Band - Ferdinand The Imposter Lyrics



A a/d a a/d a
(intro)
A bm e d
Ferdinand standing in the tower thinkin how to get the power

Empress knows that it would cost her
For ferdinand the imposter
Came to me to make a deal
Dressed like general butterfield.
A bm d e
Couldnt wait to thank him for the stuffed birds and rubber door

A g d
Donated to him from the poor
D a
But it's just his game
D a
And he carries no shame
A g d
Stillhe done nobody wrong
D a
He knew he didn't belong
D a
But he went along
C#m
D e e7
Looking to see if there's somebody else he'd like to be

Benny the barberluke and me
Passed out tickets cautiously
To see the burning of the soup
Down at lucy's chicken coop.
Then of course ferdinand
Started out doing charlie chan.
That last atlas honkey's fall
He says he's gonna do them all.

A voice just said he's not for real
But it's just his game
And he carries no shame.
Still he done nobody wrong
He knew he didn't belong
But he went along.
Lookin' to see if there's somebody
Else he'd like to be.

C#m bm
Oh it's hardohdon't you know
C#m bm
To be somebody that you don't even know
A d
But he's friendlyyes he's kind
B e e7
I can't help wonderin why they'd want to change his mind

Got a message in the mail
Ferdinand was thrown in jail.
I left the snow with abigail
Went on down to fix his bail.
They had him locked in a gunny sack
His hands were tied behind his back.
He claimed he was a doukhobor (*)
But they never heard of that in baltimore.
The police said he'd better go home
And he went back alone
Back to the snow.

Still he done nobody wrong
He knew he didn't belong
But he went along.
Lookin' to see if there's somebody
Else he'd like to be
Mainly free.
