    Psycho Killer

    Talking Heads

     

    Intro (bass plays first two progressions, then drums join for next two, then full band for final two):

     

    / Am - - -/ - - - G /x6

     

    / Am - - -/ - - - G /

     I can’t seem to face up to the facts

    / Am - - -/ - - - G /

    I’m tense and nervous and I can’t relax

    / Am - - -/ - - - G /

    I can’t sleep ‘cause my bed’s on fire

    / Am - - -/ - - - G /

    Don’t touch me I’m a real live wire

     

    Chorus:

    F                    G                            Am (2)

        Psycho killer, Qu'est-ce que c'est?  Fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa far, better

    F                   G                          C (2)

        Run run run run run run run away

    F                    G                            Am (2)

        Psycho killer, Qu'est-ce que c'est?  Fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa far, better

    F                   G                          C (2)

        Run run run run run run run away  oh, oh, oh,

    F    G

    oh, ayayayayay!

     

    / Am - - -/ - - - G /x2

     

    / Am - - -/ - - - G /

    You start a conversation, you can’t even finish it.

    / Am - - -/ - - - G /

    You’re talkin’ a lot, but you’re not saying anything.

    / Am - - -/ - - - G /

    When I have nothing to say, my lips are sealed.

    / Am - - -/ - - - G /

    Say something once, why say it again?

     

    Chorus

     

    Bridge:

    Bm (2)                         G (2)

       Ce que j'ai fait ce soir-là,

    Bm (2)                          G (2)

       Ce qu'elle a dit ce soir-là'

    A (2)                           G (2)

      Réalisant mon espoir, Je me lance vers la gloire,

    / A - - -/ - - - G /

    OK?  

     

    / A - - -/ - - - G /

    Ayayayayayayayayayayayaya!

    / A - - -/ - - - G /

    We are vain and we are blind

    / A - - -/ - - - G /

    I hate people when they’re not polite

     

    Chorus

     

    jam on this progression:

    / Am - - -/ - - - G /

     

    End on A
