How To Play

VERSE
Am         Dm           Am
Somebody killed Little Susie
     E             F
The girl with the tune
                  E
Who sings in the daytime at noon
Am                Dm
She was there screaming
Am            E            F
Beating her voice in her doom
            E
But nobody came to her soon
 
CHORUS
   Am              Dm
A fall down the stairs
      Am                 E            F
Her dress torn, oh, the blood in her hair
              E
A mystery so sullen in air
     Am              E
She lies there so tenderly
Am               Dm
Fashioned so slenderly
Am             Dm
Lift her with care
          E
Oh, the blood in her hair
 
VERSE
Am        Dm      Am
Everyone came to see
           E          F
The girl that now is dead
                   E
So blind stare the eyes in her head...
     Am         Dm              Am
And suddenly a voice from the crowd said
      E            F
This girl lived in vain
                   E
Her face bear such agony, such strain...
 
CHORUS
    Am        Dm            Am
But only the man from next door
             E                 F
Knew Little Susie and how he cried
                        E
As he reached down to close Susie's eyes...
     Am           E
She lie there so tenderly
 Am            Dm
Fashioned so slenderly
 Am            Dm
Lift her with care
         E
Oh the blood in her hair...
 
VERSE
       Dm            Bb
It was all for God's sake
          Gm         A
For her singing the tune
       Bb                  A
For someone to feel her despair
        Dm            Bb        Gm               A
To be damned to know hoping is dead, and you're doomed
          Bb                     E
Then to scream out and nobody's there
 
 
She knew no one cared
 
 Am          Dm         Am
Father left home, poor mother died
    E           F
Leaving Susie alone
               E
Grandfather's soul too had flown
 Am        Dm
No one to care
         Am           E            F
Just to love her how much can one bear
               E
Rejecting the needs in her prayers
 
CHORUS
    Am          Dm
Neglection can kill
         Am           E          F
Like a knife in your soul oh it will
                     E
Little Susie fought so hard to live
     Am           E
She lie there so tenderly
 Am            Dm
Fashioned so slenderly
 Am            Dm
Lift her with care
    E
So young and so fair
