CINDY OF A THOUSAND LIVES - written by Billy Braggg

(Tabbed by Jake Trostle)

Blue velvet America
Bm                  G
Half glimpsed in the headlights between the trees
Who punctured the beauty
      Em                     G
And invited monsters such as these
The pig faced boy, the corrupted clown
Em                         G              D
The grotesque figure who never comes into town


((D         F  Em)))) x2


Something broken, something stained
Bm                        G
Something waiting for the worms to claim
And you can never go there again
Em                        G
Except in nightmares
The voyeur who dares not come near
Em                 G                       D
Knows excitement is merely the beginning of fear

((D           F   Em))

BRIDGE II-------------------------------

((A     E7      A       E))   x3

((D         D          Dm))

((Em        G           D))   x2


My shadow came this morning
Bm             G               D
And left some candy in my (ass) shoe
They're always watching me
Em                    G
Watching the things I do
Cindy of a thousand lives
Em          G                          D
Cindy of the Stepford Wha-aha-aha-aha-ives

I've looked at all the photographs
F                 Em             D
But Cindy, which one of them was you?


it's right enough
this is a very inspiring song written by a very underrated musician.
Keep rockin n' lovin'
