Artist : AJJ 
Song : Small Red Boy

Intro :
Am E7

Verse 1 :

Am E7 Am
I found a small red boy inside my tummy
C G C
With 3 dollars in change and a Milky Way Lite
E7 Am
In my occasional pursuit to find something more meaningful
F G
Than yet another word that rhymes with "die"
Am E7 Am
I cut him out and put him on my table
C G C
His shallow-breathing chest would fall and rise
E7 Am
His South of Heaven shirt was way too big for him
F
His horns were long and sharp
G
And then he opened up those eyes that said

Chorus 1 :
C G Am
I am, I am, I am, I am the truth

Interlude : Am E7

Verse 2 :

Am E7 Am
I showered him with love and adulation
C G C
One day he was just as tall as me
E Am
I showed him all the books that I was raised on
F G
Your Madeleine L'Engle and D'Aulaires' Mythologies
Am E7 Am
And in a montage that could warm the heart of Hitler
C G C
I raised him up so proud and motherly
E7 Am
I swore that I was glancing in a mirror
F
When in the language that I taught him
G
Oh god, he began to speak, he said

Chorus 2 :

C G Am
I am, I am, I am, I am the truth
C G Am
I am, I am, I am, I am the truth

Verse 3 :
F G
And his eyes became a beacon, an LCD projector
E7 F
Broadcasting all my memories in a clear and vivid picture
F G
His tongue became a staircase, his uvula the knocker
E7 F
Of an ornate wooden door that led me straight into my future
F G
His throat became a hallway with a thousand baby pictures
E7 F
And I became forgiveness, I transformed into the closure that I lost
F G
When I learned about the tragedy of all of us
E7 F
I lost it when I learned about the tragedy of all of us
F G
Incorrigible illness in the loved ones in and out of us
E7 F
I lost it when I learned about the tragedy of all of us
F G
I walked through the hallways to a room of only mirrors
E7 F
Reflecting me in bondage so I watched myself get freer

Bridge :
F
I let my horns grow longer
G
I observed my skin get redder
Am
My soul became a hammer
C
I started to feel better
F
My hatred to turned to pity
G
My resentment blossomed flowers
C E7
My bitter tasting candy
Am G
My misery was power
F
The truth in me grew brighter
G
My nature and my nurture

Chorus 3 :
C G Am
No more shame, no more fear, no more dread!
F G C
I am, I am, I am, I am the truth
