Put A Penny In The Slot

Capo on 1st fret
	  		Capotraste 1 casa 



    C 
I apologise, 
F            C 
seem to have arrived, 
        Am         E              Am 
On what items in my bag from your house. 
        C 
There's cutlery, 
       F               C 
a tablecloth, some Hennessy, 
      Am           E       Am 
And a book on Presidents deceased. 
                C 
I'll have them fed-exed to you, 
         F                 C 
It was a strange thing to do, 
  Am          E         Am       
I hope we can still be friends. 
        C 
Ah, it was not me, 
            F         C 
but someone else, you see, 
Am           E         Am 
Twisting the steering reins. 


         C                   Am 
Put a penny in the slot and make an 
E                F         C 
artificial li-ii-iight shine, 
F        C         F       C 
Leave go-ooo. Mark old and line. 


        C 
I don't give advise, 
      F               C 
But be wise and think twice, 
      Am           E         Am 
Before getting involved in a game. 
              C 
Where the minority 
            F   C 
Face the majority 
          Am         E             Am 
Who are faceless and born without names. 
        C 
Was it knock synch when 
        F             C 
we came across three men, 
        Am              E              Am 
They had church candles wrapped in newspaper. 
          C 
I bought two from them, 
         F           C 
And I'll lit one for you, 
           Am                E           Am 
I hope the message made it's way down the wire. 


C                   Am 
Put a penny in the slot and make an 
E             F         C 
artificial li-ii-iight shine, 
F        C          F      C 
Leave go-ooo. Mark old and line. 


   C 
The soul of a dog, 
       F           C 
he's alive and not gone 
       Am            E      Am 
To the farm like the others said. 
      C 
A Rhodesian richback, 
        F      C 
Off the beaten track, 
        Am     E                Am 
In a furniture shop down on the quays. 
        C 
For the lonliness you foster, 
     F         C 
I suggest Paul Oster, 
   Am         E     Am 
A book called Timbuktu. 


C                   Am 
Put a penny in the slot and watch the 
E       F           C 
Drunken sailor boy dance. 
    F        C      Am 
She will not let you be 
     C  G 
Her lov-ver. 
     F         C     Am 
She goes out looking for 
    C  G 
The taxi. 
    F        C          Am 
Her phone is ringing straight to 
    C     G 
Message-minder. 
    F         C   Am 
Send out a battalion to 
 C   G 
Find her. 


C                   Am     
Put a penny in the slot and count the 
E               F      C 
Swans through a te-elescope. 
   Am             C  
I can't help from cryin' 
   F            C 
I wish you were mine. 


      C  
When I was seventeen, 
  F           C 
I followed my dream, 
   Am      E        Am 
Up into a high-rise block. 
        C  
The adventures of Augie March, 
   F        C 
By Saul Bel-low, 
     Am           E    Am 
Was all I had for company. 
   C 
At night time I'd lie 
   F          C 
In Beckingham pike, 
     Am         E    Am 
With tears like flashbulbs. 
      C 
And recall my treasure- 
F         C 
Searching days, 
       Am         E    Am 
In the rock pools as a kid. 


        C       
To the remains of 
    F      C 
The cherub plains, 
    Am            E                Am 
Or around the bonfire in Nailors? cove. 
     C 
Good company and grief 
      F         C 
Sit like a dock leaf, 
     Am        E       Am    
Sits beside a stinging nett-le. 


C                   Am 
Put a penny in the slot and make an 
E                F     C 
artificial li-ii-iight shine, 
F        C       F      C 
Leave go-ooo. My golden arm
