Memo From Turner
Didn't I s[A]ee you down in San [A7]Antone on a hot and d[D7]usty night?
You were eating eggs in Sammy's wh[A]en the black man there d[D7]rew his knife.
[A]Or you drowned [A]that Jew in Rampton as he washed his s[D7]leevless shirt.
You know that Spanish [D7]speaking gentleman, the [A]one that we call Kurt.
[Bm] [G] [A]  
[C#m]Come now, [Bm]gentleman, I know [D]there's some mis[A]take
How for[C#m]getful I'm beco[Bm]ming now you f[D]ixed your business s[A]traight
I rem[A]ember you in Hemlock Road in [D7]nineteen fifty si[A]x
You were a f[A]aggy little leather boy with a s[D7]maller piece of [A]stick
You were a [A]lashing smashing hunk of a man,
your [D]sweat shined sweet and [A]strong
Your [D7]organ's working pe[A]rfectly, but there's a [Bm]part
that's not [G] screwed on[E7]
[A] [E7] [A] [E] [A] [E7] [A] [E]  
Weren't you [A]at the Coke Convention back in n[D]ineteen sixty five[A]
You're the misbred grey executive I've seen heavily advertised
You're the g[A]reat grey man whose daughter licks polic[D]emen's buttons clea[A]n
You[D]'re the man who squats beh[A]ind the man
who works [Bm] th[G]e soft machine[A]
[C#m]Come now, ge[Bm]ntlemen, your love [D] is all I crav[A]e
You'll sti[C#m]ll be in the ci[Bm]rcus when I'm laug[D]hing,
laughing in my grav[A]e
Well re[A]member who you say you are but k[D7]eep your noses cle[A]an
Boys wil[A]l be boys and play with toys. So be [D] strong with your be[A]ast
Oh [A]Rosie dear, don'cha think it's queer. So [D]stop me if you please[A]
The [D7]baby's dead, my l[A]ady said.
You gent[Bm]lemen will you all [G] work for [A]me
When the [A]old men do all the fighting and the [D7]young men all look [A]on
And the [A]young girls eat their mother's meat from [D]tubes of plasti[A]con
Be w[A]ary of these my gentle friends of [D]all the skin you breed[A]
To [D7]have that tasty [A]habit,
it's [Bm]not the [G]hands that [A]bleed
