Rab Noakes - Lenny Bruce

CAPO: 2nd Fret

## NOTE: ~ = Walk-Down from C to D ##

[INTRO:] G  C  G     C ~ D  G      C  G     C ~ D  G

[VERSE 1:]
      C        G
Lenny Bruce is dead
        C     ~     D      G
But his ghost lives on and on
             D            C        G
He never did get any Golden Globe award
      C/G     G  C   G/B D     C
Never made it to sin and on

[VERSE 2:] 
          G        C
He was an outlaw
           G        C
That's for sure
More of an outlaw
     C/G G C G/B D      G
Than you__ ever  were
      C        G
Lenny Bruce is gone
        C        ~      D      G
But his spirit's living on and on

[VERSE 3:]
         C        G
Maybe he had some problems
           C      ~       D             G
Maybe some things that he couldn't work out
                D            C             G
But he sure was funny and he sure told the truth
       C/G       G      C   G/B  D      C
And he knew what he was talking about

[VERSE 4:]
He never robbed any churches
    C                   G
Nor cut off any babies' heads
       C                       G
He just took the folks in high places
       C/G    G C     G/B      D      G
And he shined a light in their beds
      C        G
Lenny Bruce is gone
        C    ~    D                G
But the ones that killed him moved on

[INSTRUMENTAL:] G      C  G     C ~ D  G      C  G     C ~ D  G

[VERSE 5:]
               C      G
They said that he was sick 
           C      ~       D           G
Because he didn't want to play by the rules
                      D        C      G
He just showed up the wise men of his day
      C/G G   C    G/B  D       C
To be nothing more than fools

[VERSE 6:]
They stamped him and they labelled him
          C                 G        C
Like they do with pants and shirts
He fought a war on a battlefield
      C/G G C    G/B D       G
Where every victory  hurts
      C         G
Lenny Bruce was bad
           C       ~    D         G
He was the brother that you never had

[OUTRO:] G      C  G     C ~ D  G      C  G     C ~ D  G
