Penny Farthing lyrics and chords

Penny Farthing
words and music by Lloyd Miller (c)(p) 2010

How to play video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N3cTe-EpqTw

Capo fret 7

D D/C D/B D/A (repeat for each line of verse)
Saddle and the saddle spring
these are attached to the frame
all three are part of my lovely
penny farthing

if you want the wheel to spin
scoot into the seat
and then begin
to push the pedals
now take a trip on
penny farthing

C F
put a penny beside a farthing
G
the farthing's the bigger one
F C
and if you see a big wheel rolling
G
followed by a little one
F C
that just might be me & penny farthing
G
takin' in the winter sun
Dm
come say hello, man
F G
we're not late to see anyone

mustache handlebars allow
my legs to move free up and down
squeeze a handle
the spoon brake
stops my penny farthing

obstacles and sudden stops
can cause a header aka cropper
have you seen me fly facefirst
off penny farthing?
