Graham Parker – And It Shook Me lyrics

G Em G Em
And it shook me, it shook me up, it shook me up, yeah

G C Em
I remember the way you looked when we first met
G C Em
There are some things in this world you can't forget
You were standing underneath the light I lost my heart, It felt all right
G C Em
And it shook me, and I'm still shaking now.

I remember rainy nights I thought I'd drown
Was it London New York Paris or Amsterdam
I forget the details no I must admit But you were there through all of it
And it shook me, and I'm still shaking now.

Repeat chorus (then) Instrumental verse (ends with Em / D twice)

Will you hold on and hope our grip don't fail
Sometimes lovers hammer in their own coffin nails
I just read how universes start, continually they blow apart
And it shook me and I'm still shaking now.

Some believe in a heaven up above
With a God that forgives all with his great love
Well I forgive you if you forgive me, hey! Who needs the third party anyway
And it shook me and I'm still shaking now.

Chorus (repeat and fade)
