Shipwreck

 

           Am                            C
In a black dress and a bowler hat
            G                         
With a guitar round her neck
           Am                 C
She sang about a summer day
 G                                  Am
Darkened by a drunk ship wreck

Her voice low and filled with woe
She sang days of gone by
If she'd only known when she let it out
How things'd go awry
 
C                                G
Did you hear what came of her
 G                                 Am
The new wave rave effect
Am                     C
Shame saved future pain
             G                                   Am
Of the lucky boys she did reject
 
Walking down the city street
The people cleared a path
She looked in their eyes saw the fear arise
The fear of her wrath
 
Did you hear what came of her
The new wave rave effect
Shame saved future pain
Of the lucky boys she did reject
 
Quiet frights in lonely nights
She wished she could go back
To the days she'd paint her lips
Red in her gold compact
 
Did you hear what came of her
The new wave rave effect
Shame saved future pain
Of the lucky boys she did reject
 
In a black dress and a bowler hat
With a bullet in her neck
She lay on concrete of city street
With her guitar in a wreck

The End
