Donkey Talk (Difford/Tilbrook)
INTRO
3(G#m  D#m)
 
(Chorus):

Bm           E

Donkey talk 

               Bm          E

I can hear the donkey talk 

                  Em 


Words chained out in a line
                        
F#M             Am  G    F  


Loads of reason not much rhyme

Em              Am    G F  


Finger drumming beats behind 

Em               Am G   C 


Donkey talk most of the time 


Bm 


The conversation peters out 

       E 


So you stare down at your shoes   

                         D


There's not much more to talk about  

         Bm      A


When the silence is confused 

         G 


Then our eyes suddenly meet 

       C               D 


And we choose to look away 

                  E
That's just where we are today 


((Chorus))


Bm 


There's no sense in hanging round 

       E 


But we stand there all the same  

                  D 


You find a verb I pluck a noun 

       Bm       A 


As the patience starts to strain 

         G 


Then our words suddenly clash 

              C          D 


As if there's so much to say  

            E


That's just where we are today

((Chorus))

F                       C/E  


We used to stay up all night  

         Dm       G             C


With our eyes all bloodshot and wonky 

         Cm 


We would hold each other tight  

             Dm        G     C


And talk the back legs off a donkey  

            G


But now I'm wearing its hat  

         Dm                   Fm
We can't even laugh at that

((Chorus))

3(G#m  D#m)


Bm 


The conversation peters out 

       E 


So you stare down at your shoes   

                         D           E  D
There's not much more to talk about  

        E        D                   E  D


There's not much more to talk about
