[Verse 1]
   G                       C  Em 
Wrapped in the wings of a sparrow
 F                     C CM7
Beak is as sharp as an arrow
 G                    C  Em
Sings in a whispering whistle
 F                    C  CM7
Sleeps in the ivy and thistle
 G                    C  Em
Owls out swooping and howling
 F                    C   CM7
Deep in the midnight a-prowling
 G                      C Em
Mama, the scream of the eagle
 F                             C CM7
Threading my heart through the needle
 G                              C Em
Threading the blood through the apple
 F                         C CM7
Sucking the juice from the apple
 G                      C Em
Eating the seeds of the apple
 F                      C CM7
Bearing the tree of the apple
 G                           C   Em
Trapped in the weeds like a scarecrow
 F                     C CM7
Stuck to the wind like Velcro
 G                     C    Em
Distantly hearing the bell toll
 F                         C  CM7
Warbling chime through the meadow

[Verse 2]
 G                      C Em
Mama, the scream of the eagle
  F                            C  CM7
Threading my heart through the needle
 G                              C Em 
Threading the blood through the apple
 F                            C CM7 
Eve sucked the juice from the apple
 G                  C   Em 
Nakedly running, I saw her
 F                    C    CM7
Boy chasing after to stall her
   G                       C   Em
I wish I'd have spoken to call her
 F                          C    CM7
Before she found fabric to shawl her
  G                             C Em
Breasts bound and burdened with fiber
 F                     C   CM7
Adam came trembling beside her
       CM7        
And he said, and he said
      G                    C   Em 
That she has the poison inside her
 F                             C   CM7
She talks to snakes and they guide her
 G                     C  Em
She has the poison inside her
 F                             C   CM7 
She talks to snakes and they guide her
 G                    C   Em
She has the poison inside her
 F                             C   CM7
She talks to snakes and they guide her
G                      C  Em
She has the poison inside her
 F                             C   CM7
She talks to snakes and they guide her
