Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Cocamamie Business  George Harrison

Bust my [Am]back on the Levy - broke my strings on the BBC
                                    [Dm]Found my chops on Eel Pie Island -[C] paid my dues at[E7] the[G] Marquee
Slagged [Am]off by the N.M.E. - lost my [Dm]stash and my virginity
In this [Dm]Cockamamie [E7]Busin[Am]ess
Got my [Am]face on Ed Sullivan - broke my heart on the Soul Train
Intro[Dm]duced to Bad Company - lost c[C]ells down at Brain [E7]Drain[G]
And be[Am]fore I could mend - lost the [Dm]missus, missed the girlfriend
In this [Dm]Cockamamie [E7]Busi[Am]ness
Now we l[Am]ike to air condition - though the air has no ozone ring
[Dm]Still they're chopping down t[C]he forest for McDonalds and the Burger
Eating [Am]cows with such persistance - doesn't [Dm]offer much resistance
To this [Dm]Cockamamie [E7]Busin[Am]ess
There are [Am]too many things - stressing out the nervous system
[Dm]Girls you used to know - f[C]ellas that may have kissed'[E7]em[G]
Some got [Am]rabies - Some got fleas - some got [Dm]incurable diseases
>From this[Dm] Cockamamie[E7] Bus[Am]iness
[Am]Everybody's after as many points as they can get
As long as it's not [Dm]them that has to pay
No one [C]really minds the [E7]Debt[G]
5-Star [Am]actors, tax inspectors, film [Dm]producers and directors
With their [Dm]Cockamamie [E7]Busi[Am]ness
Well you d[Am]o what you can - can't do much more than that
(No you can't do what he just said)
Some [Dm]days you're pretty sharp - on o[C]ther days you feel [E7]half dea[G]d
(While you make your daily bread)
Didn't [Am]want to be a star - wanted [Dm]just to play guitar
In this [Dm]Cockamamie [E7]Busi[Am]ness
