Subject: Tom Petty: Girl On LSD


Tom Petty
Girl on L.S.D.
B-side to the single "You Don't Know How it Feels"
chords figured out by Mark Matthews (rmmatt01@homer.louisvill.edu)
(I think they're right, anyway)

On the album it's played on a clean electric, but this is a great song to
play with an acoustic and a six-pack (or whatever drug you and your girl's
on) with a bunch of friends on the back porch.  But what Petty song isn't,
right?


Note: When you're strumming the D chord do the following slide every now
and then before each verse: xxx23x ----- xxx77X ----- xxx23x (it's hard to
explain in writing, but if you hear the song you'll know what bit I'm
talking about)

D                  G       A   D
I's in love with a girl on marijuana
D                     G        D     A
(she) said if I'm not stoned I don't wanna
        G          D
but she got so paranoid
    A              G
her place I would avoid
       G           A          D
I's in love with a girl on marijuana

[same for all verses]

I's in love with a girl on cocaine
she had everything going but her brain
we'd talk endlessly for hours
but by morning it'd go sour
I's in love with a girl on cocaine

(chorus:)
        G               D
Through extacy, crystal meth. and glue
A                           D
I found no drug compares to you
G
all these pills
D
and all this weed
A
I don't know just what I need


I's in love with a girl on l.s.d.
she'd see things I'd never see
she broadened her perspective
then I got more selective
I's in love with a girl on l.s.d.

(repeat chorus)

I's in love with a girl who drank beer
till bad breath and all she disappeared
she was blowing up real bad
but when she left I was still sad
I's in love with a girl who drank beer

I's in love with a girl on china white
we were married for a year one night
her memory still lingers
cause I burned all my fingers
I's in love with a girl on china white

I's in love with a girl who drank coffee
there was times when I couldn't keep her off me
that caffine got her going
but her ugly side was showing
I's in love with a girl who drank coffee

I's in love with a girl who was a dealer
I's afraid somebody'd come and steal her
we never used to fight
but the phone rang day and night
I's in love with a girl who was a dealer

sure as hell
she got popped by the big guys
