Asus4     Am/G                F       Am/E Am/D            Asus4 Am/G F Am/E Am/D
  She saw me walking down the streets of   your fine city
Asus4                  Am/G        F         Am/E   Am/D        Asus4 Am/G F Am/E Am/D

Asus4                 Am/G    F    Am/E Am/D              Asus4 Am/G F Am/E Am/D

Asus4        Am/G    F Am/E Am/D                    Asus4 Am/G F Am/E Am/D
  What can I lose if I      just give a little ear?
         Asus4     Am/G  F Am/E Am/D              Asus4 Am/G F Am/E Am/D

Asus4         Am/G         F Am/E Am/D  Asus4    Am/G F Am/E Am/D

Asus4           Am/G        F     Am/E Am/D         Asus4 Am/G F Am/E Am/D

Asus4         Am/G            F Am/E   Am/D     Asus4   Am/G F Am/E Am/D
I just looked her in her eyes    and I said, "No, are you?"

Said to myself, said "She's just a crazy, crazy, crazy little mixed up dame
Asus4          Am/G        F         Am/E Am/D
  She's just a victim of society and all  it's games"
