(no chords in first verse)

In a town in the woods at the top of a hill
There's a house where no one lives
So you take a big bag of your big city money there.. and buy it
Then at night when the house is dark
And you're all alone there's a noise upstairs
At the top of the stairs there's a door so you take a deep breath and try it

        F                    C                Dm              Am
And the flashlight shows you something moving just inside the door
          F                    C                D                E
There's a tattered dress and a feeling you have felt somewhere before....

[ chorus ]

Am                          F
 And there's a creepy doll,  That always follows you
G                                   Gb G     Ab A
 It's got a ruined eye,      That's al-ways.. o-pen
Am                          F
 And there's a creepy doll,  That always follows you
G                                   Gb G     Ab A
 It's got a pretty mouth,    To swallow.. you whole

Fmaj7

Am                     E
 So you scream and you close the door
        C                    D
And you tell yourself it was just a dream
F                   C                        D              E
 In the morning you head into town cause you want to go.. antiquing
Am                      E
 In the store there's a strange old man
       C                   D
With a wandering eye and a withered hand
F                      C                      D                  E
 When he hands you the old wooden box you can hear his old bones creaking

        F(maj7)            C               Dm              Am
And you know what you will find inside the moment that you see
     F                   C             D                E
That someone carved your name into the tarnished silver key

[ repeat chorus ]

    F                  C                Dm             Am
And when you come home late the doll is waiting up for you
    F              C                   Dm                Am
And when you fix a snack the doll says it would like one too
    F               G                 F                G
The doll is in your house and in your room and in your bed
    F               G                Fmaj7            G                C
The doll is in your eyes and in your arms and in your head and you are crazy

F D7 F 

Am                     E
 Now it's late and you head downstairs
          C                       D
Cause you just can't sleep so you make some tea
F                  C                     D                     E
 And the doll disapprovingly asks if you really need that much honey
Am                      E
 You decide that you've had enough
        C                    D
And you lock the doll in the wooden box
F                       C                      D               E
 You put the box in the fireplace next to your bag of big city money
       F(maj7)             C                 Dm              Am
As the smoke fills up your tiny room there's nothing you can do
    F                C           D                 E
And far too late you see the one inside the box is you

[ repeat chorus ]
