... or, "Standing Outside A Broken Phone Booth With Money In My Hand".

It's a very, very simple song, just the bassline, some chords, and maybe a guitar every
so often. It's mostly keyboard, however. And the sample is B.B. King going "I been
downhearted baby, ever since the day we met."

'Standing Outside A Broken Phone Booth With Money In My Hand'
Primitive Radio Gods
(O'Connor, Feather, Feather. Contains samples from "How Blue Can You Get" by Feather and

   G                                 C
   Jan lays down and wrestles in her sleep
   Moonlight spills on comic books
       Bm            C
   And superstars in magazines
     G 					     C
   An old friend calls and tells us where to meet
   Her plane takes off from Baltimore
	Bm             C
   And touches down on Bourbon Street

      G 	      C
   We sit outside and argue all night long
   About a god we've never seen
       Bm             C
   But never fails to side with me
   G                C
   Sunday comes and all the papers say
   Ma Teresa's joined the mob
   And happy with her full time job

   Do do do do doo do
      G		 C
   Am I alive or thoughts that drift away?
   Does summer come for everyone?
       Bm	    C
   Can humans do as prophets say?
	G         C
   And if I die before I learn to speak
	G                           Bm
   Can money pay for all the days I lived awake
   But half asleep?

   Do do do do doo do x 2

     G			C
   A life is time, they teach us growing up
   The seconds ticking killed us all
     Bm		     C
   A million years before the fall
	G                 C
   You ride the waves and don't ask where they go
   You swim like lions through the crest
	Bm               C
   And bathe yourself on zebra flesh

   I've been downhearted baby,
   I've been downhearted baby,
   	          Bm     C
   Ever since the day we met


As always, this is an interpretation of O'Connor's brilliant song. Corrections, btab,
are welcome.
