A Small Cigar

Jethro Tull

 DD7GmA
 A small cigar can change the world 
 DD7
I know, I've done it frequently at parties
 GmA
Where I've won all the guests' attention
 DD7GmA
With my generosity and suave gentlemanly bearing
 DD7
A little flat tin case is all you need
 GmAsus4A
Breast-pocket conversation opener 
 DD7
And one of those ciggie lighters that look rather good
 GmAsus4A
You can throw away when empty  
 DD7
Must be declared a great success
 GmBbDB
My small cigars all vanish within minutes  
Am* (An Am with lifted
Em Am Am* e 0 index finger)
Excuse me, mine host, that I may visit B 0
 GDG2
A nearby tobacconist                          D   2
Em Am Am* A 0
To replenish my supply of small cigars E -
 GB
And make the party swing again  
 DD7
   I know my clothes seem shabby
 GmA
And don't fit this Hampstead soiree
 D
Where unread copies of Rolling Stone
 D7
Well-thumbed Playboys
 GmA
Decorate the hi-fi stereo record shelves
 DD7
If you ask me they're on their way
 GmAsus4A
To upper-middle-class oblivion  
 DD7
The stupid twits, they roll their only
 GmAsus4A
One cigarette between them
 DD7
My small cigar's redundant now
 GmBb
In the haze of smoking pleasure
 DD7
Call it a day, get the hell away
 GmBbDB
Go down the cafe, for a cup of real tea  
Em Am Am*
By the tube station, there's a drunk old fool
 GD
Who sells papers in the rush hour  
Em Am Am*
I hand to him ten small cigars
 GB
He smiles, says, ``Son, God bless you''  
 DC
   A small cigar has changed his world, my friend
 DC
A small cigar has changed the world again
Piano, repeated
Dsus4 D C ... G Bb Asus4 A Asus2 A
A small cigar . . .
