(Capo 4 space)

A        G            D            G       A    G
I was surprised, I was happy for a day in 1975
F#m            Em          D                 G         A   G
I was puzzled by a dream, stayed with me all day in 1995
F#m        Em             D
My brother had confessed he was gay
    G                A             G
It took the heat off me for a while
F#m                 Em
He stood up with a sailor friend
D              G               A          G (F#m - Em - A)
Made it known upon my sisters wedding day
A              G            D               G
I got married in a rush to save a kid from being deported
      A           G
Now she's in love
F#m           Em         D                  G   
I was so touched, I was moved to kick the crutches
         A              G
From my crippled friend
F#m            Em              D               G
She was not impressed that I cured her on the Sabbath
      A             G
So I went to confess
D                D/B          D/F#              D/G     
When she saw the funny side, we introduced my child bride
    A            G
To whisky and gin

The priest in the booth had a photographic memory
For all he had heard
He took all of my sins and he wrote a pocket novel called
"The State I Am In"
So I gave myself to God
There was a pregnant pause before he said ok
Now I spend my day turning tables round In Marks & Spencer's
They don't seem to mind

I gave myself to sin
I gave myself to Providence
And I've been there and back again
The state that I am in

Oh love of mine, would you condescend to help me
I am stupid and blind
Desperation is the Devil's work, it is the folly of a boys empty mind
Now I'm feeling dangerous, riding on city buses for a hobby is sad
Lead me to a living end
I promised that I'd entertain my crippled friend
My crippled friend
