SWEET LADY GENEVIEVE		THE KINKS

I think this is really in A, but I play it in G with a capo on the first fret
'cos I like G#
G-D-G-D

G            D       Em
Once under a scarlet sky

C          D
I told you never ending lies

                             C       G
But they were the words of a drunken vagabond

D                           C                       G
Who knew very well he would break your heart before long

C             D
Oh forgive me Genevieve

G           D       Em
If you come back to me

C          D
Sweet Lady Genevieve

D                       C       G
This time I'll give you some security

D                        C     G
And I will make promises I can keep

C                        D
So will you gome back to me

C     D    G                G-D-G-D
Sweet Lady Genevieve

D
Let me rock you, hold you

C              G
Take you in my arms

D
Oh forgive me, please

C                   G                 D
Smile away all your sadness, put your trust in me


If you come back to me
Sweet Lady Genevieve
I'm not the impetuous fool
That you used to know
I know that I used you
And I hurt you so
But that was so long ago
Sweet Lady Genevieve

Love me, hold me
Take me in your arms
Forgive me, please
Smile away all your sadness, put your trust in me

Once under a scarlet sky
I led you on and told you lies
Drank too much whiskey 
On that hot Summer night
I acted so slyly 
'Cos you were acting so shy
Oh, forgive me Genevieve

If you come back to me
Sweet Lady Genevieve
You're not the child 
Who smiled so innocently
And I'm not the rogue 
That I used to be
So will you come back to me
Sweet Lady Genevieve

Sweet Lady Genevieve

Written by Raymond Douglas Davies

As mentioned above, this song is in A. Here's a different take on the
chords. Careful of the unusual time signatures!
