Don Mclean – The More You Pay chords

DThe auctioneer said, I'm not through yet,
C A DHere's a horse the likes of which you've never seen,
G C \ B Am EmAnd the straw hats in the sun, with a face beneath each one,
C\B G AmShown doubtful and the auctioneer got mean.
Am G F EDo you think that you can find a horse like this every day?
Am G F EI don't think there's any better on this earth,
Am E AmAnd the more you pay, the more it's worth.
DThen out she came, a snow-white mare,
C A DPrancin' and a dancin' in the silver sun,
G C \ B Am EmThey watched her from behind, as she did her bump and grind,
C\B G AmWalkin' naked, sad and graceful for their fun.
Am G F EOh how I wished I could afford that lady painted white,
Am G F EA queen with high nobility of birth,
Am E AmBut the more you pay, the more it's worth.
DMy pockets hung with empty blues,
C A DSilent heels were standin' on my growin' pains,
G C \ B Am EmMy bid was not too bad, two bits was all I had,
C\B G AmAnd the stable boy just handed me the reins.
Am G F EWell the gallery went wild, and the auctioneer half smiled,
Am G F E What we don't sell we shoot or give away,
Am E Am'Cause the more you pay, the more it's worth.
Bm Em Bm EmAnd where was the boy, who rode on her back,
Bm Em AWith his arms holding tight round her neck?
Bm EmHow tightly he clung,
Bm Em When they both were young,
C B AmAnd fate had not let this poor girl be so
