Another great Enz song. Works OK on the guitar but sounds better on the

Poor Boy  - Split Enz
From 'True Colours' and 'Enz of an Era'.

Em          D     Bm7           Am
 My love is alien, I picked her up by chance
C                D                A         Em
 She speaks to me with ultra-high frequency
Em       D            Bm7                Am
 A radio band of gold, gonna listen 'til I grow old
 Ooh hoo hoo
 What more can a poor boy...
