[Verse 1]
I've got a little black book with my poems in.
      E                                    E E7
Got a bag with a toothbrush and a comb in.
     F                                         C             F
When I'm a good dog, they sometimes throw me a bone in.
I got elastic bands keeping my shoes on.
         E                    E E7
Got those swollen hand blues.
      F                                        C
I got thirteen channels of shit on the T.V. to choose from.
[Verse 2]
I've got electric light.
 And I've got second sight.
      F       Fm             C       E7  Am  D7  G
I got amazing powers of observation.
And that is how I know
When I try to get through
C                            D     Fm6
 On the telephone to you
                   C     F    C    F
There'll be nobody home.
[Verse 3]
I've got the obligatory Hendrix perm.
         E                        E E7
And the inevitable pinhole burns
F                                         C      F
All down the front of my favourite satin shirt.
I've got nicotine stains on my fingers.
           E                        E E7
I've got a silver spoon on a chain.
           F                                  C
I've got a grand piano to prop up my mortal remains.
[Verse 4]
I've got wild staring eyes.
C7                                    F
 And I've got a strong urge to fly.
    Fm               C       E7  Am  D7  G  E7
But I got nowhere to fly to.
Am         C                              D Fm6
Ooooh, Babe when I pick up the phone
                     C      F    C    F
There's still nobody home.
I've got a pair of Gohills boots
         E       E7
And I got fading roots.
