The Lonely Goth chords

Mick Thomas

Key: 

(intro) D G Em7 D G Em7 D G Em7 Velvet pants and a big top hat D G Em7 It's a little hot to be dressed like that D G Em7 Down near the war memorial he's propped C G In a big balck cape and twelve hole docs D G Em7 D G Em7 Now he almost made his auntie faint When he stopped at the chemist for some black nail paint She just stood there hands on hips He said "Aunty Em it'll match my lips" (chorus) A I heard his mother and his father say F#m "What possessed the boy to dress that way?" G G/F# Em7 But don't you try and bring him down C G He's a lonely goth in a country town D G Em7 D G Em7 Now his father's family settled here In another time, it was a long gone year He knows about them all you see They're buried at the local cemetery There's a girl in the next town that he knows They met at a Marilyn Manson show And they write letters and they swap spells They'll be together one day in hell (chorus) A I heard his mother and his father say F#m "What possessed the boy to dress that way?" G G/F# Em7 And what will the blokes at the bottom pub say G G/F# Em7 And the women down at her CWA? G G/F# Em7 But don't you try and bring him down C G He's a lonely goth in a country town D G Em7 D G Em7 F#m To dress like that around here you guess G That he likes being close to death A He doesn't like footy, he doesn't like cars A He didn't mind Coppolla's Dracula One day he'll be rid of this place Run like mascara down a pale white face. He doesn't believe in a god above But you could never doubt his mother's love (chorus) A I heard his mother and his father say F#m "What possessed the boy to dress that way?" G G/F# Em7 And what will the blokes at the top pub say G G/F# Em7 And the women down at her CWA? G G/F# Em7 But it's eye of newt and it's tounge of bat G G/F# Em7 As he walks around town with his mum's black cat G G/F# Em7 And if you'd been through all he's been through G G/F# Em7 Then you'd turn white and you'd frown too G G/F# Em7 He's the bravest boy behind the frown C G D G Em7 Of a lonely goth in a country town C G D G Em7 He's evoked the wrath of a country town C G D G Em7 He's the only one for miles around F#m G It's a shearing town F#m Or a mining town G D A quite little country town D means: e|-------2-0--- b|-----3-----3- g|-0h2--------- d|------------- a|------------- E|------------- Tabbed: Damien Murtagh
