A Small Cigar   Jethro Tull

[D]A small c[D7]igar[Gm] can change the world[A]
I know, I've done it fr[D]equently at p[D7]arties
Where I've won [Gm]all the guests' att[A]ention
With my gener[D]osity[D7] and suave g[Gm]entlemanly b[A]earing
A little fl[D]at tin case is [D7]all you need
Breast-pocket c[Gm]onversation [Asus4]opener[A]
And one of those c[D]iggie lighters that look r[D7]ather good
You can thr[Gm]ow away when [Asus4]empty [A]
Must b[D]e declared a gr[D7]eat success
My sm[Gm]all cigars all v[Bb]anish within m[D]inutes [B]
Am* (An Am with lifted
Em Am Am* e 0 index finger)
Excuse me, mine host, that I may visit B 0
A nearb[G]y tob[D]acconist                          [G]D   [2]2
Em Am Am* A 0
To replenish my supply of small cigars E -
And m[G]ake the party swing again [B]
   I kn[D]ow my clothes seem sh[D7]abby
And don't f[Gm]it this Hampstead s[A]oiree
Where unread copies of R[D]olling Stone
Well-thumbed Pl[D7]ayboys
Decorate the h[Gm]i-fi stereo record sh[A]elves
If y[D]ou ask me they're [D7]on their way
To upper-m[Gm]iddle-class obl[Asus4]ivion [A]
The st[D]upid twits, they r[D7]oll their only
One c[Gm]igarette betw[Asus4]een th[A]em
My sm[D]all cigar's red[D7]undant now
In the h[Gm]aze of smoking ple[Bb]asure
Call [D]it a day, get the h[D7]ell away
Go down the c[Gm]afe, for a c[Bb]up of real t[D]ea [B]
Em Am Am*
By the tube station, there's a drunk old fool
Who sells p[G]apers in the rush hour [D]
Em Am Am*
I hand to him ten small cigars
He sm[G]iles, says, ``Son, God bless you'' [B]
   A sm[D]all cigar has ch[C]anged his world, my friend
A sm[D]all cigar has ch[C]anged the world again
Piano, repeated
Dsus4 D C ... G Bb Asus4 A Asus2 A
A small cigar . . .
