Lady Di And I
I've been playing guitar for 3 months and this is my first attempt to figure out the chords to a song. The song as it's written below comes from the Joan Baez Live Europe '83 album. If you have any questions or suggestions, please email me at: allison+guitar at allisonshapira dot com A7 G Wake me with kisses in the afternoon E Am The butler knows any time you arrive is never too soon D G He knows just where you are by the sound of your car F C E He'll be waiting there by the spiral stair A7 G You could drive me crazy with your unkempt hair E Am You don't know what a comb is and frankly, I don't really care D G 'Cause you're fresh and you're wild and you make the butler smile F C By bringing me flowers like meteor showers D E Treating me like a queen, though I'm only nineteen F C Which reminds me of something that I've recently seen Bb F It was a look in the eye of Lady Di C A As she stood on the balcony knowing the last fantasy of the century G Was in her long white veil E Am Maybe she would rather have you than the Prince of Wales D G And all the jewels and the crown and all the villages and towns F C E That line the sea of the monarchy A7 G And while I cut the roses, what about Lady Di? E Am She's a child of the 80's just like you and like I D G Think of all of the things that she'll never do F C E See a rock and roll show, get a heart-shaped tattoo A7 G Look at all the music that I make with you E Am Let's take a walk on the wild side, baby, I'm in love with you D G I will leave my Dior by the cabinet door F C And I'll leave my bouquet on the breakfast tray F C E Let's go for a sail just like the Prince of Wales A7 G And did he ever love her in the afternoon? E Am Was the kiss that she gave him in public just a little too soon? Bb F There's a tear in the eye of Lady Di C As she looks from the balcony knowing the last fantasy of the A G Century is probably a lie E Am My heart goes out to you, Princess, lovely Lady Di D G 'Cause for all that it seems, here I stand in my jeans F C For whatever it means, it is I who am queen.
