Subject: Lloyd Cole -She's A Girl and I'm a Man

You'll have to listen to the album to play along to get it right for awhile.
Its kind of hard to sing and play at the same time.   Words are from memory so
they might not be exact.

(Fig. 1 once for each line)
Well she did understand him so she guessed he was deep
She had never been to college and was to dumb to be
So he lead her to the altar thinkin he'd be laughin last
Now the lady in question is his better half


           D       F#m       E              D
Shes gotta be  the stupidest girl I've ever seen

           F#m   E      D
Don't care who, why or where I've been

            F#m                           Bm
She's got a right to be everything that's wrong with me

    E                                    D
But she doesn't wan't to understand that she's a girl and I'm a man
(Fig 1 again)

(Same as first verse)
He thought that woman and drinking made a man out of him
But the extent of his study left a jaded man
So when she lead him to the altar he was easily led
And when they ask him if he did, well, this is what he said


Solo over verse chords

G          Em7

Everytime I see her She gives me a new reason to be in

love      tied up in love

And when I see her she says you're not cool you're just like

me You're a stupid man Get over

here Take my stupid hand

Its alright yea yea

Fig 1. about 4 times then chorus and fade
