Bm          G7
Living in a box by the rails
Bm                  G7
Only thing you use, you don't fail
Bm                     G7
When you live in a box by the rails
A                     G                     D
Don't comb your hair, don't comb your tail

D
Sweep my mess away
D
Leave my body, leave my bones
D
Leave me holding, leave my soul
A                Bm
Leave me nothing I don't need at all
G7             D
Nothing I don't need at all

Yay from the bins, in the parks
Made off with the raps after dark
Never left a trail, never made his mark
When he gave me the raps after dark
Calling all his friends, never made him sad
With all the things he never had
It only made them feel so bad
For having the things he never had

Sweep my mess away
Leave my body, leave my bones
Leave me holding, leave my soul
Leave me nothing I don't need at all
Nothing I don't need at all

If you stay in that box overnight
Don't get out til it gets light
There's not much lost of the secret life
It's never gone wrong and it's never gone right
Now some more flowers grow
The palm gets eaten by a few more throws
An old man's box is full of bones
See his footprints see his stones

Sweep my mess away
Leave my body, leave my bones
Leave me holding, leave my soul
Leave me nothing I don't need at all
Nothing I don't need at all

Sweep my mess away
Leave my body, leave my bones
Leave me holding, leave my soul
Leave me nothing I don't need at all
Nothing I don't need at all
