Capo 2nd Fret

Intro: D   A G   Bm   G A     Bm   G A     D   A G

    D                           A       G
You can't write a novel from a briefcase
    Bm                       G     A 
You can write a poem from a trench 
    Bm                      G      A
You can dream a dream from A___ to B
        D                          A    G 
But you can't catch a bus from a bench 

You don't back a horse called Striding Snail 
You don't name your boat Titanic II 
So why when I see your happy smiling face 
Do I always end up singing Little Blue 
 
       D                G
Little Blue, how do you do
     Em               
Your smile looks like heaven
                     A              D
but your eyes hold a storm about to brew
       G   
Little Blue
    Em                          
How can a flower so pretty
                      A    
be so laden down with dew 
         D
Little Blue 

    Bb               Am
How can a flower so beautiful
      Bb              Am
be so laden down with dew
        D 
Little Blue 

You can't build a brewery on a cemetery 
You can build a pub on a church 
And people fall quicker than buildings do 
You have to decide what comes first 

You don't call a plane the Flying Roman 
'Cause the Romans always walked and never flew 
So why when I see your happy smiling face 
Do I always end up singing Little Blue 

Little Blue, how do you do 
Your smile looks like heaven 
but your eyes hold a storm about to brew 
Little Blue 
How can a flower so pretty 
be so laden down with dew 
Little Blue 

A  G  Bm  G  A

       D                           A       G
Well Bukowski wrote a story from a barstool 
    Bm                      G    A
And Keats from the top of a hill
       Bm               G            A
So I'm going to save my special song for you 
       D                               A
From a grave where it's quiet and it's chill 

                 Bb6               Am
'Cause there's a queue of clouds assembled
          Bb6            Am
On the horizon of your smile 
     Bb6                    Am
When most think that you're holding back 
  G                   A
I know you're holding bile 

Little Blue, how do you do 
Your smile looks like heaven 
but your eyes hold a storm about to brew 
Little Blue 
How can a flower so pretty 
be so laden down with dew 
Little Blue 

How can a flower so beautiful
be so laden down with dew 
Little Blue
