(Ian Hunter)

Intro Noodle on D Intro G C D X4
C D C D C D
Wrote this poem called "the floods roll on" he said this ain't yours,
C D
where'd you get it from?
C D
you must have stole it from a book, oh yeah
C D C D C
you must have stole it from a book. 'cause you ain't frail you ain't beautiful,
D
and I don't fancy you at all.
G C D
AHHHhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
G C D
You'd be a ruin if looks could kill 23 A, Swan Hill
C D C D C D C D
Stiff with rage screaming at the sky innocence breaks says she wants to die
C D C D
I'm assuming I'm alive oh yeah I'm assuming I'm alive
C D C D
she pushes and she pulls my legs go weak in fascinating terror
G C D
G C D
The whole world moves and I'm standing still in 23 A Swan Hill
Em G D Em G D
and it's always raining and you never ask why
Em G D C D
you never give yourself a shot you just sit and watch your life go by
G C D X 2 and G C D X 2 with the Mouth Organ bit
C D C D C D C D
Kicking stones at a still life want to pull it down slash it slash it
C D C D
there must be some way out here there must be some way out here
C D C D
this ain't right there must be more to life than breaking and entering
D D
doing people's heads in alcohol, nicotine thinking what I might have been
G C D
G C D
You would be a ruin if looks could kill 23 A, Swan Hill
G C D
And the whole world moves and I'm standing still in 23 A, Swan Hill
G C D
and I will, and I will and I will, and I will in 23 A, Swan Hill
G C D
and I will, and I will and I will, and I will in 23 A, Swan Hill
G C D
and I will, and I will and I will, and I will in 23 A, Swan Hill
