Richard And Linda Thompson - Smiffy's Glass Eye



[Intro]
F      G F G F G

[Verse 1]
G            D           G                  C
Smiffy was a little boy, different from the rest
       G       D                 G            D
He had one eye pointing East and one pointing West
G          D           G              C
Ever since Tiny Murphy hit him with a sling
F               C         G
Smiffy with his glass eye glittering


[Verse 2]
E                           Am
Playing in the school yard, how the kids would marvel
     F                                  Bb            E
When Smiffy popped his glass'un out and used it for a marble
C             G             D
He was such a character the kids would sing
F               C         G           F
Smiffy with his glass eye glittering


[Verse 3]
G                D           G       C
Walking down the street when two big louts
         G          D              G        D
Come and tripped up Smiffy and his eye fell out
     G            D           G        C
They used it as a conker on a piece of string
F               C         G
Smiffy with his glass eye glittering


[Verse 4]
    E                      Am
The girls all laughed when Smiffy passed them by
     F                      Bb            E
They called him Cyclops, he only had one eye
  C            G              D
He never had a girl-friend or that sort of thing
F               C         G            Am
Smiffy with his glass eye glittering


[Bridge]  
(*spoken*)
                                G
"Ooh, there's Smiffy coming tae the Infirmary
F
He's got a glass eye, ye ken"
                   D
"No ye're joking!", "How'd ye find oot?"
                                        F
"Och, it just came oot in conversation"


[Verse 5]
G              D            G         C
Smiffy used to dream of the Judgement Day
         G              D               G               D
When the flood came and carried all his school friends away
       G            D            G       C
He was lifted up to Heaven on an Angel's wing
F               C         G
Smiffy with his glass eye glittering


[Verse 6]
E                     Am
Nobody cried when his world fell apart
    F                     Bb     E
And poor Smiffy died of a broken heart
    C              G            D
You have to turn a blind eye to that sort of thing
F               C         G           F
Smiffy with his glass eye glittering


[Outro]
G  D  G  C  G  D  G  C  G  D  G  C  F  C  G
E   Am   F   Bb  E  C  G  D   F  C  G   F      G F G F G
