How To Play

VERSE 1
A  G#dim           A        G#dim Bm        A
   When the angels take the angel voice away
G#dim            A     G#dim   Bm             Bm7
Some lower their eyes, some of us shout cheats
                    Dmaj7/C#              A6/9
For cheating on the deal, pulling off the sting,
                  C#m7#5/A
For tuning up the harps, for dishing out the wings
 
CHORUS
Bm D/A Bm   D/A          F#m7#5/D  E6/9
If they can dance on the head of a pin
Bm    D/A  Bm   D/A     F#m7#5/D          E6/9
Don't that tell you something about their skin
Emaj7             Emaj7 Fm#5
Hard faced little bas - tards
 
VERSE 2
Bm7   Bm              E6/B C#m11/B            Bm7 Bm
      When the angels take the angel voice away
               E6/B C#m11/B
Jealously they see the sometimes man you'd be
D/A  Aaug         A     D/A                  A
     Must get so blasé, knowing you'll never die,
D/A           A      G#dim Bm         Bm7
Lounging on a cloud, polishing the sky
                 Dmaj7/C#                   A6/9
The memories are blue, but borrowed for the day
                C#m7#5/A
They sit around ignored, till someone goes away
 
CHORUS
Bm D/A Bm   D/A          F#m7#5/D  E6/9
If they can dance on the head of a pin
Bm    D/A  Bm   D/A     F#m7#5/D          E6/9
Don't that tell you something about their skin
Emaj7             Emaj7 Fm#5
Hard faced little bas - tards
