Killing of Georgie (Part One and Part Two) (1976)
Rod Stewart
Album: A Night on the Town

Tuning: Capo 3rd Fret

Intro: G Dsus4 C G

G
In these days of changing ways
Dsus4
So called liberated days
  C                                    G
A story comes to mind of a friend of mine

G
Georgie boy, was gay I guess
Dsus4
Nothin' more or nothin' less
    C                    G
The kindest guy I ever knew

G
His mother's tears fell in vain
Dsus4
The afternoon George tried to explain
     C                             G
That he needed love like all the rest

G 
Pa said, there must be a mistake
Dsus4
How can my son not be straight
  C                               G
After all I've said and done for him

(Instrumental G Dsus4 C G)

G 
Leavin' home on a Greyhound bus
Dsus4
Cast out by the ones he loves
   C                            G
A victim of these gay days it seems

G
Georgie went to New York town
Dsus4
Where he quickly settled down
     C                                        G
And soon became the toast of the great white way

G
Accepted by Manhattan's elite
Dsus4
In all the places that were chic
    C                           G
No party was complete without George

G
Along the boulevards he'd cruise
Dsus4
And all the old queens blew a fuse
C                       G
Everybody loved Georgie boy

G
The last time I saw George alive
Dsus4
Was in the summer of seventy-five
    C                               G
He said he was in love, I said I'm pleased

G
George attended the opening night
Dsus4
Of another Broadway hype
   C                                G
But split before the final curtain fell

G
Deciding to take a short cut home
Dsus4
Arm in arm they meant no wrong
   C                             G
A gentle breeze blew down Fifth Avenue

G
Out of a darkened side street came
Dsus4
A New Jersey gang with just one aim
   C                         G
To roll some innocent passer-by

G
There ensued a fearful fight
Dsus4
Screams rang out in the night
 C                                   G
Georgie's head hit a sidewalk cornerstone

G
A leather kid, a switchblade knife
Dsus4
He did not intend to take his life
        C                                      G
He just pushed his luck a little too far that night

G
The sight of blood dispersed the gang
Dsus4
A crowd gathered, the police came
   C                                       G
An ambulance screamed to a halt on Fifty-third and Third

G
Georgie's life ended there
Dsus4
But I ask, who really cares?
C                             G
George once said to me and I quote

G
He said, never wait or hesitate
Dsus4
Get in kid before it's too late
 C                          G
You may never get another chance

 G                           
'Cause youth's a mask but it don't last
Dsus4
Live it long and live it fast
 C                       G
Georgie was a friend of mine

*Instrumental & Whistle*  (G Dsus4 C G) x2

C           F    G          C
Oh, Georgie stay, don't go away
C               F   G                     C
Georgie please stay, you take our breath away
 C  F  G  C     A    B  E  Am E C B  D   E   A  
Oh, Georgie stay, don't go away
D         E             E                     D
Georgie please stay, you take our breath away
D            E         E        D
Oh, Georgie stay, don't go away
D                   E            E                    D         
Georgie, Georgie please stay, you take our breath away
