                ...SWEET GENE VINCENT... by Ian Dury & The Blockheads
------------------------.............................

*from 'New Boots and Panties!' (1977)*


Intro:

(Spoken):

                F
Blue Gene baby...

F, Dm (x2)

F                         Dm
 Skinny white sailor, the chances were slender,
    F                    Dm
The beauties were brief.
        F                             Dm
Shall I mourn your decline, with some Thunderbird wine,
            F            Dm
And a black hankercheif?

            F             Bb
I miss your sad, Virginia whisper.
           G7                    C      C+
I miss the voice, that called my heart.

Bb     Am   Dm
 Sweet Gene Vincent,
Bb         Am      Gm
 Young and old and gone,
C      A7   Dm
 Sweet Gene Vincent.

(n.C)
 Who, who, who slapped John?

Interlude:

(Faster Tempo):

G, D, G

Break:

G (n.C)
 White face, black shirt, white socks, black shoes.
Black hair, white Strat, bled white, died black.

Verse 1:

G      C    G
 Sweet Gene Vincent,
        C                 G      D
Let the blue cats roll to-night;
       G        C            G     C
At the sock hop ball, in the union hall,
          G      D        G
Where the bop is their de-light.

Verse 2:

          G           C               G
Here come duck-tailed Danny, dragging Uncanny Annie,
          C                   G     D
She's the one with the flying feet.
        G         C            G      C
You can break the peace, daddy sickle grease,
    G       D        G
The beat is reet com-plete.

Bridge 1:

        C
And you jump back honey in the dungerees,
      G                  G7
Tight sweater and a pony tail;
         C
Will you guess her age, when she comes back stage?
    A7                  D7     C#7
The hoodlums bite their nails.

Solo:

C, G  G7, C  D7  G

Break:

G (n.C)
 Black gloves, white frost, black crepe, white lead.
White sheet, black knight, jet black, dead white.

Verse 3:

G      C    G
 Sweet Gene Vincent,
        C            G    D
There's one in every town,
        G     C                 G         C
And the Devil drives, 'till the hearse ar-rives,
        G        D      G
And you lay that pistol down.

Verse 4:

G      C    G
 Sweet Gene Vincent,
        C               G     D
There's nowhere left to hide.
     G    C        G        C
With lazy skin and ash-tray eyes;
  G     D     G
A perfo-rated pride.

Solo:

D  C (x2)

Verse 5:

               G     C              G
So farewell ma-demoi-selle, Knicker-bocker Hotel,
     C             G     D
Fare-well to money owed.
              G         C              G         C
But when your leg still hurts, and you need more shirts,
           G        D      G
You got to get back on the road.
