I'm a skeleton, I'm a skeleton man
Hold my skeleton,hold my skeleton hand

VERSE 1 
G                                    F                  C
I met a child in the hills from the people of the corn
G                               F            Eb Bb F
It's been 800 years since this child was born
G            F                  C
And in his ribs I found a pearl
G         F                  Eb Bb F     
An offering from the corn world 

CHORUS

BRIDGE
Bb    C      Eb    F                 G
    Hold my hand, we'll walk in the hot sun
Bb    C      Eb    F      G
    Hold my hand, in the hot sand

SOLO CHORDS: G Eb D F Bb G F D Dsus D

CHORUS, then play chorus without lyrics

VERSE 2 (Same chords as first verse)
Down in the valley where there used to be the farms
Dr. Digger found a room full of arms
And now there's just a dog that barks
Chained to a one-man trailer park
Thought I heard him say...

BRIDGE

CHORUS (play 3X)
