Sweet Lady Genevieve  Kinks

[G]Once under a [D]scarlet [Em]sky
[C]I t[G]old you n[D]ever ending lies
But they were the words of a [A]drunken v[C]agabond [G]
[D]Who knew very well he would [A]break your h[C]eart before l[G]ong
[C]Oh for[G]give me G[D]enevieve
[G]Now I've come [D]back to [Em]see
[C]Sweet La[G]dy G[D]enevieve
[D]This time I'll give you s[A]ome secu[C]rity [G]
[D]And I will make promises [A]I c[C]an ke[G]ep
[C]So will you come back to [G]me
[C]Sweet [D]Lady [G]Genevieve        [G-D-G-D]
[D]Let me rock you, hold you
[A]Take you [C]in my a[G]rms
[D]Oh forgive me, please
[B]Smile away all your [Em]sadness, p[A]ut your trust in [D]me
Oh if you come back to me Sweet Lady Genevieve,
I'm not the impetuous fool that you used to know
I know that I used you and I hurt you so,
But that was so long ago Sweet Lady Genevieve.

Oh, love me,
Take me in your arms.
Let me rock you, hold you,
Smile away all your sadness, put your trust in me.

Once under a starry sky I led you on and told you lies
Drank too much whiskey on that hot summer night.
I acted so slyly because you were acting so shy,
Oh forgive me Genevieve.

If you come back to me Sweet Lady Genevieve,
You're not the child who smiled so innocently
And I'm not the rogue that I used to be,
So will you come back to me Sweet Lady Genevieve.
