Capo III

Lover dont t[C/G]urn your head, [D]  just let me w[G]alk away  [Gmaj7]
Thought I might h[C/G]ave to say you're as[D]king the wrong [Am]guy
She wonders [Em]how,
Thinks she knows [C/G]now      [D]

The great big[Cdim5] no    the great big [C]no    (x2)

Break: C/G D G Gmaj7 C/G D G

Is nothing OK with you, is nothing OK with me?
Is anything happening to have to got sea?
He wonders why, the indigo guy...
He'll be right they always go by the by
The great big no, the great big no (x2)

[Am]Everyo[Em]ne   knows ev[C/G]erything
Every[Am]one [Em]   knows e[C/G]verything
Nobody's[Am]   g[Em]ot no one to [C/G]go to
The great big [C/G]no   (x4)

Continue for last bit: "Lover dont turn your head etc..."
Am Em C/G

[D]I know a place where I can [G]go when I'm a[Em]lone
i[G]nto your a[Em]rms     whoa    i[G]nto your a[Em]rms
I can g[D]o  [D6]

I know a place that's safe and w[G]arm from the c[Em]rowd
i[G]nto your a[Em]rms     whoa    i[G]nto your a[Em]rms
I can g[D]o  [D6]

   ( ^ = Downstroke, v = Upstroke)

[Dmaj7]Bite my [G]tongue
[Dmaj7]and I won't say a word a[G]gainst anyone
but I [F#m]don't wanna get my f[Bm]ingers wet
un[G]less it's an acci[Em]dent

fell out on the street
now I'm watching my shoes and I grit my teeth
but I don't have to look that way
if I had half a say

[D/F#]It's about [G]time
[D/F#]It's about [G]time
[D/F#]lick my [G]lips
[D/F#]and I won't hear the end of [G]this

On your knees a reassurance
buy some time and come back for it
before long
before it's gone
patience is like bread I say
I ran out of that yesterday

it's about time
it's about time

[G]enough about us
let's talk about me
if not about you
It's n[A]ot about sunshine

It's about time
It's about time
touch my leg
It's smooth but there stubble there

I'll fall back and let'em go
only when I know you know
I don't know
make me sure
Have your people contact mine
and keep your lawyer on the line

it's about time (x4)

[G]If I was in the fridge
[C]Would you open the door?
[G]If I was the grass
[D]Would you mow your lawn?
[G]If I was your body
[C]Would you still wear clothes?
[G]If I was a buger
[D]Would you blow your nose?
[C]Where would you keep it?
[D]Would'ja eat it?
I'm just [C]trying to give my[D]self a [Em]reason      [C]
for [D]being a[G]round.

If I was a front porch swing
Would you let me hang?
If I was a dance floor
Would you shake-your-thang?
If I was a rubber check
Would you let me bounce
Up and down inside your bank account?
Would you trust me
Not to break you?
I'm just trying really hard to make you
notice me being around.

If I was a haircut
Would you wear a hat?
If I was a maid
Could I clean your flat?
If I was a carpet
Would you wipe your feet?
In time to save me from mud off the street?
If you like me,
If you love me,
Would you get down on your knees and scrub me?
I'm a a little grubby
From being around
