Capo on 3rd fret
  		Killing of Georgie (Part One and Part Two) (1976) 
Rod Stewart 
Album: A Night on the Town 

Tuning:  
 

Intro: G Dsus4 C G 

G 
In these days of changing ways 
Dsus4 
So called liberated days 
  C                                    G 
A story comes to mind of a friend of mine 

G 
Georgie boy, was gay I guess 
Dsus4 
Nothin' more or nothin' less 
    C                    G 
The kindest guy I ever knew 

G 
His mother's tears fell in vain 
Dsus4 
The afternoon George tried to explain 
     C                             G 
That he needed love like all the rest 

G  
Pa said, there must be a mistake 
Dsus4 
How can my son not be straight 
  C                               G 
After all I've said and done for him 

(Instrumental G Dsus4 C G) 

G  
Leavin' home on a Greyhound bus 
Dsus4 
Cast out by the ones he loves 
   C                            G 
A victim of these gay days it seems 

G 
Georgie went to New York town 
Dsus4 
Where he quickly settled down 
     C                                        G 
And soon became the toast of the great white way 

G 
Accepted by Manhattan's elite 
Dsus4 
In all the places that were chic 
    C                           G 
No party was complete without George 

G 
Along the boulevards he'd cruise 
Dsus4 
And all the old queens blew a fuse 
C                       G 
Everybody loved Georgie boy 

G 
The last time I saw George alive 
Dsus4 
Was in the summer of seventy-five 
    C                               G 
He said he was in love, I said I'm pleased 

G 
George attended the opening night 
Dsus4 
Of another Broadway hype 
   C                                G 
But split before the final curtain fell 

G 
Deciding to take a short cut home 
Dsus4 
Arm in arm they meant no wrong 
   C                             G 
A gentle breeze blew down Fifth Avenue 

G 
Out of a darkened side street came 
Dsus4 
A New Jersey gang with just one aim 
   C                         G 
To roll some innocent passer-by 

G 
There ensued a fearful fight 
Dsus4 
Screams rang out in the night 
 C                                   G 
Georgie's head hit a sidewalk cornerstone 

G 
A leather kid, a switchblade knife 
Dsus4 
He did not intend to take his life 
        C                                      G 
He just pushed his luck a little too far that night 

G 
The sight of blood dispersed the gang 
Dsus4 
A crowd gathered, the police came 
   C                                       G 
An ambulance screamed to a halt on Fifty-third and Third 

G 
Georgie's life ended there 
Dsus4 
But I ask, who really cares? 
C                             G 
George once said to me and I quote 

G 
He said, never wait or hesitate 
Dsus4 
Get in kid before it's too late 
 C                          G 
You may never get another chance 

 G                            
'Cause youth's a mask but it don't last 
Dsus4 
Live it long and live it fast 
 C                       G 
Georgie was a friend of mine 

*Instrumental & Whistle*  (G Dsus4 C G) x2 

C           F    G          C 
Oh, Georgie stay, don't go away 
C               F   G                     C 
Georgie please stay, you take our breath away 
 C  F  G  C     A    B  E  Am E C B  D   E   A   
Oh, Georgie stay, don't go away 
D         E             E                     D 
Georgie please stay, you take our breath away 
D            E         E        D 
Oh, Georgie stay, don't go away 
D                   E            E                    D          
Georgie, Georgie please stay, you take our breath away
