MONKEY ON A WIRE
Written by Shane Nicholson

4 beats per chord (cut time feel)
` = 2 beats
(capo at second fret)

VERSE:
Em         Em        Am             Am
  They make  no sound  they ring no bell
`Am     `G/B  C           C               Em
 Leaving no   traces they got no tales to tell
Em         Em       Am             Am
  They find  no home  they make no love
`Am     `G/B  C            C           Em
 Casting no   shadow while balancing a-bove

CHORUS:
Em    Em        Am           Am
Oh-oh here I go me and my de-sire
`Am   `G/B   C             Dsus2       Em
 Every-one's got their own monkey on a wire
Em    Em         Am            Am
Oh-oh down below leader of the choir is
`Am     `G/B     C    Dsus2
 Waiting for the next monkey on a

VERSE:
Em         Em       Am          Am
  They keep  no fear  no second prize
`Am     `G/B  C*         C               Em
 Walking like Jesus with voodoo in their eyes
Em         Em        Am              Am
  They come  in green  they leave in black
`Am     `G/B  C          C                Em
 Holding dead roses with bullets in their back

CHORUS:
Em    Em        Am           Am
Oh-oh here I go me and my de-sire
`Am   `G/B   C*            Dsus2       Em
 Every-one's got their own monkey on a wire
Em    Em         Am               Am
Oh-oh down below racked up in the fire

 Walking like Jesus going straight on into Hell
