Thread Name: Lyr Req/Add: I Gotta Find a Woman with a Chainsaw
Subject: Lyr/Chords Add: WOMAN WITH A CHAINSAW (Peter Krug)
I heard tonight that Peter Krug died. He was a good guy. I came across another transcription of "Chainsaw" at Here's what it looks like:

Woman With a Chainsaw
Peter Krug

Intro: E A-D A-E D-A (2x)

       E             D          E               D
When I woke up this morning I was frozen nearly dead
       E       D               E          D
It was so damn cold I couldn't get out of bed
         E             D    E             D
And as I lay there shivering, cold as could be
E             D          E             D
Suddenly this revelation   occurred to me

|    G             D            A       E
|I've got to find a woman with a chainsaw
|G             D            A E
| To spend the winter with me
|   G             D            A       E
|If I could find a woman with a chainsaw
|G                      D                     E
|All night long I would stoke her fire, yessirree
|(Intro chords)

I put a notice in the coop, I put an ad in the Stump
I don't care if she's skinny and I don't care if she's plump
I don't care if she's pretty or she's ugly as sin
If she's just got a chainsaw she can move right in

Refrain ("I'm just looking for a...")

Those big-city women in their I. Magnin clothes
Are not very useful when the ground is froze
I need a tough country mama who can help me cut my wood
And when I find her I'm gonna treat her good

Refrain ("Yeah, I'm looking for a...")

I would treat her sweet and gentle, we would never fight
If she went out with other guys I wouldn't get uptight
No, she could just do her own thing and I would do mine
She and me and that chainsaw would get along just fine

Refrain ("'Cause I'm just looking for a...")

I got a cabin on the mountain, a Chevy pickup truck
Eleven pounds of homegrown Mendocino Thunderfuck
A hundred pounds of soybeans, a barrel of brown rice
Seven cords of firewood would make it all so nice

Refrain ("That's why I'm looking for a...")

(Intro chords; end on E7)
For free, just her and me, and some parts of a tree

Note: I. Magnin was founded in 1876 by Mary Ann Magnin. Acquired by Bullock's in 1944, the combined entity merged in 1964 into Federated Department Stores. The last I. Magnin stores were rebranded in 1994.

Chainsaws are very important tools for providing firewood in chilly Newfoundland and Labrador, so of course there's a page on this song at GEST.
