Subject: Snookeroo by Ringo Starr

             Written by Bernie Taupin and Elton John
      Taken from the album "Goodnight Vienna" by Ringo Starr
                Transcribed by Petteri Jarvinen

D                 A
I was born in the north of England
      Bm                  G
I was raised in a working town
  D                          A
I broke all the rules when I went to school
        Bm                       G
But the teachers couldn't pin me down
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/r/ringo_starr/snookeroo_crd.html ]
D                  A
I tried to make my parents proud
    Bm                    G
By adapting to the social powers
   D                      A
Oh pigs will fly, and the earth will fry
          Bm                  G
When they get me doing honest hours

Snookeroo, Snookeroo
Daddy's going on the booze
Mother used to cut my hair
And sister used to make the news

Oh it was two rooms up and two rooms down
And we were sentenced by the wrecking crane
      D           G      Bm
I was born on the eve of Halloween
    G                     A              D
And Snookeroo, Snookeroo, Snookeroo's my name.

D                 A
I need someone to cook for me
    Bm               G
And turn me loose at night
D                            A
I could spend my life with a factory girl
           Bm                G
'Cause the factory girl's my type

D                  A
I hear them gossip on the street
Bm                       G
Most of what they say is true
   D                     A
Oh don't you know that I hear them say
                Bm                  G
There goes that lazy, no-good Snookeroo

(Repeat chorus)
