Candy Says  Velvet Underground

[D]  Candy [F#m]says,[F] I've come to hat[B]e my body,
[Em]  and all that i[A]t requires
  [D]in this world.[A]
[D]  Candy [F#m]says,[F] I'd like to kno[B]w completely,
[Em]  what other so[A]uls discreetly
  [D]talk about. [A]
[D]  I'm gonna [G]watch the blue birds [E]fly,
[A]  over my shoulder.
[D]  I'm gonna [G]watch them pass me by[E],
  [A]maybe when I'm older.
[C]  What do you think I'd [G]see,
  if [A]I could walk away from [C]me?    (4 beat pause)
VERSE 2: (same chords as verse 1)
Candy says, I hate the quite places,
that cause the smallest taste
of what will be.
Candy says, I hate the big descisions,
that cause endless revisions
in my mind.
CHORUS (again)
D (8 bts) G (8 bts)
..........Doo, Doo, Whaa.........
[D]Doo.......Doo, Doo, [G]Whaa......... (x4)
(end on)
It is kind of difficult to convey where exactly the chords change, as they
don't line up perfectly with the words. Every chord lasts for 4 beats and
the words are placed over them. There is also a lot of chord picking that
goes on that I have no clue how to play. And that's it...
