Strawbs - My Friend Peter



[Intro]
Em

[Verse 1]

My friend Peter was not that old
         Am                  Em
He was a generous man with a heart of gold

They took his money, they took his home
N.C.
They wouldn't leave my friend Peter alone


[Verse 2]
Em
My friend Peter's mother, boy she was a bitch
Am                            Em
All she ever gave him was a n-nervous twitch

She left her money to her fancy gent
N.C.
She didn't leave my friend Peter a cent


[Verse 3]
Am
My friend Peter was the company boss
     Em
With labour problems and a heavy loss
    Am
The school bills came with a rise in fees
F#7                 B7
My friend Peter was on his knees


[Verse 4]
Em
My friend Peter was never hip
        Am                   Em
But his wife was fond of the groovy trip

She spent her money like she spent her nights
N.C.
She wouldn't show my friend Peter the sights


[Verse 5]
Em
My friend Peter was a worried guy
         Am                   Em
When the taxman came with his beady eye
 
They froze his bank account, they took his car
N.C.
They wouldn't let my friend Peter go far


[Verse 6]
Am
My friend Peter was a family man
       Em
With a decent job and a long-term plan
   Am
He loved his kids, adored his wife
F#7                  B7             Em
My friend Peter just took his life
