Gorilla Youre A Desperado-crd  Warren Zevon

(Just corrected a few lyrics - not sure the chords in the second half are correct, though)


[A]Big gorilla at the L.A. [D]zoo.
[A]Snatched the glasses right[E] off my face.
[A]Took the keys to my [D]BMW.
[A]Left me here to t[E]ake his [A]place.
[A]I wish the ape a [D]lot of success.
[A]I'm sorry my [E]apartment's a mess.
[A]Most of all I'm sorry if I[D] made you blue.
[A]I'm betting the [E]gorilla will [A]too.
[A]They say Jesus will find you [D]wherever you go.
[A]When he'll come lookin' for you [E]they don't[A] know.
[A]In the meantime keep your p[D]rofile low.
[A]Gorilla you're a d[E]esperad[A]o.
[F#m]He built a house on an [E]acre of land.
[D]He called in Villa [A]Gorilla.
[F#m]Now I hear he's [E]gettin' divorced.
[D]Layin low at L[A]'Ermitage of course.
(bridge)
[A/D/A/E/A/D/A]              [F#m]Then the ape grew [E]very depressed.
[D]Went through transactional a[A]nalysis.
[F#m]He plays raquetball and r[E]uns in the rain.
[D]Still he's shackled to that [A]platinum chain.
[A]Big gorilla at the L.A. [D]zoo.
[A]Snatched the glasses right [E]off my face.
[A]Took the keys to my [D]BMW.
[A]Left me here to t[E]ake his [A]place.  (ha!)
[A/D/A/E/A/D/A]
