Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Kooks  David Bowie

W[D]ill y[Dsus4]ou stay in ou[D]r Love[Dsus4]rs' Sto[D]ry
[D]If y[Dsus4]ou stay y[D]ou won't [D5]be [Dsus4]sorry [D]
Cos [C]we believe in you[C]  [C/B]
[Am]Soon you'll g[D]row so t[Am]ake a cha[D]nce
With a co[Am]uple of k[D]ooks [Am]hung up on ro[F]manc[C]ing


[D]We bought a lot of things to keep you w[A]arm and dry
And a fu[D]nny old crib on which the pa[A]int won't dry
I[D] bought you a pa[G]ir of shoes
A[D] trumpet you can blow and a b[G]ook of rules
On w[D]hat to say to people when they pi[A]ck on you

Cos if you stay with us you're gonna be pretty kookie too


And if you ever have to go to school
Remember how they messed up this old fool
Don't pick fights with the bullies or the cads
Cos I'm not much cop at punching other people's dads
And if the homework brings you down
Then we'll throw it on the fire
And take the car downtown

CHORUS (key change):
W[E]ill y[Esus4]ou stay in ou[E]r Lo[Esus4]vers' S[E]tory
[E]If y[Esus4]ou stay y[E]ou won't [E5]be [Esus4]sorry [E]
Cos [D]we believe in you[D]  [D/C#]
[Bm]Soon you'll g[E]row so t[Bm]ake a cha[E]nce
With a co[Bm]uple of k[E]ooks [Bm]hung up on ro[G]manc[D]ing
