INTRO/Chorus 

G                         D 
Wake up, Flanagan, the bartender's comin' 

                  Am  
He says there's someone here 

             C   
Who means to do us harm

VERSE 

Em                  D  
Ten years ago on Hogsback Mountain 

      C                      D 
The flames was roaring like a lion in a fountain 

     Em                      D 
The trees were burning, too many to count 'em 

      C       
And trapped in the middle 

      D                                Em   D   Em F#m  
With fire all around him, was a man...  

Em                       D 
Flanagan and I was out camping that day 

      C                     D  
We started our fire with turpentine and hay 

     Em                    D 
The wind was howlin' so I guess we should have known 

           C                   D                  Em   D  Em  F#m 
That the flames was gonna get blown across the land 

Chorus 

G                         D 
Wake up, Flanagan, the bartender's comin' 

                  Am  
He says there's someone here 

             C   
Who means to do us harm 

G                         D                      G   D  G 
Sound the alarm, it's the man with the skeleton arms 

VERSE 

Two days later when the fire died out 
Flanagan and I went rootin' about 
For to find a little dinner of roasted critter, 
Blackened blackbird eggs and pine-cone fritters 

That was how we happened on the badly burned man 
He was yelpin' for help and so we each grabbed a hand 
Thinking we'd be heroes if we dragged him back home, 
We pulled, but pulled the flesh right offa the bone 

Chorus 

G                         D 
Wake up, Flanagan, the bartender's comin' 

                  Am  
He says there's someone here 

             C   
Who means to do us harm 

G                         D                      G   D  G 
Sound the alarm, it's the man with the skeleton arms 

BRIDGE 
(same chords as verse) 

Now of all the mad people, that guy was the maddest 
He pulled a bone across his throat 
And pointed right at us 
Ten years on the lam from that skeletal man 
He's sworn his revenge, we've heard his sinister plan:  

He'll string us up by our hands and lift us over a vat 
And dip us up to our elbows in boiling fat 
It's like an eye for an eye, but ninety-nine times worse 
He wants to do to us what we did to him, 
Except in reverse... 

Chorus 

G                         D 
Wake up, Flanagan, the bartender's comin' 

                  Am  
He says there's someone here 

             C   
Who means to do us harm 

G                         D                      G   D  G 
Sound the alarm, it's the man with the skeleton arms 


OUTRO/Chorus 

G                         D 
Wake up, Flanagan, the bartender's comin' 

                  Am  
He says there's someone here 

             C   
Who means to do us harm 

G                         D                     Am  G   C   D  Em  
Sound the alarm, it's the man with the skeleton arms
