                 THE KILLING OF GEORGIE (PT. I & II)
                             ROD STEWART


CAPO: NONE


INTRO: 
Bb   Eb Bb    Eb  Bb

    Bb   Dm  Eb   Bb
Oh yeah


VERSE:
Bb
In these days of changing ways
Dm
So called liberated days
    Eb                                Bb
A story comes to mind of a friend of mine

 Bb
Georgie boy was gay I guess
  Dm
Nothing more or nothing less
     Eb                 Bb
The kindest guy I ever knew

     Bb
His mother's tears fell in vain
     Dm
The afternoon george tried to explain
 Eb                               Bb
That he needed love like all the rest

Bb
Pa said there must be a mistake
Dm
How can my son not be straight
Eb                               Bb
After all I've said and done for him


INSTRUMENTAL: 
Bb  Dm  Eb  Bb


VERSE:
 Bb
Leaving home on a greyhound bus
 Dm
Cast out by the ones he loves
   Eb                          Bb
A victim of these gay days it seems


INSTRUMENTAL: 
Bb  Dm  Eb  Bb


VERSE:
 Bb
Georgie went to new york town
 Dm
Where he quickly settled down
     Eb                                      Bb
And soon became the toast of the great white way

 Bb
Accepted by manhattan's elite
   Dm
In all the places that were chic
   Eb                          Bb
No party was complete without George

  Bb
Along the boulevards he'd cruise
    Dm
And all the old queens blew a fuse
 Eb                     Bb
Everybody loved Georgie boy


INSTRUMENTAL & WHISTLING: 
Bb  Dm  Eb  Bb


VERSE:
     Bb
The last time I saw George alive
    Dm
Was in the summer of seventy-five
    Eb                             Bb
He said he was in love I said I'm pleased

 Bb
George attended the opening night
Dm
Of another broadway hype
     Eb                             Bb
But split before the final curtain fell

   Bb
Deciding to take a short cut home
Dm
Arm in arm they meant no wrong
   Eb                              Bb
A gentle breeze blew down fifth avenue


INSTRUMENTAL: 
Bb  Dm  Eb  Bb


VERSE:
Bb
Out of a darkened side street came
  Dm
A New Jersey gang with just one aim
    Eb                       Bb
To roll some innocent passer-by

 Bb
There ensued a fearful fight
  Dm
Screams rang out in the night
  Eb                                 Bb
Georgie's head hit a sidewalk cornerstone

   Bb
A leather kid, a switchblade knife
   Dm
He did not intend to take his life
         Eb                                    Bb
He just pushed his luck a little too far that night

     Bb
The sight of blood dispersed the gang
   Dm
A crowd gathered, the police came
   Eb                               Bb
An ambulance screamed to a halt on fifty-third and third


INSTRUMENTAL: 
Bb  Dm  Eb  Bb

 Bb
Georgie's life ended there
Dm
But I ask who really cares
 Eb                           Bb
George once said to me and I quote

        Bb
He said never wait or hesitate
Dm
Get in kid, before it's too late
Eb                          Bb
You may never get another chance

      Bb
'Cos youth a mask but it don't last
 Dm
Live it long and live it fast
 Eb                     Bb
Georgie was a friend of mine

Transpose it to A, then play as A, Amaj7, D, A, etc...it sounds better.
