How Many Friends

By The Who

>From Who By Numbers, 1975

Written by Pete Townshend



transcribed by



Capo on 3


F Gm Eb Bb Gm7 F


F Gm

I'm feelin' so good right now

Eb Bb Gm7 F

There's a handsome boy tells me how I changed his past


He buys me a brandy

Eb Bb Gm7 F

Or could it be he's really just after my ass?


He likes the clothes I wear

Eb Bb Gm7 F

He says he likes a man to dress in season

Gm Eb Bb

But no one else ever stares, he's being so kind

Gm7 C-->

What's the reason?




C G Am F

How many friends have I really got?


You can count 'em on one hand

C G Am F G

How many friends have I really got?

C G Am F

How many friends have I really got?

Bb F Bb F Bb F/A Gm Gm7 C

That love me, that want me, that'll take me as I am?


Suddenly it's a silver screen

And a face so beautiful that I have to cry out

Everybody hears me

Well, I look like a fool, now, if I try and I shy out

She knows all of my friends

But it's nice to find a woman who'll stay on late

But now I think I've reached the end

I wonder in the dead of night, how do I rate?


[repeat chorus]



Cm Cm/Bb

It's all like a dream you know

Bb F

When you're still up early in the morning

Gm F Eb

And you all sit together to watch the sun come through

Cm Cm/Bb

But things don't look so good


When you could use a bit of warning

Fm C/G G

Then you know that no one will ever speak the truth about you.


[repeat chorus]


When I first signed the contract, it was more than a handshake then

I know it still is, but there's a plain fact

We talk so much shit behind each other's backs, I get the willies

People know nothing about their own soft guts

So how come they can sum us up

Without suffering all the hype we've known

How come they bum us up


[repeat chorus]
