Sweet Painted Lady  Elton John



I'[G]m back on dry land once again
Oppor[Gmaj7]tunity awaits me like a rat in the drain
[Dm]We're all hunting [G7]honey with money to burn[C]
Cm G\B Am D
Just a short time to show you the tricks that we've learned
                                    If the [G]boys all behave themselves here
Well there's [Gmaj7]pretty young ladies and beer in the rear
[Dm]You won't need a [G7]gutter to sleep in tonight[C]
Cm G\B Am D
Oh the prices I charge here will see you alright
                                    So she [G]lays down beside me again
My [Gmaj7]sweet painted lady, the one with no name
[Dm]Many have used her and [G7]many still do [C]
C G\B Am D
There's a place in the world for a woman like you
                                    Oh [G]sweet painted l[F#]ady
[F]Seems it's always been the [E7]same
[Am7]Getting paid for [D]being laid
[G]Guess that's the name of the [Am7]game
Oh[G] sweet painted l[F#]ady
[F]Seems it's always been the [E7]same
[Am7]Getting paid for [D]being laid
[G]Guess that's the name of the [Am7]game[D]
O[G]h! [D7]
                                    Forget us we'll have [G]gone very soon
Just for[Gmaj7]get we ever slept in your rooms
And [Dm]we'll leave the smell of the [G7]sea in your beds[C]
Cm G\B Am D
Where love's just a job and nothing is said
                                    So she [G]lays down beside me again
My [Gmaj7]sweet painted lady, the one with no name
[Dm]Many have used her and [G7]many still do [C]
C G\B Am D
There's a place in the world for a woman like you
(REPEAT)
[G]   [F#]    [F]   [E7]    [Am7]     [D]   [G]   [Am7]    [D]       [G]   [F#]    [F]   [E7]    [Am7]     [D]   [G]   [Am7]    [D]   [G]
