How To Play


Dsus2                    Cadd9 G6
Spent some time feelin inferior
Riff                    D
Standing in front of my mirror
Dsus2                        Cadd9 G6
Combed my hair in a thousand ways
Riff                            D
But I came out looking just the same
Dsus2                               Cadd9 G6
Daddy said, son, you better see the world
Riff                                  D
I wouldn't blame you if you wanted to leave
Dsus2                                 Cadd9 G6
But remember one thing dont lose your head
Riff                          D
To a woman that'll spend your bread
           G*   D   G*   D  G*  D  G* D
So I got out
Dsus2                            Cadd9 G6
Paris was a place you could hide away
Riff                       D
If you felt you didn't fit in
Dsus2                            Cadd9 G6
French police wouldnt give me no peace
Riff                       D
They claimed I was a nasty person
Dsus2                               Cadd9 G6
Down along the left bank minding my own
Was knocked down by a human stampede
Dsus2                                 Cadd9 G6
Got arrested for inciting a peaceful riot
Riff                           D
When all I wanted was a cup of tea
            G*   D   G*   D  G*  D
I was accused                    I moved on
Dsus2                           Cadd9 G6
Down in rome I wasnt getting enough
Riff                                 D
Of the things that keeps a young man alive
Dsus2                         Cadd9 G6
My body stunk but I kept my funk
Riff                              D
At a time when I was right out of luck
Dsus2                       Cadd9 G6
Getting desperate indeed I was
Riff                     D
Looking like a tourist attraction
Dsus2                          Cadd9 G6
Oh my dear I better get out of here
Riff                         D
for the vatican dont give no sanction
        G*              D    G*  D
I wasnt ready for that, no no     
G*                     D
I moved right out east yeah!
      Dsus2                       Cadd9 G6
On the peking ferry I was feeling merry
Riff                   D
Sailing on my way back here
Dsus2                            Cadd9 G6
I fell in love with a slit eyed lady
Riff                       D
By the light of an eastern moon
Dsus2                       Cadd9 G6
Shangai Lil never used the pill
Riff                          D
She claimed that it just aint natural
Dsus2                             Cadd9 G6
She took me up on deck and bit my neck
   G*                        D
Oh people I was glad I found her
      G*                  D      G*   D   G*  D
Oh yeah I was glad I found her
Dsus2                 Cadd9 G6
I firmly believe that I 
Riff                  D
didnt need anyone but me
Dsus2                           Cadd9 G6
I sincerely thought I was so complete
Riff                   D
Look how wrong you can be
Dsus2                                    Cadd9 G6
The women Ive known I wouldnt let tie my shoe
Riff                              D
They wouldnt give you the time of day
Dsus2                                    Cadd9 G6
But the slit eyed lady knocked me off my feet
G*                D
God I was glad I found her
Dsus2                                     Cadd9 G6
And if they had the words I could tell to you
Riff                            D
To help you on the way down the road
Dsus2                                      Cadd9 G6
I couldnt quote you no dickens, shelley or keats
Riff                      D
cause its all been said before
Dsus2                        Cadd9         G6
Make the best out of the bad just laugh it off
          G                 D
You didnt have to come here anyway
So remember, every picture tells a story don't it
