Larry

Intro: (g#madd9) (e) (g#madd9) (e)

(b) no one comes down our (e) road
So how would they (b) know
If we had a (f#) saint here
(b) my mother said "well (e)
They could just tell" (b)
But i would not (f#) stop there
I said (e) "larry, he could be one (b)
He just sits out (f#) front
He has time to (g#m7) pray"
(e) my mother said "no (b)
I don't think so" (f#) but i believed anyway (b)

'cause i (d#m) thought that he looked like je- (eadd9#4)* sus (e)
(b) savior of our neighborhood (f#)
(d#m) if everyone could just (eadd9#4) see us (e)
They'd (b) know he was misunder- (f#) stood

Instrumental break: (g#madd9) (e) (g#madd9) (e)

(b) no one who lives in this town (e)
Could get past the sound (b)
Of larry on (f#) sundays
(b) that's when he talks to himself (e)
And hears the an- (b) gels
He says that they (f#) say
(e) "larry, you are the one (b)
Our chosen (f#) son
We're talking to you" (g#m7)
(e) my mother said "please (b)
Don't be deceived" (f#)
But i said "it could be (b) true"

'cause i (d#m) thought that he looked like je- (eadd9#4) sus (e)
(b) not that i thought that he was (f#)
When he (d#m) shot at one of our (eadd9#4) neighbors (e)
(b) and went away in hand- (f#) cuffs

Instrumental break:
(g#madd9) (e) (g#madd9) (e) (g#madd9) (e) (g#madd9) (e)

(b) no one came down our (e) road
'til larry came (b) home
'til larry made (f#) bail
(b) then he had the crews (e) from all the t.V. News (b)
And he had (f#) hate mail
And (e) larry stopped sitting out (b)
Stopped talking about (f#)
The voices he knew (g#m7)
(e) my mother said "shame (b)
How he's so afraid (f#) now
Even of (b) you"

And i (d#m) thought that he looked like je- (eadd9#4) sus (e)
Like (b) maybe he could still make us (f#) well
But he (d#m) looked out and saw (eadd9#4) strangers (e)
(b) and turned the gun on him- (f#) self

Instrumental break:
(g#madd9) (e) (g#madd9) (e) (g#madd9) (e) (g#madd9) (e)

(g#madd9) ho sanna (f#/a#) hey sanna
(b/d#) ho sanna (eadd9) hey
Sanna (b) ho sanna (eadd9) hey

(b5)

*this chord (eadd9#4) is spelled out with e, b, and d#, with an a bass.
(Almost a b major chord with a as the bass, but with no f#.)
