Memo From Turner
 AA7D7
    Didn't I see you down in San Antone on a hot and dusty night?
 AD7
You were eating eggs in Sammy's when the black man there drew his knife.
 AAD7
 Or you drowned that Jew in Rampton as he washed his sleevless shirt.
 D7A
You know that Spanish speaking gentleman, the one that we call Kurt.
 BmGAC#mBmDA
             Come now, gentleman, I know there's some mistake
 C#mBmDA
How forgetful I'm becoming now you fixed your business straight
 AD7A
    I remember you in Hemlock Road in nineteen fifty six
 AD7A
You were a faggy little leather boy with a smaller piece of stick
 A
You were a lashing smashing hunk of a man,
 DA
your sweat shined sweet and strong
 D7ABm
Your organ's working perfectly, but there's a part
 GE7
that's not   screwed on 
 AE7AEAE7AEADA
                                 Weren't you at the Coke Convention back in nineteen sixty five 
You're the misbred grey executive I've seen heavily advertised
 ADA
You're the great grey man whose daughter licks policemen's buttons clean
 DA
You're the man who squats behind the man
 BmGA
who works            the soft machine 
 C#mBmDA
 Come now, gentlemen, your love  is all I crave
 C#mBmD
You'll still be in the circus when I'm laughing,
 A
laughing            in my grave
 AD7A
      Well remember who you say you are but keep your noses clean
 ADA
Boys will be boys and play with toys. So be   strong with your beast
 ADA
Oh Rosie dear, don'cha think it's queer. So stop me if you please 
 D7A
The baby's dead, my lady said.
 BmGA
You gentlemen       will you all         work for me
 AD7A
    When the old men do all the fighting and the young men all look on
 ADA
And the young girls eat their mother's meat from tubes of plasticon
 ADA
Be wary of these my gentle friends of all the skin you breed 
 D7A
To have that tasty habit,
 BmGA
it's not       the hands    that bleed
 Bans--
