Back Street Slide  Richard Thompson

Intro: D F D F D F A7 D F D F D F G

Those [D]backstreet [F]women, [D]watch what you [F]say
You [G]turn your back and they slide away
They [D]run next [F]door, they [D]give it all a[F]way
[G]Doing the [D]sli[A7]de

The [D]backstreet [F]slide, the [D]backstreet [F]slide
[G]They're gonna get you, dead or a[F]live
[D]Stab you in the [F]back with a [D]kitchen [F]knife
[G]Doing the backstreet [Em]slide
Do it all day, [C]do the backstreet [D]slide [F]   [D]   [F]

Gatemouth woman leaning on the fence
She's got no teeth, she's got no sense
You don't need much intelligence
Doing the slide


Slide over here, slide over there
Spreading that scandal everywhere
Stab you in the back and they just don't care
Doing the slide

Now slander is a loving tongue
They speak your name to everyone
Never is a curse left unsung
Doing the slide

Chorus (2X)

Ending: A G F E D (4X) D C D A (2X) A G F E D (4X)
