Banquet at the World's End

Capo 2nd fret
Bm    E   A  Dsus2 A Dsus2  repeat

    A                Dsus2     A                 Dsus2
The beautiful people,      all send their excuses 
A                         Dsus2 A                     Dsus2
(Real estate and sex lives,     livestock and ex-wives)
        Bm                   D
But the poor are coming, the lame are running
         A                  E          A
In their sleazy clothes and orthopedic shoes
          A                 E                A
There's a harelip spokesman shouting out the news
Bm                          E       A   Dsus2 A Dsus2
"Come to the banquet at the world's end!"

          A               Dsus2         A                  Dsus2
There's a string ensemble,      and the King's court jester
        A                     Dsus2   A                       Dsus2
Telling parables and big jokes,    to mongoloids and old folks
    Bm                    D
The blind are seeing, the dead are breathing
        A                E         A
And the mummies dance in geriatric style
                 E                A
The amputees are rolling down the aisles
Bm                          E       A   Dsus2 A Dsus2
"Come to the banquet at the world's end!"

E                           Bm
Candlelight and party hats, duck and pheasant under glass
E                                   Bm
Aluminum walkers, thin white canes, caviar and pink champagne
A
The bride and the groom waltz on
G                     A              G
Club foot lane at the banquet at the world's end
    A              G
The banquet at the world's end
    A              G            A Dsus2 A Dsus2
The banquet at the world's end
A    Dsus2 A  Dsus2 A Dsus2 A Dsus2
Ban - an - an -an

        A               Dsus2
Say the beautiful people (the poor are coming)
       A                       Dsus2
"We'll live with the lights out (the lame are running)
A                 Dsus2
Leave us alone now (the blind are seeing)
      A                       Dsus2
Cause hell feels like home now" (the dead are breathing)
Bm        Bm D     Bm                   D
Meanwhile......the poor are coming, the lame are running
         A                  E          A
In their sleazy clothes and orthopedic shoes
                            E                A
There's a harelip spokesman shouting out the news
Bm                          E       A   Dsus2
"Come to the banquet at the world's end!"
Bm                          E       A   Dsus2
"Come to the banquet at the world's end!"
Bm                          E       A   Dsus2
"Come to the banquet at the world's end!"
A   Dsus2  A  Dsus2  A  Dsus2  A
End....
