                NEW THING NOW 
Written and performed by Shawn Colvin
Capo 1
Note: I couldn't find this ANYWHERE, so I decided to figure it out myself. But I am not a
very good at finger picking, so here are just the chords. Listen to the album to get the
rhythm right.  

Intro: G.... D-G
      G                         C
This is your new thing now
                 G
Naked as a rose
C                     G
Everything exposed
            Am    D - G
But not quite
      G                        C
This is your new thing now
                          G 
Cards out on the table
C                         G
A genius with no label
             Am          C
But not quite, not quite
D                                         C
God, I swear it's good to be back home
D                                          C
Waiting for the newest Rolling Stone
D                                        C
All the other girls are still at war
D                              C
The best and worst of 1994
         Em                               C
Sometimes I see the half and not the whole
         Em                                   C
Sometimes I see the face and not the soul
         Em                                   C
Sometimes I think this world has no part
       Em                           C             
For anyone who every had a heart
D         G                    C
This is your new thing now
                                  G
And it looks so good in print
          C                   G
Just a poet and her pimps
             Am
But not quite
D      G                    C
This your new thing now
                              G
A prom dress and a sneer

C                          G
The woman of the year
             Am          C
But not quite, not quite
 D                                               C
Gee, it's good to see a dream come true
D                                            C
People smile and bless all over you
D                                        C
Mixing up those latest junkie-isms
D                                        C
With all the pretty terms of religion
      Em                                        C
And don't you love the leader of the band
 Em                                      C
Equal parts Butt-head and Peter Pan
 Em                               C
All the other kids are sad again
 Em                                   C
A legend's not a legend 'til it ends
D         G                    C
This is your new thing now
                                            G
And it makes the whole world spin
          C                   G
It's at least as old as sin
             Am
But not quite
D         G                    C
This is your new thing now
                                    G
And now you're turning grinning
      C                    G
But maybe no one listening
                       C                  G                     Am
And you might lose it all my darling, yes you might
D         G                    C
This is your new thing now
                                          G
And it feels so good to doubt you
C                                      G
I could almost live without you
             Am     C        
But not quite             
fade out with D, C, D, C.... (repeating "not quite" several times)

Enjoy!
