Cracker – Gentleman's Blues lyrics

Intro & break:
Bm-f#7(bass c#)-g-f#7-bm-c#m-g-f#7-g-f#7-bm-g-f#7-bm-f#7

Bm where are my f#7(bass c#) god's green g grasses? f#7
Bm yellow blue c#m fishes of the g sea f#7
G where are f#7 you, my sweet bm darling? g
My sweet darling, I'll f#7 drown in miser-bm-y f#7

And on the golden days of summer
Robbed from pharoah's ancient tombs
And the silver hours, they are mashed and sour
My sweet darling, where have you gone?


Past the dead and awkward factory
Anthracite grey on cobblestone
And the sooted flowers, on gentleman's towers
My sweet darling, where have you gone?

Break x2 (fade on second)
