                                                 INTRODUCTION
Fellow RT enthusiasts,

So far these transcriptions have taken me near on seven months on and off when I have had time to dedicate myself.; can all be very
taxing at times !!

My intention in transcribing these songs has been to achieve something I could just play and improvise along to. My main aim was to
transcribe the recordings of Richard Thompson as a sole artist. I have not as yet attempted recordings with Fairport Convention, Linda
Thompson and other artists. I may undertake to transcribe these at some later stage.

The most obvious omissions are Henry The Human Fly and Front Parlour Ballads. I‟ll get round to them eventually.

A number of points are worthy of mention.

        I have transcribed what I play when I play along to these songs. These transcriptions suffice for me; they may not do so for
         others with a more acutely tuned ear and a better sense of musicality. That is an issue for those individuals to resolve.

        I do not use RT‟s „fancy‟ tunings !!! I am not that sort of guitar player, I just cannot do it. Nor do I use a capo. Purists among
         you will have to look elsewhere I‟m afraid. This may be the reason why some songs may be incorrect and don‟t quite sound
         correct. You decide. Any views, please let me know.

        These transcriptions are from the original CD recordings. They are not from live concert recordings where RT may use
         different keys or change the song in some way.

        Without formal musical notation, at times it has been difficult to represent what is happening in music in a textual format. I
         have done my best. I like to think that a little intuition with what is here should work.

        I have not transcribed TAB for twiddly bits and solos in this file. It would simply take too long. It has taken me months to get
         this far !!

        I have put on what I believe to be key signatures for those who want to solo and improvise over the songs.

        Where chord sequences repeat from verse to verse or chorus to chorus, I have not written them in. Use your intuition. In all
         cases, chords are stated but I do not necessarily state how many times; with a good knowledge of the song it should be
         intuitive.

        I cannot in any way guarantee that the chords I have tried to transcribe in these songs are correct. They at least allow me to
         play along to RT‟s songs with some semblance of faithfulness !!

        Being accustomed to these songs and their melody, moving between chords I find fairly intuitive. However, linking chords with
         lyrics for the purposes of this document I have found difficult in some places. So some chords many not be exactly over the
         correct lyric !!

        NB – DO NOT change font or font size in this file as the positioning between chords and lyrics will not match !!

As I transcribe more albums, more especially those with Linda, I shall post updated versions.

I have added a section at the back for cross-referencing live & compilation tracks to original recordings.
I have also added an A-Z of songs to quickly locate the original recording a required song can be found on.

I know some of these chords may be incorrect. I urge anyone to email me with changes they may like to suggest or with what they
might see as outright mistakes or omissions on my part. In the absence of a chord book (or at least until all songs are transcribed and
released by RT from his website that is), transcriptions such as these are the only way we all can all play along. Everyone‟s input is
valued and important. Maybe others can build on what I have started here.

Absolutely any views you might have are welcome at the email address below.

Use, play along and enjoy !

Regards,

Simon Robinson (simonitov@yahoo.com)

Welcome back to the human race

How long can the flame

Or hear like spoken

            Gm       Dm
Oh when the spell is broken


All your magic and your ways and schemes
All your lies come and tear at your dreams
When the spell is broken
(Can't cry if you don't know how)
When the spell is broken
Now you're handing her that same old line
It's just straws in the wind this time
When love has died,
There's none starry-eyed
No kiss, no tears,
No farewell souvenirs
Not even a token, when the spell is broken

Don't swear your heart
From the very start
Love letters you wrote

I make my moves well, I let her tell me when
I walk a fine line, she twists the knife again
Just when the scar heals, just when the grip unbends
Just when her mind reels, she twists the knife again


She can give it out, she can't take it
She smells something bad, she has to rake it
I bring home my packet, my white-collar money
I'm in a fist fight, she thinks she's Gene Tunney


In the middle of a kiss, she twists the knife again
When I get up off my knees, she twists the knife again
When I think I'm off the hook she gets me
She twists the knife again, she twists the knife again

Always keep your tools well out of sight
It never pays to work the same town twice
It never hurts to be a little nice

Learn the way to melt into a crowd
Never catch an eye or dress too loud
You've got to be invisible my friend
To find the joy on which we must depend


That's the way we make love
That's the way we make love
That's the way we make love
Love love love love
That's the way we make love
That's the way we make love

Tropical night, malaria moon

Dying stars of the silver screen

Oh she danced that famous gypsy dance

With a hole in her tambourine


I was young enough and dumb enough
I swallowed down my Mickey Finn
She'd hijacked a few hearts, all right
I went into a tail spin


Bb               F           Gm7
Don't sing me, don't sing me

Don't sing me no more gypsy love songs
      Gm           Dm
Don't stir it up again


I put my arm around her waist
Says she "Young man, you're getting warm"
The room was going somewhere without me
And she laughed as she read my palm


Oh, don't sing me, don't sing me
Don't sing me no more gypsy love songs
Don't sing me, don't sing me
Don't sing me no more gypsy love songs
Don't stir it up again

But they don't know how to read


She was a third generation Transylvanian
I was the seventh son of a seventh son
I begged the band "Don't play that tune.
Please don't beguine the begun"


When I awoke, she'd cut and run
She stole my blueprints and my change
Just a horseshoe and a note on the bed
And all it read was "Strange"

In the bathroom mirror they try the Joan of Arc look again
Two parts Ingrid Bergman to one part Shirley MacLaine
And the wounds of time kill you but the surgeon's knife only stings
Jerusalem on the jukebox, little angels beat you wings


In video suburbia the blue light flickers and flames
Ecstasy and holy blackmail are the favourite games
And God has the sharpest suits and the cleanest chin
Jerusalem on the jukebox, little angels beat you wings

Ah the bride checks her hair and makeup, and here comes the groom
What one-eyed monster comes slouching into your front room
Rudolph Valentino or the curse of all two-legged things

Little angels beat your wings

Like a drowning man I clung to my defences

And ten years is a time but your looks, love, it's a crime

Oh I still dream,    oh Lord knows I still dream


On the killing floor I stand with a stun gun in my hand
Like a cowboy shooting bad men on the range
And nothing satisfies and the soul inside me dies
As I duck each punch and never risk the change
And now you look at me with that same old used-to-be
Oh but time winds down and I turned my back long ago


But I still dream, oh darling I still dream

That gorilla you're dancing with

May not have too long to live

He's putting his hands in the wrong places

Time to rearrange his face

He's gonna dance with me instead

And I'm gonna tap dance on his head

Don't tempt me, don't tempt me, don't tempt me

I'm half way out of my seat


He's got the looks, he's got the lolly
Driving me clean off my trolley
Doing the jitterbug, doing the jive
Doing the shimmy, snakes alive
That's not a dance, that's S-E-X
Ban that couple, certificate X


Don't tempt me, don't tempt me, don't tempt me

Get your mittens off my gal
Or you'll end up as mincemeat, pal
I've got friends, mean sons
They've got knives, chains, guns
Gas grenades, knuckle-dusters
Lazy Susans, blockbusters


Don't tempt me, don't tempt me, don't tempt me

While you polish the floor with another man

Don't tempt me, don't tempt me, don't tempt me

I started to crawl, and they swaddled me up

I got up and run, they said "Easy, son,
          E
Play up, play the game"


They told me to think and forget what I'd heard
They told me to lie and they questioned my word
They told me to fail, better sink than sail,
Just play the game

Oh what kind of mother would hamstring her sons?
Throw sand in their eyes and put ice on their tongues
Ah better to leave than stay here and grieve
And play the game

Don't waken the dead as you sleepwalk around
If you have a dream, brother, hush, not a sound
Just stand there and rust, die if you must
But play the game


Oh, if we can't have it, why should a wretch like you?
Oh, it was drilled in our heads, now we drill it into your head too.


