"Goin' Through Your Purse" -- Material Issue

From the album _Freak City Soundtrack_.

Written by:  Jim Ellison
Transcribed by:  Mike Novak


I'm not super sure about the chorus, but what I have here works
for me...  And incidently, the lyrics in the liner notes for this
song our wrong in a few places; that's so like them. :)


       G
Well I know it's been a little while

          Bmin
Since the first time that I made you smile

      Emin                       D   C
And I thought I'd take this opportunity

   G
To dig a little deeper inside

    Bmin                              Emin
And try to find out what someone like you

                  D    C
is trying to hide from me


       C                       D
Well I hope that you don't get angry girl

  G        F#    F   E
I hope you don't get hurt

D      C                    D                  C       G
By the things I found while goin' through your purse


Your Make-up, your compact, lipstick, and shit like that
And the keys that you keep on a chain
Your cigarettes and my lighter too
And a picture of your sister
God I think your one in the same

Then I cleverly put all these things back into place so you
Wouldn't think that I was a jerk
The things I found while goin' through your purse


[the solo goes something like this:]

E|-------------------------4-5-7--4-5-7--4-5-7-4-----|
B|-4-5-7--4-5-7--4-5-7-4-----------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------|


E|-/9--12---9\-7--10---7\-5---567-5------|
B|---------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------|

     (bend up)
E|------------------------5-6^(7)-(7)-(7)--5--4------|
B|-5-6^(7)-(7)-(7)--5--4-----------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------|

E|-/9--12---9\-7--10---7\-5---567-5\-----|
B|---------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------|

Then I cleverly put all these things back into place so you
Wouldn't think that I was a jerk
The things I found while goin' through your purse

[Drum fill...  next verse no guitar]

Well a photo of your mother too
And all the guys who date you
And your high school graduation ring
And a check stub from the place you work
Some poetry from some
Stupid jerk who's tryin' to
Steal your heart away from me

Well I hope that you don't get offended girl
Yeah and I hope you don't get hurt
By the things I found while going through
Yeah the things I found when I was goin' thru
The things I found while goin' thru your purse

[variation of solo... end on open Emin chord ]
