Cherry Came Too
by the Jesus and Mary Chain, from the album Darklands
tuning: all strings 1/2 step down (Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb)
chords and lyrics transcribed by John Spencer
(intro) A
[A]When she walks towards me I feel [D]something
[E]Crawl beneath my [A]skin
And all the electric stars are [D]shining
Ben[E]eath my skin and
[D]Cherry takes me to the place above
With barbed wire kisses and her love
[D]We're going where the ocean's blue
[B]Kick the dust and [D]you can come [E]too
(repeat verse chords)
In the light of all my darkest moments
Things fall into place
And all the soft dark coloured awnings
Fall into place and
Cherry's scratching like a grain of sand
The trigger itch in the killer's hand
Me and Cherry are so extreme
Making love to the sound of a scream
[A]Oh Cherry honey you got me stuck on a rope
You got me running around
With the fear in my head for [D]you
[E] And I want [A]you
[A] And I'll give you my [D]head
[E] And all the things it [A]said
And I'd give you my [D]thoughts
[E] If those things weren't [A]lost
And I'll give you my [D]soul
[E] To beat it with your [A]pole
A D E (repeat 4 times)
(same chord pattern as previous part)
I'm gonna give you my head
You could kick it dead
And I'll give you my head
Come on and kick me dead
Come on and push me down
Come on and drag me down
Oh and Cherry be bad
Come on and kiss my head
