Another great Enz song. Works OK on the guitar but sounds better on the
piano.
Enjoy,
JK


Poor Boy  - Split Enz
~~~~~~~~
From 'True Colours' and 'Enz of an Era'.

Transcribed by John Kean (keanj@agresearch.cri.nz).


INTRO:
B

VERSE 1:
Em          D     Bm7           Am
 My love is alien, I picked her up by chance
C                D                A         Em
 She speaks to me with ultra-high frequency
Em       D            Bm7                Am
 A radio band of gold, gonna listen 'til I grow old
C
 Ooh hoo hoo
Em
 What more can a poor boy...

CHORUS:
   Am                D                 G                 E

  do...?

VERSE 2:
 The crackle of the radio, a message in the evening sky
 You're looking at an interplanetary Romeo
 I'll never see her face - between us there's too much space
 Ooh hoo hoo
 What more can a poor boy...

CHORUS (as before)

SOLO:
 Em   D   Bm7   Am  (x4, then)  C   Em

OUTRO: (Ad lib lyrics from chorus)
 Am   D    G    E   (x8, then)  C   Em
