THE BUSY GIRL BUYS BEAUTY
Tabbed by Tcoldsteel
One of my favourite Billy Bragg songs.

LITTLE DISTORTION (maybe overdrive) & DELAY (3+) or echo.
Heavy on the treble and turned up LOUD.
Tuning: standard

Open chords with picking on bass note at chord changes. Like all Billy’s early songs 
of palm-muting.

CAPO 3!!!

Intro: G
G	D	C	G
The busy girl buys beauty
C	G	D
And the pretty girl buys style.
C	G		Am	C
And the simple girl buys what she’s told to buy.


Em		C
And sees her world
  		D
Through the brightly lit eyes
D
Of the glossy romance of fashion

Where she can learn...

D	Em	C	D
Top tips for the gas cook
D	Em	C	D
Successful secrets of a sexual kind
D	Em	C	D
The daily drill for beautiful hair

And the truth about pain

GGCC		GGCC	GGCC	D

Em	D
What was Anna Ford wearing?
Em	D
What did Angela Rippon say?
C
What will you do
Em
When you wake up one morning
D
To find that God's made you plain
In a beautiful person's world?
And all those quick recipes
Have let you down
And you're 20 & a1/2  and not yet engaged
Will you go look for the boy who says
   					D
I love you let's get married and have kids

The busy girl buys beauty
The pretty girl buys style
And the simple girl buys
What she's told to buy
Through the brightly lit eyes
Of the glossy romance of fashion
Where she can learn...
Top tips for the gas cook
Successful secrets of a sexual kind
The daily drill for beautiful hair
In a mail order paradise...

Any suggestions are welcome.
Can anyone work out ‘lover’s town revisited’?
Also what is that beaten up, brown guitar that billy played in his early days?
