Black And Blue
Jim Boggia Black and Blue www.jimboggia.com Chords figured out by Todd Jasko, firstname.lastname@example.org . I left out all the leads/ornamenting, etc. They're easy to figure out. Email me if you any trouble. For the Am7 in the verses, I play this: 31220x. Dm maj7 is 1220xx. of the E7's might be E's. All the verses and choruses have the same chords, so I only them out once. Same with the progression in the verses. Intro is the same progression the verses. [Am] You seem [Am/G] surprised [Am7] to find [C] that I'm [G] human and that I can do things wrong. For my frailties your heart has no room and [Am] you go [E7] write A [F] song. [G] You take glee in [E7] making me play my [Am] faults out [D] onstage. [Dm] You can spit your [Dm maj7] venom out but [Dm7] I must hold my [G] rage. And I'm [C] [E7] feeling [F] black and [C] blue like I'm [C] [E7] beaten [F] through and [G] through. I'm [Dm] cut and [G] bruised. I'm [Dm] black and [G] blue. Would it give you any satisfaction if I said I can be mean? Would you then admit in our interactions your hands aren't quite clean? When you tell your stories that recount my every sin you always leave out the beginnings so you can look good in the ends. And I'm feeling black and blue like I'm beaten through and through. I'm cut and bruised. I'm black and blue. [E] This is the point at which [E7] I need to write a [Am] bridge for this. But I [C7] haven't done it yet. [F] It's [Fm] proving hard to [G] get. When you find the next thing that I'm lacking. Please don't tell me to my face. For my pride has taken quite a whacking. I can't stand up straight. So, take my latest failure and be sure to write it down so you can pour it out like water on me when I start to drown. And I'm feeling black and blue like I'm beaten through and through. I'm cut and bruised. I'm not like you. I'm black and blue.
