"Goin' Through Your Purse" -- Material Issue

From the album _Freak City Soundtrack_.

Written by:  Jim Ellison
Transcribed by:  Mike Novak


I'm not super sure about the chorus, but what I have here works
for me...  And incidently, the lyrics in the liner notes for this
song our wrong in a few places; that's so like them. :)


       G
Well I know it's been a little while

          Bmin
Since the first time that I made you smile

      Emin                       D   C
And I thought I'd take this opportunity

   G
To dig a little deeper inside

    Bmin                              Emin
And try to find out what someone like you

                  D    C
is trying to hide from me


       C                       D
Well I hope that you don't get angry girl

  G        F#    F   E
I hope you don't get hurt

D      C                    D                  C       G
By the things I found while goin' through your purse


Your Make-up, your compact, lipstick, and shit like that
And the keys that you keep on a chain
Your cigarettes and my lighter too
And a picture of your sister
God I think your one in the same

Then I cleverly put all these things back into place so you
Wouldn't think that I was a jerk
The things I found while goin' through your purse


[the solo goes something like this:]

Then I cleverly put all these things back into place so you Wouldn't think that I was a jerk The things I found while goin' through your purse [Drum fill... next verse no guitar] Well a photo of your mother too And all the guys who date you And your high school graduation ring And a check stub from the place you work Some poetry from some Stupid jerk who's tryin' to Steal your heart away from me Well I hope that you don't get offended girl Yeah and I hope you don't get hurt By the things I found while going through Yeah the things I found when I was goin' thru The things I found while goin' thru your purse [variation of solo... end on open Emin chord ] Comments/feedback to: Mike Novak, novakmj@sluvca.slu.edu
