WHISTLING CANNONBALLS                 SHANE NICHOLSON / PAUL KELLY
CAPO 1st Fret
C
VERSE 1:
         C
THERE'S PICTURES OF HER MOTHER ON THE WALL
                                             F
AND WHEN SHE SPEAKS, SHE DON'T LOOK AT ME AT ALL
     F                               C
SHE LIKES TO CHECK THE TIME NOW AND THEN
    G                               C
AND I START WHISTLING CANNONBALLS AGAIN
VERSE 2:
    C
HER OLD MAN SLEEPS TILL DARK EVERY DAY
                                        F
THEN SHE CLEANS AND PUTS THE ASHTRAYS AWAY
    F                              Am
I THINK THAT I COULD MAKE HER MY FRIEND
    G                                 C
BUT I'VE BEEN WHISTLING CANNONBALLS AGAIN

CHORUS:
    F                                  C
AND AS SHE PULLS HER SKIRT ABOVE HER KNEES
              G                             C
I'M THINKING BAD THINGS ALWAYS  COME  IN THREES
           F                         C    F
AND SO IT FINISHED RIGHT WHERE IT BEGAN
    F                 G            C
AND I WENT WHISTLING CANNONBALLS AGAIN

VERSE 1:
  C
FRAGILE  LIKE A TEACUP IN A STORM
                                     F
SWEET AND TENDER LIKE A NURSE IN UNIFORM
    F                       C
BUT EVERY TIME I HERE A VIOLIN
     G                               C
THEN I START WHISTLING CANNONBALLS AGAIN

VERSE 2:
      
       C
SO SHE CURLED UP LIKE A CAT IN THE CHAIR
                                        F
WITH HER FINGERS DRAWING CIRCLES IN THE AIR
  F                                   Am
STARED ME DOWN AND SAID "LETS NOT PRETEND
      G                                  C
THAT YOU WEREN'T WHISTLING CANNONBALLS AGAIN

CHORUS:
        F                                 C
AND WITHOUT A BREATH SHE MADE IT PRETTY CLEAR
                G                      C
THAT I SHOULD CLOSE THE DOOR AND DISAPPEAR
      F                             C     F
IT'S BEEN SO LONG I DON'T REMEMBER WHEN 
    F                G            C
I STARTED WHISTLING CANNONBALLS AGAIN
      F                              C    F
IT'S BEEN SO LONG I DON'T REMEMBER WHEN
     F                G            C
WE STARTED WHISTLING CANNONBALLS AGAIN
