Not A Pretty Girl
F#m: 244222 My version probably isn't any better than
A: 5776xx the one already on the internet, but mine
D: 5577xx is in a standard tuning (which is easier).
E: 7799xx It's pretty close just listen to the cd to
B: 22444x the rthym down. (note: slide between barre
intro: F#m A D E 2x
I am not a prett[F#m]y girl
[A] [D] that is not what I do[E]
I ain't no dams[F#m]el in distess[A]
and I don't need to[D] be rescued[E]
so put me down pun[F#m]k[A]
wouldn't you prefer a m[D]aiden fair[E]
[B] isn't there a kitten stuck up a tree somewher[D]e
I am not an angry girl
but it seems like I've got everyone fooled
every time I say something they find hard to hear
they chalk it up to my anger
and never to their own fear
and imagine you're a girl
just trying to finally come clean
knowing full well they'd prefer you
were dirty and smiling
and I am sorry
I am not a maiden fair
and I am not a kitten stuck up a tree somewhere
solo: F#m A D E (2x)
and generally my generation
wouldn't be caught dead working for the man
and generally I agree with them
trouble is you gotta have youself an alternate plan
and I have earned my disillusionment
I have been working all of my life
and I am a patriot
I have been fighting the good fight
and what if there are no damsels in distress
what if I knew that and I called your bluff?
don't you think every kitten figures out how to get down
whether or not you ever show up
I am not a pretty girl
I don't want to be a pretty girl
no I want to be more than a pretty girl
