My Friend

Jimi Hendrix

 GC7FF#G
Well I'm looking through Harlem, my stomach squeals just a little more.
 GC/EFF#G
The stagecoach full of feathers and footprints rolls up to my soapbox door.
 B/F#EmEm/DC
Now a lady with a pearl handled necktie tied to the driver's fence
G Bb/F C/E C#dim Edim Gdim A#dim*
breathes in my face bourbon and coke possessed words,
 GB/F#EmEm/DCFG
"Haven't I seen you somewhere in hell, or was it just an accident?"

(play first two measures of intro and say)
"You know how I felt then"

Chorus
 B/F#EmEm/DC
And sometimes it's not so easy 'specially when your only friend
 GB/F#EmEm/DCFG
 talks, sees, looks and feels like you. You do just the same as him.

(play intro and say)
"It gets very lonely out here in this room baby"
