[C] [F] [C/E] [G/D] [C] [F] [C] [G] Is it al[C]l in that pretty [F]little head o[C/E]f yours?[G/D] [G]
What goes on in tha[C]t place in the dar[F]k?[C] [G]
Well I used t[C]o know a girl and I woul[F]d have [C/E]sworn[G/D] [G]
That her name was [F]Veronica[G] [Csus4] [C]
Well she used to h[C]ave a carefree mind of her [F]own[C/E] [G/D] [G]
And a delicate l[C]ook in he[F]r eye[C] [G]
Th[C]ese days I'm afra[F]id she's not ev[C/E]en shure[G/D] [G]
If her name is[F] Veroni[G]ca[Csus4] [C]
[C]Do you suppose,[Dm] that waiting hands on ey[Dm(maj7]es
Ve[Dm7]ronica has gone to[G] hide?
And all[Dm] the time she laughs [Dm(maj7]at those
Who shout [Dm7]her name and steal her clothes[G]
F F#7
Veronica - Veronica - Veronica
[G] [Dm/G] [Em/G] [G] [Dm/G] [Em/G] [G] Did the days dr[C]ag by? Did the[F] favour wane?[C/E] [G/D] [G]
Did he roam do[C]wn the town all the time[F]?[C] [G]
Will you wake fro[C]m a dream, with the w[F]olf at the door[C/E] [G/D] [G]
Reaching out for Ve[F]ronica?[G] [Csus4] [C]
Well it [C]was all sixty-fiv[F]e years ago[C/E] [G/D] [G]
When the world was t[C]he street where she li[F]ved[C] [G]
And a young ma[C]n sailed on a ship [F]in the sea[C/E] [G/D] [G]
With a picture o[F]f Veronica[G] [Csus4] [C]
On the "Empress of[Am] India"[Fm]
And as s[Bb]he closed her eyes upon the world[C]
And picked[Am] upon the bones of last week's news[Fm]
She spoke [Bb]his name out loud again
[C]Do you suppose,[Dm] that waiting hands on ey[Dm(maj7]es
Ve[Dm7]ronica has gone to[G] hide?
And all[Dm] the time she laughs [Dm(maj7]at those
Who shout [Dm7]her name and steal her clothes[G]

[G] [Dm/G] [Em/G] [G] [Dm/G] [Em/G] [G] Veroni[C]ca sits in[F] her favourite ch[C/E]air[G/D] [G]
And she sits ver[C]y quiet and st[F]ill[C] [G]
And they call her[C] name that the[F]y never get right[C/E] [G/D] [G]
And if they d[F]on't then nobody else will[G] [Csus4] [C]
But she used to h[C]ave a carefree mind of her[F] own[C/E] [G/D] [G]
With devilish[C] look in [F]her eye[C] [G]
Saying "You can [C]call me anyt[F]hing you like[C/E] [G/D] [G]
But my name is [F]Veronica"[G] [Csus4] [C]
[C]Do you suppose,[Dm] that waiting hands on ey[Dm(maj7]es
Ve[Dm7]ronica has gone to[G] hide?
And all[Dm] the time she laughs [Dm(maj7]at those
Who shout [Dm7]her name and steal her clothes[G]
