Blister In The Sun

Words & Music:

Violent Femmes


Intro:  [tabbed by Darrell Mock]








G          C       G          C     G         C         G

When I'm a-walkin' I strut my stuff, then I'm so strung out.

I'm high as a kite, I just might stop to check you out.



          Em         C

Let me go on, like a blister in the sun.

          Em      C                       D

Let me go on, big hands I know youÕre the one.


Body beats, I stain my sheets.  I donÕt even know why.

My girlfriend, sheÕs at the end.  She is starting to cry.
