The Golden Eel - by Ween

Amin Gmaj Amin
Sitting alone in the den
Emaj Amin
Watching the Eel
Amin Gmaj Amin
Trying to find my way home
Emaj Amin
Watching the Eel
Amin Gmaj Amin
Burrows its head in the sand
Emaj Amin
Daylight has come
Amin Gmaj Amin
There shall be rest in a while
Emaj Amin
Daylight has come

CHORUS:
C G Dmin
I cannot repeal
Amin Emaj
The words of the Golden Eel (Play chorus 1x only here)

VERSE 2:

Amin Gmaj Amin
Who can explain all these thoughts
Emaj Amin
Racking my mind
Amin Gmaj Amin
An endless barrage of shit
Emaj Amin
Racking my mind
Amin Gmaj Amin
The Eel offered his help
Emaj Amin
I can't understand
Amin Gmaj Amin
Speaking his truth from the bank
Emaj Amin
Now I can see
