Bloody Nose Chords – Jack Conte

 Rests quite high in the voice, lest you're a pretty rangeful tenor, you may want to 
transpose it down a step or twelve.

 Bm G#m 
Count your bones one by one.
 Bm G#m 
Lie awake at night.
 Bm G#m 
Underground, boxed and glum,
 Bm G#m 
left you there for rot.
 G Bm Bm G#m 
All my fears are overgrown,
 Bm G#m 
will someone burn this grove?
 G Bm Cm F# Bm 
Those August nights....
           Cm F# Bm 
They burn hot as hell,
         Cm F# Bm G 
and you wake up sweating dreams.
            F# 
It casts a spell..
            Bm 
it casts a spell.


 Bm G#m 
Welcome home! It's been a while.
 Bm G#m 
Do you miss your head,
 G Bm Cm F# Bm 
with your tattered clothes
          Cm F#m Bm 
and your bloody nose?
 Cm F#m Bm G 
Aren't you glad to be rid of the smell?
        F#m Bm 
Not at all? Not at all!


 Bm G#m Bm G#m 
(doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo interlude)


      Bm G#m 
I'll miss the fog through headlight wash
     Bm G#m 
and bed and breath and touch,
 G Bm Cm F# Bm 
but I'll brave it out!
            Cm F# Bm 
Yeah, I'll brave it out!
         Cm F# Bm G Bm 
There's no use getting down.
