 Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds

 Something's Gotten Hold of My Heart


 From "Kicking Against the Pricks" (1985)

 Paul McMullan key corrections by Michael Daugsch

 Original version by Gene Pitney, ca. 1967

 Also done by

 Marc Almond (& Gene Pitney), ca. 1987



 (NOTE: These chords are really for Gene Pitney's original; Cave does it in

 a lower key, but I haven't bothered to check out which. - Trond.)


 Michael : (I tried to figure out Cave´s tune, and it sounds pretty close, so enjoy)



 A E5 C Bm (Not 100% correct)


 (E5)Something's gotten hold of my (D)heart

 Keeping my (C)soul and my (Bm)senses A(E5)part

 Something's gotten into my (D)life

 Cutting it's (C)way through my (Bm)dreams like a (E5)knife

 (D)Turning me (C)up, and (Bm)turning me (E5)down

 (D)Making me (C)smile, and (Bm)making me (E5)frown


 (E5)In A world that was (D)small

 I once lived in a (G)time that was (C)peace and no (Bm)troubles at (E5)al=


 But then you came my (D)way

 And a feeling (of) un(E5)known shook my (D)heart,

 made me (A)want you to (D)stay

 (A)All of my (D)nights, and (A)all of my (C)days


 (Bm) (yeah I gotta tell you now)

 (E5)Something's gotten hold of my (D)hand

 Dragging my (C)soul to A (Bm)beautiful (E5)land

 Yeah, something has invaded my (D)night

 Painting my (C)sleep with A (Bm)colour so (E5)bright

 (D)Changing the (C)grey, and (Bm)changing the (E5)blue

 (D)Scarlet for (C)me, and (Bm)scarlet for (E5)you


 [(Am)]I (Fm[(E)])got[(C)] to [(Bm7)]know if this is the real thing

 I (Fm)got to know it's making my heart sing


 Wo-hoo-(A)o-ye-E-E-E-E E-(A)
