Artist: Blind Melon
Song: Candy Says
Album: Changes (single)
Trancribed by: Michael MacMillan
This is a great song originally recorded by the velvet underground and written by the great
Lou Reed. It's a simple song. Also, I'm not sure about the end of the chorus and if I am
mistaken, someone please correct me. Any more Blind Melon tabs would also be appreciated.
G D C Em
Candy says, oh I've come to hate my body
C G D (alternate D and Dsus4)
And all that it requires in this world.
G D C Em C
Candy says, oooohhh, I need to know completely
G D (alt)
What other souls discreetly talk about.

G C D (alt)
I'm gonna watch the bluebird fly,
Over my shoulder.
G C D (alt)
And I'm gonna watch him pass me by,
When I'm older.
What do you think I'd see,
If I could walk away from me?
Same chords as above.
Candy says, ooohhh, I hate the quiet places
That cause the smallest taste of what will be. (that's what they told me)
Candy says, ooohh, I hate the big decisions
that cause the endless revisions in my mind.
(that's why I'm doing fine)
Solo G D C Em C G D
That's it. Again it's a great song. Have fun.
