         C                    G
He had a stroke at the age of 24
              F                   Am
It could have been a brilliant career
         C          G               F
Painting lines in a school that was too well known
         C            G              F
Painting lines with a friend who had gone before
                        C
She challenged everyone to a fight
        F/C    C          G
But the people all backed down
         F/C     C      G
And they ran her out of town
          F/C       C         G
Cause she drank and swore and spoke
       F/C      C       G
Out of turn she was the village joke


         C                    G
She had a stroke at the age of 24
              F                   Am
It could have been a brilliant career
         C          G               F
Getting clients to finance her strategies
         C          G               F
Filling time in on Safeways on Saturday
                        C
She wears the clothes of an emperor
        F/C    C          G
But her paintings are a sham
        F/C    C          G
and they're going for a grand
        F/C    C          G
When the dealers come to view
        F/C    C          G
Do they ever see the real you?


         C                    G
He had a stroke at the age of 24
              F                   Am
It could have been a brilliant career
         C          G               F
Selling lies to the boys with the old Dansettes
         C          G               F
Pulling the wool, playing the fool, it's no wonder that
                        C
He is dribbling spit tonight
        F/C    C          G
And the one he sent away
        F/C    C          G
Was the only one who stayed
        F/C    C          G
With a spoon and a decent book
        F/C    C          G
You can tell by the way she looks
        F/C    C          G
She is sorry and resignes
        F/C    C          G
As he wets himself for the final time
