Sweet Painted Lady Chords
  G
I'm back on dry land once again 
 
     Gmaj7 
Opportunity awaits me like a rat in the drain 
 
Dm		  G7			  C 
We're all hunting honey with money to burn 
 
       Cm			  GB		           Am  D 
Just a short time to show you the tricks that we've learned 
 
 
       G 
If the boys all behave themselves here 
 
	     Gmaj7 
Well there's pretty young ladies and beer in the rear 
 
Dm		 G7			   C 
You won't need a gutter to sleep in tonight 
 
       Cm			 GB		Am  D 
Oh the prices I charge here will see you alright 
 
 
       G 
So she lays down beside me again 
 
   Gmaj7 
My sweet painted lady, the one with no name 
 
Dm		       G7	     C 
Many have used her and many still do 
 
	  C			   GB		  Am  D 
There's a place in the world for a woman like you 
 
 
   G		  F# 
Oh sweet painted lady 
 
F			   E7 
Seems it's always been the same 
 
Am7		 D 
Getting paid for being laid 
 
G			     Am7 
Guess that's the name of the game 
 
  G		  F# 
Oh sweet painted lady 
 
F			   E7 
Seems it's always been the same 
 
Am7		 D 
Getting paid for being laid 
 
G			     Am7 D 
Guess that's the name of the game 
 
 G  D7 
Oh! 
 
 
		     G 
Forget us we'll have gone very soon 
 
	Gmaj7 
Just forget we ever slept in your rooms 
 
    Dm				 G7	         C 
And we'll leave the smell of the sea in your beds 
 
      Cm		    GB		   Am  D 
Where love's just a job and nothing is said 
 
 
       G 
So she lays down beside me again 
 
   Gmaj7 
My sweet painted lady, the one with no name 
 
Dm		       G7	     C 
Many have used her and many still do

There's a place in the world for a woman like you

About the artist behind Sweet Painted Lady Chords:

Sir Elton Hercules John CBE[1] [2] (born Reginald Kenneth Dwight on 25 March 1947) is an English pop/rock singer, composer and pianist.

In his four-decade career, John has been one of the dominant forces in rock and popular music, especially during the 1970s. He has sold more than 250 million albums[citation needed] and over one hundred million singles,[3] making him one of the most successful artists of all time. He has more than 50 Top 40 hits including seven consecutive #1 U.S. albums, 59 Top 40 singles, 16 Top 10, 4 #2 hits, and nine #1 hits. He has won five Grammy awards and one Academy Award. His success has had a profound impact on popular music and has contributed to the continued popularity of the piano in rock and roll. In 2004, Rolling Stone ranked him #49 on their list of the 100 greatest artists of all time.[4]

Some of the characteristics of John's musical talent include an ability to quickly craft melodies for the lyrics of songwriting partner Bernie Taupin, his former rich tenor (now baritone) voice, his classical and gospel-influenced piano, the aggressive orchestral arrangements of Paul Buckmaster among others and the flamboyant fashions, outlandishly excessive eye glasses, and on-stage showmanship, especially evident during the 1970s.

John was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994. He has been heavily involved in the fight against AIDS since the late 1980s and was knighted in 1998. He entered into a civil partnership with David Furnish on 21 December 2005 and continues to be a champion for the LGBT social movements. On April 9, 2008 Elton John held a benefit concert for the Hillary Clinton Presidential Campaign, and raised $2.5 million.[5]
