		Boomerang (Mansfield/Sales/Burnette)

Intro:  A E A E A-E-A A D-A-E

Verse 1:
	E                  D-A-E
	Up in New York City

	E                      D-A-E
	'Neath the bamboo trees

	E                   A-E-A
	She was eating sushi

	He was on his knees

	E                           D-A-E
	He tried to say he loved her

	E                   D-A-E
	But he could not win

	E                          A-E-A
	She just fixed her lipstick

	And kept ignoring him - she was...

Chorus: D      A          E-Esus4-E  Esus4-E
	Headed for a crash

	       D    A            E-Esus4-E  Esus4-E
	And it even hurt to laugh

	         D     A          E(hold)
	Cause it ended with a bang

				       A  E  A  E
	When it all came back like a boomerang

	E			       A  E  A  E
	When it all came back like a boomerang

Verse 2:
	A-E-A A D-A-E

	She went to a party
	With thieves and debutants
	All talking italics
	And so much nonchalance
	He was on the outside
	Standing in the rain
	He saw her thru a window
	He couldn't stand the pain - he was...

		- chorus -

Verse 3:
	A-E-A A D-A-E

	She went up the staircase
	With a sleazy mideast guest
	Who could not help staring
	Thru her flimsy cocktail dress
	He broke into the bedroom
	They put him on the spot
	He took off his pistol
	They never heard the shots - they were...

		- chorus -
	E			       A  E  A  E
	When it all came back like a boomerang

		- solo over ||: A E A E E :|| -

a note or two:

in the D-A-E progression at the end of lines 1, 2, 5 & 6 in the
verses, the D and A are one beat each and before playing the E
hit the open D string, hammer on the E (second fret) to play the
open E chord - this sounds harder than it actually is.

for the E-Esus4-E progression in the chorus just touch that sus4
for an eighth note. listen to the recording for the changes - it's
very rhythmic and it's tough to get the feel of it just by reading
the above. as always...
