St Vincent - Prince Johnny chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
just a simple way of playing it acoustically. hopefully it works out for everyone! 

the notes in brackets are just optional little add ons i like to throw in, not 
complicated cos i'm dense but it gives it a nice swingy sound. so just stick to 
the A in the verse etc. hopefully it's playable at least. enjoy! 

corrections encouraged.



             Am
Prince Johnny,
     (G)Am                      (G)Am
You're kind but you're not simple
      (G)Am                      (G)Am
By now I think I know the difference
          D      C      G
You wanna be the son of someone


  G                           Em
Remember the time we went and snorted
  G                                   Em
A piece of the Berlin wall that you'd extorted
    D      C      G
And we had such a laugh of it?
D         C     G
Prostrate on my carpet

    Am     (G)Am                    (G)Am
You traced the Andes with your index
           (G)Am                                   (G)Am
And brag of when and where and who you gonna bed next
D        C       G
All with sons of someones
D        C       G
All with sons of someones


                Am(G)Am    Am(G)Am
Saw you pray to all
                     D
To make you a real boy
                Am(G)Am    Am(G)Am
Saw you pray to all
                     D
To make you a real boy

       Am
Prince Johnny,
(G)Am                         (G)Am
You're kind but do be careful
   Am  (G)Am                        (G)Am
By now I know just when to stand clear
     D        C           G
When all your friends and acolytes are
D       C        G
Holding court in bathroom stalls

                  Am(G)Am     Am(G)Am
Where you pray to all
                     D
To make you a real boy
                Am(G)Am    Am(G)Am
Saw you pray to all
                     D
To make you a real boy

(4 beat pause)

    G                       Em
But honey, don't mistake my affection
    G                            Em
For another spit-and-penny style redemption
      D         C       G
Cause we're all sons of someones
D         C       G
We're all sons of someones
        D(E) C    (D)       G
I wanna mean more than they mean to you
        D(E) C    (D)    G
I wanna mean more than I meant to him

             Am(G)Am    Am(G)Am
So I pray to all
   D                  Em
To make me a real girl

             Am(G)Am    Am(G)Am
So I pray to all
   D                  Em
To make me a real girl
