Those Final Feet

Michael Timmins

[G] [D] [C] [G]
[G] [D] [C] [G]

[G] Place my body on the [D] funeral pyre,
[C] Cut it loose to float down- [G] stream.
Leave it frozen on a [D] mountain top,
[C] suspend it high to be picked [G] clean.

You said [D] never to grow [C] old,
But you for- [G] got to tell me how.
You said [D] never to grow [C] old
And then sank your [G] teeth into those final feet.

Last night I dreamt of [D] owls at my window.
[C] I knew that time was winding [G] down.
Turned to tell you [D] of my premonition,
[C] changed my mind and lay back [G] down.

You said [D] never to grow [C] old,
But you for- [G] got to tell me how.
You said [D] never to grow [C] old
And then sank your [G] teeth into those final feet.

No sense wasting the [D] time you got,
[C] you got to walk down every [G] road.
No sense pretending that you're [D] what you're not,
[C] when you got to shoulder every [G] load.

You said [D] never to grow [C] old,
But you [G] forgot to tell me how.
You said [D] never to grow [C] old
And then sank your [G] teeth into those final feet. [D] [C] [G] [D]

Cut it [C] loose, cut it loose, cut it [G] loose

You said [D] never to grow [C] old,
But you for [G] got to tell me how.
You said [D] never to grow [C] old
And then sank your [G] teeth into those final feet.
Those final feet.
