"Henry Boy" (1972)

There is an uncredited tab of this on UG.  It is mine, as well. 


          E                        E/F#              E     E/F#
Well they broke your toys this morning, Henry, rode your Ford right into dust
E                     E/F#                           E E/F#
Surrounded you with strangers who you could not trust
E                           F#m  B  E  E/C#  E 
And then they had the gall
       F#m                   B            E   
To write your name up on the girl's room wall   
       C#m  B     C#m    B    C#m       B            C#m B
And send you out to Maria who spoke of babies and all
And she wanted to shoot your joy
              Bsus                                                     E  E/F#
Well it's a hard world when you're the new kid in town, ain't it, Henry Boy?


E  E/F#  E


E/F#                               E              E/F# E  E/F#
Well now the North side is for diamond studded women subtly selling their wares
E                               E/F#        E E/F#  E  E/F#
And the West side is for debutantes and would be millionaires
E                     E/F#              E  E/F#  E  E/F#
The East side is for lost boys who know their moves too well
E                               E/F#                E  E/F#   E E/F#
The South side that's for gamblers, Henry, the train stops once for hell
It's a hard world when you're forced to live out on Broadway
Bsus                                    E   E/F#          
But Henry I think you're gonna like it well


E  E/F# 


            G#m                                     A                                    C#m  B  C#m
And now the constellation she points to Gate Eleven, man that's where you got your connections
    G#m                                       A                   C#m B C#m
Whoa let me take a look inside my magic book, I don't think you're beyond my inventions
         G#m                                                          F#m            A
These doctor's appendages I'm giving you for wings, I'm sure they'll meet the occasion
     C#m  B     C#m    B    C#m       B  C#m     B                       E
I'm gonna mix you some magic, you'll be spittin' sparks and ready for the invasion


F#m          B          E                            E/F#                  E 
'Cause now the Milky Way's a trip for dippers, saw you coming a mile away
E/F#                                                                      E
In the amusement park you'll get clipped by rippers hiding behind candy canes
E/F#                                     E         E/F#  E           E/F#
In the alley you're gonna get ripped by strippers all who know your name
E                    E/F#                          E                  E/F# E E/F#
In the stalls stand out the soldier-boy kissers on leave for just a day
And Henry he can't take it, he's gonna be a submariner riding underground for the Pope
  Asus                                                E/F#  E      E/F#
Stands on the corner Broadway and Forty Second,and screams "Up 'scope"

  E  E/F# Asus B Bsus  F#m  F#m7/E G#m G#m7/F# C#m