They said "You can't win. You can't win.
You sweat blood. You give in.
You can't win. You can't win.
Turn the cheek. Take it on the chin.
Don't you dare do this. Don't you dare do that"

Oh, the nerve of some people, the nerve of some people,
The nerve of some people
I don't know who you think you are

F#m
Pharaoh he sits in his tower of steel

The dogs of money all at his heel

Magicians cry "Oh truth! Oh real!"

We're all working for the Pharaoh
F#m                               E
A thousand eyes, a thousand ears
F#m                              E
He feeds us all, he feeds our fears
F#m                                   E
Don't stir in your sleep tonight, my dears

We're all working for the Pharaoh


Hidden from the eye of chance
The men of shadow dance a dance
We're all struck into a trance
We're all working for the Pharaoh

The idols rise into the sky
Pyramids soar, Sphinxes lie
Head of dog, Osiris eye
We're all working for the Pharaoh


And it's Egypt land, Egypt land
We're all living in Egypt land
Tell me, brother, don't you understand
We're all working for the Pharaoh

I dig a ditch, I shape a stone
Another battlement for his throne
Another day on earth is flown
We're all working for the Pharaoh

Call it England, you call it Spain
Egypt rules with a whip and chain
Moses free my people again
We're all working for the Pharaoh


And it's Egypt land, Egypt land
We're all living in Egypt land
Tell me, brother, don't you understand
We're all working for the Pharaoh


Pharaoh he sits in his tower of steel
Around his feet the princes kneel
Far beneath we shoulder the wheel
We're all working for the Pharaoh

                                          01 - A Bone Through Her Nose
(Daring Adventures (1986), More Guitar (2003))

KEY – Bm (G) Am in chorus
NOTES – The “D E E+9 E A Bm” bit throughout this song I play using the „C shape‟ (only way I can describe it) at the 2, 3 and 1 frets,
using the D-G-B strings – suffices for me.
I cannot really decide whether the Bm of the chorus is B or Bm – frankly to my ear, both sound ok !!


<intro>
E E+9 E A Bm


Bm                                                                               D E E+9 E A Bm
Oh the drones on the corner don't look her in the eye when she comes out to play
Bm                                                                D E E+9 E A Bm
And three times now at the Club Chi-Chi they've turned her away
Bm                                                                D E E+9 E A Bm
Last week she was the belle of the ball but another week passes
Bm                                                       D E E+9 E A
It's time to cast off crutches, scars and pebble glasses


G
She's got everything a girl might need
         E
She's a tribal animal, yes indeed
         Am                            C
But she hasn't got a bone through her nose, through her nose
Bm                              E
Hasn't got a bone through her nose
     Am                             C
She hasn't got a bone through her nose, through her nose
     Bm                             E
She hasn't got a bone through her nose
Am                              C
Hasn't got a bone through her nose, through her nose
Bm                                  E     F#
She hasn't got a bone through her nose


Oh she gets her suits from a personal friend, Coco the clown
She got dustman's jacket, inside out, it's a party gown
If it's bouffons, she's got bouffons, if it's tat she got tat
She got hoochie coochie Gucci and a pom-pom hat

She's got everything a girl might need
She's a tribal animal, yes indeed
But she hasn't got a bone through her nose, through her nose
She hasn't got a bone through her nose
She hasn't got a bone through her nose, through her nose
She hasn't got a bone through her nose
She hasn't got a bone through her nose, through her nose
She hasn't got a bone through her nose
No!


<solo>
D          F#


Well, her ma writes cook books, she wrote one once, and it sold one or two
Her pa's in the city, he's so witty, he calls it the zoo
Her boyfriend plays in Scritti Politti, Aunt Sally's brown bread
In a few more years she can marry some fool and knock it on the head

She's got everything a girl might need
She's a tribal animal, yes indeed
14/01/2011                                                        29                                             simonitov@yahoo.com
But she hasn't got a bone through her nose, through her nose
She hasn't got a bone through her nose
She hasn't got a bone through her nose, through her nose
She hasn't got a bone through her nose
She hasn't got a bone through her nose, through her nose
She hasn't got a bone through her nose
She hasn't got a, Oh she hasn't got a, Oh

KEY – G
NOTES – Solo#2 where gets a bit „trad. Scottish‟ is hard to transcribe in this format – I have just written chords that I hear.


G
Oh Valerie! You give me heart attack

Oh Valerie! You put me on the rack

Oh you say that I'm history, you say I'm no good

Then you want to be two babes in the wood

Em           D      C              Em
That's what I call playing to the gallery
           Em D        C                   G
Well I'm a-wait, wait, waiting for Valerie


Hey Valerie! She got a scar down here
Valerie! She got gold in her ear
A figure like this, lips like that
Red fingernails, teeth like a cat
She never gets home till five or four or three
Well I'm a-wait, wait, waiting for Valerie


          Em
Well I'm soft in the head, I give her hard cash
      G
She spends all my money on junk and trash
Em
Nylon fur, plastic shoes
    A
And fifty-seven things she's never going to use

Never, never, never going to use
G
Oh Valerie! Oh Valerie! Oh Valerie!


<solo #1>
G         Em D C       G


Well Valerie! You're going to choke or drown
Valerie! Why don't you put that down?
If you don't get over this eating jag
They're going to take you home in a body bag
I can't stand to see one more calorie
Well I'm a-wait, wait, waiting for Valerie

Now every time I turn my back
She's 'round the corner, looking for a crack
It's going to be the ruin of me
Well I'm running on nervous energy
14/01/2011                                                           30                                              simonitov@yahoo.com
Running on nervous energy

Oh Valerie! She want to move out of town
Valerie! She want the money down
She want leopard-skin this, tiger-skin that
Matching luggage, lipstick, hat
I can't afford her on my salary
Still I'm a-wait, wait, waiting for Valerie
I'm a-wait, wait, waiting for Valerie
Hmm I'm a-wait, wait, waiting for Valerie

Even now you'd never say it face to face
         G                 A
That you really don't care

And if you never liked pulling teeth
            D                        G
Then why, why did you tie me in the dentist's chair


Ah you left your mark on this old place, that you did
I could stew in here like a pressure cooker and screw down the lid
Or maybe I should just take a match
And burn the whole thing to the ground

    Em                         G               C
And somebody's kicking the dust and the ashes away
D                          G
Why don't they just let it die
     C               Am
And fade and grow cold again
D                        G
Better our footsteps divide
         C                Am
And our memory grow old again


   Em D      Am
Oh long dead love
Em D      Am C
Long dead love
                          D                            C
How much dirt must you shovel on what's already dead
                                 D                   C
Don't send flowers to remember, send thorns instead
                               D
And who's that polishing the tombstone over our heads
Em
Ohh


Somebody's dancing on our sad misfortune
Oh there on the grave of our love
And somebody's sweeping the splinters of my broken heart away
Why don't they just let it die
And fade and grow cold again
Better our footsteps divide
And our memory grow old again


Oh long dead love
Long dead love
It's been so long it's even hard to find the right place
Was it you who paid for Burke and Hare to come in on the case
You know grave-robbing is a sin and this is a crying disgrace

Love makes people so blind

That's why I can't make up my mind
       Bm                  F#m
If you stop me dead in my tracks
            G              A
Or you just paper over the cracks


You're the one I've wanted so long
But then again I might be wrong
Now you look just right in the pale moonlight
But let me turn the headlights on


