Artist: Blind Melon
Song: Candy Says
Album: Changes (single)
Trancribed by: Michael MacMillan

This is a great song originally recorded by the velvet underground and written by the great
Lou Reed. It's a simple song. Also, I'm not sure about the end of the chorus and if I am
mistaken, someone please correct me. Any more Blind Melon tabs would also be appreciated.

F      G   F                Am
Candy says, oh I've come to hate my body

F            F           G             (alternate G and Gsus4)
And all that it requires in this world.

F     G            F           Am              F
Candy says, oooohhh, I need to know completely

           F                G          (alt)   
What other souls discreetly talk about.

F         F                  G    (alt)
I'm gonna watch the bluebird fly,

Over my shoulder.

F             F                 G  (alt)
And I'm gonna watch him pass me by,

When I'm older.

F                 F
What do you think I'd see,

G                         F
If I could walk away from me?

Verse II:
Same chords as above.

Candy says, ooohhh, I hate the quiet places
That cause the smallest taste of what will be. (that's what they told me)
Candy says, ooohh, I hate the big decisions
that cause the endless revisions in my mind.
(that's why I'm doing fine)


Solo                 F  G  F  Am  F  F  G


That's it. Again it's a great song. Have fun.
