Key: D
Intro.:  (D) x 4 bars 

  Bm 
If I could kill a word and watch it die 
   D 
I'd poison 'never,' shoot 'goodbye' 
  Bm                                   D 
And beat 'regret' when I felt I had the nerve 
    Bm 
Yeah, I'd pound 'fear' to a pile of sand 
      D 
Choke 'lonely' out with my bare hands 
   Bm                                  D 
And I'd hang 'hate' so that it can't be heard 
  Bm      G                   D 
If I could only kill a word  

Bm 
I'd take 'brokeness' out back 
   D 
And break 'heartbreak,' stand there and laugh 
     Bm                                      D 
Right in its face while shootin' it the bird  
   Bm 
I'd put 'upset' down in its place 
   D 
I'd squeeze the life out of 'disgrace' 
   Bm                                  D 
Lay 'over' under six cold feet of dirt  
  Bm      G                  D 
If I could only kill a word  

Bm Give me sticks, give me stones G Bend my body, break my bones D A Use staff and rod to turn me black and blue Bm 'Cause you can't unhear, you can't unsay G But if it were up to me to change D A I'd turn 'lies' and 'hate' to 'love' and 'truth' Bm G D If I could only kill a word
(verse 2) Bm I'd knock out 'temptation''s teeth D I'd sever 'evil,' let it bleed Bm D Then light up 'wicked,' stand and watch it burn Bm I'd take 'vice' and I'd take 'vile' D Tie 'em up there with 'hostile' Bm D Hang 'em high and leave 'em for the birds Bm G D If I could only kill a word
Bm So give me sticks, give me stones G Bend my body, break my bones D A Use staff and rod to turn me black and blue Bm 'Cause you can't unhear, you can't unsay G But if it were up to me to change D A I'd turn 'lies' and 'hate' to 'love' and 'truth' Bm G D If I could only kill a word Bm G D If I could only --- kill a word
