Good Fortune -  'Stories from the City, Stories from the Sea'
Written by P J Harvey, published by Universal Island Records Ltd 2000.

First Draft: Any improvements or comments, please e-mail me - I've concentrated mostly on the chords here.  On this version she plays for a while with quite a clean sound, then adds in some overdrive.

GOOD FORTUNE
STORIES FROM THE CITY, STORIES FROM THE SEA

Intro	[A] [G] [A] [G] [A] [G] [A] [G]

Verse

[A] Threw my [G] bad fortune
[A] Off the [G] top of 
[A] A tall [G] building
[A] But I'd rather have [G] done it with [C] you [F] [C] [F]

[A] Your [G] boy's smile 
[A] Five in the [G] morning
[A] Looked in [G]-to your eyes
[A] And I was [G] really in [C] love [F] [C] [F]

[A] In [G] Chinatown
[A] Hung [G]-over
[A] You [G] showed me 
[A] Just [G] what I could do

[A] Talk [G]-ing about
[A] Time [G] travel
[A] And the [G] meaning
[A] And just [G] what it was [C] worth [F] [C] [F]

Chorus
	 A		      Bm		   Cm		        Dm
E -----5----------------7---------------8---------------10------------I

D------7----------------9--------------10---------------12------------I
A------7----------------9--------------10---------------12------------I
E------5----------------7---------------8---------------10------------I
And I		   feel like 	some bird of 	  Paradise
My bad  	   fortune    	slipping            away
And I 	   feel the  	innocence 	        of a child
[C] Everybody's got [D] something good to [A] say

Back into Intro 

Verse 

Things I once thought 
Unbelievable
In my life
Have all taken place

When we walked through 
Little Italy
I saw my reflection 
Come right off your face

I paint pictures
To remember
You're too beautiful
To put into words

Like a gypsy
You dance in cirxles
All around me
And all over the world

Chorus

Outtro  [keep playing A and G, do not resolve with F and C as before]

So I take my 
Good fortune
And I fantasize
Of our leaving  

Like some modern-day
Gypsy landslide
Like some modern-day Bonnie and Clyde
On the run again 

{to fadeÉ}
