Frank Black and the Catholics
Song: Velvety
Album: Devil's Workshop

[INTRO]

B*  E   B   B*   A   B  (2x)

            B                   E       B
 Out on the Eisenhower, well, I lost my speed
        G#                    F#          E
 Just a little bit south of a town called Weed 
B                        E      B
 I heard her voice and I had to stop 
     G#                   F#       E
 She called me on to that mountain top 
       B                     E     B
 I'm a poor soul lost in the shady trees 
       G#                 F#        E
 I was going to die I was going to freeze 
      F#          G#m
 When she touched me 
F#            B   E   A   D
 She was velvety 
         F#                                        B   E  A   D
 She's a cat of a creature, don't care, she's Velvety 
               F#               B*  E   B   B*   A   B
 She makes the strangest sounds 

            B                   E       B
 She was an island girl of the ancient line 
          G#                    F#        E
 When the whole damn thing sank into the brine 
 B                   E        B
 Her true lover from her was torn 
G#                   F#    E
 She packed it up to Californ' 
      F#      G#m
 Then she met me 
F#          B   E   A  D
 She's Velvety 
         F#                                         B   E   A  D
 She's a cat of a creature, don't care, she's Velvety 
               F#               B*  E   B   B*   A   B
 She makes the strangest sounds 

[SOLO]

F#  G#m   E   B

F#  G#m

            B                   E       B
 Out on the Eisenhower, well, I lost my speed
        G#                     F#          E
 Just a little bit south of a town called Weed 
       F#   G#m       
 I met Velvety 
F#        B   E  A  D
 My Velvety 
   F#                                     B   E   A   D
 I like that lemur I lick it that's Velvety 
             F#      
 She makes a pretty sound 

[OUTRO]

B*  E   B   B*   A   B  (2x)


*on this 'B' Frank does a sliding thing in from an A barre chord. 

and for the G#, it might be minor during the verses but it doesn't
seem like it. it's almost as if it could swing both ways.

a little insiders info... or not, maybe everyone already knows this...
This was a pixies b-side (an instrumental) and Frank originally wrote
this song when he was about 15.
