WALL SWEATS

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


         INTRO:  Em - Am(add9)


                 Em
             I.  my skin is sticky.

                 even the wall sweats.
                 Am(add9)(no3rd)
                 yet I'm happy to be here,

                 the happiest yet.
                 Am            Em
                 once I was on Venus.
                    Am             C(add9)
                 it was so hard to breathe.
                 F                Em
                 so close was the sun
                 D7            G
                 that my blood seethed.


                 Em
            II.  then there was Jupiter:

                 I weighed so much,
                 Am(add9)(no3rd)
                 I couldn't stand up

                 or raise my hand to sup.
                     Am              Em
                 the far side of the moon
                 Am           C(add9)
                 was a frozen night,
                 F               Em
                 colder than the hearts
                 D7             G
                 of the extreme right.


  INSTRUMENTAL:  Em - Am(add9)


                 Em
        ENDING:  once I was without you,

                 the loneliest place by far.
                 Am(add9)(no3rd)
                 'tis a cruel planet

                 when I can't be where you are.
