This song should really be played in the key of E to be plucked
the same as the recording, but this version will do well for 
strummers.

Prettiest Eyes
by Beautiful South

transcribed by Rob Matson

D        G 
Line One  is the time

D               A            G       D
 when you,  you first stayed over at mine.

       A               G         D
And we drank our first bottle of wine.

A    G       D
     Then we cried.


             G
Two,  we're away,

D                A        G          D 
and we both,  we both had nowhere to stay.

         A            G       D
Well the bus shelters always okay,

A   G           D
    when you're young.


BRIDGE:
           D                        G
Now you're older and I look at your face,

      D                     G
Every wrinkle is so easy to place,

      D                            Bm
And I only write them down just in case

           A
You should die.


CHORUS 1:
                          D                 Bm
Just take a look at these crows feet,  just look

G                        A
Sitting on the prettiest eyes,

D                     Bm
Sixty twenty-fifth of Decembers,

G                      A
Fifty-nine fourth of Julys.

G                          A
Not through the age or the failure children,

D                          Bm
Not through the hate or despise.

D                         Bm
Take a good look at these crows feet,

A              G          D
Sitting on the prettiest eyes


VERSE 2:

Line Three,  I forget,
But I think,  I think it was our first ever bet,
And the horse we backed was short of a leg --
Never mind

Four,  in a park,
And the things,  the things that people do in the dark.
I could hear the faintest beat of your heart
Then we did.


Repeat BRIDGE

CHORUS 2:
Just take a look at these crows feet, just look
Sitting on the prettiest eyes
60 25th of Decembers
59 4th of Julys
You can't have too many good times children 
You can't have too many lines
Take a good look at these crows feet sitting on the prettiest eyes


        D                G          D
Well my eyes look like a map of the town

       D                G                 D
And my teeth are either yellow or they're brown

           G              A          D                  Bm
But you'll never hear the crack of a frown when you are here

          G              A          D
No you'll never hear the crack of a frown.


Of a frown...
