Andy it's me, haven't seen you in a while

F#m                            D
I wished I talked to you more when you were alive

A                  C#m          F#m
I thought you were self-assured when you acted shy

           Bm7   E
Hello it's me

A                  E
I really miss you, I really miss your mind

  F#m7                              D
I haven't heard ideas like that in such a long, long time

   A                 F#m                  E
I loved to watch you draw and watch you paint

            A           F#m              E
But when I saw you last      I turned away

A                             E
When Billy Name was sick and locked up in his room

    F#m                          D
You asked me for some speed, I though it was for you

     A            F#m               E
I'm sorry that I doubted your good heart

       A              E                E
Things always seem to end before they start

A                          E
Hello it's me, that was a great gallery show

     F#m                      D
Your cow wallpaper and your floating silver pillows

   A                 C#m     F#m
I wish I paid more attention when they laughed at you

           Bm7   E
Hello it's me

"Pop goes pop artist," the headline said
"Is shooting a put-on, is Warhol really dead?"
You get less time for stealing a car
I remember thinking as I heard my own record in a bar

They really hated you, now all that's changed
But I have some resentments that can never be unmade
You hit me where it hurt I didn't laugh
Your Diaries are not a worthy epitaph

Oh well now Andy - guess we've got to go
I hope some way somehow you like this little show
I know it's late in coming but it's the only way I know

           Bm7  E
Hello it's me - goodnight Andy...

    Goodbye, Andy
