INTRO

[Ebmaj7] [G7sus4]

VERSE 1

[A7] Dazed, all of my [F#m7] blood on the pillow
And [Em7] she says, “It’s [Bb6] late, you must [A] go
If [A7] we meet again try not to [F#m7] faint in my hallway
And [Em7] don’t throw my [Bb6] mirror a [A] round”

[Dm7] Seven years of bad luck coming round

CHORUS 1

[C] Ambulance for [Fmaj7] one
I’ve [D] had all I can [G] take
What [C] pretty shapes these [Fmaj7] lines [Eb6] ma [G7sus4] ke

[C] Have you met my [Fmaj7] friend
He [D] says his name is [G] Tim
[C] Take him home and [Fmaj7] kill [Eb6] hi [G7sus4] m

VERSE 2

[A7] Hess dances in [F#m7] rain in the garden
He’s [Em7]laughing with his [Bb6] membranes all [A] torn
And a [A7] great battered face leers back at [F#m7] me from the mirror
[Em7] Melting in the [Bb6] heat and the [A] noise

[Dm7] Yes, I think I’ll crack now

CHORUS 2

[C] Ambulance for [Fmaj7] one
I’ve [D] had all I can [G] take
What [C] gloomy shapes her [Fmaj7] thighs [Eb6] ma [G7sus4] ke

[C] Have you met my [Fmaj7] friend
He [D] says his name is [G] Tim
[C] Take him home and [Fmaj7] kill [Eb6] hi [G7sus4] m

FADE
