Lindisfarne - Turn A Deaf Ear


CAPO: 2nd Fret



[INTRO:] C

[VERSE 1:]
    G              F               C
The stage director stood up and he called the actors down
   G                 F                                   C
He asked them all to say three words, 'Up', 'Down' and 'Around'
     G                 F                      C
So, 'Up', 'Down' and 'Around' they cried with one according voice
    G             F                                      C
And up, down and around they went, for it was their only choice

 
[CHORUS:]
           Dm          G      C
I can only turn again, to the front again
        Dm          G      C
Only to turn again, to the rear
            Dm          G           C
Turn again, turn again, turn, turn, turn, again
      F           G       C
I can listen, but I can't hear


[VERSE 2:]
   G                        F               C
My friend's girl, she has a wireless aerial sticking out of her head
      G              F                           C
And a pile of true romances lying underneath the bed
      G               F            C
And a giant poster of Rabby Noakes just beside the door
      G                     F                                         C
But I know she'll get along fine without him if it doesn't see her anymore


[CHORUS:]
           Dm          G      C
I can only turn again, to the front again
        Dm          G      C
Only to turn again, to the rear
            Dm          G           C
Turn again, turn again, turn, turn, turn, again
      F           G       C
I can listen, but I can't hear


[VERSE 3:]
    G                         F             C
The strings were cut from the guitar puppet singer on the stage
        G            F                                  C
And his music became furious and he stamped his foot in rage
    G                     F          C
The girls all screamed in agony, the boys they gaped in fear
        G                     F                C
And the song was called 'Have Mercy Baby, Have Mercy On My Ear'


[CHORUS:]
           Dm          G      C
I can only turn again, to the front again
        Dm          G      C
Only to turn again, to the rear
            Dm          G           C
Turn again, turn again, turn, turn, turn, again
      F           G       C
I can listen, but I can't hear


[VERSE 4:]
    G               F                   C
I remember what the old man said on his little wooden stand
      G          F                            C
As he spoke very quietly with a waving of his hand
 G               F                  C
"Every pigeon to its own hole", but what he seemed to say
  G                F                              C
I know I should go looking for, a better place to stay


[CHORUS:]
           Dm          G      C
I can only turn again, to the front again
        Dm          G      C
Only to turn again, to the rear
            Dm          G           C
Turn again, turn again, turn, turn, turn, again
      F           G       C
I can listen, but I can't hear
            Dm          G           C
Turn again, turn again, turn, turn, turn, again
      F           Dm  G        C   G Bb A Ab G C
I can listen, but I_____ can't hear
