905
By The Who
>From Who Are You, 1978
written by John Entwistle ©1978 Hot Red Music

intro: synth

C             G          Am             F
Mother was an incubator, father was the contents
     C                G              F          C
Of a test tube in the ice box in the factory of birth
   C         G           Am           F
My name is 905, and I've just become alive
        C          G            F              C
I'm the newest populator of the planet we call Earth

      C         G          Am                  F
In suspended animation, my childhood passed me by
     C              G                F               C
If I speak without emotion, then you know the reason why
C                Bb           Am          F
Knowledge of the universe was fed into my mind
      C          Bb            A         Bb
As my adolescent body left its puberty behind

F            G              Am
Everything I know is what I need to know
F            G                  Am
Everything I do has been done before
      F              G
Every sentence in my head
Am           G   F
Someone else has said
        C         G          F    C
At each end of my life is an open door

{8 bars fill -- C variation}

Automatically defrosted, my manhood came on time
I became a man, I left the ice school behind
Now I'm to begin the life that I'm assigned
A life that's been used before a thousand times

  Am             G                Bb           F
I have a feeling deep inside that something is missing
         Am          G          Bb         F
It's a feeling in my soul and I can't help wishing
      Am              G               Bb       G
That one day I'll discover that we're living a lie
         C              Bb    Am          Bb
And I'll tell the whole world the reasons why
                F
But until then,

all I know is what I need to know
Everything I do has been done before
Every idea in my head
Someone else has said
At each end of my life is an open door

I got a smile from the bite of the wind
Watched the fresh fall of snow

S-sometimes at night I wake up and my body's like ice
The sound of the running wild stallion, the noise of the m-mice
And I wondered if then I could hear into all of your dreams
I realize now it was really the sound of your screams

But death always leads into life
Like the street-fighter swallows the knife
Am I so crazy to feel that it's here pre-arranged?
The music must change
It gets higher and higher
Smolderin' like leaves in the sun
Then it bursts into fire
Its rhythm grows strong
It's so new and so strange
Like bells in the clouds, then again the music must change

|D       |
 Change

[repeat intro]

Deep in the back of my mind is an unrealized sound
Every feeling I get from the street says it soon could be found
When I hear the cold lies of the pusher I know it exists
It's confirmed in the eyes of the kids emphasized with their fists

But the high has to rise from the low
Like volcanoes explode through the snow
The mosquito's sting brings a dream but the poisons derange
The music must change
For we're chewing a bone
We soar like the sparrow hawk fly, then we dropped like a stone
Like the tide and the waves growing slowly in range
Crushing mountains as old as the earth, the music must change

D5                                      F
Wide awake in the middle of the night

         G         D5
I wonder how she's feelin'

F                                 C
Is it just a trick of the light

G                 D5
Or is her ceiling peeling?

F                        F
She's sitting up in bed, shakin' her head

              G       D5
At a copy of "True Confessions"

        F                            C
Ooh, it must seem like a fairy tale

     G               D5
To a woman of her profession

[chorus]

            F->G                F->G
But was I all right? (was I all right?)

      C                         F
Did I take you to the height of ecstasy?

       F->G               F->G
Was I all right? (was I all right?)

      C                 F
Did a shadow of emotion cross your face

                                    D5
Or was it just another trick of the light?

[Bass solo: over verse chords]

[chorus]
But was I all right? (was I all right?)
Did I take you to the height of ecstasy?
Was I all right? (was I all right?)
Did a shadow of emotion cross your face
Or was it just another trick of the light?

Come on, tell me

F                           C                     Dm
What's a nice girl like you doin' in a place like this?

Bb              F                 C
They don't make girls like you no more

        Dm             Bb
And I'd like to get to know you

   G                 Bb
On closer terms than this

      G                           C
But I guess you've heard it all before

[opening riff]

D                  F
Lady of the night

          G               D
Won't you steal away with me?

F                   C
Lady of the night

          G               D
Won't you steal away with me?

    F             F
The money's lyin' on the floor, she looks at me

G                    D
Shakes her head and sighs

F
Out of time, out the door

C              G        D
Red light shinin' in my eyes

But was I all right? (was I all right?)
Did I take you to the height of ecstasy?
Was I all right? (was I all right?)
Did a shadow of emotion cross your face
All right?

But was I all right?
All right?

GUITAR and PEN  words and music P.Townshend

Only chords names for this one and quite a few are for keyboards.

Ab                 Eb7       Ab                        Eb7
You're alone above the street somewhere
Ab                        Eb7         Ab               Eb7
wondrin' how you'll ever count out there
G                  C          D      C         G
You can walk you can talk you can fight
               C             D                  G
but inside you've got something to write
                   C           D      C     G
in your hand you hold your only friend
                  C          D              G
never spend your guitar or your pen
C          D  C         G
your guitar or your pen
C          A              G
your guitar or your pen
C          D  C         G
your guitar or your pen
       D                   G
your guitar or your pen

[verse 1]
D             G                            G/A
When you take up a pencil and sharpen it up
                  G/B                                G/C
when you're kicking the fence and still nothing will budge
                    G/D                       G/E
when the words are immobile until you sit down
        G/F                                             C/G
never feel they're worth keeping they're not easily found
             C/A                                       C/B
then you know in some strange unexplainable way
               C                           C/D         C/D
you must really have something jumping thumping fighting
                 D7                G         G G C D
hiding away important to say

G G C D C G G C D [twice]

[verse 2]
When you sing thru the verse and you end in a scream
and you swear and you curse 'cos the rhyming ain't clean
but it suddenly comes after years of delay
you pick up your guitar you can suddenly play
when your fingers are bleeding the knuckles are white
then you can be sure you can open the door get up off the floor
tonight you have something to write

D                                G/D                   G/D   D
When you want to complain there's no one to stop you
G                             D/G                      C/G  D
when your music proclaims there's no one can top you
Eb11                       Eb11              Eb/Ab Ab Eb/Ab Ab
you are wearing your heart on your jumping feet
Ebmsus4/Gb                                    Db/Eb Eb Eb11 Eb
You've got a head start away from the street
Fm                                D
but is that what you want to be rich and be gone
Gm/Bb    Gm           Ebma7    C11        Dsus4/A
could be there's just one thing left in the end
D7/A                       G   G C D C G G C D
your guitar and your pen

G G C D C G G C D [x3]

[verse 3]
When you sing to your mum and you hum and you croon
and she says that she'd like it 'with more of a tune'
and you smash your guitar at the end of the bed
when you stick it together start writing again
then you know that it won't be too long till you're back
to bring her some money she's calling you honey
stashed in a bloody great sack in your Cadillac

[verse]
I took the tube back out of town, back to the rollin' pin
I felt a little like a dying clown with a streak of rin tin tin
I stretched back and I hiccupped and looked back on my busy day
Eleven hours in the tin pan, god, there's got to be another way.

[repeat chorus]
Well, who are you
             (Who are you, who who, who who)
Oh, who are you
           (Who are you, who who, who who)
Come on tell me who are you

Oh, who the fuck are you
