Subject: TAB: Blank Generation by Richard Hell

This song is very very similar to the Stray Cats' "Stray Cat Strut" in 
pacing and feel, though this is played with a distortion guitar. The 
lyric pacing is weird--if you have the album, you might want to listen 
to it a few times before you attempt to sing it.

There is an intro which is lead; I don't play lead, and I couldn't even 
figure out the chords. If anybody knows them, let me know. The main part 
of the song seems to be power strummed chords. Anyway, here it is...

Richard Hell and the Voidoids--Blank Generation

I was sayin' let me out of here
Em    D             C      B

Before I was even born
            Em    D

It's such a gamble when you get a face
            C               B

It's fascinatin' to observe what the mirror does
Em        D           C              B

But when I die it's to the wall that I set my face
    Em     D               C           B

Chorus: I belong to the blank generation, and
	Em  D           C     B

I can take it or leave it each time, well
Em    D          C             B

I belong to the ----- generation
Em  D                 C   B

I can take it or leave it each time
Em    B7         Em            Em

Oooo oooo oooo oooo(same notes as chords)
Em   D    C    B

Triangles falling at the window as the doctor cursed
Em        D              C             B

He was a cartoon, long forsaken by the public eye
Em       D                C            B

The nurse adjusted her garters as I breathed my first
Em          D          C            B

The doctor grabbed my throat and said, "God's consolation prize!"
Em         D                     C                 B


Oooo oooo oooo oooo(same notes as chords)
Em   D    C    B


To hold the TV to my lips, the air so packed with cash
Em          D        C                B

Then carry it up flights of stairs and drop it in your vacant--lot 
Em                D                    C                       B

Then lose my train of thought and fall into your arms' tracks
Em           D                    C                    B

And hold beneath my eyelids every passing thought
Em         D                C     B


CHORUS (quietly)

Oooo oooo oooo oooo
Em   D    C    B

Oooo oooo oooo oooo
Em   D    C    B

Waah oooooooo
B7   Em (pick strings)
