Poison Arrow

	  		?Poison Arrow? performed by ABC Copyright  1982  
Harmonic Transcription by Tyler Burns 2008  

Verse Key: E Minor  

Verse 1  

Em    
If I were to say to you  
D/A                   Bm  
"Can you keep a secret?"  
Em  
Would you know just what to do  
D/A            Bm  
Or where to keep it?  
Em  
Then I say"I love you"  
      D/A       Bm  
And foul the situation  
 Em  
"Hey girl I thought we were   
      D/A   Bm  
The right combination".  

Pre-Chorus 1 & 2  

G  
Who broke my heart?  
G/F#  
You did, you did  
Em7  
Bow to the target,  
          D/A  
Blame Cupid, Cupid  
G/B  
You think you're smart  
D                   D#dim  
Stupid, Stupid.  

Chorus  

Em                                                 D/A        Bm  
Shoot that poison arrow through my hea-------rt  
Em                                                 D/A        Bm  
Shoot that poison arrow  
(repeat)  

Verse 2  
     Em  
No rhythm in cymbals  
     D/A        Bm  
No tempo in drums  
Em  
Love on arrival  
       D/A                   Bm  
She comes when she comes  
Em  
Right on the target   
      D/A            Bm  
But wide of the mark  
        Em  
What I thought was fire  
       D/A       Bm  
Was only the spark  
      Em                       D/A     Bm  
The sweetest melody   
        Em                 D/A        Bm  
Is an unheard refrain  
     Em                    D/A       Bm  
So lower your sights,  
              Em   
Yeah but raise your aim  
D/A           Bm  
Raise your aim  

Bridge  

Em  
I thought you loved me but it seems you don't care  
I care enough to know I can never love you  


Pre-Chorus 3  

G  
Who broke my heart?  
G/F#  
You did, you did  
Em7  
Bow to the target,  
          D/A  
Blame Cupid, Cupid  
G/B  
You think you're smart  
D                   D#dim  
Stupid, Stupid.  
G/B  
Right from the start  
                  D                       D#dim  
When you knew we would part
