Kevin Ayers – Stranger In Blue Suede Shoes tab


E                      D       A     D    A
I walked into this bar and the man refused
E                                D  A          D    A  
He said we don’t serve strangers in blue suede shoes
E                     D      A          D  A 
We don’t give credit, and we don’t give way
E                      D        A            D  A 
We have to think about what the people might say
E                        D       A     D  A
Uh, you know what I mean I said “Yes I Do”
E                  D        A          D  A
He gave me a smile that was sickly and wet
E                 D      A      D     A
And I offered him one of my cigarettes
E                       D  A            D   A
He took it, afraid that he might appear rude
E                         D    A            D   A
Then proceeded to sell me some second class food
B          A        G    D    E
Nice guy - meet ’em everywhere

E                  D      A            D   A
He said, my oh my, I have suffered too long
E                  D        A       D     A
And this cigarette seems to be very strong
E                       D A          D   A
I don’t make the rules, I get what I take
E                      D   A       D    A 
And I guess every rule was made to break
E                           D  A          D A
You can take what you like, it won’t hurt me
E                      D   A      D   A
Cause I’m just working for the company
E                         D  A           D   A
From the green cigarette, he took a long drag
            E               D  A         D   A                        
And said, I think I’ll pack my traveling bag

I’m tired of cheating, and wasting my head
And filling the boss’s bags with bread.
I want to get out in the sun and rain,
And feel the wind on on skin again;
The world is large, and I’ve got time yet.
And, by the way, thanks for that cigarette..
Thank you very much.

You know, I feel like a new man
Yes I do, I don’t know why;
I’d just like to say
Thank you very much(indeed)
It’s a beautiful day
I think I’ll be on my way (right away)
I’d just like to say
Thank you very much.
Yes, I’m getting the hell out of here
Yes, I am - bye, bye.
That’s the end of the message
Thank you very much.
Bye bye...
