"Cheap Watch" as written by and Irwin Bean....
Wound[A] up tighter than a cheap watch
Wind it [D] up and watch how the time [A] flies
Little white teeth wound around what sounds like [F] more cheap [A] lies
Little black [E] clouds suck us up into the sky

[D] Wound up where the Christmas lights stay [A] up all year
And it takes the barman half an hour just to get me another [E] beer
Was it [D] just for kicks or was it [A] in and out of [D] fear
One step [E] closer, two stepping posers get a [D] little kings [A] lear

[D] One foot on the gas, two [A] feet from Tennessee
[E] L ittle hand on the twelve-gauge and the [D] big hand swinging [A] free
Well, I [D] made you look but I [A]could not make you [D] see
Look [E] down at your shoes 'cause the tie that binds was un[D]tied by [A]me

[D] Rebel rouser and the e-string is my [A]last nerve
Ringing [D] out like a stabbing [A] pain
It's the [D] last call, and I'm calling on
Something that they don't [A] serve
Like a [E] double shot of that ball and [A] chain

[D] Spoonful of absence makes my [A] heart grow fonder
[E] Spoonful of absinthe makes my [D] mind to [A] wander
[D] Spoonful of sugar down [A] at the candy [D] store
I got a [E] string around your sweet tooth, baby
And I'm [D] getting up to slam the [A] door

Wound up tighter than a cheap watch
Wind it up and watch how the time flies
Little white teeth wound around what sounds like more cheap lies
Little black clouds suck us up into the skies
Little black [E]clouds suck us [D] up into the [A] skies
