SMALL BLUE THING (Suzanne Vega)

[intro]
E5 D6(9) Cmaj7 D6(9)
Today I am a small blue thing
E5 D6(9) Cmaj7 D6(9)
Like a marble or an eye
E5 D6(9) Cmaj7 D6(9)
With my knees against my mouth, I am perfectly round
E5 D6(9) Cmaj7 D6(9)
I am watching you
F(add#4) G F(add#4) G
I am cold against your skin, you are perfectly
F(add#4) G F(add#4) G
reflected; I am lost inside your pocket, I am lost against your
Am9 Bm7 Cmaj7 Bm7
fingers; I am falling down the stairs, I am skipping on the
Am9 Bm7 Cmaj7 Bm7
sidewalk; I am thrown against the sky, I am raining down in
Am9/G Bm7(4)/A Am9/G Bm7(4)/A
pieces; I am scattering like light, scattering like
Am9/G Bm7(4)/A Am9/G Bm7(4)/A Bm7(4)/A [single note, held]
light, scattering like light
Today I am a small blue thing
Made of china, made of glass
I am cool and smooth and curious, I never blink
I am turning in your hand, turning in your hand
[4 extra bars: E5 D6(9) Cmaj7 D6(9)]
I am cold against your skin, you are perfectly
reflected; I am lost inside your pocket, I am lost against your
fingers; I am falling down the stairs, I am skipping on the
sidewalk; I am thrown against the sky, I am raining down in
pieces; I am scattering like light, scattering like
light, scattering like light
Today I am a small blue thing
Like a marble or an eye
I am cool and smooth and curious, I never blink
I am turning in your hand, turning in your
E5 D6(9) Cmaj7 D6(9)
hand; turning in your hand, small blue
E5 D6(9) Cmaj7 D6(9)
thing; turning in your hand
E5 D6(9) Cmaj7 D6(9) E5.
Turning in your hand

TAB: Each "-" represents a 1/16 note. So 16 "-" means a 4/4-bar.
Since (nearly) every bar begins with a new chord, a bar begins were
a "[" is.
The bass line is not fully experienced...but maybe someone else can do
it.
Between the guit. and bass tab there are signs like "mp", "f" - which
means the volume - and at the end "rit." which means to slow down
the tempo.
I tried to put the lyrics in the right bar...but you'll see...
Tempo: 132
