Venus In Furs Tab

	Venus in furs
	The Velvet Underground & Nico

This is the version I play with my band, DNA. It sounds rather as the original.
This version is in A tune but the original is in C#. So play with capo at 4th fret.
For any suggestion, opinion or info, please contact me: gianluca_pirola@hotmail.com

	Venus in Furs

Main riff

Verse

   	Shiny, shiny, shiny boots of leather
   	Whiplash girl-child in the dark
   	Comes in bells, your servant, don't forsake him
   	Strike, dear mistress, and cure his heart

   	Downy sins of streetlight fancies
   	Chase the costumes she shall wear
   	Ermine furs adorn the imperious
   	Severin, Severin awaits you there

Main riff

Chorus

   	I am tired, I am weary
   	I could sleep for a thousand years
   	A thousand dreams that would awake me
   	Different colors made of tears

Main riff

Verse

   	Kiss the whip of shiny, shiny leather
   	Shiny leather in the dark
   	Tongue of thongs, the belt that does await you
   	Strike, dear mistress, and cure his heart

   	Severin, Severin, speak so slightly
   	Severin, down on your bended knee
   	Taste the whip, in love not given lightly
   	Severin, taste the whip, now plead for me

Main riff

Chorus

   	Shiny, shiny, shiny boots of leather
   	Whiplash girl-child in the dark
   	Comes in bells, your servant, don't forsake him
   	Strike, dear mistress, and cure his heart
