SHE WAS A PAINTER

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


INTRO:  C - Am - C - Am - etc.  [vamp]


            C                             Am
    I. from fingerpaint to pencils and pastels,
          C                      Am
       to canvases and animation cels.
                  C
       "she was a painter,"
                               Am
       they say when she walks by,
                         C
       as if she already died.
                         Am
       maybe she has - inside.

            C                      Am
   II. from A-B-Cs to stories on a page,
          C                       Am
       to poetry and singing on a stage,
                  C
       "she was a writer,"
                               Am
       they say when she walks by,
                         C
       as if she already died.
                         Am
       maybe she has - inside.


INSTRUMENTAL:   C - C6 - Cmaj7 - C6 - Am (2x)
[like start of verse]


                        C     Dm   C                  G
BRIDGE A:  when did the flame burn out?  where did it go?
           Dm                Am                    G
           who made the wind hasten the end of the show?
                          C   Dm   C              G
           maybe it's her own damn fault, I'm not sure -
           Dm                  Am                 Dm  Am
           giving and giving unto the unliving,
           Dm
           giving and giving
             Am             G
           until she has no more.


            C                                 Am
  III. from holding grandma's hand to kissing boys,
          C                                  Am
       to filling her hope chest with erotic toys,
                  C
       "she was a lover,"
                               Am
       they say when she walks by,
                         C
       as if she already died.
                         Am
       maybe she has - inside.


                        C     Dm   C                  G
BRIDGE B:  when did the flame burn out?  where did it go?
           Dm                Am                    G
           who made the wind hasten the end of the show?
                          C   Dm   C              G
           maybe it's her own damn fault, I'm not sure -
           Dm                  Am                 Dm  Am
           giving and giving unto the unliving,
           Dm
           giving and giving
             Am            G
           until she is no more.
