Surprise, Surprise  Brett Dennen

Surprise, Surprise ‚?? Brett Dennen
This is such a great and hugely underappreciated song! I‚??m almost certain that Brett
doesn‚??t do it this way, and there is a ton of adlibbing in the recorded version, but
it‚??s a
good hasty-made foundation. Can be transposed and Capo‚??d if desired. It sounds like it‚??s
on a higher fret in the recording. Listen to the song
for the strum pattern, it‚??s sort of syncopated.
Am C Fbar Gbar x2
Verse 1:
[Am]Dark clouds gather in the afternoon[C]
Come together just to cry[F]
Seagulls struggling against the[G] wind
Falling out of the sky[Am]
[Am]Grandma's gathering aluminum can[C]s
In a rusty shopping cart[F]
Born-againers getting their lives togeth[G]er
While my whole world's falling apart[Am]
[F]Open up your eyes
It's happening all around y[G]ou
If it hasn't fou[F]nd you
Well you know it's just a matter of time[G]
[F]Surprise, surprise
What do you think the world owes you[G]
It's not the way it's supposed t[F]o go
Well you know it's just a matter of time[G]
Verse 2:
[Am]Songbird sitting in a tree house[C]
With a trumpet to her lips[F]
I'm laying on my back in the tall green [G]grass
Staring up at the eclips[Am]e
[Am]Whispers lurking in the alley behind[C]
Where the children wear no shoes[F]
Call girls and corner kids hustling[G]
Saying what do you got to lose[Am]
[E]And there's nowhere you can run to[F]
Because the eyes are [C]upon you[E]
Verse 3:
[Am]Some of the coming up hard and hungry[C]
Stepping up to take your turn[F]
Some of them throwing their money in the[G] fire
Just to watch it burn[Am]
It's just a matter of
It's just a matter of time
