In this wonderfully sexy song there is nothing more than this 12 bars round.
In the chorus, bars 2 and 4 are shortened to half the length, 2/4, which
adds this cool twist to the groove.
The guitar is not that prominent in this song, so I've just notated chords
when it doesn't play anything in particular.

 Verse:
| Am | Am | Ammaj7 | Ammaj7 |

| Am7 | Am7 | D9 | D9 |

| F7 | F7 | E7 | E7 |



 Verse:
The band comes in on D9, and from there the guitar strums these chords:
  D9   x 5 4 5 5 x
  F7   x x 3 2 1 1
  E7   x x 2 1 0 0



 Chorus:
     (2/4)         (2/4)
| Am | Am | Ammaj7 | Ammaj7 |

| Am7 | Am7 | D9 | D9 |

| F7 | F7 | E7 | E7 |

LYRICS ********** I didn't know the day was I didn't know what the time it was I didn't know what my heart would do I was afraid of nothing when you called me on the telephone I was a creature of appetites And we played a game that you didn't like There wasn't nothing that I could do I can be so bad I can be so bad They just took it away and they broke it in two Colour my heart Colour my heart Make it restart Make it restart Colour my heart I want it more than I ever knew The blackest lily The blackest pony Won't protect my heart from you You were unnercingly delicate And I had a weekness for etiquette You laid a trail that led straight to your door And I could resist, but it was hard to ignore Colour my heart +--------------------------------------------------------------------------+ Jon Sebastian Frederiksen - 19th /July /10 Just mail me at Maitinin@gmail.com with questions, comments and corrections!
