FRIENDS YOU USED TO KNOW

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter



         INTRO:  Bm


                 Bm
             I.  when you walked in the room,
                 G
                 dressed a little weird,
                 E/G#         A
                 hostility appeared.


                 Bm
            II.  when you took off your mask,
                 G
                 some people turned and ran.
                 E/G#                  A
                 you were the Elephant Man.


                 C                 Em                  Am    G
      CHORUS A:  now where are the friends you used to know?
                 Dm                C#dim               Bm    F#7
                 what good are the friends you used to know?


                 Bm
           III.  and when upon the stage
                 G
                 you played a diff'rent drum,
                 E/G#             A
                 applause did not come.


                 Bm
            IV.  in a yellow world,
                 G
                 you sang a purple song.
                 E/G#          A
                 nobody sang along.


                 /// REPEAT CHORUS A ///


  INSTRUMENTAL:  C - Em - Am - G


                 Bm
             V.  today you're hard to find,
                 G
                 you look so commonplace
                 E/G#             A
                 in your designer face.


                 Bm
            VI.  you're always with your friends,
                 G
                 repeating empty words
                 E/G#             A
                 like vulgar myna birds.


                 /// REPEAT CHORUS A ///


                 C                 Em                  Am    G
      CHORUS B:  now are these the friends you used to know?
                 Dm                C#dim                Bm
                 if these were my friends, I'd let them go.
