Amanda Palmer - Melody Dean chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
F
I never met a lady
C        Bb
Quite as pretty as Melody Dean
F
And when I laid my head down on her 
C        Bb
heart it beated out your name
F
And so I had to 
C
listen to her
Bb 
heart beat several hundred times and
F
She was very 
C
nice about it
Bb
Held my hand and didn't mind
F
I never put my foot in the same 
C        Bb
River twice I don't like getting wet
F
You take the good you take the bad
C        Bb
You take it all and that is all you get
F
The fact is you would rather I be 
C        Bb
lonely in a bathtub with a book
F
The fact is you would rather I sat 
C        Bb
Pining on our pictures from New York

New York, New York, New York

But

F C Bb
I get torn to pieces
F C Bb
For the stupidest reasons
F C Bb
All I want's to love the one I'm with
Just like the song says

F
I don't like picking sides I don't like
C        Bb 
Sticking my Sharona in a box
F
I like to spread her out on different 
C        Bb
Crackers, yeah I like the way she looks
F
And when I go to bed at night with 
C Bb
Melody undressing in my head
F
To get tot sleep you know that I would 
C        Bb
Rather be undressing you instead
Instead, instead, instead

F
I never met a lady quite as 
C
Pretty as Melody Dean and
Bb
Even though I know you are a little bit angry with me
F
You know that it is you I love
C
And you I want to get me off
Bb
But you can only do that when you're here
And right now you are not
F

(Instrumental break follows the exact same pattern)
F
I never cross the Continental 
C        Bb
Divide without thinking about you
F
I am a tree that's carved up with her
C        Bb 
Name she is a warrior tattoo
F
And the fact is you're selective about 
C        Bb
what you can remember for a start
F
The fact is you're just jealous as all 
C        Bb
Get out we can do it in the dark
The dark, the dark, the dark

But

F C Bb
I get torn to pieces
F C Bb
For the stupidest reasons
F C Bb
All I want's to love the one I'm with
Just like Steven Stills says

F
I never met a lady quite as 
C
Pretty as Melody Dean and
Bb
Even though I know you are a little bit angry with me
F
You know that it is you I love
C
And you I want to get me off
Bb
But you can only do that when you're here
And right now you are not
