The [G] colours faded [Em] into darkness, [A7] I was left a[D]lone
May I re[G]turn [D] to the be[G]ginning [C]
The light is [G] dimming, [D] and the dream is [G] too [D]

Back Home Again
Intro = [A] [A]
There’s a [A] storm across the [A7] valley, [D] clouds are rollin’ in
the [E7] afternoon is heavy on your [A] shoulders.
There’s a [A] truck out on the [A7] four lane, a [D] mile or more away
the [E7] whinin’ of his wheels just makes it [A] colder.
He’s an [A] hour away from [A7] ridin’ on your [D] prayers up in the sky
and [E7] ten days on the road are barely [A] gone.
There’s a [A] fire softly [A7] burning; [D] supper’s on the stove
but it’s the [E7] light in your eyes that makes him [A] warm. [A7]
[D] Hey, it’s good to [E7] be back home a- [A] gain [A7]
[D] Sometimes [E7] this old farm feels [A] like a long lost [D] friend
Yes, ‘n, [E7] hey it’s good to be back home [A] again
After [A] all the news to [A7] tell him: [D] how you spent your time;
and [E7] what’s the latest thing the neighbors [A] say;
and your [A] mother called last [A7] friday; [D] sunshine” made her cry;
and you [E7] felt the baby move just yester [A] day.
Chorus
And [D] oh, the time that [E7] I can lay this tired [A] old body [D] down
and feel your fingers [E7] feather soft up- [A] on me [A7] ;
the [D] kisses that I [E7] live for; the [A] love that lights my way [D] ;
the [Bm] happiness that [D] livin’ with you [E7] brings me.
It’s the [A] sweetest thing I [E7] know of, just [D] spending time with you
it’s the [E7] little things that make a house a [A] home.
Like a [A] fire softly [A7] burning and [D] supper on the stove.
And the [E7] light in your eyes that makes me [A] warm.
[D] Hey, it’s good to [E7] be back home a- [A] gain [A7]
[D] Sometimes [E7] this old farm feels [A] like a long lost [D] friend
Yes, ‘n, [E7] hey it’s good to be back home [A] again

Last night the wife said oh boy when you're dead
You [A7] don't take nothing with you but your soul –think

The [D7] newspaper said she's gone to his head
They look just like two gurus in drag

Fifty acorns tied in a sack
The [D7] men from the press said we wish you success
It's good to have the both of you back

In a [G] neat little town they call Belfast, apprenticed to [C] trade I was [D] bound,
[G] Many an hour sweet happiness
Have I [Am] spent in that [D] neat little [G] town.

Her [G] eyes they shone like diamonds,
I thought her the [C] queen of the [D] land,
And her [G] hair hung over her shoulder,
Tied [Am] up with a [D] black velvet [G] band.
I [G] took a stroll down Broadway, meaning not [C] long for to [D] stay,
When [G] who should I meet but this pretty fair maid,
Come a [Am] traipsing a-[D]-long the high-[G]-way.
She was both fair and handsome, her neck it was [C] just like a [D] swan's.
And her [G] hair hung over her shoulder,
Tied [Am] up with a [D] black velvet [G] band.
Chorus
I [G] took a stroll with this pretty fair maid, and a gentleman [C] passing us [D] by.
Well, I [G] knew she meant the doing of him,
By the [Am] look in her [D] roguish black [G] eye.
A gold watch she took from his pocket, And placed it [C] right into my [D] hand,
And the [G] very first thing that I said was:
"Bad [Am] ‘cess to the [D] black velvet [G] band".
Chorus
Be-[G]-fore the judge and the jury next morning I [C] had to ap-[D]-pear.
The [G] judge he says to me, "Young fellow,

Seven long years is your sentence, to be spent far a [C] way from this [D] land,
Far a-[G]-way from your friends and relations,

I re[C]member you [G] well in the [F] Chelsea Hotel [C]
You were talking so [Em7] brave and so [Am] sweet
[C] Giving me [G] head on the [F] unmade [C] bed
While the [F] limousines wait in the [G7] street

We were [C] running for the [Em7] money and the [Am] flesh
And [F] that was called love for the [C] workers in song
Probably [F] still is for those of them [G7] left
Ah but [F] you got away, [C] didn't you babe
You [C] just turned your [Em7] back on the [Am] crowd
[F] You got away, I never once [C] heard you say
I [F] need you, I don't [C] need you
I [F] need you, I don't [C] need you
And [F] all of that jiving a[Am]round [G7]
I re[C]member you [G] well in the [F] Chelsea Hotel [C]
You were famous, your [Em7] heart was a [Am] legend
You [C] told me a[G]gain you [F] preferred handsome [C] men
But for [F] me you would make an ex[G7]ception
And [Am] clenching your fist for the [F] ones like us
Who are o[C]pressed by the [Em7] figures of [Am] beauty
[F] You fixed yourself, you said, [C] "Well never mind
We are [F] ugly but we have the [G7] music."
And then [F] you got away, [C] didn't you babe
You [C] just turned your [Em7] back on the [Am] crowd
[F] You got away, I never once [C] heard you say
I [F] need you, I don't [C] need you
I [F] need you, I don't [C] need you

[G] Rolls along past houses, farms and [G] fields.

Dealin' [C] cards with the [G] old men in the [C] club car.

