Belle & Sebastian

Capo 4th fret

C/G FHe had a stroke at the age of 24
F C/GIt could have been a brilliant career
Am Em FPainting lines in a school that was too well known
Am Em F Painting lines with a friend that had gone before
F D/F# G She challenged everyone to a fight
F C GBut the people all backed down
F C GAnd they ran her out of town
F C GBecause she drank and swore and spoke
F C DOut of turn, she was the village joke
C/G FShe had a stroke at the age of 24
F C/GIt could have been a brilliant career
Am Em FGetting clients to finance her strategies
Am Em FShe's filling time in on Safeways on Saturday
F D/F# GShe wears the clothes of an emperor
F C GBut her paintings are a sham
F C GAnd they're going for a grand
F C GWhen the dealers come to view
F C DDo they ever see the real you?
C/G FHe had a stroke at the age of 24
F C/GIt could have been a brilliant career
Am Em FSelling lies to the boys with the old Dansettes
Am Em FPulling the wool, playing the fool, it's no wonder that
F D/F# GHe is dribbling spit tonight
F C GAnd the one he sent away
F C GWas the only one who stayed
F C GWith a spoon and a decent book
F C GAnd you can tell by the way she looks
F C GHe is sorry and resigned
F C DAs he wets himself for the final time
