Baptist Hospital (Boo Hewerdine)
--------------------------------

This is the title track of Boo Hewerdine's third album.

It's played in G (capo at 5), but all the following is written as though
played in D (at the nut).

    ping pong  on   a    ta--ble  bouncing    that's exactly    how I'm
feeling
I'm tired of  staring    at the   floor  coz you've been staring at the
ceiling


[Chorus]:

    G          A            D
If there is no laughter in  heaven
     G       D       G(II)    D       G(II)   D
then I don't want to go,      I don't want to go


        D   .   Ds4   .   Ds9 .  D       Ds9                        D
There's nothing quite as  funny-sad as   Christmas day  a    launderette
    but I'll be fine, I'll be   OK       my paper hat,    dream cigarette


[Chorus]

  I saw the thing I fear the most      outside the Baptist Hospital
halfway be-tween  a bum  and ghost    my future is       indelible

[Chorus] x 2

(second time played arpeggiated, like everything after the * in the
instrumental)
