The Kinks - A Well Respected Man (1965)


[Verse 1]

        C       Em/B    Am
Cos' he gets up in the morning,
       C       Em/B     Am
And he goes to work at nine,
       C          Em/B     Am
And he comes back home at five-thirty,
         C          Em/B   Am
Gets the same train every time.
          C        Em/B        Am       C
cause his world is built round punctuality,
   Em/B   Am
It never fails.

[Chorus 1] 

         C  Em/B Am
And he's oh, so good,
         C  Em/B Am
And he's oh, so fine,
         C  Em/B  Am
And he's oh, so healthy,
       C    Em/B    Am
In his body and his mind.
       F              Em
He's a well respected man about town,
F                     D          G      C G
Doing the best things so conservatively.


[Verse 2]

        C      Em/B     Am
And his mother goes to meetings,
          C      Em/B       Am
While his father pulls the maid,
        C         Em/B       Am
And she stirs the tea with councillors,
        C        Em/B     Am
While discussing foreign trade,
        C       Em/B     Am
And she passes looks, as well as bills
   C     Em/B         Am
At every suave young man.


[Chorus 2]

         C  Em/B Am
And he's oh, so good,
         C  Em/B Am
And he's oh, so fine,
         C  Em/B  Am
And he's oh, so healthy,
       C    Em/B    Am
In his body and his mind.
       F              Em
He's a well respected man about town,
F                     D          G      C G
Doing the best things so conservatively.

[Verse 3]

       C         Em/B     Am
And he likes his own backyard,
       C         Em/B      Am
And he likes his fags the best,
          C      Em/B      Am
Cos' he's better than the rest,
        C         Em/B        Am
And his own sweat smells the best,
        C       Em/B      Am
And he hopes to grab his father's loot,
     C     Em/B   Am
When Peter passes on.

[Chorus 3] 

         C  Em/B Am
And he's oh, so good,
         C  Em/B Am
And he's oh, so fine,
         C  Em/B  Am
And he's oh, so healthy,
       C    Em/B    Am
In his body and his mind.
       F              Em
He's a well respected man about town,
F                     D          G      C G
Doing the best things so conservatively.

[Verse 4]

       C         Em/B        Am
And he plays at stocks and shares,
       C       Em/B   Am
And he goes to the regatta,
       C          Em/B       Am 
And he adores the girl next door,
          C     Em/B   Am
Cos' he's dying to get at her,
        C      Em/B       Am
But his mother knows the best about,
    C    Em/B    Am 
The matrimonial stakes

[Chorus 4] 

         C  Em/B Am
And he's oh, so good,
         C  Em/B Am
And he's oh, so fine,
         C  Em/B  Am
And he's oh, so healthy,
       C    Em/B    Am
In his body and his mind.
       F              Em
He's a well respected man about town,
F                     D          G      C G
Doing the best things so conservatively.

good, but after the chorus add G,A,B on E string and go into C chord.

Great, but I play an Em/B instead of Em. 5 stars!
