The Lonely Goth

	  		(intro) 
D  G Em7 D  G Em7 
 
 
D                  G       Em7 
Velvet pants and a big top hat 
D                       G            Em7 
It's a little hot to be dressed like that 
D                       G       Em7 
Down near the war memorial he's propped 
     C                  G  
In a big balck cape and twelve hole docs 
 
 
D  G Em7 D  G Em7 
 
 
Now he almost made his auntie faint 
When he stopped at the chemist for some black nail paint 
She just stood there hands on hips 
He said "Aunty Em it'll match my lips" 
 
 
(chorus) 
A 
 I heard his mother and his father say 
      F#m 
"What possessed the boy to dress that way?" 
    G         G/F#    Em7 
But don't you try and bring him down 
       C                G 
He's a lonely goth in a country town 
 
 
D  G Em7 D  G Em7 
 
 
Now his father's family settled here 
In another time, it was a long gone year 
He knows about them all you see 
They're buried at the local cemetery 
 
 
There's a girl in the next town that he knows 
They met at a Marilyn Manson show 
And they write letters and they swap spells 
They'll be together one day in hell 
 
 
(chorus) 
A 
 I heard his mother and his father say 
      F#m 
"What possessed the boy to dress that way?" 
    G             G/F#          Em7          
And what will the blokes at the bottom pub say 
        G             G/F#  Em7 
And the women down at her CWA? 
    G         G/F#    Em7 
But don't you try and bring him down 
       C                G 
He's a lonely goth in a country town 
 
 
D  G Em7 D  G Em7 
 
 
   F#m 
To dress like that around here you guess 
     G  
That he likes being close to death 
   A 
He doesn't like footy, he doesn't like cars 
   A 
He didn't mind Coppolla's Dracula 
 
 
One day he'll be rid of this place 
Run like mascara down a pale white face. 
He doesn't believe in a god above 
But you could never doubt his mother's love 
 
 
(chorus) 
A 
 I heard his mother and his father say 
      F#m 
"What possessed the boy to dress that way?" 
    G             G/F#          Em7          
And what will the blokes at the top pub say 
        G             G/F#  Em7          
And the women down at her CWA? 
         G      G/F#          Em7          
But it's eye of newt and it's tounge of bat 
      G            G/F#          Em7          
As he walks around town with his mum's black cat 
       G          G/F#        Em7          
And if you'd been through all he's been through 
     G          G/F#      Em7          
Then you'd turn white and you'd frown too 
         G       G/F#  Em7          
He's the bravest boy behind the frown 
     C                G            D  G Em7 
Of a lonely goth in a country town 
     C                     G            D  G Em7 
He's evoked the wrath of a country town 
         C            G            D  G Em7 
He's the only one for miles around 
 
 
F#m                G  
   It's a shearing town 
            F#m 
Or a mining town 
                       G     D 
A quite little country town 
 
 
D  means:

b|-----3-----3-
