Feel No Shame

(Re-cycled Vinyl Blues version)

 
           



  (Piano intro:  C  Gm  F#dim  G)  C


  C
  Tell the story! 


  C
  Once I knew a love so true 

                       G7
  Every inch an artist 


  An eye for detail, without equal 

                 C 
  And a face for trusting 


  A country girl who knew the world 

                             G7 
  But who's judgment was too reckless 


  And when in turn she showed concern 

                     C
  She wore it like a necklace 


                F7                C7 
  So come on now, have yourself a good time 

F7                     C7 
  Go out and share the blame 

F7                             C
  Do what you should but if it makes you feel good 

   *Eb       Bb      F        F7        C
  I hope you feel no shame 



  C
  She could not see that sympathy 

                    G7 
  Was no recompense 

   
  A gift belated, motivated 

              C
  By a guilty conscience 


  A hand that steals and a hand that heals 

                      G7
  The Anglo-Saxon attitude 


  The hand that feeds the hand that needs 

                C
  Can expect no gratitude 


                F7                C7
  So come on now, have yourself a good time 

F7                     C7 
  Go out and share the blame 

F7                             C 
  Do what you should but if it makes you feel good 

   *Eb       Bb      F  
  I hope you feel no shame 



  (Instr: *Eb   Bb   F  

          *Eb   Bb   F

          *Eb   Bb   F   C)



  C
  Oh, what I'd give once more to live 

                         G7
  In childhood innocence 


  The things men do with words so true 

                                   C
  Would seem much more like common sense 


  An empire built on civilized guilt 

                                G7
  Yet the homeland still is the stranger 


  To my friends who make amends 

                       C
  But in tryin' see no danger 


            F7                C7
  So come on, have yourself a good time 

F7                     C7 
  Go out and share the blame
 
F7                             C  
  Do what you should but if it makes you feel good 

   *Eb       Bb      F  
  I hope you feel no shame 


   *Eb       Bb      F
  I hope you feel no shame 

   *Eb       Bb      F   
  I hope you feel no shame on you 



[Instr]:

   *Eb      Bb      F 



   *Eb      Bb      F 
                   (Yeah... yeah yeah yeah!) 

   *Eb      Bb      F 


   *Eb      Bb      F 


   *Eb               Bb      F
 (I hope, I hope you feel no shame) 


   *Eb      Bb      F




NB:

*During the [*Eb Bb F] chord sequences, (occurring 
where "...I hope you feel no shame.." is sung, 
and during the instrumentals, throughout the song), 
the following guitar and bass bit is played:

           *Guitar/bass bit (tab):


    Eb                      Bb                      F
                                                         
E------------------------------------------------------
B------------------------------------------------------
G-------5---3------------------------------------------
D---------------5---3-----------5---3------------------
A---6-------------------6---------------5---3----------
E---------------------------6-------------------6---1--


(Chords are written above the tablature).
(Also played on bass guitar).


**The C7 and F7 chords throughout the song can be 
played as just C and F respectively, (although it's 
worth experimenting with replacing the C chords with
C7 in some places.).



          I don't think blame should be shared unless rightfully so.
