(ver. 1) Click to play this song!
Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds


Basically the whole song is in Cm.
I've decided to add the piano breaks and to write some bass lines... when it changes.
I hope it helps in this messy but wild track!
And... no I didn't catch Blixa's guitar parts



Bass on verse:
G-----------------------------------|
D-----------------------------------|
A--3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-1--|
E-----------------------------------|



Verse 1 (on all verses, play the bass and the piano strumms the C note)
Cm
I wanna tell you about a girl
You know, she lives in room 29
Why that's the one right up top a mine




Verse 2
Cm
Oh I hear her walking
Walking barefoot cross the floor-boards
All through this lonesome night
I hear her crying too.
Hot tears come splashing down
Leaking through the cracks,
Down upon my face.
Catch'em in my mouth!
Catch'em in my mouth!
Catch'em in my mouth!
Ah catch'em in my mouth!
Ah Walk and cry! Walk and cry!
Ah Walk and cry! Ah Walk and cry!

Verse 3
Cm
I read her diary on her sheets
Scrutinizing every little bit of dirt
Tore out a page a,nd stuff it inside my shirt
I fled outta the window,
And shinning it down the vine
Outta her nightmare into mine!
Mine! Mine!

Verse 4

She's wearing those blue stockins I bet
And standing like this with my ear to the ceiling
Listen I know it must sound absurd
But I can hear the most melancholy sound I ever heard
Walk and cry! Walk and cry!

Verse 5
Cm
Ah tell me why. Ah tell me why.
Oh Why, why, why?
O tell me why and don't tell me lie!
Why the ceiling still shakes, shake, shakes, shakes!
And all the fixtures turn to serpents and snakes?



Verse 6
Cm
This desire to possess her is a wound
And it's nagging at me like a shrew
But I know, that to possess her
Is therefore not to desire her.
Oh oh oh then ya know, that little girl 
Would just have to go! Go! Go!
