Bishop Danced - As performed by Bruce Springsteen 02/19/1973

G
 Bishop danced with a thumbscrew woman
                                 C
Did a double-quick back flip and slid across the floor
                            G
The Catholic traffic flowed freely 'cross the river
                              D             C
And fiddlestick fiddled quick out the front door
   G
Oh baby dumpling, mama's in the back tree
                   C          G
If the bow breaks, mama might fall
                    C
Little sad and only baby don't be lonely
   G                            D             Em
Oh mama knows 'rithmatic, knows how to take a fall
G                            D             C   G
Mama knows 'rithmatic, knows how to take a fall

                         C                        G
And the kids are crying 'Flapjacks, make 'em fat, early in the morning'
C                           G
Little Jack, grab your hat, hear the breakfast call
C                   G
Muskrat, bat a cat, kick him in the fireplace

There's someone in the kitchen blowing Dinah on their horn
                                       D                  C   G D
There's someone in the kitchen blowing Dinah like they're born 

     G
Well maverick daddy got a one-eyed bride 
                              C
She glides like a monkey-mule kicking on the back slide
                      G
Over hill, over hill, daddy don't you spill now
C                             G
Papa got a switch stick, he's pumping little Bill
C                             D              C   G
Papa got a switch stick, he's pumping little Bill
                       C                   G
And Billy he's crying "Tomahawk, tomahawk, daddy better duck now"
    C                                   G
The Mohawks, the Mohawks, they're still out there in the woods
C                G
Monatuk, Ocanuk, runnin' through my dreams now

With fire on their fingertips and indian screams 
                                  D                      C   G
With fire on their fingertips and feathers made of moonbeams

Well early in the morning the cannoneer cried

"I seen the sailor's warning in the western sky"
     C                         G
Well mountain man, if you can, cut me down a fir tree
C                                 D        C  G
Branches full of candlesticks for baby and me
                                C                                      
And my darling cried, she said "Honey 
                                 G
The weathervane lately it's been pointing the way to heaven"
C              G              C
Scatterbrains, scatterbrains, watch out where you fall
                            G
Champagne, champagne, a round for all the old choir boys

They're busting off the altar chasing Dinah through the hall
                                      D                 C   G

                                       D                  C   G
There's someone in the kitchen blowing Dinah like they're born
