Coconut Skins Chords
Coconut Skins

I know I probably have this all wrong but I think it sounds pretty decent. 
I hope it's easier for some of the beginners, I think everyone should enjoy
this song and it's easy to play! Please leave a good rating! Thanks!

G          G/F#      Em           G/E      G/F#    G
   You can hold  her hand     and show her how you cry 
  G        G/F#    Em                                     G/E    G/F#   G

     G      G/F#     Em                       G/E     G/F#   G
Well you can brave decisions       before you crumble up   inside

Spend your time  asking everyone else's permission and then run away and hide


G       G/F#   Em                     G/E   G/F#   G    
You can sit on chimneys      put some fire up your ass
           G     G/F#        Em                              G/E  G/F#  G
No need to know  what you're doing or waiting for     but if any  one  should ask?

Tell them I've been licking coconut skins      and we've been hanging out

Tell them God just dropped by to forgive our sins    and relieve  us   our doubt

G       G/F#     Em                  G/E    G/F#   G 
You can hold her eggs       But your basket has a hole 
        G      G/F#    Em
You can lie between her legs And go lookin' for: 
                G         G/F#   G
Tell her you're searching for    her soul! 
G      G/F#      Em                         G/E    G/F#   G
You can wait for ages        and watch your compost turn   to coal 
   G     G/F#  Em                   G/E    G/F#    G
But time is contagious:        Everybody's getting old. 

G       G/F#   Em                     G/E   G/F#   G    
You can sit on chimneys      put some fire up your ass
           G     G/F#        Em                              G/E  G/F#  G
No need to know  what you're doing or looking for     but if any  one  should ask?
          G         G/F#    Em                     G/E   G/F#    G
Tell them I've been cooking coconut skins      and we've been hanging out
          G        G/F#    Em                              G/E   G/F#  G
