Just the chords. The guitar fills, as always, are left as an
exercise to the reader. Does anyone have a guess as to what
this song is about?

[Intro:]
G F G F G C G F

F
Had a bit part
G
An endless reel
Am F
It always played in slo-mo
F
But now it's fast
G
A spinning wheel
C F
I know the dynamo
F
My heart is cast

[Chorus:]
C G
Speedy Marie
Bb D#
Ahead of the now
F C G
She's better built that's how
Bb
She's built for speed
D# F
Speedy Marie
C G F
Speedy Marie

Oh, yes indeed
I said to me
And so I sing this romaunt
It's not enough
My liberty
There is a thing I want
I need, I love

[repeat chorus]

/Bb /C /D /F
Juxtaposed in each moment's sight
/Bb /C /D /F
Everything that I ever saw
/Bb /F
And my one delight
Bb C Dm F
Nothing can strike me in such awe
Bb C Dm F
Mouth intricate shapes the voice that speaks
Bb F
Always it will soothe

Rarer none are the precious cheeks
Is the size of each sculpted tooth
Each lip and each eye

Wise it the tongue, wet of perfect thought
And softest neck where always do I
Lay my clumsy thoughts

She is that most lovely art
Happy are my mind and my soul
And my heart
