Morrissey
[Intro]
| Am     | Am     | Em     | Dsus4  |
| Am     | Am     | Em     | Dsus4  |
 
 
[Verse 1]
Am                    Em
 Once I saw the river clean
                         Am
Distant future, wait for me
                       Em
I grow pleasing to the eye
        Dsus4                Am
And the queue will queue for me
                     Em
Once I saw the river clean
                               Am
Soon the clock will strike for me
                    Em
Childish mind anticipates
         Dsus4
Grown-up mind consummates
 
 
[Instrumental]
| Am     | Am     | F      | F      |
 
 
[Verse 2]
A         Em             G
 I walked with my grandmother
       D                 A
Down a windblown Chester Road
         Em            G
With her fifty-two new pence
        D             A
For her twenty number-tens
       Em               G
And my forty-five pence too
        D       A
Demand "Metal Guru"
          Em               G
Once with hearts securely stacked
        D
Then we walked all the way back
 
 
[Instrumental]
| Am     | Am     | F      | F      |
 
 
[Verse 3]
Am                       Em
 I walked with my grandmother
                          Am
Along the groan of Talbot Road
                      Em
In the gardens by the graves
      Dsus4        Am
I can just about behave
                 Em
Arrogant and paranoid
                        Am
All around, see fathead youth
                       Em
Look into their brutal eyes
         Dsus4
But only if you want the truth
 
 
[Instrumental]
| Am     | Am     | F      | F      |
| A      | Em     | G      | D      |
| A      | Em     | G      | D      |
| A      | Em     | G      | D      |
| A      | Em     | G      | D      |
| F      | F      | D      | D      |
| F      | F      | B      | E      |
| F      | F      | D      | D      |
| F      | F      | B      | E      | A      |
 
 
[Verse 4]
A       Em            G
 Once I saw the river clean
           D              A
Scratching up the latest scheme
          Em                 G
Time will come but it hasn't yet
          D
Someone's out to get me
A         Em             G
 I walked with my grandmother
           D                 A
Cornbrook Street, where incomplete
          Em            G
She would never be again
         D
A Dublin dancer, free and young
 
 
[Outro]
| Am     | Am     | Em     | Dsus4  |
| Am     | Am     | Em     | Dsus4  | Am     |
