Friendly Ghost

Eels

    G                   F
If you're scared to die you'd better
C                 D
 not be scared to live
G                   F
I've been spending all my days
C                 D
 giving all I can give

[Bridge]
F                  G
Last night I heard someone walking
F                  G
through my bedroom door
D         
What they wanted
    D            G
I'm not exactly sure

[Chorus]
G      F                 C
           A friendly ghost
D           G
...is all I need
F             C
...a friendly ghost
D
...is all I need

[Verse]
Marking time on a broken watch
counting days till the old pawn shop
sells me back my saxophone
and everyone's gonna leave me alone

[Bridge]
Two times I thought I heard someone
knocking on the glass
I hid my head
and prayed that it would pass

[Chorus]

[Verse] 
If you're scared to die you'd better
not be scared to live
I've been carrying round a grudge
I think I'd better forgive

[Bridge]
Last night I heard footsteps walking
on the attic floor
I got up and I
opened up the door

[Chorus]
