Here is a more complete chord transcription for this song.  I've formatted 
the chords to the lyrics (as well as I could), and included all the words.  
Thanks to Citizen Kane  for the original posting 

This is one of the best VU songs (in my humble opinion).  It's the first 
track on their third album, "The Velvet Underground"; and is written (of 
course) by Lou Reed. A "closet mix" version is also available on the new VU 
box set. Enjoy.

Candy Says: The Velvet Underground

D       F#m  F                B 
  Candy says, I've come to hate my body,
Em              A
  and all that it requires
  D              A
  in this world.
D       F#m  F               B
  Candy says, I'd like to know completely,
Em             A 
  what other souls discreetly
  D           A
  talk about. 

D           G                    E 
  I'm gonna watch the blue birds fly,
  over my shoulder.
D           G                    E
  I'm gonna watch them pass me by,
  maybe when I'm older.
C                       G
  What do you think I'd see,
     A                      C
  if I could walk away from me?    (4 beat pause)

VERSE 2: (same chords as verse 1)
Candy says, I hate the quite places,
that cause the smallest taste
of what will be.
Candy says, I hate the big descisions,
that cause endless revisions
in my mind.

CHORUS (again)

D (8 bts)           G (8 bts)
..........Doo, Doo, Whaa......... 
D                   G   
Doo.......Doo, Doo, Whaa......... (x4)

(end on)

It is kind of difficult to convey where exactly the chords change, as they 
don't line up perfectly with the words.  Every chord lasts for 4 beats and 
the words are placed over them.  There is also a lot of chord picking that 
goes on that I have no clue how to play.  And that's it...
