I have a very special edition of Lisa’s Weekly Guitarmagedon. I present to you two brilliant songs by the Philosopher-Poet extraordinaire, David Brent: “Spaceman” and “Freelove Freeway”. The dramatic interlude is also included. Sweet.
4/4 ||: Dadd9 – Cmajadd9 – | Gadd6/B – Cadd9 – :||
Spaceman came down to answer some things,
The world gathered round from paupers to kings,
I’ll answer your questions,
I’ll answer them true,
I’ll show the way you know what to do,
Who is wrong and who is right?
Yellow, brown, black or white?
The spaceman he answered “You’ll no longer mind,
I’ve opened your eyes, you’re now colour blind”.
|| C – G – || Am – – – ||
She’s the serpent who guards the gates of Hell…
4/4 ||: C – F – | Am – G – :||
Pretty girl on the hood of a cadillac, yeah
She’s broken down on Freeway 9.
I take a look, I get her engine started, and
leave her purring and I roll on by. Bye, bye
Free love on the freelove freeway, the
Love is free and the freeway’s long, I got some
Hot love on the hot love highway, ain’t
Going home ’cause my baby’s gone (she’s gone)
A long time later I see a cowboy crying
“Hey buddy, what can I do?”
He says, “I lived a good life, had about a thousand women,”
I said, “Why the tears?”, he says, ” ‘ Cause none of them was you”.
Chorus x 2
She’s gone yeah, my baby’s gone, she’s gone yeah, gone away,
The Ultimate Experience: Play along with David Brent. NB. Ricky’s guitar is tuned down a half step.