            D
'Cause I'm nearly in love
    G              F#m
I'm nearly in love

I'm almost aware of walking on air
         Bm             A
Yes, I'm nearly in love

I'm nearly in love
I'm nearly in love
I wish I was really, I'd love to dearly
But I'm nearly in love


I don't want to cause you doubt
But I'm really checking you out
You're the closest to my heart bar none
Except for my wallet and my gun

I never felt like this before
That's why I want to make quite sure
That it's not just a dose of the 'flu
That gives me the chills for you

I'm nearly in love
I'm nearly in love
I'm almost aware of walking on air
Yes I'm nearly in love

I'm nearly in love
I'm nearly in love
I wish I was really, I'd love to dearly
But I'm nearly in love


A
I reserve the right to love you
      E            A       E
After all I'm the first in line

G                                      (G#)
But something's spoiling my sentiments
A
You open your mouth and it makes no sense
E                       A
All you ever give me is baby talk


You're a fine grown woman, and that's a fact
But who could tell from the way you act
When I pull up the car and we climb in the back
All you ever give me is baby talk


D
I love sweet nothings, sitting in the dark
A
And I like to bill and coo
B
But it breaks my heart the minute you start
E
On goo goo goo and a-coochee coo


You drive me crazy, where will it end
I feel embarrassed in front of my friends
It's a wonderful thing that you learned how to walk
All you ever give me is baby talk

I'm sending you back to nursery school
When you start talking you sound like a fool
You can't even eat with a knife and a fork
     E                       A
And all you ever give me is baby talk

All torn like a rag doll, barefoot in the rain
            B                        E         B
And she sang like a child, toora-day toora-daddy
                          F#       B
Oh how will I ever be simple again


She sat by the banks of the dirty grey river
And tried for a fish with a worm on a pin
There was nothing but fever and ghosts in the water
Oh how will I ever be simple again


E                          B
War was my love and my friend and companion
    E                       B          F#
And what did I care for the pretty and plain
        B                            E          B
But her smile was so clear and my heart was so troubled

B E B F# B


In her poor burned-out house I sat at her table
The smell of her hair was like cornfields in May
And I wanted to weep and my eyes ached from trying
Oh how will I ever be simple again

So graceful she moved through the dust and the ruin
And happy she was in her dances and games
Oh teach me to see with your innocent eyes, love
                      F#      B
Oh how will I ever be simple again
                      F#      B
Oh how will I ever be simple again

Well we were heroes then, and the girls were all pretty
                     F             Bb7                     A
And a uniform was a lucky charm, bought you the key to the city
F
We used to dance the whole night through
         Bb7              A7
While Al Bowlly sang "The Very Thought Of You"
     Dm                    A7           Dm
Now Bowlly's in heaven and I'm in limbo now

Well I gave my youth to king and country
                        F               Bb7           A
But what's my country done for me but sentenced me to misery
F
I traded my helmet and my parachute
Bb7                          A7
For a pair of crutches and a demob suit
Dm                         A7           Dm
Al Bowlly's in heaven and I'm in limbo now


F     Gm7 Am7          Gm7
Hard times, hard hard times
F            Gm7          Am7           Gm7
Hostels and missions and dosser's soup lines
F              Gm7       Am7         Gm7
Can't close me eyes on a bench or a bed
         Bb7                         A7
For the sound of some battle raging in my head


Old friends, you lose so many
You get run around, all over town
The wear and the tear, oh it just drives you down
St Mungo's with its dirty old sheets
Beats standing all day down on Scarborough Street
Al Bowlly's in heaven and I'm in limbo now

Sleep in the rain, you sleep in the snow
            Bb7                          A7
When the beds are all taken you've got nowhere to go

Well I can see me now, I'm back there on the dance floor
Oh with a blonde on me arm, red-head to spare
Spit on my shoes and shine in me hair
And there's Al Bowlly, he's up on a stand
Oh that was a voice and that was a band
Al Bowlly's in heaven and I'm in limbo now

Well I bought me a horse with a broken leg
                                 A
They said that she never could win
E
Only fit for a bullet, they said
            A       B        E
She‟ll be coming out of a tin


So I took her home, I fed her on hay
I tied her up with a sling
Well, she just kept howling all of the night
And that‟s the reason I sing


E
Well, Both Ends Burning, Both Ends Burning
                         A
That‟s how she got her name
E
Both Ends Burning, Both Ends Burning
B            D      A
I never will sleep again
E
Ah, Both Ends Burning, Both Ends Burning
E                        A
That‟s how she got her name
E
Both Ends Burning, Both Ends Burning
B            D      A
I never will sleep again


I took her to the race-track one fine day
They couldn‟t believe their eyes
They said, if that nag even stays on her feet
We‟re going to give you first prize


Ah, Both Ends Burning, Both Ends Burning
That‟s how she got her name
Both Ends Burning, Both Ends Burning
I never will sleep again
O Both Ends Burning, Both Ends Burning
That‟s how she got her name

She ran so fast that it took my breath
You never did see such a win
But when she crossed that finishing line
I was just too tired to grin

I never will sleep again
O Both Ends Burning, Both Ends Burning

You feed me money, you treat me like a creep

You send me a letter that reads like double-Dutch

You‟re a little such-and-such


You got my number, you got my rank
You drained my head, you drained my petrol tank
And when I die of shame
I won‟t even know who to thank


Now, now, is this the way it‟s supposed to be

G                                                      CF
I should have turned her down, blame my curious streak
G                                                CF
I never dreamt that we‟d be driving into trouble
G                                            CF
Until we hit a rock that bent my nose double

I‟d say we both were on run, run, run
D                                Am
She looked too fresh for twenty-one, one, one
D                              Em
She slipped her little hand in mine, mine, mine
          Am       B C                  G      Em
Said I‟ll take you where the wind don‟t whine, whine

G CF (x4)


Ah the wheels were moaning, we were heading ninety-five
The rain was beating down, my engine was alive
The roads were empty as the day turned into night
With every street lamp her face shone white


I asked her name and she just smiled, smiled, smiled
We must have clocked a thousand miles, miles, miles
She said we‟ll be there in a while, while, while
I‟ll take you where the wind don‟t whine, whine
I‟ll take you where the wind don‟t whine

G CF (x4)


I was feeling weary when the car died on me
I pulled her over and the strength just drained from me
The price of running‟s getting dearer and dearer
And nothing ever seems to get nearer and nearer


I suppose I didn‟t make the grade, grade, grade
When I looked around she‟d slipped away, „way, „way
Out in the night you‟ll see her shine, shine, shine
Am       B C                   G       Em
Waiting where the wind don‟t whine, whine
Am       B C                   G       Em
Waiting where the wind don‟t whine, whine
Am       B C                   G

Don‟t throw your secrets where men will steal them
You got to hide them, you got to seal them
No matter what you try, you‟ll never take my love from me
And if you might think that you can move me
From the beating of my heart


O you‟re listening to the wrong heartbeat
Ah, listening to the wrong heartbeat
You‟re listening to the wrong heartbeat
My love is strong

You‟re listening to the wrong heartbeat
You‟re listening to the wrong heartbeat

You‟re, you‟re, you‟re listening to the wrong heartbeat
O listening to the wrong heartbeat
O you‟re listening to the wrong heartbeat
My love is strong

It was a gang of no great size

And surrender was the banner that she carried

And hungry was the shiver in her eyes

She met a boy, his health was failing

KEY –
NOTES – The intro I play using power chords


<intro>
C-Dm Dm C-B-A-F

Dm
For the sake of Mary I kicked the reds
F
Junked the juice, I drink coffee instead
Dm
Straightened my teeth, bent my back
F
Cut my friends dead from the old rat-pack
Dm
For Mary


She bought me this silk suit, watch and chain
She put the rhythm in my stride again
She showed me the way to make her feel good
If I could do more then I surely would
For Mary. Ah, for Mary.

