Graham Parker – Ten Girls Ago lyrics

Intro: E A E A E

E A E
Buster turned round to me And said hey kid you must be joking
E A C#m
You got an attitude You think you're funny but you're choking hey hey
A E
Back every word that comes out of your mouth (Ten girls ago)
E A B
You thought you had something to laugh about

Chorus
E A E A
But it was just a crazy thing The wrong act in the wrong circus ring
E A E A
The sweet pain of a needle's sting Ten girls ago, ten girls ago

Eddie and Burt sneaked out the back And threw up before every scene

The camera rolled and my life Flashed before me just as if in a dream
A dog was leading me round on a chain Ten girls ago
I kicked it but I ended up in pain

Chorus 2
But it was just a crazy thing Flying an airplane made of string
Sweet pain of a needle's sting Ten girls ago

Bridge
C#m A B C#m7
Wrap it up in a paper cup Put it in a bag for me
C#m A B B7
Get yourself another dog Ah you're barking up the wrong tree

Guitar break Same as intro modulated to F# B F#

And now I stand a hope in hell
Of not ending up in the bottom of a well
A place where all lost souls must go
When they don't know where their life is going
And now life glows with a life of it's own Ten girls ago
I would have told you my chances were blown

(then) chorus I (then) chorus 2
