...JAMES AND THE COLD GUN... by Kate Bush
----------------------------.............

*from 'The Kick Inside' (1978)*


*CAPO 1st FRET*

(Original Key: Bbm)


Intro:

Am7  G/A, Dm7 (x4)

Verse 1:

Am  G/A    Dm7      Am   G/A  Dm7
     James, come on home.
Am      G/A       Dm7
 You've been gone too long, baby.
Am  G/A           Dm7  Am    G/A  Dm7
 We can't let our hero die a-lone.

            Am      G/A   Dm7
We miss you day and night,
Am   G/A          Dm7
 You left town to live by the rifle.
Am   G/A        Dm7
 You left us to fight,
       E7
But it just ain't right, to take away the light.

Bridge 1:

F         C      G           Dm
 Remember Genie, from the ca-sino?
F              C                G
 She's still a-waiting, in that big brass bed.
F              C          G            Dm
 The boys from your gang, are knocking whisky back,
F               C               G
 'Till they get out of hand and wish they were dead.

F             Dm             C              G               Fmaj7
 They're only lonely for the life that they led, with their old friends.

Chorus 1:

Am    G  F     E7      Am  G  F
 Ooh...   wooh-hoo-ooh-hoo,
         E7           Am   G  F
Wooh-hoo-hoo-hoo, hoo hoo,
         E7      (C)
Wooh-hoo-hoo-hoo, hoo.

C      Dm       F            E7       (Am)
 James, are you selling your soul to a cold gun?

Interlude:

Am  G/A, Dm7 (x2)

Verse 2:

Am     G/A  Dm7        Am    G/A  Dm7
 Where,      lies your heart?
Am        G/A          Dm7
 It's not there in the buckskin baby.
Am        G/A          Dm7
 It's not there in the gin,
               Am    G/A      Dm7
That makes you laugh long and loud.

         Am      G/A   Dm7
You're a coward, James;
Am      G/A       Dm7
 You're running a-way from humanity.
Am      G/A     Dm7
 You're running out on reality.
E7
 It won't be funny, when they rat-a-tat-tat you down.

Bridge 2:

F         C      G           Dm
 Remember Genie, from the ca-sino?
F              C                G
 She's still a-waiting, in that big brass bed.
F              C          G            Dm
 The boys from your gang, are knocking whiskey back,
F               C               G
 'Till they get out of hand and wish they were dead.

F             Dm             C              G               Fmaj7
 They're only lonely for the life that they led, with their old friends.

Chorus 2:

Am    G  F     E7      Am  G  F
 Ooh...   wooh-hoo-ooh-hoo,
         E7           Am   G  F
Wooh-hoo-hoo-hoo, hoo hoo,
         E7      (C)
Wooh-hoo-hoo-hoo, hoo.

C      Dm       F            E7     Dm               Am   G/A, Dm7
 James, are you selling your soul... to... a cold... gun?

Outro:

Am  G/A, Dm7

(Repeat to Fade)
