Lyrics

This is for cows

It's not for the size of me

Into my mouth

Nine hundred and fourteen

Try some force try to lead

The foundling die is close determinate

Raise head and stomp the blood

I'm not even sound raid

I'm alive, I got the silver

And I wonder, what will you follow?

When your head, is not in order

And I'm stomping, your little

How can you laugh

How can you lie awake

Making me drive

Making my heart a

Not too fat, not too lean

The foundling die is close excitedly

Raise head and stomp the blood

I'm not even soundly

This song is in DROP-D tuning.





The first riff is played with a sitar, but these notes should suffice for

guitar as well.
