NEW TEST LEPER

From:  David Wagner (102017.1777@CompuServe.COM)
  and  DaWhizz@aol.com


D       A          G    A
I can't say that I love Jesus
D          A           G
that would be a hollow claim.
D      A         G      A
He did make some observations
D       A            G
and I'm quoting them today.
D      A        G        A
"Judge not lest ye be judged."
D      A         G
what a beautiful refrain.
D      A         G     A
The studio audience disagrees.
D        A             G
Have his lambs all gone astray?

D        A        G       A
"You are lost and disillusioned!"
D        A             G
what an awful thing to say.
D      A          G       A
I know this show doesn't matter.
D         A         G
It means nothing to me.
D       A         G          A
I thought I might help them understand
D           A             G
but what an ugly thing to see.
D     A      G     A
"I am not an animal"
D         A         G
subtitled under the screen.

A B C# D   A         G

D               A          G
They cut me off to take a break.
D     A      G        A
I sat silent 5 commercials
D             A       G
I had nothing left to say
D             A        G        A
The talk show host was index-carded
D     A            G
All organized and blank
D         A           G           A
The other guests were scared and hardened
D      A   G
What a sad parade.

When I tried to tell my story
They cut me off to take a break.

All organized and blank
The other guests were scared and hardened
What a sad parade.

What a sad parade

Call me a leper
Call me a leper
Call me a leper

 Anyway, I have tabbed the little lead in from the verses to the chorus
for New Test Leper, and also the chords to strum over the tab. Here
goes.

From: Jacob Knee (jknee@globalnet.co.uk)

Enclosed is my slightly different attempt at working out the basic chord
structure of this song - (taken from the acoustic version).

(I've done it as 'corrections' to the version you already had)

>NEW TEST LEPER
>
>the verse goes like this:
>A*:540005
>
>D  A  G -A*   D  A  G  (4x, me thinks)

(This bit is more or less right - though on the slide up to the fifth fret
I'm not sure if the bass notes are being played)

>the chorus (im pretty sure about this) goes like this:
>
>G  A  B C D C(3x)  G  A  B  C  D  (that may be wrong - it's >from memory)
>
>Bridge:
>Bm A D(4x, me thinks)
>and end on Em(7?)

I would guess the chorus is:

A, Bm, C#m, D
A, G ('Call me a leper')
(on last time - just A)

And the bridge I would say is:
(Bm, D, G X2), A
