Cinderella  Firefall

Words and music by Larry Burnett
(from the album "FireFall")
(Note: This song is played in a modal D tuning. Both the high and low E strings are
down to D. The Dm9 is played like an Am, with the middle finger of the left hand picked up,
the G string open. G is a different form also, because of the modal tuning. Play G by
the fifth fret on both the low D and A strings.)
[D]Last December [Dm9]I met a girl, [Fmaj7]she took a likin? to [C]me
Said she loved me, [Am7]but she didn?t know the [D]meanin? of the word
[D]She imagined [Dm9]love to be grand, me [Fmaj7]holdin? her hand and
[C]Wisperin? sweet things [Am7]and, cooin? softly like a[D] songbird
[D]Then one mornin? [Dm9]she came to me, with a [Fmaj7]tear in her eye and a
[C]Sigh on her breath Lord [Am7]she said, "Hon, I?m [D]heavy with child"
[D]I said "God damn girl [Dm9]can?t you see, that I?m [Fmaj7]breakin? my back
Just [C]tryin? to keep my head above [Am7]water, and it?s [D]turnin? me wild
[D]Cinderella [G]can?t you see, [A]don?t want your [D]company
[D]You better leave this mornin? [G]leave today,
[A]take your love and your [G]child [D]away
[D]No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no; [Dm9]No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no;
[Fmaj7]No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no; [C]No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no;
[Am7]No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no; [D]No, no, no, no, no
[D]Woh, woh, woh...etc. [Am7]Woh, woh, woh, [D]no
[D]Rockin? chair on the [Dm9]front porch, and I?m [Fmaj7]thinkin? about all [C]the
things that I did as a young [Am7]man, now that I?m [D]old
[D]I remember [Dm9]her and the boy, did he [Fmaj7]have all the toys and the [C]joys
That a young man [Am7]should have, before he [D]gets too old
[D]Cinderella [G]couldn?t you see, [A]I didn?t want your [D]company
[D] [G] [A] 
Sh[G]oulda left that mornin, left that day, took your love and your child...
