Chords for "Little Bit Of Emotion"
From: Jim Smart Date: Tue, 7 May 1996 03:52:53 -0400 Little Bit Of Emotion Written by Ray Davies Chords transcribed by Jim Smart Notes: Very simple, effective ballad. I'm not sure how often to play a passing D chord before going back to G; it is written in occasionally. Use it as you will. G D See all the people C D With hatred in their eyes G D I can't help thinking that C D It's only a disguise G D Cause underneath that core Em There's got to be more C D Than what we realize G Maybe they're scared D C D To let the inside out G Maybe they're afraid to D C D Show what they're all about G D Em So they put on a heavy front and hope that no one else C D Can work them out Em C D So they put on all the heaviness Em C D But it's only illusion heaviness Em C D Can't you see-ee They're scared to G D C D Show a little bit of emotion G D C D A little bit of real emotion G D Em In case a little bit of emotion C D Gives them away G D C D Look at that lady dancing around with no clothes G D She'll give you all her body C D That's if you've got the dough G She'll let you see most D Em Anything but there's one thing C D That she'll never show G D C And that's a little bit of real emotion G D C A little bit of true emotion G D Em In case a little bit of emotion C D Gives her away Em C D But it's a shame she's acting that way Em C D Somehow she's gotta get through every day Em C D And the only way-ay Is not to G D C D show one little bit of emotion G D C D A little bit of true emotion G D Em C D In case a little bit of emotion gives her away C People learn their lines Bm And they act out their part Am Then they talk on cue G But it's got no heart C It's all on the surface Bm And it's all contrived Am They're scared to come out C D Somehow they've got to survive G Look at that looney D C D With a smile on his face G He knows no shame D C D And feels no disgrace G D He's got a look in his eyes Em C D That makes it seem that he's from outer space G D C D Maybe that looney knows what it's all about G D C D He's got something to say but he can't spit it out G D Em C D He's unco-ordinated so we shut him out G D C D In case he shows a little bit of emotion G D C A little bit of real emotion G D Em We're afraid to see a bit of emotion C D So we walk away G D C D Show a little bit of real emotion G D C D Show a little bit of emotion G D Em We're afraid to see a bit of emotion C D (hold) So we walk away Note: I haven't actualy heard this song in over ten years. I am writing it from memory, so forgive me if it goes astray. Album this song can be found on: Low Budget
Date: April 12, 1997 2:41 PM From: Jim Smart This may be a first: I'd like to fix my own chord posting! Now that I've heard this song again, I believe we should all be adding a B7 in certain places, like this: G B7 Em We're afraid to see a bit of emotion C D (hold) So we walk away Also, when the lead comes in, the whole song changes key, but you don't have to play it that way.