        G
For the sake of Mary I played my hand
     Dm
She still don't trust me to be her man
   G
I say the right thing but my timing's bad
     A                                                    G
She thinks I'm like the rest, but I'm the best she's ever had

                       <repeat intro>
For the sake of Mary
For the sake of Mary


Oh I was cook first class on the Belfast B
But when she sailed she sailed without me
In Needle Pete's I got my last tattoo
In bleeding letters of red and blue
For Mary
Ah, for Mary

For the sake of Mary I changed my drift
I got a good job on the graveyard shift
She set her heart on a pretty little place
I want to see the tears of joy on her face, oh-oh
For the sake of Mary


Bb C Dm (x2)
(repeat intro)


For the sake of Mary I keep the flame
I don't want to be a villain again
She had her bad times and it shook her about
I don't want to take the easy way out, no, no

                       (repeat intro till fade)
For the sake of Mary
For the sake of Mary
For the sake of Mary

A                  D
In my nightmare everything's wrong
                          C#m
I'm waiting for love, but you come along
A                           D
You smile, you wave, you kiss me, Ciao
                              C#m            D C#m D C#m D C#m C#m D
But you seem too happy to see me somehow
           Em                 B
Then the sky falls in on my head
     Em                               B
Your nails grow long, your eyes turn red
     C#m
You say "Forever, dear, and a day"
     D
You swear that you're never going to go away
         E
And my feet won't move to run the other way


      A           D    F#m     D
And I can't wake up to save my life
      A         D     F#m     D
Oh I can't wake up to save my life


In my nightmare you forgive me
The cruellest gift you could ever give me
You say that you understand me now
But your eyes say "Brother, I'll get you somehow"
And then the lightning streaks across the room
You smell like something fresh from the tomb
You squeeze too hard, you insist on kissing
When it seems like half your face is missing
And you hair's turned into reptiles hissing


And I can't wake up to save my life
Oh I can't wake up to save my life

Things I done make my dreams go bad

'Cause I can't wake up to save my life
Oh I can't wake up to save my life
No I can't wake up
No I can't wake up
Oh I can't

(Mirror Blue (1994), Live At Crawley 1993 (1995), Two Letter Words: Live 1994 (1996))

KEY – Dm
NOTES – The chords over the MGB-GT bit (C C B B A B A G F D, etc) I sound only the D & G strings for all but the F & D chords
where I sound the D & A strings only – almost power chord fashion where the G & D chords are open at the 0 fret. In this way I can
hammer on and pull off fairly fast.


Dm
Oh I've got a little car and she might go far

She's the mistress of my heart now

She's a '65 with an overdrive

And I fixed her in every part now
C
Two in the front and two in the back
Dm
110 on the old Hog's Back
   CCB B A B A             GF D
My M G B – G T, she's a runner now
ABCCB B A
   MGB–GT
A B CCB B A B A                GF D   Dm
Oh my M G B – G T, she's a runner now


Oh I welded the sills and the old floor pan
Cut the rust with the torch and the hacksaw
Took the Rostyles off, put the spoked wheels on
Got a brand new Salisbury axle
When I come to town the girls all smile
They say "Here's the man with the retro style"
My MGB-GT, she's a runner now
MGB-GT
Oh my MGB-GT, she's a runner now


<bridge>
Em C (x2)
Em D C# C B


Lockheed discs and twin SUs
Original chrome on the grille now
She looks like a dream in her racing green
Competition's standing still now
I sprayed up her body, I strengthened the frame
I stripped her right down and I built her up again


Now an Alpine's fine if you've got the time
And a Healey'll set you back some
And a TR4 costs a little bit more
But it don't have the same attraction
Hard top handy, in case of the weather
I don't care if it rains forever
In my MGB-GT, she's a runner now
MGB-GT
In my MGB-GT, she's a runner now

(Mirror Blue (1994), Two Letter Words: Live 1994 (1996))

KEY – Am till chorus where it seems to modulate between the keys of the overlying chords - Dm Bm Gm E


G                    Am         G    Am          G
You're going to give yourself away, one of these nights
       Am              G           Am       G
Your gaze of compassion, just a little too right
       Am           G             Am      G
Your hug of encouragement's a little too tight
                   Dm Am
And then he'll know.
                          Bm F#
It's the little things betray

          Am            G         Am       G
Going to give yourself away, to some Casanova
          Am       G            Am         G
On the spills and stains of the backstage sofa
       Am        G             Am, G
He'll catch you yawning with one leg over
                Dm Am
And there's the sin.
                     Bb      Gm
Must be the enemy within


                Dm
And that's the way that it shows
            Bm
That's the way that it shows
            Gm
That's the way that it shows
     E
The way that it shows
            Dm
That's the way that it shows
            Bm
That's the way that it shows
  Gm
A slip of the tongue, a squeeze of the hand
      E                 A G Am
The way that it shows


There's glycerine in the tear, rouge in the blush
You're artful stammer a little too rushed
All passion to the eye, all cold to the touch
And then he'll guess. Your mind has drifted in the kiss


There's a chink in your armour, a crack in your defences
Your iron will gives way to your senses
Your whispered sweet nothings all sound like expenses
And that's enough. He won't believe your words of love


And that's the way that it shows
That's the way that it shows
Yes that's the way that it shows
The way that it shows
That's the way that it shows
That's the, that's the way that it shows
A slip of the tongue, a squeeze of the hand
That's the way that it shows

If tears unshed could heal your heart
If words unsaid could sway
Then watch you melt into the night

And there is no rest for the ones God blessed
And he blessed you best of all

KEY - D
NOTES – Throughout all the verse, the A chord is played by fretting a G# and sliding up to an A.

Oh Shane and Dixie, they were two-bit crooks

They wanted to be famous like you read in books
                                                E
Shane had the brain and Dixie had the looks for glory
A
As a bank robber Shane really was no use

He'd end up likely at the end of the noose
                                                    E
Which was fine by Shane if the papers could use the story


D               A              E
Fame and love, fame and love, fame and love will never die
D               A              E
Fame and love, fame and love, fame and love will never die
      A E        A
Never die, never die


Well Shane says to Dixie "We're getting nowhere
I've a fine idea if you love me, swear
We'll be household names if we only dare, forever.
Here's two bullets in my old carbine
One is yours and the other is mine
They'll find us there at the scene of the crime together"


Fame and love, fame and love, fame and love will never die
Fame and love, fame and love, la la la la la will never die
Never die


F#m                     A            F#m      A
Well she screams, she swears, she tears her hair
        F#m          B          D         E
Saying "Shane, this time you've lost your mind"


Shane took aim with the sixteen bore
Dixie lay dying down there on the floor
Shane was shaken but his purpose was more inspired
Shane says "Lord, what have I done
But this victory is only halfway won"
He put the barrel underneath his tongue and fired


Well fame and love, fame and love, fame and love will never die
Fame and love, fame and love, fame and love will never die
Never die


<solo>
F#m A (x2)
F#m B D E


They found the bodies when the neighbours complained
Shane was all over the walls like paint
Dixie looked bad but her heart beat faint but surely
Well they saved her life, they were just in time
She turned her back on a life of crime
And she married the man who came to type out her story


