Big Black Smoke  Kinks

----------------------------------------------------------------------------



----------------------------------------------------------------------------

[Em]She was [Em7M]sick and [Em7]tired of [Em6]country [C7M]life.
A little country [Em]home, A little country folk,
Made her blood run [B7]cold.
Now her [A7]mother pines her heart away,
Looking for her child in the big black [Em]smoke,
In the big black [Em]smoke.
[Em]Frailest, [Em7M]purest [Em7]girl the [Em6]world has [C7M]seen,
According to her [Em]Ma, according to her Pa,
And everybody [B7]said,
That she [A7]knew no sin and did no wrong,
Till she walked the streets of the big [Em]black smoke,
Of the big black [Em]smoke.
Well she [B7]slept in caffs and coffee bars and bowling alleys,
And every penny she [Em]had  [B7]
Was [G]spent on purple hearts and ciga[B7]rettes.
[Em]She took [Em7M]all her [Em7]pretty [Em6]coloured [C7M]clothes,
And ran away from [Em]home, And the boy next door
For a boy named [B7]Joe.
And he [A7]took her money for the rent
And tried to drag her down in the big black [Em]smoke,
In the big black [Em]smoke.
In the big black [Em]smoke.
In the big black [Em]smoke.
