[Verse 1]

III G       III  C
   When I'm out walking
   G         C
 I strut my stuff
 G       C         G     -xx--xx-
 And I'm so strung out

   G         C
 I'm high as a kite

 I just might stop to check you out

 Big hands, I know you're the one

 G      C
 My girlfriend, 
 G            C    G      C           G     -xx--xx-
 She's at the end, She is starting to cry

 Blister in the sun
           Em
 Let me go on
