[Intro] 
G G Em C/G G


[Verse]
G                      G
Her eyes and words are so icy
           Em
Oh but she burns
     C/G             G
Like rum on the fire
G                    G
Hot and fast and angry
As she can be
   Em     C/G           G
I walk my days on a wire.
C/G         Em C/G           Em
It looks ugly, but it's clean,
C/G             Em
Oh momma, don't fuss over me.


[Chorus]
G                        Em
The way she tells me I'm hers and she is mine
G                    Em
Open hand or closed fist would be fine
    C/G               Am                    G
The blood is rare and sweet as cherry wine.


[Verse]
G               G
Calls of guilty thrown at me
                  Em
All while she stains
      C/G               G
The sheets of some other
G               G
Thrown at me so powerfully
              Em              C/G                G
Just like she throws with the arm of her brother.
C/G          Em C/G           Em
But I want it,    it's a crime
    C/G               Em
That she's not around most of the time.


[Chorus]
G                        Em
The way she shows me I'm hers and she is mine
G                   Em
Open hand or closed fist would be fine
    C/G               Am                   G
The blood is rare and sweet as cherry wine.


[Instrumental bridge]
G G Em C/G G


[Verse]
G                     G
Her fight and fury is fiery
            Em
Oh but she loves
     C/G                 G
Like sleep to the freezing
G                   G
Sweet and right and merciful
            Em
I'm all but washed
        C/G                G
In the tide of her breathing.
C/G              Em C/G           Em
And it's worth it,     it's divine
C/G                 Em
And I can have this some of the time.


[Chorus]
G                        Em
The way she shows me I'm hers and she is mine
G                   Em
Open hand or closed fist would be fine
    C/G               Am                    G
The blood is rare and sweet as cherry wine.
