"You are lost and disillusioned!"
what an awful thing to say.
I know this show doesn't matter.
It means nothing to me.
I thought I might help them understand
but what an ugly thing to see.
"I am not an animal"
subtitled under the screen.

Call me a leper
Call me a leper
Call me a leper

bidge2:B-/B-/D/G/B-/B-/D/G/A

When I tried to tell my story
They cut me off to take a break.
I sat silent 5 commercuials
I had nothing left to say
The talk show host was index-carded
All organized and blank
The other guests were scared and hardened
What a sad parade.

What a sad parade

Call me a leper
Call me a leper
Call me a leper

Anyway, I have tabbed the little lead in from the verses to the chorus
for New Test Leper, and also the chords to strum over the tab. Here
goes.

----2----------2----------4----------------------2-------2-----0-------0-----|

[-----]From: Jacob Knee (jknee@globalnet.co.uk)
Enclosed is my slightly different attempt at working out the basic chord
structure of this song - (taken from the acoustic version).

(I've done it as 'corrections' to the version you already had)

>NEW TEST LEPER
>
>the verse goes like this:
>A*:540005
>
>D A G -A* D A G (4x, me thinks)

(This bit is more or less right - though on the slide up to the fifth fret
I'm not sure if the bass notes are being played)

>the chorus (im pretty sure about this) goes like this:
>
>G A B C D C(3x) G A B C D (that may be wrong - it's >from memory)
>
>Bridge:
>Bm A D(4x, me thinks)
>and end on Em(7?)

I would guess the chorus is:

A, Bm, C#m, D
A, G ('Call me a leper')
(on last time - just A)

And the bridge I would say is:
(Bm, D, G X2), A
