        Wild Child
        by Lou Reed
        From: 'Lou Reed' (1972)       

        D                             G
        I was talking to Chuck in his Genghis Khan suit
                D
        and his wizard's hat
                                  G
        He spoke of his movie and how he was making
          D
        a new soundtrack

            C                G           D
        And then we spoke of kids on the coast
            C                  G       D
        and different types of organic soap
            C          G                 D
        And the way suicides don't leave notes
                         A
        Then we spoke of Lorraine

        always back to Lorraine

        D                              G
        I was speaking to Phil who was given to pills
                  D
        and small racing cars
                                      G
        He had given 'em up since his last crack-up
                    D
        had carried him too far

        C                G           D
        Then we spoke of movies and verse
            C          G                D
        and the way an actress held her purse
            C               G               D
        And the way life at times could get worse
                         A
        Then we spoke of Lorraine

        always back to Lorraine

            D            G
        Ah, she's a wild child
            D              G
        and nobody can get at her
        D            G
        She's a wild child
                D              G
        oh, and nobody can get to her

        Bm                                        
        Sleeping out on the street
        G          D   G     
        Oh, living all alone
        D                    G
        without a house or a home
                                F#m
        and then she asked you, please
                  A
        hey baby, can I have some spare change
                             D
        Oh, can I break your heart

                     G     D
        She's a wild child
                     G     D
        she's a wild child

        D                      G
        I was talking to Betty about her auditions
                 D
        how they made her ill
                                   G
        The life of the theater is certainly fraught
                  D
        with many spills and chills

        C                   G          D
        But she calmed down after some wine
        C                     G           D
        which is what happens most of the time
        C               G             D
        Then we sat and both spoke in rhyme
                         A
        Till we spoke of Lorraine

        ah, it's always back to Lorraine

        D                              G
        I was talking to Ed who'd been reported dead
           D
        by mutual friends
                                G
        He thought it was funny that I had no money
        D
        to spend on him

        C                   G              D
        So we both shared a piece of sweet cheese
        C               G             D
        and sang of our lives and our dreams
        C                       G            D
        And how things can come apart at the seams
                         A
        And we talked of Lorraine

        always back to Lorraine

        D            G
        She's a wild child
                D              G
        oh, and nobody can get at her
        D            G
        She's a wild child
                D              G
        oh, and nobody can get to her

        Bm                         
        Sleeping out on the street
        G          D   G
        Oh, living all alone
        D                    G
        without a house or a home
                                F#m
        and then she asked you, please
                 A
        oh baby, can I have some spare change
                             D
        Now can I break your heart

                     G     D
        She's a wild child
                     G     D
        she's a wild child

Solid tab. Always loved this song. I believe all the chords are correct. It would be a five star if the timing of the chord changes was better.

I fixed the chords in the chorus as they were in the wrong places - should be a 5 star tab, now.
