Am G F(bar) C D/F#
I can see very well, there’s a boat on the reef with a broken back
And I can see it very well

There’s a joke and I know it very well,
It’s one of those that I told you[D/F#] long ago
Take my word I’m a madman don’t you know

—————————————————-

[INTRO-1] 2X

—————————————————–

[Verse-3]
Once a fool had a good part in the play
If it’s so would I still be[D/F#] here today
It’s quite peculiar in a funny sort of way
They think it’s very funny everything I say

——————————————–

[Pre-Chorus]
. . . Get a load of him he’s so insane
Am C D5 F(bar)G(bar) A(bar)
Better get your coat dear it looks-like–rain

—————————————————


We’ll come again next Thursday afternoon
The inlaws hope they’ll see you very soon
But is it in your conscience that you’re after
Am C D5 F(bar) G Am(1st-position for Intro)
Another glimpse of the madman across the water

—————————————————————————

[Intro-2] Substitute [G-lick] for the harmonics: Arpeggiate the G(320XXX) as
normal, then play an E-note on the 2nd-fret D-string, then the open D-string.

—————————————————————————

over Intro-2 – gradually fade back to Intro-1

—————————————————-

[Verse-1]

————————————————

[Verse-2]
The ground’s a long way down but I need more

————————————————–

Is the nightmare black or are the windows painted
Am C D/F# F(bar) Am
Will they come again next week can my mind really take it
