Telephone Book  Violent Femmes

Song: Telephone Book
Artist: Violent Femmes
Album: 3
Transcribed by Wesley Torres <>
Verse 1:
I [G]look at my telephone book
I can't stand the way it look
I hate to think the way you took
Me [Em]down into a burning rage
I wrote your name on every page
But [G]you don't [D]return my [G]calls
Verse 2:
[G]You don't return my calls
You don't return my calls
I'm ready to bust down these walls
I'm going down Niagara Falls
[Em] in a barrel of fun hey ain't I a lucky one
[G]you don't [D]return my [G]calls
Verse 3:
[G]My telephone is the color red
My telephone is the color red
The red is all in my head
Some things are better left unsaid
[Em] Is that why you don't try
To acknowledge or reply why
[G]you don't [D]return my [G]calls
repeat Verse 1:
[C]Did you hear from an old friend
I [G]knew once way back when
[Em] I did some bad things to [C]myself and my [D]health
[C]Or did you happen to hear an old
[G]song I once sang
Did it[Em] make your sweet sweet blood run cold in your [C]veins
And will you [D]never think of me the same
