Notes : Lily of the Valley piece seems to continue from the previous song on the CD – Flick of the Wrist. The last line “Baby You’ve been had….” , ends with a chord of Am, and the style of playing this chord, starts this song.

Am^ means the chord of Am played on the higher octave
Intro : Am  Am^  Dm  Dm add G  Am  Am^  Dm  Dm add G  Am  Am^  Am^  G  Em  Am  Am  G
