     Not A Pretty Girl
     tabbed by sam stewart

     F#m: 244222        My version probably isn't any better than
     A:     5776xx         the one already on the internet, but mine
     D:     5577xx         is in a standard tuning (which is easier).
     E:      7799xx        It's pretty close just listen to the cd to
     B:      22444x       the rthym down. (note: slide between barre

     intro:   F#m  A  D  E  2x

     I am not a pretty girl
     A             D                          E
                       that is not what I do
                    F#m                  A
     I ain't no damsel in distess
                        D                     E
     and I don't need to be rescued
                       F#m           A
     so put me down punk
                            D                    E
     wouldn't you prefer a maiden fair

B                                                 D
     isn't there a kitten stuck up a tree somewhere

     I am not an angry girl
     but it seems like I've got everyone fooled
     every time I say something they find hard to hear
     they chalk it up to my anger
     and never to their own fear
     and imagine you're a girl
     just trying to finally come clean
     knowing full well they'd prefer you
     were dirty and smiling

     and I am sorry
     I am not a maiden fair
     and I am not a kitten stuck up a tree somewhere

     solo:   F#m   A   D   E  (2x)

     and generally my generation
     wouldn't be caught dead working for the man
     and generally I agree with them
     trouble is you gotta have youself an alternate plan
     and I have earned my disillusionment
     I have been working all of my life
     and I am a patriot
     I have been fighting the good fight
     and what if there are no damsels in distress
     what if I knew that and I called your bluff?
     don't you think every kitten figures out how to get down
     whether or not you ever show up

     I am not a pretty girl
     I don't want to be a pretty girl
     no I want to be more than a pretty girl
