[Harp Intro]

G G/F# Em  C Bm
G G/F# Em  C Bm


[Verse 1]

G                          G/F#         
Somewhere in the south of Spain
Em                                           C
Sammy, still sixteen, goes with his uncle for a ride
         Bm
The sun is high


[Verse 2]

G                  G/F# 
Sailing through the city
Em
For to see the sights and talking sex
                C
Sammy's sitting tall
          Bm
The sun is high


[Verse 3]

G                         G/F# 
His uncle brings him to a brothel
Em
Being big he buys a drink
C
Rum and coke
              Bm
Don't taste too bad


[Verse 4]

G                         G/F# 
Having brought him to the brink
Em
His uncle leaves him with his drink
       C
Rum and coke
               Bm
Don't taste too bad


[Bridge 1]

Em
The girls all gather in a group
                       G
And give Sammy boy the eye
Em
And stare at him seductively
                   G
And try to make him buy


[Verse 5]

G                         G/F#     
So choosing one that's younger
Em
Better looking than the rest
                   C              Bm
Sammy speaks no Spanish but she understands


[Verse 6]

G                         G/F#  
They go upstairs to buy the room
Em
She wants her money in advance
                   C              Bm
Sammy speaks no Spanish but he understands


[Verse 7]

G                                   G/F#     
And lying on her back upon the bed she beckons
Em                 C
Sammy won't lie down yet
           Bm
He wants her nude


[Verse 8]

G                      G/F#
Speaking Spanish she refuses him
            Em
At last, afraid of losing him,
                          C
She takes off all her clothes
            Bm
He wants her nude


[Bridge 2]

Em                                               G
Her hands upon her heart can hardly hide the horrid scars
Em                                                    G
From her shoulder to her waist, her skin is leathery and hard


[Verse 9]

G                     G/F#
She pantomimes an accident
       Em
A car, a fire
           C
Not so long ago
           Bm
His eyes are wide


[Verse 10]

G                             G/F#
She moves to put her clothes back on
            Em
But he won't let her go
            C
He lies her down
         Bm
His eyes are wide


[Verse 11]

G                    G/F#
And lightly, like a Lover
                   Em                         C
Sammy lets his lips caress the leather of her breast
          Bm
His brain is numb


[Verse 12]

G                      G/F#
Moved by some far distant mind
                       Em
He makes himself her bride-groom
                    C
Sammy's hardly there at all
            Bm
His brain is numb


[Bridge 3]

Em
She moves to take him in now
                             G
But her hand finds him still slack
Em
So she sucks to make him hard
                           G
And then again lies on her back


[Verse 13]

G                         G/F#                    Em
And Sammy does the deed to silent screaming in his skull
                 C
The scars surround him
         Bm
Is this all real?


[Verse 14]

G                         G/F#
Schizophrenic, Sammy sees himself
Em                      C
Outside his body and his brain
         Bm
Is this all real?


[Verse 15]

G                     G/F#              Em
And back at the hotel he has to heal himself
                    C
But all he does is shake
               Bm
And shake some more


[Verse 16]

G                     G/F#        Em
Without the grace of tears or sickness
                              C
Sammy sucks it all inside and shakes
             Bm
And shakes some more


[Harp Outro]

G G/F# Em  C Bm
G G/F# Em  C Bm
