BLUE TELESCOPE - John Hiatt
---------------------------

 +   +   +   +       +   +   +   +               (Acoustic enters
|Csus4 C     Csus2 C|Csus4 C     Csus2  | x4     after 2nd time)

I've got a blue telescope, I'm looking at the world tonight
Through a blue telescope; I wish I may, I wish I might
F                                              Csus4 etc
 Not see what I see - sheet metal on sheets of ice
                G                                     Csus4 etc
Looking through this blue telescope down a moonstruck road tonight

Blue breath on my windshield, I came to a frozen place
She shivered when I said goodbye - I wish I didn't have to face
Her in that rear-view mirror, though she lives in the heart of me
Looking through this blue telescope
I guess she'll always be a star to me

G/B Am    Em      F        C
      The heavens vast and wide
G/B Am     Em   F        G
      Wait to escort the bride
    Am    Em        F       C
      She lifts her wedding veil
G/B Am    Em       F               G
      Her breath a lonesome vapour trail

 (Same chords as verse)

I got this blue telescope - I'm looking for her tonight
Through a blue telescope; tell me, why must the blue angels fight?
Taking one last shot at heaven while they slip stream through paradise
Looking through this blue telescope down a moonstruck road tonight
I'm looking through this blue telescope down a moonstruck road tonight

I've got a blue telescope

Chords used: C-x3201x, Csus4-x3301, Csus2-x3001x, G-320033,
             G/B-x20033, Am-x02210, Em-022000

NB This becomes much easier to sing (for my voice anyway), if you play
it in Bb - the riff thingy works  in  G  too,  so you can play it in G
with a capo on the third fret. No I won't transpose all the chords for
you, you lazy swine...
Enjoy!
