The Original Mixed Up Kid

(Ian Hunter)

A A Bm Bm
The original mixed up kid sleeps with the ladies all night
into an empty bed pillows around his head
E7 E7 A A
Comes home in the morning light to nothing climbs
to hide the tears he sheds for no one and
D D/Db E7 A A/Ab A/F# A/E
Byron said happiness is born a twin and
D D/Db E7 A A/Ab A/F# A/E
those who share well they will always win
D D/Db E7 A A/Ab F#m
what about the man who tried so hard but his heart is locked within
A A Bm Bm
The original mixed up kid must have been at the end of the line
E7 E7 A A
When the gave out the forms to sign for someone and he
D D/Db E7 A A/Ab A/F# A/E
can't make up his mind where he wants to go is there
D D/Db E7 A A/Ab A/F# A/E
a heaven is ther a hell well I just don't know for in a
D D/Db E7 A A/Ab F#m
crowded street he can see the street while the other man just sees the snow
A A Bm Bm
The Original Mixed up kid be on your concience round for you
E7 E7 A A
for you turned him upside down for nothing

Intro anyone ?

NOTES: A '/' means the chord with a different baseline. To get the run down on A, I play the A, A/Ab at the 5th fret (f position bar chord), and then drop back to the standard A position for the A/F#, A/E.

I think the E7 falls better under the fingers played with the (hope this makes sense) 4th finger on G# (top E string) 3rd finger on D (b string) 2nd finger on B (G string) 1st finger on E (D string), and B (A string) 6th string open
