NEEDLES AND PINS by JACKIE de SHANNON in C

This is the best version by the writer of the song in the key that she sings it in –
really soulful, with a clever key change.
If you find the intro challenging it is easier in the key of D, but it leaves you with a
key change to F#!
You can play the intro through most of the first and second verse, but definitely half
the intro where the -------------- appears. Listen to Jackie’s version and you will soon
pick it up.
The song actually fades, but I have added a final line

First Verse
            C
I saw him today, I saw his face
                  Am
It was the face I loved, and I knew
              C
I had to run away
                                   Am
And get down on my knees and pra-a-ay, that they’d go away
                 C                           Am
And still they begin,------------needles and pins
                  F                        G
Because of all my pride, the tears I gotta hide

Second Verse
                   C
Oh I thought I was smart, I’d won his heart
                   Am
I didn't think I'd lose, but now I see
                        C
She's worse to him than me, let her go ahead
                 Am
Take his love instead, and one day he will see
                C                                     Am
Just how to say please------------and get down on his knees
                   F                                  G
Oh that's how it begins, he'll feel those needle and pins
G                            G G G/F# E
A-hurtin' him, A-hurtin' him

Bridge, then key change

E                                     D
Why can't I stop, and tell myself I'm wrong, I'm wrong, so wrong
C                                         B
Why can't I stand up, and tell myself I'm strong

n.C.                 E
Because, I saw him today, I saw his face
                  C#m
It was the face I loved, I can’t let go
           E
Although I know he’ll make me cry
           C#m
Oh a wo-ah woh till the day I die
           E
But people I got to live now
                       C#m
And though I know that I’ll just forgive now
               A                                 B
Yeah when it begins, he'll feel those needle and pins
B
A-hurtin' him, stop it now
B                   E
Stop those needles, stop those pins
                 C#m                           A
Lord when they begin, oh won’t you hear what I say
                    B
Somebody take them away, stop ’em now, stop ‘em
B                      E
Stop those needles and pins
E              C#m                          A
Oh when they begin I feel those needles and pins
  B
A-hurtin’ me, hurtin’ me

B           E
Needles and pins
