Subject: CRD: 'Strange Street Affair Under Blue' by Tim Buckley
Strange Street Affair Under Blue
From Tim Buckley, 1966
Verse 1:
[G]Just for you with your [Cm]open hands
[F]Waiting for the [G]touch [D]of [G]man
[(G)]Clutching with your [Cm]blackened gloves
[F]You try to capture [G]all [D]the [G]doves
That [G]flee [D]in[G]to
The [Cm]forest be[G]fore you
Verse 2:
You wish to catch and cage me now
I wonder if you remember how
Hard it was to say the names
Of mirror dreams and cheated games
And on the wall
You framed your first lover
Verse 3:
Your form intrigues me with the glow
I'll remember you I know
Though I forgot to lock the chain
Around you with a prayer for rain
To bring the call
To drive you back into my bed
She turns away
Telling me to follow for a while
She waits
[Cm]You'd be touched if [D]you would touch
[Cm]But you only [D]reach and taunt
[G]Will my taste stay [Cm]grey and blue
[F]If I try to [G]turn [D]from [G]you
Listen to the song to find out how it goes.
The intro is just electric guitars over a G chord.
I could have tabbed it, but, oh well...
