Except Her Heart

Lyrics&Music ©Brad Spurgeon

A x2 Amaj7
The girl went walkin’
G D dsus4 etc.
She told him he was talkin’
And he knew
Everything she ever knew

She wore her clothes gently
Flashed her rings lightly
Let down her hair
And her bracelets too

The lady went off in
Another tramp often
From place to place
And home to home

She wore her smile lightly
Cooked in style tightly
Proffered everything
She owned to him

Bm
Except her heart
G
Except her heart
D
Except her heart
A
Except her heart
Bm
Except her heart
G D A………..


A x2 Amaj7
She drew him in closely
Wrapped him up tightly
And told him
They had to get a move on

She pulled him into her
Fed him full for them
Gave all they needed
Or she had for now

The stories that she made up
If they really were made up
They shook him to the soul
And he broke right down

Then he went and closed off
Kept the doors shut tight
Locked her right out
Cause she gave everything

Bm
Except her heart
G
Except her heart
D
Except her heart
A
Except her heart
Bm
Except her heart
G D A………..

One day she found
She was too old to be
As charming as she always
Wanted them to see

She picked up her bags
Threw ‘em on her back
And headed down to
The railroad track

He caught her in his eye
As he rolled by
Goin’ to the office
His heart so dry

There was nowhere to go
No homes to find
No bells to ring
Cause she gave everything

Bm
Except her heart
G
Except her heart
D
Except her heart
A
Except her heart

about

Brad Spurgeon Paris, France

In 2008, I returned to performing music in public after nearly a 30-year break, after several musician friends encouraged me to try some open mics again. I got addicted, and since then I have played in open mics and open jam sessions in dozens of countries and on all continents except Africa (where I did actually once live and play) and Antarctica. ... more
