Subject: CRD: Candy Says by The Velvet Underground
Here is a more complete chord transcription for this song. I've formatted
the chords to the lyrics (as well as I could), and included all the words.
Thanks to Citizen Kane for the original posting
from which I took the chords.
This is one of the best VU songs (in my humble opinion). It's the first
track on their third album, "The Velvet Underground"; and is written (of
course) by Lou Reed. A "closet mix" version is also available on the new VU
box set. Enjoy.
Candy Says: The Velvet Underground
VERSE 1:
D F#m F B
Candy says, I've come to hate my body,
Em A
and all that it requires
D A
in this world.
D F#m F B
Candy says, I'd like to know completely,
Em A
what other souls discreetly
D A
talk about.
CHORUS:
D G E
I'm gonna watch the blue birds fly,
A
over my shoulder.
D G E
I'm gonna watch them pass me by,
A
maybe when I'm older.
C G
What do you think I'd see,
A C
if I could walk away from me? (4 beat pause)
VERSE 2: (same chords as verse 1)
Candy says, I hate the quite places,
that cause the smallest taste
of what will be.
Candy says, I hate the big descisions,
that cause endless revisions
in my mind.
CHORUS (again)
EXTRO:
D (8 bts) G (8 bts)
..........Doo, Doo, Whaa.........
D G
Doo.......Doo, Doo, Whaa......... (x4)
(end on)
D
Doo...
It is kind of difficult to convey where exactly the chords change, as they
don't line up perfectly with the words. Every chord lasts for 4 beats and
the words are placed over them. There is also a lot of chord picking that
goes on that I have no clue how to play. And that's it...
