Intro: Em



Em      Em7M     Em7      Em6     C7M
She was sick and tired of country life.
                 Em
A little country home, A little country folk,
                   B7
Made her blood run cold.
        A7
Now her mother pines her heart away,
                                       Em
Looking for her child in the big black smoke,
                 Em
In the big black smoke.




Em        Em7M   Em7      Em6       C7M
Frailest, purest girl the world has seen,
                 Em 
According to her Ma, according to her Pa,
              B7
And everybody said,
         A7
That she knew no sin and did no wrong,
                                       Em
Till she walked the streets of the big black smoke,
                 Em
Of the big black smoke.


         B7
Well she slept in caffs and coffee bars and bowling alleys,
                    Em   B7
And every penny she had
    G                              B7
Was spent on purple hearts and cigarettes.



Em       Em7M    Em7    Em6      C7M
She took all her pretty coloured clothes,
                  Em
And ran away from home, And the boy next door
                B7
For a boy named Joe.
       A7
And he took her money for the rent
                                            Em
And tried to drag her down in the big black smoke,
                 Em
In the big black smoke.
                 Em
In the big black smoke.
                 Em
In the big black smoke.

About the artist behind 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]
