Rolling Stones – Blinded by Rainbows.


I’ve always always and always loved this song.  A lot of folks who love the Stones don’t even know of this song.  I guess because I’ve always been drawn to rainbows I noticed it.  I love it. 😉  And I know it refers to God and such…I’m not religious that way.  I’m Wiccan.  I believe in the earth and powers that all connect, but I still love this!!!  And really it’s a gorgeous song. lol  Hard to play on guitar though…grrr. 🙂

do you see the light,
is the end in sight,
Em
see the face of Christ,
enter paradise,
C
I doubt it…

Rolling Stones – The Spider And The Fly


Rolling Stones – The Spider And The Fly

E
Sittin’, thinkin’,  sinkin’,  drinkin’
E
Wondering what I’d do when I’m through tonight
A
Smoking, moping maybe just hopin’
E
Some little girl will pass on by
B7                       A7
I don’t wanna be alone but I love my girl at home
E                     E7
I remember what she said

B7       E
She said My, my, my don’t tell lies!
E
Keep fidelity in your head!
A
My,  my,  my,  Don’t tell lies
E
When you’ve done your show hit the bed
B7           (A)
Don’t say Hi, like a spider to a fly

E                   F#m/E      E     B7   E7
Jump right ahead and you’re dead!

Sit up, fed up, low down, go round
Down to the bar at the place I’m at
Sitting, drinking,  superficially thinking
about the rinsed out blond on my left
and then I said Hi, like a spider to a fly
Remembering what my little girl said

(harmonica solo)

She was common, flirty,
She looked about             fifty
I would have run away but I was on my own
She told me later, she was a machine operator
she said she liked the way I held the microphone
she said, My, my, my, like a spider to a fly
Jump right ahead in my web!

(guitar solo and end)

I’m a shadow
But I’m standing up to sing
