[Intro]  :  
        Am Em x3 C7 B7

[Verse]  :
               Am                    Em
        He was born diseased with a twisted mind
        Am                    Em
        His hands his feet his elbows tied
        Am                           Em             C7 B7
        Sleeps in the day but in the night he cries

               Am             Em
        The bastard son of a travelling man
               Am               Em
        Concieved and born in a caravan
               Am                      Em          C7 B7
        Lives where he could and comes out when he can

        D5                                 D#5
        Death of a rock star played by an actor
        D5                                 G#5
        Got to make a film cos he died in a fast car
          D5                             D#5
        With lots of booze, drugs and sex
        C7                     B7
        Make him up a demi god invent all the rest 
        D5                                   D#5
        Like character John's been trying it on 
         D5                                 G#5
        To get his picture in the News
        D5                                             D#5
        He took a leap from his pad same place that his dad
                    C7       B7
        Choked on a video so blue
