Chords for "A Well Respected Man"
From: Harlan L Thompson A WELL RESPECTED MAN- The Kinks G C C/B Am C C/B Am Cos he gets up in the morning and he goes to work at nine C C/B Am C C/B Am And he comes back home at five thirty, gets the same train every time C C/B Am C C/B Am Cos his world is built on punctuality it never fails CHORUS: C C/B Am C C/B Am Cos he's oh so good, and he's oh so fine C C/B Am C C/B Am And he's oh so healthy in his body and his mind F Em He's a well respected man about town F D G G/C G Doing the best things so conservatively And his mother goes to meetings while his father pulls the maid And she stirs the tea with councilors while discussing foreign trade And she passes looks as well as Bill's at every suave young man ...CHORUS And he likes his own backyard and he likes his fags the best Cos he's better than the rest and his own sweat smells the best And he hope to grab his father's loot when pater passes on ...CHORUS And he plays at stocks and shares, and he goes to the regatta He adores the girl next door cos he's dying to get at her But his mother knows the best about the matrimonial stakes ...CHORUS NOTE: As with many Kinks songs, I don't know all the words. Can anyone fill in the mystery spots? (originally done in 1965. On Greatest Hits) (sent by Harlan)
