VERSE

G accent G D A#

CHORUS

G F# E
 

VERSE

She walked in with the sweet aroma of peppermint tea
He was chewing on an old-fashioned stick of Wrigley’s
Attracted by the sweet mint scent
He spoke up and asked her name
 

CHORUS

Peppermint the name she’d say
Yet quickly query
“What’s it really matter to you, anyway?”
 
“Why do you ask
Why do you care
Are you here to take me away?”
 

VERSE

Walking the ditch road that he’d come to know
Where he would help her pick peppermint and wild rose
But tonight he walked alone out there
Gathering what is needed for a love elixir
 

CHORUS

Add just enough proof
To get anyone to tell the truth
 
Why do you ask
Why do you care
Are you here to take me away?
 

VERSE

She sipped the concoction of peppermint tea
While he impatiently chewed on a Wrigley’s
Seems that the tea was a bit too strong
As she gasped a last breath asking what he’d done
 

CHORUS

“Peppermint’s is my poison” she’d say
I knew it would catch up with me
One of these days”
 
“Why do you ask
Why would you care
Are you here to take me away?”
