"Georgie And Her Rival" (Capo: 3rd. fret)

___Intro:

 C6  C6  D

___Verse: 1

 E
 Georgie grew to hate her name
    A              B6
 it sounded like a tiny man
         Emaj7
 and the one she had said "I can't see you,
A                 E       B/D#     A/C#
 but I'll call you when___ever I___can"
                           E6         B              A6
 sometimes the phone would ring, when she was half__a_sleep
               E6                 B              A         
 a voice would drag her down with it's suggestions
                       E          C    Em7            Dmaj7
 though she often felt cheated___, she never felt___cheap

___Chorus:

F#m
 Well heaven knows what fi___lls the heart
G                   Bm
 and makes you feel so___alive
A                   C#m
 It's impossible to tear___apart
 Cmaj7      Am7              D
 Geor__gie__and__her__ri____val

___Verse: 2

 Emaj7
 It was half___past Fe__bruary
        A                   B6
 and he hadn't called since New Year's Day
 Emaj7               E6
 Maybe he'd found ano___ther woman
    A                  E      B/D#        A/C#
 to say those words no chapel girl should say
                    Emaj7   B               A6
 her mother would phone and always keep her talking
                   E     B        A
 she'd try to be polite, making fa__ces
                      E                 Cmaj7    Am7           Dmaj7
 but somewhere in the back of her mind, her ri___val was stal__king

___Chorus:

F#m
 Well heaven knows what fi___lls the heart
G                   Bm
 and makes you feel so___alive
A                   C#m
 It's impossible to tear___apart
 Cmaj7      Am7             D
 Geor__gie__and__her__ri____val

___Bridge:

G#m              Emaj7
 Her rival would al__ways wait___
C#m7      G#m7        Eb
 till the eighth or ni___nth bell___
G#m                E            A/C#       D6  Dmaj7
 he'd be desperate an___yway and drunk as well______
     Bm                 Bm/A        G#dim7            E7
 she always liked to hurt__him___to prove he was prepa___red
    Bm             Bm/A            G#dim7
 to love her an__yway__that she wan___ted
        E             C6           D
 so she could tell____which she preferred

___Verse: 3

 Emaj7
 He sat up with his address book
 A                    B6
 trying to think what mood___he's in
     Emaj7
 his finger traced past Georgie's name
    A                  C#m       Bmaj7  
 to someone who needed less persua__ding
    C#m        [ch]Emaj7/B[/ch]        A      E
 He did__n't hear__through her__disguise__
    Amaj7            E    B
 he didn't leave her in a rush
      E6                                 A
 just like the pro__mise that he left on her__machine
      E        B         A
 that al__most made__her blush
                   E       B
 the radio plays a lover's symphony__
A                    E/B             
 the number you have dialed has been re-directed
A                        E
 now she puts him on the speaker-phone___
     C6                Em      Dmaj7
 whene__ver__she__has__com___pany___

___Chorus:

F#m
 Well heaven knows what fi___lls the heart
G                   Bm
 and makes you feel so___alive
A                   C#m
 It's impossible to tear___apart
 C          Em7             D
