...THE SAXOPHONE SONG... by Kate Bush
------------------------.............

*from 'The Kick Inside' (1978)*


Intro:

Dm  Am

Verse 1:

Dm                   Am          A#   F/A     Dm
 You'll find me in a Berlin bar, in a corner, brooding.
Dm               Am             A#       F/A          G
 You know that I go very quiet, when I'm listening to you.
        Dm/G                 Dm            Dm/G                 D    G/D
There's something special in-deed, there's something special in-deed.

Chorus 1:

D                  G
 In all the places where I've seen you shine, boy,
D                       G                         Em
 There's something very real in how I feel, honey.
        C   G       Em Bm
It's in me, it's in me-e.
                      Am
And you know it's for real.

F                         (Am)
 Tuning in on your... saxo-phone.

Break:

Am  F, Dm (x3)

F                 E7     F#sus4 F#  Faug  A7
 Doo-bee, doo-bee-doo... ooh   -ooh.

Interlude:

Dm

Verse 2:

Dm          Am                A#       F/A  Dm
 The candle burning over your shoulder,     is throwing;
Dm       Am                   A#      F/A     G
 Shadows from your saxophone; a surly lady in tremor.
    Dm/G                      Dm            Dm/G              Dm
The stars that climb from her bowels, those stars make towers on vowels.

Chorus 2:

D                       G
 You'll never see, that you had all of me,
D                           G
 You'll never know the poet-ry you've stirred in me.
D                      G
 Of all the stars I've seen, that shine so brightly,
D                     G                          Em
 I've never known, or felt in myself, so rightly.
        C   G       Em Bm
It's in me, it's in me-e.
                      Am
And you know it's for real.

F                         (Am)
 Tuning in on your... saxo-phone.

Break:

Am  F, Dm (x3)

F                 E7     F#sus4 F#  Faug  A7
 Doo-bee, doo-bee-doo... ooh   -ooh.

Outro:

Dm  Am/D

(Repeat to Fade)
