My Friend  Jimi Hendrix
























Well I'm [G]looking through [C7]Harlem, my stomach [F]squeals just a [F#]little [G]more.
The s[G]tagecoach full of [C/E]feathers and footprints rolls [F]up to my [F#]soapbox [G]door.
Now a [B/F#]lady with a pearl handled necktie tied [Em]to the [Em/D]driver's [C]fence
G Bb/F C/E C#dim Edim Gdim A#dim*
breathes in my face bourbon and coke possessed words,
"Haven't I [G]seen you some[B/F#]where in [Em]hell, or [Em/D]was it [C]just an [F]acci[G]dent?"

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

Chorus
And [B/F#]sometimes it's not so easy 'specially [Em]when [Em/D]your only [C]friend
[G]talks, [B/F#]sees, looks and [Em]feels like[Em/D] you. You [C]do just the [F]same as [G]him.

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