What a Shame About Me 

|Am7/D      |          |            |              |

|Am7/D      |          |            |              |

|Am7/D      |          |            | *             |

|Am7/D      |          |            |              |

I was grinding through my day gig
Stackin' cutouts at the Strand*
When in walks Franny from NYU
We were quite an item back then

We talked about her films and shows and Cds
And I don't know what else* 

She said, yeah, Hollywood's been good to me
But tell me - how about yourself 

          Cmaj7           F13
I'm still working on that novel

        Ebmaj7/F       F13 
But I'm just about to quit

           D                  Db7 
'Cause I'm worrying about the future now

   B7            Bbmaj7
Or maybe this is it

     Fmaj7          B7+9             Bbmaj7  E13-9
It's not all that I thought it would be 

       Bb/C    B7+9    Gsus4/Bb  Bbmaj13
What a shame a bout me 

        She said, talk to me, do you ever see

Anybody else from our old crew*

Bobby Dakine won the Bunsen Prize

Now he's coming out with something new 

Alan owns a chain of Steamer Heavens 

And Barry is the software king* 

And somebody told me in the early 80's 

You were gonna be the Next Big Thing 

         Cmaj7           F13
Well now that was just a rumour 

      Ebmaj7/F        F13
But I guess I'm doin' fine 

D                      Db7
Three weeks out of the rehab 

       B7           Bbmaj7
Living one day at a time 

         Fmaj7     B7+9   Bbmaj7   E13-9
Sneaking up on the new century 

       Bb/C     B7+9     Gsus4/Bb   Bbmaj13
What a shame a  bout me 

Am7/D                      Gm7/C
        What a shame about me 

                  Bbm7/Eb           Fmaj9
I'm thinking of a major Jane Street sunrise 

        Bb13           Csus4/Eb   Ebm7/Ab
And the goddess on the fire     escape was you 

|Dbm7/Gb       |             |Abm7/Db         |             |

|Dbm7/Gb       |             |Abm7/Db         |             |

|Gbm7/B        |Abm7/Db      |

We both ran out of small talk 

The connection seemed to go dead*
I was about to say, hey, have a nice life
When she touched my hand and said:

You know I just had this great idea
This could be very cool*
Why don't we grab a cab to my hotel 

And make believe we're back at our old school 

       Cmaj7            F13
I said babe you look de licious

           Ebmaj7/F      F13
And you're standing very close 

         D             Db7
But like this is Lower Broadway 

           B7           Bbmaj7
And you're talking to a ghost 

       Fmaj7          B7+9    Bbmaj7  E13-9
Take a good look it's easy to see 

       Bbmaj7  Ebmaj9     E7  F        
What a shame  about me 

       Bb/C    B7+9     Gsus4/Bb  Bbmaj13   
What a shame a bout me 

   |Am7/D        |            |           |            |
   Shame!                      Shame about me…
