GUITAR and PEN words and music P.Townshend

from WHO ARE YOU

Only chords names for this one and quite a few are for keyboards.

 

Ab Eb7 Ab Eb7

You're alone above the street somewhere

Ab Eb7 Ab Eb7

wondrin' how you'll ever count out there

G C D C G

You can walk you can talk you can fight

C D G

but inside you've got something to write

C D C G

in your hand you hold your only friend

C D G

never spend your guitar or your pen

C D C G

your guitar or your pen

C A G

your guitar or your pen

C D C G

your guitar or your pen

D G

your guitar or your pen

 

[verse 1]

D G G/A

When you take up a pencil and sharpen it up

G/B G/C

when you're kicking the fence and still nothing will budge

G/D G/E

when the words are immobile until you sit down

G/F C/G

never feel they're worth keeping they're not easily found

C/A C/B

then you know in some strange unexplainable way

C C/D C/D

you must really have something jumping thumping fighting

D7 G G G C D

hiding away important to say

 

G G C D C G G C D [twice]

 

[verse 2]

When you sing thru the verse and you end in a scream

and you swear and you curse 'cos the rhyming ain't clean

but it suddenly comes after years of delay

you pick up your guitar you can suddenly play

when your fingers are bleeding the knuckles are white

then you can be sure you can open the door get up off the floor

tonight you have something to write

 

D G/D G/D D

When you want to complain there's no one to stop you

G D/G C/G D

when your music proclaims there's no one can top you

Eb11 Eb11 Eb/Ab Ab Eb/Ab Ab

you are wearing your heart on your jumping feet

Ebmsus4/Gb Db/Eb Eb Eb11 Eb

You've got a head start away from the street

Fm D

but is that what you want to be rich and be gone

Gm/Bb Gm Ebma7 C11 Dsus4/A

could be there's just one thing left in the end

D7/A G G C D C G G C D

your guitar and your pen

 

G G C D C G G C D [x3]

 

[verse 3]

When you sing to your mum and you hum and you croon

and she says that she'd like it 'with more of a tune'

and you smash your guitar at the end of the bed

when you stick it together start writing again

then you know that it won't be too long till you're back

to bring her some money she's calling you honey

stashed in a bloody great sack in your Cadillac

 

[Then back to opening part of song then the 'guitar and your pen' bit is done

5 times before finishing with...]

G D

never spend your guitar or your pen

 

[then piano]

G Eb7 D G Eb7 D G D G D G
