Lost for Words (Difford/Tilbrook)
[intro] Bb7 Ab7



    D

I'm lost for words which is strange for me



F

stretched out like elastic bands,



    D

I'm lost for words and no longer see



F                                        Bb  Eb

why they've slipped right through my hands.



                 Bb    Eb

What a lunch you made



               A      D

with a stew so thick



              A    D

that I was afraid



               B      E

I might chew a brick



                   B  E

then I talked to you



                 Bb       Eb

with my flapping tongue



              Bb

choking on my words.



[ad lib] Bb Gb Bb Db Bb



    D

I'm lost for words in the letters I write



F

smudged with a bleeding pen,



     D

I'm lost for words that I never liked



F

but I want to use my



 D

abandoned words which is strange for me



F

stretched out like elastic bands,



    D

I'm lost for words and no longer see



F                                           Gb G

why they've slipped right through my hands

Notes (for chord patterns, low E is on the LEFT)

=====



Bb chords are just about always barred on the 6th fret.



Intro: 7's are questionable, but they sound good.



Fmaj7 (103210) sounds almost as good as F, anywhere it occurs.



Outro: See intro about 7's.  The sus4 on the last chord is a big

guess; I play it 686866, as opposed to x13141 which sounds more

The-Who-esque (is that a real word?) but lacks the high notes.

Mostly reckoned by Tony Monroe (tmonroe@csua.berkeley.edu) when he was in the shower on Friday, December 13, 1996.
