Stranger in Blue Suede Shoes  Kevin Ayers

[E]I walked into this bar [D]and the [A]man re[D]fused[A]
[E]He said we don?t serve strangers [D]in [A]blue suede [D]shoes[A]
[E]We don?t give credit, [D]and we [A]don?t give [D]way[A]
[E]We have to think about [D]what the [A]people might [D]say[A]
[E]Uh, you know what I mean [D]I said ?[A]Yes I [D]Do?[A]
[E]He gave me a smile [D]that was [A]sickly and [D]wet[A]
[E]And I offered him [D]one of [A]my ciga[D]rettes[A]
[E]He took it, afraid that [D]he [A]might appear [D]rude[A]
[E]Then proceeded to sell me [D]some [A]second class [D]food[A]
[B]Nice guy - [A]meet ?em [G]every[D]where[E]
[E]He said, my oh my, [D]I have [A]suffered too [D]long[A]
[E]And this cigarette [D]seems to [A]be very [D]strong[A]
[E]I don?t make the rules, [D]I [A]get what I [D]take[A]
[E]And I guess every rule [D]was [A]made to [D]break[A]
[E]You can take what you like, [D]it [A]won?t hurt [D]me[A]
[E]Cause I?m just working [D]for [A]the com[D]pany[A]
[E]From the green cigarette, [D]he [A]took a long [D]drag[A]
And said, I [E]think I?ll pack [D]my [A]traveling [D]bag[A]
I?m tired of cheating, and wasting my head
And filling the boss?s bags with bread.
I want to get out in the sun and rain,
And feel the wind on on skin again;
The world is large, and I?ve got time yet.
And, by the way, thanks for that cigarette..
Thank you very much.
You know, I feel like a new man
Yes I do, I don?t know why;
I?d just like to say
Thank you very much(indeed)
It?s a beautiful day
I think I?ll be on my way (right away)
I?d just like to say
Thank you very much.
Yes, I?m getting the hell out of here
Yes, I am - bye, bye.
That?s the end of the message
Thank you very much.
Bye bye...
