                  ONION SOUP 
                 VIC CHESNUTT

INTRO:
F C Bb Am
F C Bb
F C Bb Am
F C Bb
F C Bb Am
F C Bb


VERSE:
F   C         Bb Am
  Thin and unshaved, 
F   C           Bb
  Drunk and mysterious
F C            Bb Am
    Oh, I must sa-ay 
 F    C       Bb
Lifestyle is curious


BREAK:
 Am                         Dm
With a little touch of the sniffles
 Bb          F
And filthy socks
 Am               Dm
Gnawed, crumbled fingernails
Bb                       C
  Never doing tomahawk chops


VERSE:
F C        Bb Am   
   A flaky he-ad   
F  C           Bb
  Dandruff is distinguished
F C           Bb Am  
   Lacquer is re-d  
 F C          Bb
Va-in is the varnish


BREAK:
Am                Dm
  What is at the root of this
 Bb                  F
She'll say, whatcha got
 Am                Dm
What participle do you possess
 Bb                       C  Bb  C
She'll say, which I have not


VERSE:
F C             Bb Am
   One blustery da-ay 
F        C
We rode out
        Bb
To the Meadowlands
F    C            Bb Am
 We saw and were ama-zed
      F         C         Bb
Then hauled it back into town again


BREAK:
Am                   Dm
   Mississippi is a mess sometimes
Bb                    F
And not only when it rains
     Am                        Dm
How come you went back to that malaria island
       Bb                   C     Bb  C
'Cause our friendship is strained


INSTRUMENTAL:
F C Bb Am
F C Bb
F C Bb Am
F C Bb


VERSE:
F C                Bb       
   Those were the days
      F       C     Bb
When you were so cosmopolitan
F C               Bb Am
    These are the da-ys
    F        C         Bb
My letters they're so maudlin


BREAK:
Am                       Dm
I wrote you an eloquent postcard once
            Bb                   F
About this most exquisite onion soup
Am                     Dm
But of course I never mailed it though
               Bb                C    Bb  C   F
'Cause it was your turn in the loop, loop oh ah


VERSE:
  C             Bb       
Those were the days
      F       C     Bb
When you were so cosmopolitan
F C               Bb Am
    These are the da-ys
    F        C                   Bb     Bb
My letters they're increasingly maudlin
