Pre>crawlin from the wreckage g. parker

Chords: from david windhorst <colorg@mindspring.com>



G d g

Got out really early from the factory

D g

Drivin like a nut in the rain

G dg

Dont think I was actin so hysterically

D

But I didnt see a thing until it came

C

Met the dumb suburbos in the takeaway

D g

Beating up the chinee at the counter

C d g

I put a few inside me at the end of the day

D

I took out my revenge on the revolution counter



G

Crawlin from the wreckage, crawlin from the wreckage

D

Youd think by now at least that half my brain would get the message

G

Crawlin from the wreckage, crawlin from the wreckage

C d c

Into a brand new car



G d g

In walks bud with his exploding nose

D g

Hes been giving it maximum today

G d g

Shouted, how the devil, you in trouble, I suppose

D

All you ever do is run away

C

Gunned up the motor inta hyperdrive

D g

I wasnt gonna take any of that

C dg

Dont get bright ideas about a suicide

D

cause all I ever hear is, zoom, bam, fantastic



G

Crawlin from the wreckage

Crawlin from the wreckage

D

Youd think by now at least that half a brain would get the message

G

Crawlin from the wreckage

Crawlin from the wreckage

C d

Into a brand new car



G7 c7

Crawlin, crawlin, crawlin from the wreckage

G7 c7

Crawlin, crawlin, crawlin from the wreckage

G7 c7

Crawlin, crawlin, crawlin from the wreckage

Crawlin from the wreckage, crawlin from the wreckage

D

Bits of me are scattered in the trees and in the hedges

G d g

Nothin seems to happen that aint happened before

D g

I see it all through flashes of depression

G d g

I drop my drink and hit some people runnin for the door

D

Gotta make some kind of impression

C

cause when Im disconnected from the drivin wheel

D g

C d g

Metal hitting metal is-a all I feel

Everything is good as it poss-i-bul-ly could be

Notes:



In his ny concert with the episodes, gp says:

"heres a song I wrote in 1978 when I was doing the squeezing

Out sparks stuff [applause] but its not, uh,

Its not on that record [laughter] because it really wasnt

Good enough. but I gave it to dave edmunds who turned it into

Something decent. a little thing called crawling from the wreckage.



In brisbane (australia) at the gig in van goghs earlobe

He also said " and its kept me in swimming pools ever since."

Robs version



Crawlin from the wreckage[index]



Corrections or comments to: robert whyte: rob@toadshow.com.au



Got out really early from the factory

Drivin like a nut in the rain

Dont think I was acting so hysterically

But I didnt see a thing until it came

Met the dumb suburbos in the takeaway

Beating up the chinee at the counter

I put a few inside me at the end of the day

I took out my revenge on the revolution counter



Chorus

Crawlin from the wreckage, crawlin from the wreckage

Bits of me are scattered in the trees and on the hedges

Crawlin from the wreckage, crawlin from the wreckage

And into a brand new car



In walks bud with his exploding nose

Hed been givin it maximum today

Shouted "how the devil you in trouble I suppose?

But all you ever do is run away."

Gunned up the motor into hyperdrive

I didnt want to take any of that

Dont get bright ideas about suicide

Cos all I ever hear is zoom bang bang bang



Chorus (var)

Crawlin from the wreckage, crawlin from the wreckage

Youd think by now at least that half my brain would get the message

Crawlin from the wreckage, crawlin from the wreckage

Into a brand new car



(shake it mitch!) instrumental verse



Well well nothing seem to happen that aint happened before

I see it all through flashes of depression

Drop my drink and hit some people running for the door

I gotta make some kind of impression

Cos when Im disconnected from the driving wheel

Im only half the man that I should be

Metal hitting metal is all I feel

But everythings as good as it possibly could be



Repeat chorus (var) then repeat chorus one then well, well



Crawlin from the wreckage, crawlin from the wreckage,

Crawlin from the wreckage, crawlin from the wreckage,

Crawlin from the wreckage, crawlin from the wreckage,





Variations



The marys version on piss and vinegar has it thus:

Youd think by now at least Id have a brain or get the message





Status quo version



Crawling from the wreckage

( g. parker )



Got out really early from the factory

Driving like a nut in the rain

Dont think I was acting so hysterically

But I didnt see a thing until it came

Man the drunks were verbal in the takeaway

Beating up the chinese at the counter



I put a few inside me

At the end of the day

I took out my revenge

On the revolution counter



Crawling from the wreckage

Crawling from the wreckage

Youd think by now at least that

Half my brain would get the message

Crawling from the wreckage

Crawling from the wreckage

Into a brand new car



In walks bud with his exploding nose

Hed been giving it maximum today

He shouted how the devil

You in trouble I suppose

But all you ever do is run away

Turned up the motor into hyper-drive

I wasnt gonna take any of that

Dont get bright ideas about a suicide

cause all I ever hear

Is zoom wam bam past me



Crawling from the wreckage

Crawling from the wreckage

Youd think by now at least that

Half my brain would get the message

Crawling from the wreckage

Crawling from the wreckage

Into a brand new car



Crawling, crawling, crawling from the wreckage

Crawling, crawling, crawling from the wreckage

Crawling, crawling, crawling from the wreckage



Crawling from the wreckage

Crawling from the wreckage

Bits of me are scattered

In the trees and in the hedges

Crawling from the wreckage

Crawling from the wreckage

Into a brand new car



Nothing seem to happen that aint happened before

I see it all through flashes of depression

I dry up my drink and hear

People running for the door

God I make some kind of impression

cause when Im disconnected from the driving wheel

Im only half the man I should be

But metal hitting metal isnt all I feel

And everything is good as

It possible could be



Crawling from the wreckage

Crawling from the wreckage

Youd think by now at least that

Half my brain would get the message

Crawling from the wreckage

Crawling from the wreckage

Into a brand new car



Crawling from the wreckage

Crawling from the wreckage

Bits of me are scattered

In the trees and in the hedges

Crawling from the wreckage

Crawling from the wreckage

Into a brand new car



Crawling from the wreckage

Crawling from the wreckage

Crawling, crawling

Crawling from the wreckage /pre>
