...THEM HEAVY PEOPLE... by Kate Bush
-----------------------.............

*from 'The Kick Inside' (1978)*


*CAPO 1st FRET*

(Original Key: G#)


Intro:

G            Dm7   G           Dm7
 Rolling the ball, rolling the ball,
G            Dm7      C
 Rolling the ball, to me.
G            Dm7   G           Dm7
 Rolling the ball, rolling the ball,
G            Dm7      C
 Rolling the ball, to me.

Verse 1:

C             G           F
 They arrived at an incon-venient time;
C      G           F
 I was hiding in a room in my mind.
C             G/B     G  D       A/C#   A
 They made me look at my-self; I saw it well.
F             Em7           A
 I'd shut the people out of my life.

Verse 2:

C         G              F
 So now I take the oppor-tunities;
C          G         F
 Wonderful teachers, ready to teach me.
C            G/B   G    D          A/C# A
 I must work on my mind, for now I rea -lise;
F      G          Em7          A
 Every-one of us, has a Heaven inside.

Chorus 1:

G           F          C       Dm
 Them heavy people hit me in a soft spot,
G           F            Dm
 Them heavy people, help me.
G           F          C       Dm
 Them heavy people hit me in a soft spot.

Bridge 1:

G            Dm7   G           Dm7
 Rolling the ball, rolling the ball,
G            Dm7      C
 Rolling the ball, to me.
G            Dm7   G           Dm7
 Rolling the ball, rolling the ball,
G            Dm7      C
 Rolling the ball, to me.

Verse 3:

C          G                F
 They open doorways, that I thought were shut for good.
C             G         F
 They read me Gurdjieff and Jesu.
C              G/B   G  D           A/C#     A
 They build up my bo-dy; break me e-motional-ly.
F            G           Em7               A
 It's nearly killing me; but what a lovely feeling!

Verse 4:

C           G               F
 I love the whirling of the dervishes,
C           G         F
 I love the beauty or rare innocence.
C                  G/B     G
 You don't need no crystal ball;
D                 A/C#  A
 Don't fall for a magic wand.
F          G           Em7            A
 We humans got it all; we perform the miracles.

Chorus 2:

G           F          C       Dm
 Them heavy people hit me in a soft spot,
G           F            Dm
 Them heavy people, help me.
G           F          C       Dm
 Them heavy people hit me in a soft spot.

Coda:

G             Dm7          G            Dm7
 Rolling the, rolling the, rolling the, rolling the...

G           F          C       Dm
 Them heavy people hit me in a soft spot,
G           F            Dm
 Them heavy people, help me.
G           F          C       Dm
 Them heavy people hit me in a soft spot.

G             Dm7          G            Dm7
 Rolling the, rolling the, rolling the, rolling the...

G           F          C       Dm
 Them heavy people hit me in a soft spot,
G           F            Dm
 Them heavy people, help me.
G           F          C       Dm
 Them heavy people hit me in a soft spot.
