RUFUS WAINWRIGHT - "The Art Teacher"
tabbed by Rollo,

This song is a wonderful and blissful touch to a magnificent album from an artist
that's undoubtedly one of the most creative, sincere and well-sounding artists since
God-knows-when. Do it justice!

Ebm            Bb
There I was in uniform 
E              Eb7sus4 Eb7
Looking at the art---- teacher.
B            Gb
I was just a girl then; 
B                  A Abm Gb
Never have I loved since then.

Ebm                  Bb
He was not that much older than I was
       E                      Eb7sus4        Eb7
He had taken our class to the Metropolitan Museum 
B                    Gb
He asked us what our favorite work of art was,
      B                       A Abm Gb
But never could I tell him it was-- him.
Oh, I wish I could tell him --
Oh, I wish I could have told him.

Ebm             Bb
I looked at the Reubens and Rembrandts
E            Eb7sus4      Eb7     B
I liked the John Singer Sergeants 
He told me he liked Turner
 B                  A Abm Gb
Never have I turned since then
    B                      Gb
No, never have I turned to any other man.

Ebm               Bb                                    E
Here I am in this uniform, this pantsuit sort of thing,
                Eb7sus4 Eb7     B
Thinking of the art--- teacher.
I was just a girl then;

Never have I loved since then.

No, never have I loved any other man.
