When Harpo Played His Harp - Jonathan Richman & The Modern Lovers from "Modern Lovers '88"

The album version starts on an E chord. This is just easier for me to sing.

     F                 F             F
When Harpo played his harp it was a mystery
F                 Am                 F     G
All the laughing stopped back to the balcony
F
Chico, Chico, sure to please
Am         G        F         F
Now let's watch him shoot the keys
      F                   Am             G 
When Harpo would play his harp, all was still


      F               F              F       
When Harpo played his harp it was a dream it was
F                         Am             F       G    
Well, if someone else can do it how come nobody does?
F
Groucho, Groucho, fast as light
Am        G         F       F  
Some talk like him, but not quite
          F                   G             F      F          
And when Harpo would play his harp, all was still, still.


 
F      Am      F           G
Harpo, Harpo, this is the angels
     F            Am       F        G
And where did you get that sound so fine?
F        Am   F        G
Harpo, Harpo, we gotta hear it
F               F
Oooh, one more time


F        Am    F            G
Harpo, Harpo, we're in the galaxies
    F             Am       F           G
And where did you get that sound so fine?
F       Am    F        G
Harpo, Harpo, we gotta hear it
F              F
Oooh, one more time.



         F                    F             F
Do you remember what he would do sometimes before he'd play?
     F              Am               F       G
He'd look up to the sky and look the angels' way
F
Harpo, Harpo, when you start
Am       G      F      F 
Tears of joy inside my heart
      F               G             F   F         
When Harpo played his harp, all was still



 
F        Am    F           G
Harpo, Harpo, this is the angels
     F            Am       F        G
And where did you get that sound so fine?
F        Am   F        G
Harpo, Harpo, we gotta hear it
F               F
Oooh, one more time


F        Am    F            G
Harpo, Harpo, we're in the galaxies
    F             Am       F           G
And where did you get that sound so fine?
F       Am    F        G
Harpo, Harpo, we gotta hear it
F              Am
Oooh, one more time.
          F              F
Ooh oh oh ooh, one more time.
