Turning of the Tide  Richard Thompson

transcribed by phillip@princeton.edu
[F]How many boys, one night stands
How many lips, how many hands have [C]held you
Like I'm [Bb]holding you to[C]night
[F]Too many nights staying up late
Too much powder, too much paint
Oh you [C]can't hide from the [Bb]Turning of the [C]Tide
[Dm]Did they [F]run their fingers [Bb]up and down your shabby dress
[Dm]Did they [F]find some tender [Bb]moment there in [C]your caress?
[F]Boys all say you look so fine
Don't come back for a second time
You [C]can't hide from the [Bb]Turning of the [C]Tide
Poor little sailor boy, never set eyes on a woman before
Did he tell you that he'd love you, darling, for ever more?
Pretty little shoes, cheap perfume
Creaking bed in the hotel room
You can't hide from the Turning of the Tide
Did they run their fingers up and down your shabby dress
Did they find some tender moment there in your caress?
Boys all say you look so fine
Don't come back for a second time
You can't hide from the Turning of the Tide
Ending F
