The Killing of Georgie (Part I and II)

Rod_Stewart

C Em
In these days of changing ways, so called liberated days
F C
A story comes to mind of a friend of mine...
C Em
Georgie boy was gay I guess, nothin' more or nothin' less
F C
The kindest guy I ever knew...
C Em
His mother's tears fell in vain, the afternoon George tried to explain
F C
That he needed love like all the rest
C Em
Pa said there must be a mistake, how can my son not be straight
F C
After all I've said and done for him?
C Em
Do do, da do do, da do do doo, do do, da do do, da do do doo
F C
Do do, da do do, da do do doo, doo do
 
C Em
Leavin' home on a Greyhound bus, cast out by the ones he loves
F C
A victim of these gay days it seems
Chorus
C Em
Georgie went to New York town, where he quickly settled down
F C
And soon became the toast of the great white way
C Em
Accepted by Manhattan's elite, in all the places that were chic
F C
No party was complete without George
C Em
Along the boulevards he'd cruise, and all the old queens blew a fuse
F C
Everybody loved Georgie boy
Chorus
C Em
The last time I saw George alive, was in the summer of seventy-five
F C
He said he was in love I said I'm pleased
C Em
George attended the opening night, of another Broadway hype
F C
but split before the final curtain fell
C Em
Deciding to take a short cut home, arm in arm they meant no wrong
F C
A gentle breeze blew down Fifth Avenue
Chorus
C Em
Out of a darkened side street came, a New Jersey gang with just one aim
F C
To roll some innocent passer-by
C Em
There ensued a fearful fight, screams rang out in the night
F C
Georgie's head hit a sidewalk cornerstone
C Em
A leather kid, a switchblade knife, he did not intend to take his life
F C
He just pushed his luck a little too far that night
C Em
The sight of blood dispersed the gang, a crowd gathered, the police came
F C
An ambulance screamed to a halt on Fifty-third and Third
 
C Em
Georgie's life ended there, but I ask who really cares?
F C
George once said to me and I quote
C Em
He said "Never wait or hesitate, Get in kid, before it's too late
F C
You may never get another chance
C Em
'Cos youth's a mask but it don't last, live it long and live it fast"
F C
Georgie was a friend of mine
 
Oh Georgie stay, don't go away Georgie please stay you take our breath away 
Oh Georgie stay, don't go away Georgie please stay you take our breath away 
Oh Georgie stay, don't go away Georgie, Georgie please stay you take our breath away 
Oh Georgie stay...
