Bridge:
  C          G9       C     Fmaj      C     G6        C
Lovely girl won't you stay, won't you stay, stay with me
  C         G9    C      Fmaj  C      G6    C
All my life I was blind, I was blind, now I see
  C          G9       C     Fmaj      C     G6        C
Lovely girl won't you stay, won't you stay, stay with me
  C         G9    C      Fmaj  C      G6    C
All my life I was blind, I was blind, now I see

Verse:
C                                       G6
Fleet of black, fleet of black limousines
                     Fmaj                      C
These tinted machines, here comes the cavalcade
                                                 G6
With the armored cars, armored cars like berettas
                  Fmaj                 C             G6                 
Flags on antennaes designed to keep me safe, keep me safe

Chorus:
C            G9        C
And oh my my oh hey hey
Fmaj    C          G9     C
Here he comes, the candidate
C              G9           C
Blue eyed boy, united states
Fmaj     C        G9      C
Vote for him, the candidate

Verse:
Diamonds cut, diamonds cut for the carrots
Plaster of paris, the floats fill up the street
And the beauty queens, beauty queens with the white gloves
All sick from the night clubs, they wave with pageantry, pageantry

Chorus:
Oh my my oh hey hey
Here it comes, the big parade
Marching bands and barricades
Make way, for the big parade

Break:
Am     G6     Fmaj
Ooohhh ooohhh ooohhh

Verse:
Canvas covered, canvas covered in resin
The violent men who dance the blood ballet
And the bookies say, bookies say it's the 3rd round
Oh when louie will go down, if he don't there's hell to pay, and hell to raise

Chorus:
And oh my my oh hey hey
Here he comes, the welterweight
Take a dive, for goodness sake
Or say goodbye to the welterweight

Verse:
Catholic priest, catholic priest in a crisis
He's torn between romance and jesus, who will win the civil war
And he says I'm in love, I'm in love with a woman
Yea this is my confession, I'm leaving I can't a priest anymore, anymore

Chorus:
And oh my my oh hey hey
There he goes, the man of faith
Left the church for a fiance
Let him love, the man of faith

Break:
Ooohhh ooohhh ooohhh

Verse:
T.v. cameras, t.v. cameras and stage hands
American bandstand, electric guitars
And he's singin songs, singin songs for the lonely
All the girls with the room keys, they know all his words by heart, by heart and they all sing

Bridge:
Lovely girl won't you stay, won't you stay, stay with me
All my life I was blind, I was blind, now I see
Lovely girl won't you stay, won't you stay, stay with me
All my life I was blind, I was blind, now I see

Break II:
Am          G6        Fmaj
Lovely girl won't you stay ooohhh ooohhh ooohhh

Chorus:
Oh my my oh hey hey
Here she comes by saving grace
Burn the car and save the plates
She's arrived, my saving grace
