The Art Teacher by Rufus Wainwright

There I was in uniform (Em, B)
Looking at, the art - teacher (Dm, Esus4, E7)
I was, just a girl then (C, G)
Never have I, loved, since then (C, Bb, Am, G)

He was not that much older than I was (he had) (Em, B)
Taken our class to the Metropolitan Museum (Dm, Esus4, E7)
He asked us what our favorite work of art was (C, G)
And never could I tell him, it was him (C, Bb, Am, G)
Oh I wish I could tell him . . . (C)
Oh I wish I could have told him (G) [hold 2-extra measures]

I looked at the Reubens and Rembrandts (Em, B)
I liked the John Singer Sergeants (Dm, Esus4, E7)
He told me he liked Turner (C, G)
Never have I, turned since then (C, Bb, Am, G)
No never have I turned to any other man (C, G) [solo over verse]

Here I am in this uniformish pantsuit sort of thing (Em, B)
Thinking of the art teacher (F, Esus4, E7, hold 3 measures)
I was just a girl then (C, G)
Never have I, loved since then (C, Bb, Am, G)
No never have I loved - any other man (C, G)
