Candy Says

Velvet Underground

   Candy says, I've come to hate my body,
   and all that it requires
  in this world. 
   Candy says, I'd like to know completely,
   what other souls discreetly
  talk about.  
   I'm gonna watch the blue birds fly,
   over my shoulder.
   I'm gonna watch them pass me by,
  maybe when I'm older.
   What do you think I'd see,
  if I could walk away from 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.........
 Doo.......Doo, Doo, 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...
