Genius - Warren Zevon

Chorded by Egg Flipper

Standard Tuning

Dm CI've got a bitter pot of je ne sais quoi
Dm CGuess what? I'm stirring it with a monkey's paw
Bb ASince I saw you coming out of my barber's shop
Dm AmIn that skimpy little halter top
Dm CDid you light the candles? Did you put on "Kind of Blue"?
Dm CDid you use that Ivy League voodoo on him, too?
Bb AHe thinks he'll be alright but he doesn't know for sure
Dm AmLike every other unindicted co-conspirator
F CMata Hari had a house in France
Dm CWhere she worked on all her secret plans
Bb AMen were falling for her sight unseen
Dm AmShe was a genius
Dm CThere's a a face in every window of the Songwriters' Neighborhood
Dm CEverybody's your best friend when you're doing well, I mean good
Bb AmThe poet who lived next door when you were young and poor
Dm AmGrew up to be a backstabbing entrepreneur
F CAlbert Einstein was a ladies' man
Dm CWhile he was working on his universal plan
Bb AHe was making out like Charlie Sheen
Dm AmHe was a genius
Dm CWhen you dropped me and you staked your claim
Dm COn a V.I.P. who could make your name
Bb AYou latched on to him and I became
Dm AmA minor incon-venience
Dm CYour protege don't care about art
Dm CI'm the one who always told you you were smart
Bb AYou broke my heart into smithereens
Dm AmAnd that took genius
Dm CYou and the barber make a handsome pair
Dm CGuess what? I never liked the way he cut your hair
Bb AI didn't like the way he turned your head
Dm AmBut there's nothing I can do or say I haven't done or said
F CEverybody needs a place to stand
Dm CAnd a method for their schemes and scams
Bb AIf I could only get my record clean
DmI'd be a genius