The News of the Screws most generously gave
The money helped to pay for Shane's new grave
It looked so fine till the vandals sprayed it over
And time took its toll and the weeds grew high
It hid Shane's grave from the curious eye
Or maybe that's why we forget those lines he told us

14/01/2011                                                        61   simonitov@yahoo.com

Fame and love, fame and love, fame and love will never die

She said "Young man, oh can't you see I'm not the factory kind
If you don't take me out of here I'll surely lose my mind"


Oh she was a rare thing, fine as a bee's wing
So fine that I might crush her where she lay
She was a lost child, she was running wild
She said "As long as there's no price on love, I'll stay.
And you wouldn't want me any other way"

We busked around the market towns and picked fruit down in Kent
And we could tinker lamps and pots and knives wherever we went
And I said that we might settle down, get a few acres dug
Fire burning in the hearth and babies on the rug
She said "Oh man, you foolish man, it surely sounds like hell.
You might be lord of half the world, you'll not own me as well"


Oh she was a rare thing, fine as a bee's wing
So fine a breath of wind might blow her away
She was a lost child, oh she was running wild
She said "As long as there's no price on love, I'll stay.
And you wouldn't want me any other way"


We was camping down the Gower one time, the work was pretty good
She thought we shouldn't wait for the frost and I thought maybe we should
We was drinking more in those days and tempers reached a pitch
And like a fool I let her run with the rambling itch


<bridge #3>
C Bb Gm C Dm Bb


Oh the last I heard she's sleeping rough back on the Derby beat
White Horse in her hip pocket and a wolfhound at her feet
And they say she even married once, a man named Romany Brown
But even a gypsy caravan was too much settling down
And they say her flower is faded now, hard weather and hard booze
But maybe that's just the price you pay for the chains you refuse


Oh she was a rare thing, fine as a bee's wing
And I miss her more than ever words could say
If I could just taste all of her wildness now
If I could hold her in my arms today
Well I wouldn't want her any other way

Sugar, grease, fats and starches
Fine to dine at the golden arches


Shove it in their faces, give 'em what they want

Baby throwing up in booth number nine
Wash it down and hose it down, it happens all the time
Cigarettes in the coffee, contact lens in the tea
I'd rather feed pigs than humanity.

Oh it's cold in the rain and it's dark and it's sad
And I'll miss her tonight on my lonely back stair
I'm sorry for taking so much of your space
I'll move down the street to some friendlier place
'Cause I guess she's not coming, and you're sick of my face
I'll be taking my business elsewhere
I'll be taking my business elsewhere

Well there's a house in an alley

In the squats and low-rise
      C
Of a town with no future
           Dm              Bb
But that's where my future lies


F
It's a secret, but no secret

It's a rule, but no rule
              C
Where you find the darkest avenue
               Dm                Bb
There you'll find the brightest jewel



Now my name it is Mulvaney
And I'm known quite famously
People speak my name in whispers
What higher praise can there be


But I'd trade my fine mohair
For tied-dyes and faded jeans
If she wanted me some other way
She's my Cooksferry Queen


F
She gave me one pill to get bigger

She gave me one pill to get small

I saw snakes dancing all around her feet

And dead men coming through the wall
             Dm             F
Well I'm the prince of this parish
           Dm                      F
I've been ruthless and I've been mean
         Dm                      F

All her looks beyond compare
            C
She's got dresses that seem to float in the wind
     Dm                     Bb
Pre-Raphaelite curls in her hair


F
She could get the lame to walking

She could get the blind to see

She could make wine out of Thames river water
          Dm                     Bb
She could make a believer out of me

Yes I'd trade it all tomorrow

All the wicked things I've been

Strange but true, strange but true


Some say you can learn a lot from books
Thrill right to second-hand living
Life is just as deadly as it looks
But fiction is more forgiving

You took chances well within your means
Salon hair and creases in your jeans
All those lonely winters long
Did you really think it through
Did you really ache for me like I really ached for you

Sibella, we don't make sense together
But my heart's with you
Sibella, I found myself
Strange but true, strange but true

Two-faced love, will keep me paralysed

Why can't I get you off my mind

Why can't I get you off my mind


Oh, I don't like your thin skin
And I don't like the places you've been
I don't like the mood that you're in
Why can't I get you off my mind

If I read the signals right
I might be your slave tonight
Pardon my naive caress
Tender fits with tenderness
Uncouth to tell the truth
Two-faced love, two-faced love
Feels so wrong it must be right
Two-faced love, two-faced love
Why can't I get you off my mind

Oh you don't make my blood run cold
And you don't fit my jelly mould
Don't come up for air when you're digging for gold
Why can't I get you off my mind
Why can't I get you off my mind
It feels so wrong it must be right
Feels so wrong it must be right

I've got a nerve just showing my face don't you think
Scruffy little likes ought to know their place don't you think
Old boy, sorry to intrude
Damn shame pretty bloody rude
I should be horsewhipped and sued
Then I'll go quietly my tail between my knees

I'll crawl back under my stone
I'll crawl back under my stone
I'll crawl back under my stone
But you won't have to stand next to me
You won't have to introduce me
You won't have to think about, talk about, care about, me

Got the moon there for company each step of the way
And the rhythm in my shoes keep the blues all away
When you ride Shanks's Pony you don't have to pay

But I hadn't quite planned on staying so long
And while you accused me
The hours confused me and my friends had all gone


So I'm walking the long miles home
And I don't mind losing you
Ah there's nobody out but the cop on the beat
He's snoring so loud I don't hear my feet
I just laugh to myself and move off down the street
Walking the long miles home
I'm walking the long miles home
Oh walking the long miles home

Oh Jean-Paul he came over from Toulouse
They told him that London was the golden goose
He never got his hands on enough to eat
He never did get his arse up off the street
Wanted to be a rap DJ
They took his pulse then they turned him away
Under the radar of your fellow man
With all that charisma it ain't worth a damn
Saying "Lend me your shoes till Monday
Oh brother can you lend me a comb
I can wash dishes all night long
I just need my fare back home"
That's the sights and sounds of London Town
The sights and sounds of London Town
The sights and sounds of London Town

Well Jackie she tried just about everything

She tried to dance, she tried to sing
Too many doors slammed in your face
It leaves a nasty aftertaste
You scramble around for a little bit of cash
Ease the pain with Mister Flash
Saint Annes Court is the rendezvous
For those who share your point of view
Saying "This is the last time you will see me
Never again no way
One more time I'll never ask you again
I've just got to get through today"
That's the sights and sounds of London Town
The sights and sounds of London Town
The sights and sounds of London Town

Oh Mickey he sleeps every two or three days
Runs through Soho like a rat through a maze
A little blackmail here a sting on the side
Enough to get started on the next enterprise
Dresses expensive but that's just a crutch
Like his word or his handshake it doesn't mean much
Depends on his kickback from the middle man
And whatever he can beat out of Sally Ann
Saying "Lucky I'm the one you ran into
Oh lucky I've taken a shine
Lucky I'm needing a partner
50/50 right down the line"
Oh that's the sights and sounds of London Town
The sights and sounds of London Town
The sight and sounds of London Town

KEY – Em
NOTES – Quite a difficult song as makes use of RT‟s more dexterous guitar skills. There are unusual chords all throughout. What a
clever man !!
I believe verses in this song to be different inversions of the chords Esus4 & Am6. I have been able to identify two obvious sets of
frettings. RT uses others.

