Band: Super Furry Animals
Song: Sidewalk Serfer Girl

This song is about a woman (Patty Whitebull) who was in a coma for 15 years, but
was able to dream throughout, and the first thing she did when she woke up was order pizza.

An acoustic guitar finger picks from A chord throughout verse, and at the end
of each line an electric guitar plays the distorted D chord.

Verse:

Patty Whitebull fell asleep for 15 years
Then unexpectedly she woke to joy and tears
She ordered pizza and then asked about her kids
They're all grown up now on the reservation grid

Chorus:

A        G      D
Sidewalk serfer girl
       E           D
I'd do anything to catch you falling
A        G      D
Sidewalk surfer girl
       E        D               A       D
I'd do anything to be with you, sometimes


Verse:

A                                           D  etc
Since Patty fell asleep things got so extreme
Surfer boys and girls searching for a dream
Paraglide from space die your bungee best
Set yourself alight whilst famine kills the rest


Riff: Possibly on keys or moog

Chorus:

Sidewalk serfer girl
I'd do anything to catch you falling
Sidewalk surfer girl
I'd do anything to be with you, sometimes

Verse:

When Patty's aunts don't know the uncles will have fun
She cruised the streets at night she left home on the run
(swell)
She never talks to me cos I'm a major yawn
(excuse me)
Return the difference don't retake me, I'm no pawn


Chorus:

Sidewalk surfer girl
I'd do anything to catch you falling
Silent surfer girl
I'd do anything to catch you falling (X4)

(I dream of sidewalk surfer girl)
