Hello it's me - Lou Reed/John Cale
(from the album Songs for Drella, 1990)

Basically the chord progression is A  F#m  E.
Most of the time, however, the F#m is played
as a F#m7. The way the chords are played varies, I
only sorted out the first verse.

(I know I messed up the timing, but to play it correctly you'll have to listen to the original anyway. It's too complex to put on paper for me). Andy it's me, haven't seen you in a while I wished I talked to you more when you were alive I thought you were self-assured when you acted shy hello it's me I really miss you, I really miss your mind I haven't heard ideas like that for such a long, long time I loved to watch you draw and watch you paint but when I saw you last I turned away When Billy Name was sick and locked up in his room you asked me for some speed, I thought it was for you I'm sorry that I doubted your good heart things always seem to end before they start Hello it's me, that was a great gallery show your cow wallpaper and your floating silver pillows I wish I paid more attention when they laughed at you Hello it's me Pop goes pop artist, the headline said is shooting a put on, is Warhol really dead? you get less time for stealing a car I remember thinking as I heard my own record in a bar They really hated you, now all that's changed but I have some resentments that can never be unmade you hit me where it hurt I didn't laugh your diaries are not a worthy epitaph Well now Andy, guess we've got to go I hope some way somehow you like this little show I know it is late in coming but it's the only way I know hello it's me, goodnight Andy goodbye Andy That's it, please send corrections, reactions etc to Jeroen van der Laak Someone please post something of Prince or Miles Davis.
