Slaughtered, Gutted and Heartbroken (Difford/Tilbrook)
 
Intro:   A    /         B   /      E    /     /    /   (4X)

             A      B         E
Slaughtered, gutted and heart-broken
        A      B     E  
With no spirit or no soul
       A       B         E              
My e - motions have been stolen
         A       B         E
Love has left me with this hole
       A         B         E
Now my heart's a deep dark cavern
      A7        G#7        C#m  
Empti-ness is   all   I    feel
        A       B        E
I'm the pig she tried to fatten
        A     B     E
And now all I do is squeal
    B      A        E
But things could be worse
                B    A       E
Things could be very bad for me
B     A      E
O' my dear I find myself 
         C#m             E<                E   A
A stitch short of a tape-stry


A    /         B    /     E    /      /     /  (2X)

         A      B        E
Patients on the verge of breaking 
            A        B         E
I'm kicking cans a - round the street
       A          B    E
Like a bad cold I need shaking
       A      B      E
Like a fool I had to cheat
       A      B      E
But to me she was an angel
      A7       G#7      C#m
And I went and let  her down
       A        B      E
The at-traction was so fatal  
         A         B        E
That she kicked me from her cloud
      
    B      A        E
But things could be worse
                B    A       E
Things could be very bad for me
B     A      E
O' my dear I find myself 
         C#m               E<                E   A
A stitch short of a tape-stry

A     /         B       /          E     /       /      /  ( 8X ad lib)

    A         B               E
The light was on there in her window
          A      B      E
I saw her shadow moving around
  A        B        E
I tried to stand on tip toes
       A        B          E
Hoping that she might look down
  A         B      E
I wanted so bad to call her
      A7     G#7      C#m
But I had to walk a - way
             A      B          E
Slaughtered, gutted and  heart-broken
        A       B        E
Another diamond down the drain

Refrain: 2X

    B      A        E
But things could be worse
                B    A       E
Things could be very bad for me
B     A      E
O' my dear I find myself 
         C#m               E<                E   A
A stitch short of a tape-stry


A     /      B     /     E     /      /    / (Repeat and fade, ad lib) 

*Notes: The verse can be played staccato
 I'm not sure if  'a stitch short...' are the right chord. Feel free to make corrections
