Coney Island Sideshow Freak Girl

March 6th, 2011 by Steve

Every once in a while I’ll write & record my own song. This one’s dedicated to all the freaks & geeks out there.

(NC)    E
She can hammer a spike right up her nose
       A              E
Decked out in fishnet pantyhose
                            C#m
And my mom would freak if I chose
            F#m    B
To take her home
    E
She sleeps on a bed of rusty nails
A                     E
Rumour has it she was born with a tail
She puts the wind in my sail

    C#m           F#m    B
Wherever I should roam


C#m                 B
She's got eyes like diamonds
      E             A
And a tattoo on her face
      C#m          E
She'd be hard to replace
           B       B7
To say the least


         E                     C#m
She's my Coney Island sideshow freak girl
         E            A
She's my Coney Island freak
   E                     C#m
My Coney Island sideshow freak girl
      E
So to speak

She found her 9 to 5 to be a pain in the a**
           A                  E
So now she jumps for joy upon broken glass
                             C#m
And after the show I help to pick
           F#m     B
The pieces out
     E
Then after a Nathan's Famous meal
          A                    E
We take a spin together on the Wonder Wheel    
And when we reach the top

         C#m            F#m    B
You know what it's all about


C#m                 B
She's got eyes like diamonds
        E               A
And she fills me with desire
         C#m                  E
When she lights her tongue on fire
          B       B7
Don't you know


         E                     C#m
She's my Coney Island sideshow freak girl
         E            A
She's my Coney Island freak
   E                     B
My Coney Island sideshow freak girl
      E
So to speak

C#m   |E   |A B |


C#m                 B
She's got eyes like diamonds
    E                A
And each night after dark
   C#m                  E
We stroll the amusement park
        B      B7
Hand in hand


         E                     C#m
She's my Coney Island sideshow freak girl
         E            A
She's my Coney Island freak
   E                     B
My Coney Island sideshow freak girl
      E
So to speak
                               C#m
She's my Coney Island sideshow freak girl
         E            A
She's my Coney Island freak
   E                     B
My Coney Island sideshow freak girl
      E
So to speak

    Thanks Greg – Been a while indeed. Thanks for the support. Don’t know about things never changing, though. Seems like everything’s in a constant state of flux from my perspective.