I stole your walk
The one with purpose
That says there is no mountain I can't climb
It fools people all of the time
Hope you like the new me


I stole your jokes
Just the good ones
How the gang all laughed with glee
I also stole
The way that you tell them
Hope you like the new me
Hope you like the new me


To steal is to flatter
What a compliment to pay
All those things that I stole from you
Well I might give them back someday
Yes I really might someday


I stole your wife
Hope you don't mind
She was looking bored don't you think
I'll soon have her back in the pink
Stop by and see us for tea


I stole your soul
When you weren't looking
I reached inside and cut it free
It suits me more
Than it ever suited you
Hope you like the new me
Hope you like the new me

Just down the river, into the noise and the smoke
Being daring with the staring, uncaring folk
Who laugh with you, laugh at you, you‟ll never get the joke
Gethsemane
And they broke your spirit there in the marines
Flushed your head down in the latrines
Frozen in your sacrament, derailed in your teens
Never saw the enemy


And those bosses betrayed, soon let you go
The fire in your eyes, how could they know
„O be something, be something fine!‟


Now you‟ve got your own boys, hell bent for leather
Dead before they‟re 18, or bitter old men forever
They never saw the halo moon rise over the river
Of Gethsemane
Now there‟s a pain in your head puts lead in your shoes
Better get it seen to, it‟s going to be bad news
How did the perfect world get so confused
O Gethsemane

Who sucked out the freedom, days without end
Under the weight of it all you must bend

O I knew when we met
You‟d never forget
Each pothole and bump in the road
And if I left your side
What a blow to your pride
You‟re that better than me, I suppose

Don‟t mind me, along for the ride

Diz the Gasman says it‟s all right

And get a taste of things
      E
And flap my little wings
B
I‟ll Tag Along


You could be my kind of crowd
Little bit edgy, little bit loud
I test the water, I feel the heat
Before I jump in with both feet


I‟ll Tag Along
I‟ll keep out of your hair
You‟ll hardly know I‟m there
I‟ll Tag Along


A                  G
Love those swirly whirly lights
A                        G
Love that girl with the rips down her tights
A                              G
Might have to hurl when the Molotov bites

My brain‟s elastic, appetite too
Cash or plastic? I‟d kill for the loo

Am


Am                    F
Now I remember the promise I gave you
     C                       Dm
The night I shipped out as a peace volunteer
       Am                      F
As we sat holding hands in the Lamb and Flag tavern
   C                        Dm
I swore I‟d be back for you same time next year


But I killed a man in a Brazzaville street fight
I tried to hold back, but he taunted me so
5 years till they freed me from that Brazzaville prison
Out of boredom or pity, I never will know

      F
Now I bear the stain
     G
The scar on my name
Dm      F            G E
I never can go back again


Am               Dm

A love you can‟t survive
F                   G
And it tears you up inside
Dm         F             G      E
There‟s a love you can‟t survive


I sailed my boat into New Orleans harbour
Tied up at the jetty, as bold as you please
With a half-ton of charlie built in to the bulkhead
Right under the noses of all them police


Now here I sit in my house on the mountain
King of the clouds and all I survey
There‟s women who are willing, and the law can‟t touch me
Yours is the one face that won‟t go away


Now I bear the stain
The scar on my name
I never can go back again


Am             Dm
There‟s a love
                     G
A love you can‟t survive
Am               Dm
There‟s a love

A love you can‟t survive

And it tears it tears you up inside
Dm         FG
And it tears you up inside
F                            G
There‟s a love there‟s a love you can‟t survive

Love comes to you in shadows and disguises

Who walks into the lair of the deceiver


D(m)
They say it was my turn

They say that‟s what you earn

For living through a lie

If I could have my way

I‟d leave it all tomorrow

There‟s sorrow if I stay

I‟ve other fish to fry

Em G (x2)


One door opens, another shuts behind
One sun sets and another sun she rises
Love comes to you in old familiar ways
Love comes to you in shadows and disguises


When love breaks like a precious string of pearls
A thousand memories, they roll away and scatter
Make believe that there‟s ice runs through my veins
Shrug my shoulders, as if it doesn‟t matter


They say it was my turn
They say I had it coming
They say that‟s what you earn
For living through a lie
If I could have my way
I‟d leave it all tomorrow
There‟s sorrow if I stay
I‟ve other fish to fry

Hard to hear my oratory
Hard to hear my inner voice


Van gogh, Botticelli
Scraping paint onto a board
Colour is the fuel of madness
That‟s no way to praise the Lord
Grey‟s the colour of the pious
Knelt upon the misericord


There‟s a message on the wind
Calling me to glory somewhere
There are signs too deep for the dumb
Like perfume in the air
And when I get to Heaven
I won‟t realise I‟m there


<bridge>
Fm Bbm Fm


I‟m familiar with the cover
I don‟t need to read the book
I police the world of action
Inside‟s where I never look
Got no time to help the worthless
Lotus-eaters, Mandarins, crooks


There‟s a message on the wind
Calling me to glory somewhere
There are signs too deep for the dumb
Like perfume in the air
And when I get to Heaven
I won‟t realise I‟m there

He said, Dear, I‟m leaving, right there in the hallway
                               E
As the party roared on all around
                                 B
And her head wouldn‟t turn, O she couldn‟t look at him
      F#              C#m F#
In a whirlpool she quietly drowned
G#m                     D#          G#m       D#
And she said to herself, I won‟t cry, I won‟t grieve
G#m                      D#m          E
But I‟ll laugh and I‟ll flow with the wine
                                            B
With the fast love of strangers we‟ll sing Sweet Bye and Bye
F#                                B
Happy Days and Auld Lang Syne

And she said, I‟ll be wearing my smile like a mask
                                     E
And I‟ll care for each stranger I kiss
                                   B
And no-one will know that I‟m wounded and cheated

So close to my moment of bliss

And sometimes you never connect with a song

Till it‟s telling the way that you feel
                                        B
Putting words to your story, all the pain and the glory

G
Asked my daddy when I was thirteen
                                D
"Daddy, can you tell me what a lover really means?"
G
His eyes went glassy, not a word was said
                                 D
He poured another beer and his face turned red

G                       C
Asked my mother, she acted the same
G                         D
She never looked up, she seemed so ashamed
G                     C
Asked my teacher, he reached for the cane
G                           D
He said "Don't mention that subject again"


Em             C
(Read about love) I read it in a magazine
Em             C
(Read about love) Cosmo and Seventeen
Em             C
(Read about love) In the back of Hustler, Hustler, Hustler
     G F Em D#                G F Em D#
So I know what makes girls sigh
     G F Em D#          G F Em D#
And I know why girls cry
     G         Em C            D
So don't tell me I don't understand
G                Em           C           D
What makes a woman and what makes a man
      G              Em
I've never been to heaven
        C         D           F D
But at least I've read about love


My big brother told me when I was fourteen
It's time I showed you what a lover really means
Girls like kissing and romance too
But a boy's got to know what a man's got to do

He gave me a book, the cover was plain
Written by a doctor with a German name
It had glossy pictures, serious stuff
I read it seven times, then I knew it well enough

(Read about love) And now I've got you
(Read about love) Where I want you
(Read about love) I got you on the test bed, test bed, test bed

So why don't you moan and sigh?
And why do you sit there and cry?
I do everything I'm supposed to do
If something's wrong, then it must be you
I know the ways of a woman

I've read about love

Well, well, well
         G          Em            C          D
When I touch you there it's supposed to feel nice
G               Em      C          D
That's what it said in reader's advice
     G               Em
I've never been to heaven
        C          D          F D
But at least I've read about love

My darling walks the floor, my darling walks the floor
She walks every minute that she can
I heard my darling say, I heard my darling say
That she don't know who I am
Cigarette burns down her arm, said she tried to do herself harm
Tied her arms in the back, trussed her up like a sack


