (Em - Cmaj7 - Em)*   D   (x2)


Bass notes:   D  C  B  A
You are a hollow man
D  C  B  A
I am hollow too
D  C  B  A
Doubt keeps dripping through these cracks
Am7
I don't know how it happened
C
I never cast a spell on you



As far as I can get on one tank of gas

When I'm with Captain Madness

As much as I can love before I vanish in a guess

When I'm with Captain Madness

I'm packin' up my broom and my pointed shoes

And sail from Captain Madness

And I must be on my way but I did love to be with you

My Captain Madness

Yeah
