THE BIG BLACK SMOKE- The Kinks

Em
Em       Em/D#    Em/D     Em/Db   Em/C
She was sick and tired of country life
                  Em
A little country home, a little country home
                     B Bsus4 B Bsus4 B
Made her blood run cold
          Am
Now her mother pines her heart away
                  G           D         Em
Looking for her child in the big black smoke
 G       D        Em   Em/D# Em/D Em/Db 
In the big black smoke


Frailest, purest girl the world has seen
According to her ma, according to her pa
And everybody said
That she knew no sin and did no wrong
Till she walked the streets of the big black smoke
Of the big black smoke

BRIDGE:
           B
Well she slept in cafes and coffee bars and bowling alleys
                     Em G D
And every penny she had
      G                             B
Was spent on purple hearts and cigarettes


Ah, she took all her pretty coloured clothes
Ran away from home, the boy next door
For a boy named Joe
And he took the money for the rent
Tried to drag her down in the big black smoke
In the big black smoke

  G      D          Em
(In the big black smoke) In the big black smoke
G        D          Em                      D C D
(In the big black smoke) In the big black smoooooke
 D  C  D     D  C  D    D  C  D   D C D  D C D
Smoooooke, smoooooke, smoooooke, oh oh, oh oh

About the artist behind The Big Black Smoke Chords:

The Kinks were an English pop/rock group formed in 1963, and categorised as a British Invasion band, along with the other members of the so-called Big Four (The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and The Who). Despite being less commercially successful than these three contemporaries, mostly because of a four-year ban from the United States in the mid-to-late 1960s, the Kinks are cited among them as one of the most important and influential rock bands of all time and have 12 top 40 hits in America.[1]

The band's early hard-driving singles set a standard in the mid-1960s for rock and roll, while albums such as Face to Face,[2] Something Else, The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society, Arthur and Muswell Hillbillies are highly regarded by fans, critics, and peers, and are considered amongst the most influential recordings of the era.[3]
