Just Good Friends / Peter Hammill

>From Patience, The Love Songs, RoomTempratureLive

These are the chords for the song's version in The Love Songs, with some
aid taken from RoomTempratureLive. I've been struggling with this songs
for a very long time (on several occasions on the last three years...)
and I think it is correct now. Special thanks to Mark Veltzer with whom
I share the credit of finding "What the hell did he play back there?"
This song has much more chords than the PH "standard song", very much
because of the raise of 3/2 tones in the key near the end;

F#:     2-4-4-3-2-2------------------------------------.)
F#m:    2-4-4-2-2-2------------------------------------.)
F#5:    2-4-4-x-x-x  (but really this is a no-chord..--.)
A:      5-7-7-6-5-5 or 0-0-2-2-2-0---------------------.)
C#:     x-4-6-6-6-4------------------------------------.)
E:      x-7-9-9-9-7 or 0-2-2-1-0-0---------------------.)
B:      x-2-4-4-4-2 or 7-9-9-8-7-7---------------------.)
G#m:    4-6-6-4-4-4------------------------------------.)
C#m:    x-4-6-6-5-4------------------------------------.)
D:      x-5-7-7-6-5 or x-x-0-2-3-2---------------------.)
Am:     x-0-3-3-2-0 or 5-7-7-5-5-5---------------------.)
G:      5-7-7-6-5-5 or 3-2-0-0-0-3---------------------.)
Am:     x-0-3-3-2-0 or 5-7-7-5-5-5---------------------.)
Bm:     x-2-4-4-3-2 or 7-9-9-9-7-7---------------------.)
Em:     0-2-2-0-0-0 or x-7-9-9-8-7---------------------.)


(Intro:)

F# / F#m / F# / F#m


(First Verse:)

F#
Drawing back the curtains,
							  F#m
sluggish city daylight in the afternoon...
F#
Here's that special silence,
								F#m
just before you walk out of the hotel room.
		  A                   C#
Each time we're so close I assume
		   F#m        C#
that we'll never be again -
		A         E  F#5 (no chord)
oh, how long must we pretend


(Second Verse - same chords)

A casual affair is all that you can spare
from your emotional change;
A calendar of meetings,
strangers on the street
the best we ever arrange.
Now I just can't stand all the pain,
all the constant make and mend;
oh how long must we pretend
that we're just good friends?

F#m                C#
   I gave you my devotion,
F#m                     B
   hiding nothing up my sleeve -
E                    G#m
   If I walked clean out of your life
		  C#m            F#m
would you even notice me leave?
					 C#
So much tangled-up emotion,
F#m                          B
   should I stay or should I go?
E                 G#m
If I walked clean out of your life
	C#m                       F#m
how long would it take you to know?
(no chord)
Are we such good friends?


(On original release include the 4 lyric lines, on The Love Songs
play them instrumentally - Same chords)


You used to say 'I love you',
you used to say 'You make me feel alive and young';
now we're just a habit, a flavour, one a month,
to titillate your tongue.
How sordid this has become
as the means approach the end -
Oh, how long can we pretend


F#m                C#
   I gave you my devotion,
F#m                     B
   hiding nothing up my sleeve -
E (add choir...      G#m
   If I walked clean out of your life
		  C#m            F#m
would you even notice me leave
F#m                   C#
So much tangled-up emotion,
F#m                          D
   should I stay or should I go?
G                 Bm
If I walked clean out of your life
	Em                        D(?)  Am   E   Am   D
how long would it take you to know?
G                 Bm
If I walked clean out of you life
	Em                        Am
how long would it take you to know
(no chord)
Are we such good friends?


Have fun!
