Verse 1
A                              C#m
In these days of changing ways so called liberated days
  D                                  A
A story comes to mind of a friend of mine
A                           C#m                       
Georgie boy was gay I guess nothing more or nothing less
    D                  A
The kindest guy I ever knew
A                                   C#m
His mother's tears fell in vain the afternoon George tried to explain
        D                        A
That he needed love like all the rest
A                               C#m
Pa said there must be a mistake how can my son not be straight
D                                A
After all I've said and done for him

Interlude
A                    C#m                  D                    A
Da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da

Verse 2
A                               C#m
Leaving home on a Greyhound bus cast out by the ones he loves
  D                           A
A victim of these gay days it seems
A                             C#m
Georgie went to New York town where he quickly settled down
    D                                        A
And soon became the toast of the great white way
A                                C#m
Accepted by Manhattan's elite in all the places that were chic
   D                          A
No party was complete without George
A                                    C#m
Along the boulevards he'd cruise and all the old queens blew a fuse
D                       A
Everybody loved Georgie boy

Interlude (or whistle like Rod!)
A                    C#m                  D                    A
Da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da

Verse 3
A                                    C#m
The last time I saw George alive was in the summer of seventy-five
   D                              A
He said he was in love I said I'm pleased
A                                 C#m
George attended the opening night of another Broadway hype
    D                              A
but split before the final curtain fell
A                                 C#m
Deciding to take a short cut home arm in arm we meant no wrong
  D                                 A
A gentle breeze blew down Fifth Avenue

Interlude
A                    C#m                  D                    A
Da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da

Verse 4
A                                    C#m
Out of a darkened side street came a New Jersey gang with just aim
   D                         A
to roll some innocent passer by
A                            C#m
There ensued a fearful fight screams rang out into the night
D                                    A
Georgie's head hit a sidewalk cornerstone
A                                    C#m
A leather kid a switchblade knife he did not intend to take his life
        D                                     A
He just pushed his luck a little too far that night
A                                       C#m
The sight of blood dispersed the gang a crowd gathered the police came
   D                                     A
An ambulance screamed to a halt on Fifty-third and Third

Interlude
A                    C#m                  D                    A
Da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da

Verse 5
A                          C#m
Georgie's life ended there but I ask who really cares
D                            A
George once said to me and I quote
A                              C#m
He said never wait or hesitate get in kid before it's too late
D                         A
You may never get another chance
A                                     C#m
'Cos youth's a mask but it don't last live it long and live it fast
D                       A
Georgie was a friend of mine

Interlude (or whistle like Rod!)
A                    C#m                  D                    A
Da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da

A                    C#m                  D                    A
Da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da
