THE DIVINE COMEDY: "THE COMPLETE BANKER"

Otra del nuevo disco, que seguramente los amigos sabrán apreciar. Habla de la crisis financiera y define a los banqueros como un cáncer maligno de la sociedad, con un grado de crispación y falta de consenso republicano tal vez inesperadas tratándose del elegante y atildado Mr. Hannon. No todo son Martinis y acosar a damas casadas en esta vida, evidentemente.

Un par de cosas: a) el Dm6 (que sería xx0201) en realidad y en puridad es Dm/B (pruebenlá), posición jodida que me pareció mejor cambiar por aquélla. En el original es Cm/A, una papita, pero los otros acordes son imposibles. b) El Fm del final del estribillo, si pueden, va con bajo en G#, queda chiche chiche. c) El tono original es Dm. d) Va versión en vivo, el Neil solo y su alma y su piano.

 

Intro: |Em - Dm6| x 4

|Em| Can |Dm6| any-|Em| one |Dm6| lend me 
|Em| ten |Dm6| billion |Em| quid? |Dm6|

|Em| We |Dm6| went to |Em| war |Dm6| on the
|Em| floor of |Dm6| the ex-|Em| change |Dm6|
|Am| To |Em7| all of |Am| us |Em7| it was
|Am| just |Em7| a big |Am| game |Em7|

But |Dm| God, I |Am| loved it, |Dm| making a |Am| profit
|Dm| from some-|Am| body's |Dm| loss |Am|
|Dm| I never |C| knew exactly |F| whose money it |D7| was
And |G| I did not |G/F| care as |G/E| long as |G/D| there was

......|C| lots for |C/B| me, the |Am| complete |G7| banker
......In a |C| black Ben-|C/B| tley, |Am| sweet Sa-|G7| mantha

the |Am| numbers |Em7| never lie |Am - Em7|

Well |Dm| maybe |Am| this re-|Dm| cession |Am| 
is a |Dm| blessing |Am| in dis-|Dm| guise |Am|
|Dm| We can build a |C| much much bigger |F| bubble the next |D7| time
And |G| leave the |G/F| rest to |G/E| clean our |G/D| mess up
