Subject: CHD: T-Bone Burnett- "Criminal "

The following are the chords and lyrics for a song from one of my favorite
songwriters.  Although the music is simple, the lyrics are profound.


"The Criminal Under My Own Hat"  by T-Bone Burnett
----------------------------------------------------------------------

F#m                   E
I've seen a lot of criminals
F#m                   E
I've seen a lot of crimes
F#m                   E
Doing a lot of evil deeds
F#m              E
Doing a lot of time

F#m                                  E
We speak of these men as aliens
F#m                         E
>From some forbidden race
F#m                                  E
We speak of these men as animals
F#m                   E
We will lock in a cage

INSTRUMENTAL (same alternating chords)
F#m                                    E
But there's one man I must arrest
F#m              E
I must interrogate
F#m                                       E 
One man that I must make confess
F#m            E
Then rehabilitate

F#m                            E 
There is no other I can blame
F#m                E 
No other I can judge
F#m                           E  
No other I can cast in shame
F#m             E
Then require blood

INSTRUMENTAL  (same alternating chords)

Bridge:
      E
      I see him in the shadows down the hall
      E
      I see him in the plaster on the wall

F#m                                    E 
There is no crime he cannot commit
F#m                      E
No murder too complex
F#m                          E
His heart is filled with larceny 
F#m                    E
And violence and sex

F#m                          E
His heart is filled with envy
F#m                   E
And revenge and greed
F#m                          E
His heart is filled with nothing 
F#m                          E
His heart is filled with need


F#m                        E
He' s capable of anything
F#m                E
Of any vicious act
F#m                          E
This criminal is dangerous
F#m                                 E
The criminal under my own hat.
