Notes about this song:

  • (none)
Intro: Dm                              
Dm                C                    
You're still the child                 
    Am         F                       
Suspended in space                     
Dm     C       Am   [Am7  Am6+  Dm]    
Crying out to you                      
Dm       C          Am           F     
Beckons you to yet another fine place  
           Dm                 D        
Where the trials of life are few       
D                  G                   
Who says you are coming on             
D                   G                  
Don't think you're living long         
D           A                          
They won't remember you                
D            G  Em  A      D    Dm     
The rent is always due.                
The cloudy men                         
Who take their place                   
And stand in line                      
They do                                
Know not of                            
The satin face                         
That separates them from you           
Just put your blue jeans on            
Grab your guitar and write a song      
Don't think I'm kidding you            
The rent is always due.                

She rides a broom         
With gold-plated straw    
And flutters around       
And dies                  
The Brylcream fools       
Just standing on          
Digesting all their lives 
But then you walk along   
And she starts coming on  
Beneath her melting broom 
The rent is always due.
