Bruised Black And Blue Chords

   
From John Bramwell's pre-I Am Kloot days.

Released originally in 1989 as Johnny Dangerously, on the EP 'You, Me And The Alarm Clock'. 

Fabled among I Am Kloot fans 'You, Me And The Alarm Clock' was re-released on iTunes in 2012. 

And 'Black And Blue' is still played live on occasion! 

Standard tuning, capo 4


Verse 1
=======

C   D7   G                     D/F            E7
            Lights are shining all round this world
Am               /G               C            D
   You want them all but what you want is this girl
G                                    D/F         E7
   You can stick those rules they're just second best
Am               /G              C           D
   They give you so much but you end up with less
G                                    D/F     E7
   They give you money when what you need is love
Am              /G               C          D
   It makes you smile pretending it's all e-nough
G                        D/F               E7
   See the world now its bruised black and blue
Am             /G              C  D/F#    G
   You want it all but all that I want is you


Refrain 1
=========

C                 D            G
   So give up the chance to be true
   F        E7         Am        /G
We all wind up like we knew we'd do 
C          D7        G    C   D7
   Bruised black and blue


Verse 2
=======
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/i/i_am_kloot/bruised_black_and_blue_crd_ver_2.html ]
G                      D/F         E7
   Dream for to-morrow live for to-day
Am         /G                 C          D
   Someone somewhere made you throw it a-way
G                        D/F         E7
   Spin to the bottom re-turn to the top
Am              /G                C         D
   Lift up your eyes as if you're nearer to God
G                          D/F          E7
   So get your bicycle and go earn your keep
           Am           /G               C              D
There'll be   9 million cyclists here by this time next week
G                         D/F               E7
   See the world now it's bruised black and blue
Am             /G              C  D/F#    G
   You want it all but all that I want is you


Refrain 2
=========

C                 D            G
   So give up the chance to be true
   F        E7         Am        /G
We all wind up like we knew we'd do 
C          D7        G
   Bruised black and blue

Out
=== 

C                D            G
   So many words hard but true
   F        E7         Am        /G
We all wind up like we knew we'd do
C          D7        G
   Bruised black and blue
C          D7        G
   Bruised black and blue
C          D7        G
   Bruised black and blue
