          Black Cow - Steely Dan
        --------------------------


                From the album AJA


                                 Arranged by Howard Wright
                                 H.Wright@astro.cf.ac.uk


                                 Helped with lyrics by Richard Kunert

VERSE 1:
---------

       C9
In the corner  of my eye     I saw you in Rudy's  you were very high


A7#9     C/D                  E7#9                    Bb/Eb
You were high       it was a  crying  disgrace   (They saw your face)


       C9
On the counter  by your  keys  was  a book of numbers and your remedies


A7#9     C/D               E7#9
One of these   surely will  screen out the sorrow


    Bb/Eb           D/E
But where are you tomorrow


CHORUS:
--------

        Amaj7                   G/A                       C/D (2)        Amaj7
I can't cry anymore   while you run  around    (while you run around)


Gmaj7   F#m7                 C#m/E    Eb7               D/E (2)   Aadd2/C#
Break away      just when it seems so clear  that it's  over      now


           F#m7 (2) E     Dmaj7          C/D (2)                  Eb/F
Drink your big      black cow    and get out of here


VERSE 2
--------

Bb9    B9   C9
  Down  to Green street there you go....

(The rest is as for verse 1)

 ....lookin' so outrageous and they tell you so

 You should know how all the pro's play the game

 (You change your name)

 Like a ganster on the run

 You will stagger homeward to your precious one

 I'm the one who must make everything right

 Talk it out till daylight

CHORUS 2
---------

I don't care anymore why you run around   (why you run around)

Break away , just when it seems so clear that it's over now

Drink your big black cow and get out of here


INSTRUMENTAL BIT :
-------------------

 G9                            A9

 Eb/Bb  C6/9    Bb7sus4

 D9                            E9

 Bb/F  G/A (2)  Eb/F           D/E

LAST CHORUS
------------
This last chorus is the same as the others except for the last bit which goes :


           F#m7 (2) E     Dmaj7          Amaj7             G/A
Drink your big      black cow    and get out of here


C/D (2)      Amaj7    G 6/9

Amaj7 (2)  G/A      C/D (2)     Amaj7 (2)   G 6/9    (Repeat this line to fade)


Chord shapes :
--------------

Don't be put off beacause there are a lot of shapes - there are some unusual
chords, but quite A few are really duplicates (E.G Bb9,B9,C9) and some chords
have two shapes to choose from (C/D,D/E)