Oh behind grey walls, somewhere there's a soul
Behind grey walls, she's out of control
She's crying out for help, no-one can hear
O Lord have pity on her, O Lord have pity on her


I saw my darling's face, I saw my darling's face
It looked so pale in the distance
She stared out from her room into the dying gloom
And I saw her poor tears glisten
Pills to keep her calm, more punctures than a junkie in her arm

Ah who's that girl in your dreams with you?
You dream too much. It's going to end bad"

And he pulled her on behind and down to Boxhill they did ride


Oh says James to Red Molly "Here's a ring for your right hand
But I'll tell you in earnest I'm a dangerous man.
For I've fought with the law since I was seventeen,
I robbed many a man to get my Vincent machine.
Now I'm 21 years, I might make 22
And I don't mind dying, but for the love of you.
And if fate should break my stride
Then I'll give you my Vincent to ride"

"Come down, come down, Red Molly" called Sergeant McRae
"For they've taken young James Adie for armed robbery.
Shotgun blast hit his chest, left nothing inside.
Oh come down, Red Molly to his dying bedside"
When she came to the hospital, there wasn't much left
He was running out of road, he was running out of breath
But he smiled to see her cry
He said "I'll give you my Vincent to ride"


Says James "In my opinion, there's nothing in this world
Beats a 52 Vincent and a red headed girl.
Now Nortons and Indians and Greeves won't do,
14/01/2011                                                      105                                        simonitov@yahoo.com
Ah, they don't have a soul like a Vincent 52"
Oh he reached for her hand and he slipped her the keys
Said "I've got no further use for these.
I see angels on Ariels in leather and chrome,
Swooping down from heaven to carry me home"
And he gave her one last kiss and died
And he gave her his Vincent to ride.

Her hair extension's down to her knees, what a tease
She got tattoos everywhere you look, she's a comic book
Why she goes for my type I'll never understand
She's so demure when we promenade hand in hand
And when we get back home she let's me know that she's in command


She said "Left, right, right, left. Come on Joe don't be slow.
Up, down, down, up. Come on Joe, it's time to go.

Don't leave a hole for the mystery wind

From some other time, and some other place
Mystery wind make a fool say grace
Lord above how great thou art
Mystery wind blowing right through your heart

Ah, whistling down from out of this world
Take an honest man away from his girl
Stir up trouble in a married man's bed
Make you say things better left unsaid
The mystery wind, the mystery wind


Gm
It's a cruel wind, screams and moans

Don't know where from, don't know where it goes

Rustling the leaves around your door
C                                              Dm
Cold, cold fingers through the cracks in the floor

The mystery wind

Dm


Ah can't you smell it? You can almost feel it
Mystery wind, you just can't see it
Foul your water and steal your bread
Wake up things better left for dead

Mystery wind, are you strong enough
To fight for your right when the time get's tough?
Plague and hunger and burning rain
Too many good men blown away by the mystery wind
The mystery wind


It's a cruel wind, screams and moans
Don't know where from, don't know where it goes
Rustling the leaves around your door
Cold, cold fingers through the cracks in the floor
The mystery wind

Call me precious, I don't mind
78s are hard to find
You just can't get the shellac since the war
This one's the Beltona brand
Finest label in the land
They don't make them like that anymore

Darling though you're twice my size
I don't mean to patronize
Honey let me lead you by the hand
Find a lap or find a chair
You can park it anywhere
Just don't rest your cheeks against my man

Don't sit on my Jimmy Shands
They don't mend with sticky tape and glue
Don't sit on my Jimmy Shands
Don't sit on my Jimmy Shands
And that's my very best advice to you"


No shindig is half complete
Without that famous polka beat
That's why they invite me, I suppose
Waltzes, strathspeys, eights, some reels
Now you know how good it feels
Crank that handle babe, away she goes


I said "Don't sit on my Jimmy Shands
Don't sit on my Jimmy Shands
Unless you want to wind up black and blue"

Does God really care for your life in the suburbs?
Your dull little life full of dull little things
And bring up the babies to be just like daddy
And maybe I'll be there when he gives out the wings

But God loves a drunk, although he's a fool
Oh he wets in his pants and he falls off his stool
And he can't hear the insults, and whispers go by him
As he leans in the doorway and he sings sally racket
He can't feel the cold rain beat down on his body
And soak through his clothes to the skin
O God loves a drunk, come raise up your glasses, amen


Will there be any pen-pushers up there in heaven?
Does crawling and wage-slaving win you God's love?
I pity you worms with your semis and pensions
If you think that'll get you to the kingdom above

Oh God loves a drunk, although he's a clown
Oh you can't help but laugh as he gags and falls down
But he don't give a curse for what people think of him
He screams at his demons alone in the darkness
He's staying alive for just one more pint bottle
Won't you throw him a few pennies, friend?
Ah God loves a drunk, for ever and ever, amen

KEY - ?
NOTES – Help  !!

A man sits down to write a letter, but instead he writes a book
The book begins -
Dear Sir, I don't if you're interested but you're wife is a whore

A man gets on a train and proceeds to take all his clothes off
He begins to play with himself, and he says
"In my country, this is definitely not offensive"

A man pours petrol through his neighbour's letterbox
And throws in a match
The house is engulfed in flames
As the neighbours jump from the upstairs window
He films the whole thing on video
He plays it back to them later in hospital
"Things have been pretty dull at home without you" he says

A man pushes a lawn mower two hundred miles on his knees
To the tomb of the unknown gardener
"Great one" he cries "I've done my penance. I bring my offering.
Grant me, grant me, grant me, pest-free roses"

Psycho Street, friendly people down on Psycho Street
Good neighbours down on Psycho Street
And if you need a hand, need a friend, we understand
And if you need a pal, we'll be there, anyhow
Psycho Street, Psycho Street, Psycho Street

A man stakes his neighbour's cat to the barbecue and turns on the gas
"Now are you going to talk" he says
"Or am I going to have to get nasty?"

A man has an inflatable doll made
That looks exactly like his wife
He murders his wife, dissolves her body in acid
And marries the doll
Three years later, he leaves her for another doll

A man hands his son a brick and says
"Son, throw this brick through the greenhouse next door"
The boy does
The boy next door throws one back
It hits the man on the head and mortally wounds him
"Ah well" he says, as his life blood trickles away
"Boys will be boys"

A thoughtful woman sends her best friend a parcel
Inside, it says, is a free sample, full body beauty treatment
But really it contains acids and chemicals
When her friend tries it, her hair falls out,
Her face is wrinkled and her body scarred
The thoughtful woman turns to her husband and winks
And says "Pre-emptive strike"

Psycho Street, friendly people down on Psycho Street
Good neighbours down on Psycho Street
If you need a hand, need a friend, we understand
And if you need a pal, we'll be there, anyhow
Oh Psycho Street, Psycho Street, Psycho Street
Psycho Street, Psycho Street, Psycho Street

Oh baby, she don't know what to do with herself

When trouble comes down, it comes in threes
Catches her breath and she falls to her knees

Ah baby, she don't know what to do with herself
Oh baby, she don't know what to do with herself
She presses her lips on the window pane
Cries "God in heaven" again and again
Oh baby, she don't know what to do with herself

And I gaze on, gaze on
And I gaze on, gaze on
And I gaze on, gaze on

NOTES – This song has lots of bass note incidentals ... which I can‟t play !


