A Small Cigar guitar chords

Jethro Tull: A Small Cigar 
Chords: Håkan Mattsson 

Capo on third fret 

D        D7  Gm                   A 
A small cigar can change the world 
                       D            D7 
I know, I've done it frequently at parties 
               Gm                 A 
Where I've won all the guests' attention 
             D    D7          Gm          A 
With my generosity and suave gentlemanly bearing 
           D              D7 
A little flat tin case is all you need 
               Gm          Asus4 A 
Breast-pocket conversation opener 
                  D                         D7 
And one of those ciggie lighters that look rather good 
           Gm           Asus4 A 
You can throw away when empty 
      D              D7 
Must be declared a great success 
     Gm              Bb            D         B 
My small cigars all vanish within minutes 

                                                 Am* (An Am with lifted 
   Em                     Am Am*              e   0   index finger) 
Excuse me, mine host, that I may visit        B   0 
       G    D                                 G   2 
A nearby tobacconist                          D   2 
       Em                   Am Am*            A   0 
To replenish my supply of small cigars        E   - 
     G                            B 
And make the party swing again 

    D                    D7 
I know my clothes seem shabby 
           Gm                 A 
And don't fit this Hampstead soiree 
Where unread copies of Rolling Stone 
Well-thumbed Playboys 
              Gm                   A 
Decorate the hi-fi stereo record shelves 
    D                 D7 
If you ask me they're on their way 
          Gm             Asus4 A 
To upper-middle-class oblivion 
      D                 D7 
The stupid twits, they roll their only 
     Gm           Asus4 A 
One cigarette between them 
     D              D7 
My small cigar's redundant now 
        Gm                Bb 
In the haze of smoking pleasure 
     D                  D7 
Call it a day, get the hell away 
             Gm          Bb          D   B 
Go down the cafe, for a cup of real tea 

        Em                        Am Am* 
By the tube station, there's a drunk old fool 
           G                      D 
Who sells papers in the rush hour 
    Em              Am Am* 
I hand to him ten small cigars 
     G                                   B 
He smiles, says, ``Son, God bless you'' 

    D               C 
A small cigar has changed his world, my friend 
    D               C 
A small cigar has changed the world again 

Piano, repeated 
Dsus4 D C ... G Bb Asus4 A Asus2 A 
A small cigar . . .
