Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Cooksferry Queen  Richard Thompson

Well there'[D]s a house in an alley

In the squats and low-rise
Of a t[A]own with no future
But that's [Bm]where my future l[G]ies
It's a [D]secret, but no secret
It's a rule, but no rule
Where you find the darkest avenue
There you'll find the brightest jewel
D (hammer on G)
Now my name it is Mulvaney
And I'm known quite famously
People s[A]peak my name in whispers
What h[Bm]igher praise can there be?!
D (hammer on G)
But I'd trade my fine mohair
For tied-dyes and faded jeans
If she [A]wanted me some other way
She's my C[Bm]ooksferry [G]Queen
D (hammer on G)
She gave me one pill to get bigger
D (hammer on G)
She gave me one pill to get small
D (hammer on G)
I saw snakes dancing all around her feet
D (hammer on G)
And Dead men coming throught the wall
Bm D (hammer on G)
Well I'm the prince of this parish
Bm D (hammer on G)
I've been ruthless and I've been mean
But she blew [Bm]my mind as she [D]opened my eyes
She's my C[Bm]ooksferry [G]Queen

Yeaaaaah
Well she's got every rare perfection
All her looks beyond compare
She's got dresses that seem to float in the wind
Pre-Raphaelite curls in her hair

She could get the lame to walking
She could get the blind to see
She could make wine out of Thames river water
She could make a believer out of me
Yes I'd trade it all tomorrow

All the wicked things I've been
She's my bright jewel of the alley
She's my Cooksferry Queen
Yes I'd trade it all tomorrow
All the wicked things I've been
She's my bright jewel of the alley
She's my Cooksferry Queen