E
Midnight in her room
                       E/G#         A       E
There was music and incense and mirrors all round
        C#m
By the light of the moon
F#m                             B
Her silver dress slipped to the ground

E
Then she knelt like St Joan
              E/G#      A           E
And invisible armies attended her there
C#m
And her knife brightly shone
         F#m       B           E     Esus4   E
As she cut off her long silken hair


G#m            C#m
Trapped, I suppose
G#m          D#    F#m
Lied for my sake
                  G# G#7
Crushed like the rose
      C#m        F#m        A   B
That somebody picked by mistake


Oh I knew it would come
I knew she would leave me for some better start
Oh I knew it would come
She was too well rehearsed in her part
And I measured my life
And my heart fairly broke with the sorrow and care
As she took down the knife
And she cut off her long silken hair


G#m C#m

Oh there's some who believe
Oh there's some who believe there are reasons to lie
And there's some who deceive
And the truth is right there in their eyes
Oh but I don't see why
In all of my life I've seen nothing so fair
And I don't see why
She cut off her long silken hair


C           E
I don't see why
C           E
I don't see why

Hi-----de it away


I break down in the street and I hide it away
Can't speak, can't move my feet and I hide it away
I smile through the mask of my face
But deep and wide is the hurt inside
So I live to love some other day
Laugh at the game and I hide it away
Hide it away
Hide it away

D                               G
Oh you speak the words locked in my breast
D                                Bm      G
But it's late for me, let an old man rest
D                               G
One more black and tan on the barricade
D               A         G      D
To keep me safe from loving

Bm                G       D        G
When I close my eyes, close my eyes
       F#m Am              Em        A
To the cold flame of the Northern Lights
Bm                G       D        G
When I close my eyes, close my eyes
      F#m      G            E A      D
And I see you still in the shuttered night


What a new-found friend is honesty
To see ourselves as others see
To see the shy boy inside the man
Is that all I am? Just starved of loving

When I close my eyes, I close my eyes
To the cold flame of the Northern Lights
When I close my eyes, close my eyes
And I see you still in the shuttered night

She's sitting on the train, the train's gonna to leave

Bags in her hand, tears on her sleeve

Banging on the window with all of my might

But she won't look to the left or the right
G                   F
We had a fight and it wasn't pretty
G                   F
Now she's leaving, ain't it a pity
G                     F
Going to wait tables, down in the city

Hold that red light one more minute
D
6:18's got my baby in it
G
Train don't leave, heart don't break

Train don't leave, heart don't break


Mister guard, get out of that van
Wave that flag, I'm a lonely man
Mister driver, hand off the throttle
Or I'll shoot my luck, lose my bottle
One more minute, I can talk her right 'round
Get her size sixes back on the ground
Train whistle is a lonely sound
I didn't mean the things I told you
Empty arms waiting to hold you
Train don't leave, heart don't break
Train don't leave, heart don't break


<bridge>
G


She's getting off the train, she'd mad and sore
She pokes at my nose with the old southpaw
Swings and misses, turns right 'round
I catch her in time and we fall to the ground
She's got tears but she's laughing as well
We kiss like fools, you never can tell
How a little minute can cast its spell
We never want to see this station again
It's a sad old place for lonely men
Train, train, get down the track
Hell, you can leave and never come back

I found your picture in a corporal's pocket
Bb
His cold fingers still pressed it to his chest
Dm
Sniper's bullet took his eyes and his breath away
G#                                             Cm
Now he lies out in the forest with the rest


You looked shy in your grandmother's wedding dress
Feet set wide like a farm girl stands
Too young to love and too young to lose
In a cracked picture frame in a dead man's hands


Fm
I kept it with me for the luck, for the magic
Cm
Maybe fate wouldn't strike in the same place twice
Dm
But something stirred and I dared to dream of you
C#                                              Cm
And I knew I'd look for you if I should survive


When we stood down at last it was easy to find you
And mine was the shoulder you cried on that day
Just an old comrade doing his duty
Bringing the news from the woods of Darney

D#
When I showed you the picture, perhaps I felt jealousy
Bb9
As your tears welled up with each reminisce
Fm
And my hands may be rougher and my tongue may be coarser
Cm
But I knew I could give you a love good as his


<violin solo>
G# Bb G# Bb G#             Fm


Now we lie in the darkness together
Often we lie without speaking this way
As you stare in the dark do you see your young corporal
Who never came back from the woods of Darney


Is it him that you see when we make love together?
Is it him that you see when war fills the sky?
Was he there as you stood in your grandmother's wedding dress
As we made our own vows, you and I?


Now the bugle calls, they say this is the big one
A curse on the life of a soldier, you say
But don't you know that's a soldier's small comfort
For the bugle to sound, and to hear, and obey


And I'll carry your picture, the one that he carried
I'll wear your innocence and take my chance
On a frozen field, in a far-flung war
To win back what we lost in a field in France

And it's many a soldier who goes into battle
Your corporal and I, we just hear and obey
Perhaps we'll lie in the darkness together
With your love to bind us, in the woods of Darney

She's telling me she don't need headlights

She's telling me the storm is friendly

She says the volts are inviting

She talks in couplets, she steers by lightning


G
She takes a knife to my seatbelt

She says the brakes need mending

She says my mood needs heightening

She talks in couplets, she steers by lightning


Two angels sitting in the back seat
They're pointing at their watches
I feel eternity biting
She talks in couplets, she steers by lightning

E D (repeat lots)


My Maggie, she's got a loose one
She uses Milton as a road map
My Maggie, she is a bright thing
She talks in couplets, she steers by lightning

There's a dark hand, there's a dark hand

There's a dark hand over my heart

There's a dark hand, there's a dark hand

There's a dark hand over my heart

You call me fraud and faker
You call me user, taker
You say I throw you scraps
Prove my strength by holding back
But I shine my honour brightly
Swear my allegiance nightly
But through my hands it slips
The same old demons paint their lips

Sometimes I wonder why I love and let it die
I can't give, I can't live just to hold back, hold back

There's a dark hand, there's a dark hand
There's a dark hand over my heart

There's a dark hand, there's a dark hand
There's a dark hand over my heart

There's a dark hand, there's a dark hand
There's a dark hand over my heart

Oh there's a dark hand, there's a dark hand
There's a dark hand over my heart

So I live to love some other day
Laugh at the game and I hide it away
Hide it away

I know you mean well, call me a sentimental fool
I know sometimes you've got to be kind to be cruel
When you pat me on the back, that was quite some slap
That kind of compliment, it could kill a chap

So I'll drink your health, oh this emotion's given me a thirst
But maybe I'll have my food-taster drink it first

Put it there pal, put it there
You deserve everything you got coming
Put it there pal, put it there
Call me up if you want to come slumming

Some say you're a rattlesnake in the grass
But I say the sun shines out of your arse

So it's no hard feelings, live and let live
With a gift like yours, you're born to give
You're so full of love it leaks out like a sieve
So put it there pal, put it there pal

Am B (repeat till fade)


Put it there

You don't need me creeping around, creeping around your door
Like a lovesick labrador
You don't need a bird-brain from the bottom of the food chain
At the Rory O'More
But it's what you'll get for sure


Oh let me steal your thunder, won't you
Let me be your boy wonder, won't you
Let me thrill you, will you, won't you

You went off to bed, barricaded the door

Sends old shivers over my skin
Love like that, won't let go
It's got some kind of a mind of its own
I can't break out and I can't break in

At least we lived, took it all at a rush
At least we loved too much
Felt too much, cared too much

Blue murder on the dance floor
French kisses in the rain
Blood wedding in the water
Till I see you again
Dutch courage is the game
And the ghost of you walks, the ghost of you walks
The ghost of you walks
