C     G       Am      F       G       Am

verse 2 

C            G     Am            F     G   Am 
The cauldron was a bubbling, the flesh was lean 
        C     G      Am          F        G    Am 
And the women moved forward like piranhas in a stream 
     C            G       Am        F        G  Am 
They spread themselves before me an offering so sweet 
         C            G    Am       F       G       Am 
And they beckoned and they beckoned come on darling eat
