The Kids : Lou Reed : Berlin (?) and 'Between Thought and Expression'

When you really hit those chords HARD, with single strokes, it's very powerful.
Have your kids join in at the appropriate point :-)

F = 002220
G6 = 002222
Gs4 = 002230
G9 = 002200
A* = 000200 (not at all sure this is right)
Av = x77655  (C shape, barre 5)
Aix = x009b9 (C shape at 9)
C = x00323
C9 = x00320
G = 320003 and MUST be played like this
Giii = x55433 (C shape, barre 3)
Gvii = x00797 (C shape at 7)
h = hammer-on the whole chord

        Aix       Gvii      C   Cs4 C
They've taken her children away

F	     C		  F	     C
Because they said she was not a good mother

        Aix       Gvii      C   Cs4 C
They've taken her children away

F		C	       F	   C
Because she was making it with sisters and brothers

    F	     C	   F	      C
And everyone else, all of the others

     F	       C
Like cheap officers who would

F		C		  F	G6 Gs4 F
					^^^^(these variations this verse only)
Stand there and flirt in front of me

They've taken her children away
Because they said she was not a good mother
They've taken her children away
Because of the things that they said she had done
The black air-force sergeant was not the first one and
All of the drugs she took

F     C          F     G9 F
Every one, every one

[Chorus]

	     A         A9hA A9hA
And I am the water boy

		    C		F C
The real game's not over here

       F	    C           F   F*  F
But my heart is overflowing, anyw - a - y

	     A		A9hA A9hA
I'm just the tired man

   C		 F  C
No words to say, 	But

F		   F        A9hA
Since she lost her daughter	   It's her

F		    F     A9hA
Eyes that fill with water	And

F         F
I am much happier this

Aix	Gvii C Cs4 C

They're taking her children away
Because they said she was not a good mother
They're taking her children away
Because number one was the girlfriend from Paris
The things that they did they didn't have to ask us
And then the Welshmen from India, we came here to stay

They're taking her children away
Because they said she was not a good mother
They're taking her children away
Because of the things she did in the streets
In the alleys and bars no she couldn't be beat
That miserable rotten slut couldn't turn anyone away

Aix Gvii C Cs4 C

Aix Gvii C Cs4 C
F C F C
Aix Gvii C Cs4 C
F C F C F C F C F C F C ad infinitum while kids scream

then suddenly, in ringing acoustic guitar

Av Giii C F
[Chorus]
