Thick Skin

INTRO:   A  E7  E7  A  x2

     A           D
I've opened up a place
        E       A
In this simple song
        A             D         E
It's a little bit of space I'm leaving......
        A               D
Taking chances at first glances
            E           A
That you'll get me all wrong
     A              D        E   A
And cross out every word I'm singing

   D (or Bm)                     A
Or this could grow on you (my friend)
          D                             A
Might not knock you down or drag you in
    D                       A 
But it's a place I can begin
       G            Bm
To get under your antenna and your
A
Thick skin 
A  E7  E7 A
 A  E7  E7 A

     A             D
How 'bout a little wind 
         E      A
In your perfect hair?
     A              D          E                 
How 'bout a little swim in my ocean?......
     A              D    
I'm dreaming in and breathing in 
    E          A
The metaphoric air
   A                  D       E  A
Designed to get your faith in motion

   D (or Bm)                  A
Or this could grow on you (my friend)
          D                          A
Might not knock you down or drag you in
    D                    A 
But it's a place I can begin
       G            Bm
To get under your antenna and your
A
Thick skin 
A  E7  E7 A
 A  E7  E7 A


Bm  (or E or E7)               E
Working in precision (on your)  Thick skin
Bm (see above, etc below)     E
Making an incision (in your)   Thick skin
   Bm                             E
Creating some division (in your)   Thick skin
Bm                                  E
Dropping words of wisdom (on your)   Thick skin

     A           D
I've opened up a vein
            E       A
And let the ink get out
      A                 D       E
It's dripping from the hand I'm moving... ...
     A          D
The mystery in You and me
    E              A
Is what it's all about
     A                D                E  A
And true love is the scalpel I've been using


     D (or Bm)                  A
Yeah this could grow on you (my friend)
          D                          A
Might not knock you down or drag you in
    D                    A 
But it's a place I can begin
       G            Bm
To get under your antenna and your
A
Thick skin 
G            Bm
Under your antenna and your
A
Thick skin 
G            Bm
Under your antenna and your
A
Thick skin 
A  E7  E7 A
 A  E7  E7 A
