The Ribs Of A Broken Umbrella Chords - Bell X1




Intro: C   F

C
She was only just a girl in a picture
                                       F
But he thought 'If I can only make her smile

Then she'd be mine'
C
He'd folded it, refolded it so many times,
                                     F
He'd already lost some of her to the creases

Precious pieces
C
He wondered how close he'd ever been to her,
                                       F
In this ebb and flow of the distance between us

Maybe she got the same bus
C
And he left a trail of string wherever he went
                                       F
When he was sleeping, he tied it to his toe

If she crossed it then he'd know


       G
But he knew
               F
That all was unravelling
            G
And he was bare
               F                G
Stripped of his skin
                               F
Like the ribs of a broken umbrella
                   C
Sticking out of a bin

Do do do do do-do do do do do do-do
F
Do do do do do-do do do do do do-do

   C
He'd pull his collar up against the wind,
                                                         F
Against those who said that trying was the first step to failing
                                C
Oh he was railing

And filled with new found purpose and pride,
                                   F
He'd make something of this heady glow

Now where would she go?

              G
But what do I know
             F
Cos all is unravelling
           G
And he was bare
               F             G
Stripped of his skin
                               F
Like the ribs of a broken umbrella
                   C
Sticking out of a bin
                 Am
Do do do do do-do

        G          Dm           C Dm       
G      Am
But he knew how to fix it, Dear Liza, Dear Liza
        G          Dm           C Dm       
G
With time's great elixir, Dear Liza, Dear Liza


C
She was only just a girl in a picture,
                                         F
But he thought 'If I could only make her smile,
                               C
Then she'd be mine'

Oh the thought of being faced with her
                                                 F
Gave him the fear and sometimes in the morning a tent

Oh lord give him strength


        G
Cos he knew
               F
That all was unravelling
            G
And he was bare
                      F
He was stripped of his skin
         G
Yeah he knew
               F
That all was unravelling
            G
And he was bare
                      F                G
He was stripped of his skin
                               F
Like the ribs of a broken umbrella
                   C
Sticking out of a bin
                                F
Do do do do do-do do do do do do-do

Do do do do d-do do do do do do-do.
                   C
Sticking out of a bin
