SMALL BLUE THING (Suzanne Vega)
-------------------------------
[Capo up one fret.]

E5  D6(9)  Cmaj7  D6(9)    E5  D6(9)  Cmaj7  D6(9)
[intro]

E5        D6(9)   Cmaj7      D6(9)
  Today I am    a small blue thing
E5       D6(9)         Cmaj7  D6(9)
  Like a marble or an eye
        E5               D6(9)      Cmaj7      D6(9)
With my knees against my mouth, I am perfectly round
E5    D6(9)    Cmaj7  D6(9)
  I am watching you

F(add#4) G                 F(add#4)      G
  I  am  cold against your skin, you are perfectly
    F(add#4)     G                F(add#4)     G
reflected;  I am lost inside your pocket, I am lost against your
Am9            Bm7                Cmaj7      Bm7
fingers;  I am falling down the stairs, I am skipping on the
Am9             Bm7                 Cmaj7    Bm7
sidewalk;  I am thrown against the sky, I am raining down in
Am9/G         Bm7(4)/A        Am9/G  Bm7(4)/A
pieces;  I am scattering like light, scattering like
Am9/G  Bm7(4)/A        Am9/G   Bm7(4)/A   Bm7(4)/A [single note, held]
light, scattering like light

Today I am a small blue thing
Made of china, made of glass
I am cool and smooth and curious, I never blink
I am turning in your hand, turning in your hand
[4 extra bars: E5 D6(9) Cmaj7 D6(9)]

I am cold against your skin, you are perfectly
reflected;  I am lost inside your pocket, I am lost against your
fingers;  I am falling down the stairs, I am skipping on the
sidewalk;  I am thrown against the sky, I am raining down in
pieces;  I am scattering like light, scattering like
light, scattering like light

Today I am a small blue thing
Like a marble or an eye
I am cool and smooth and curious, I never blink
I am turning in your hand, turning in your
E5     D6(9)           Cmaj7   D6(9)
hand;  turning in your hand,   small blue
E5      D6(9)           Cmaj7  D6(9)
thing;  turning in your hand
E5  D6(9)           Cmaj7   D6(9)   E5.
    Turning in your hand



(You can figure out where to play these in the song.)

Since (nearly) every bar begins with a new chord, a bar begins were
a "[" is.
The bass line is not fully experienced...but maybe someone else can do
it.
Between the guit. and bass tab there are signs like "mp", "f" - which
means the volume - and at the end "rit." which means to slow down
the tempo.
I tried to put the lyrics in the right bar...but you'll see...
