Gavin by Pain

Chords with lyrics

Album: Wonderful Beef (1997)

Note: I like to play this song with suspended second chords. It kind of gives it a
dreamy, singer-songwriter-ish sound... but then again, that's not what most people reading
this tab are looking for, I assume.

It's not the number of times he tried to
Chord diagramD MajorD            Chord diagramA augmentedA           Chord diagramG+G
But the one time that he did.
Chord diagramD MajorD            Chord diagramA augmentedA          Chord diagramG+G               Chord diagramA augmentedA
I once told him to beware of things to come,
Chord diagramD MajorD            Chord diagramA augmentedA                  Chord diagramG+G
But I was the one who should be scared.
Chord diagramD MajorD            Chord diagramA augmentedA                  Chord diagramG+G         Chord diagramA augmentedA
All the police and handcuffs didn't bother him.
Chord diagramD MajorD            Chord diagramA augmentedA                  Chord diagramG+G
He's sure that God would understand.
Chord diagramD MajorD            Chord diagramA augmentedA                  Chord diagramG+G         Chord diagramA augmentedA
Oh, the killings in the convent hall.
Chord diagramD MajorD            Chord diagramA augmentedA                  Chord diagramG+G
The cleaning bill was outrageous.

For all the times he tried to do it
Chord diagramD MajorD            Chord diagramA augmentedA                  Chord diagramG+G
Well he finally got it right.
Chord diagramD MajorD            Chord diagramA augmentedA                  Chord diagramG+G         Chord diagramA augmentedA
All the kids in school just think of Gavin
             Chord diagramD MajorD                  Chord diagramG+G
As a folk hero because school's let out all day.

Sister Mary's yardstick once broke on Gavin's hand,

But now Gavin's set things right.