[C] Pass that paper [G] bag that holds the [Am] bottle
[F] Feel the wheels [G] rumblin' 'neath the [C] floor.
And the [Em] sons of pullman porters
And the [Am] sons of engineers
Ride their [G] father's magic carpets made of [G] steel.
[Am] Mothers with their babes asleep,
Go [Em] rockin' to the gentle beat
And the [G] rhythm of the [G7] rails is all they [C] feel.
Chorus
[C] Night-time on The [G] City of New [C] Orleans,
[Am] Changing cars in [F] Memphis, Tennes-[C]-see. [G]
[C] Half way home, [G] we'll be there by [Am] morning
Through the [F] Mississippi darkness [G] rolling to the [C] sea.
And [Am] all the towns and people seem
To [Em] fade into a bad dream
And the [G] steel rails still ain't heard the [G] news.
The con-[Am]-ductor sings his song again,
The [Em] passengers will please refrain
[G] This train's got the [G7] disappearing railroad [C] blues.

Common People –Pulp
[C]She came from Greece, she had a thirst for knowledge
She studied sculpture at St. Martin's college, that's where [G]I caught her eye
[C]She told me that her dad was loaded
I said, "in that case I'll have a rum and coca cola," she said [G]fine
And then in thirty seconds time, she said:
[F]I wanna live like common people, I wanna do whatever common people [C]do
I wanna sleep with common people, I wanna sleep with common people, like [G]you
Well what else could I do? I said "I'll see what I can [C]do."
[C]I took her to a supermarket
I don't know why, but I had to start it some[G]where, so it started there.
[C]I said, "pretend you've got no money." She just laughed and said "oh, you're so funny"
I said [G]"Yeah, well I can't see anyone else smiling in here." Are you sure?
[F]You wanna live like common people.
You wanna see whatever common people [C]see?
You wanna sleep with common people.
You wanna sleep with common people like [G]me?
But she didn't understand, she just smiled and held my [C]hand!
[C]Rent a flat above a shop, cut your hair and get a job
Smoke some [G]fags and play some pool, pretend you never went to school
But still you'll [C]never get it right, 'cos when you're laid in bed at night
Watching [G]roaches climb the wall, if you called your dad he could stop it all, yeah
[F]You'll never live like common people
You'll never do whatever common people [C]do
Never fail like common people, you'll never watch your life slide out of [G]view
And then dance and drink and screw, because there's nothing else to [C]do!
BRIDGE [C] [G] [x 2]
[F]Sing along with the common people, sing along and it might just get you [C]through

Congleton Bear (David Holness)
Chorus [play between each Verse]:
The [A7] cheeses of Cheshire are famed, but beware
Of [D] stories they [E7] tell of the Congleton [A7] Bear
[D] Congleton [G] Bear, Congleton [D] Bear
They [G] sold the Church [D] Bible to [A7] buy a new [D] bear
The [D] Wakes coming on and the [G] bear he took [D] ill
We [G] tried him with potion, with [D] brandy and [A7] pill
He [D] died in his sleep at the [G] eve of the [D] Wakes
The [G] cause, it was [D] said, was strong [A7] ale and sweet [D] cakes
Chorus
He'd [D] served the town well and he's [G] served the town [D] true
To [G] lie him in state was the [D] least they could [A7] do
The [D] old bear was dead, a suc[G]cessor they'd [D] need
A [G] new bear was [D] wanted, and [A7] that at great [D] speed
Chorus
Now a [D] parson is useful in [G] times of great [D] need
And im[G]bibed with strong porter he [D] quickly a[A7]greed
The [D] parson, his Bible he [G] gave then and [D] there
We [G] sold it in [D] Nantwich to[A7] buy a new [D] bear.
Chorus
The [D] new bear, a she-bear, was the [G] toast of the [D] town
To [G] music and laughter she [D] danced up and [A7] down
So [D] loudly the cheering would [G] waken the [D] dead
It [G] caused the old [D] bear for to [A7] rise from his [D] bed
Chorus
He [D] rolled his dark eye as he [G] spied the she-[D]bear
And [G] with an em[D]brace they danced [A7] jigs pair-and-[D]pair

[Em] Conquistador your [A7] stallion stands [D] in need of compa[D7]ny
[Em] And like some angels [A7] haloed brow [D] you reek of puri[D7]ty
I see your [E7] armour plated [Am] breast
Has [D] long since lost its [Em] sheen
And [E7] in your death mask [Am] face
There are no [D] signs which can be [Em] seen
[Em] And though I hoped for [C7] something to find
I could [Em] see no [C7] maze to unwind
[Em] Conquistador a [A7] vulture sits [D] upon your silver [D7] shield
[Em] And in your rusty [A7] scabbard now [D] the sand has taken [D7] seed
And though your [E7] jewel-encrusted [Am] blade
Has [D] not been plundered [Em] still
The sea has [E7] washed across your [Am] face and [D] taken of its [Em] fill
And though I [Em] hoped for [C7] something to find
I could [Em] see no [C7] maze to unwind
And though I [Em] hoped for [C7] something to find
I could [Em] see no [C7] maze to unwind
[Em] Conquistador there [A7] is no time [D] I must pay my re[D7]spect
[Em] And though I came to [A7] jeer at you [D] I leave now with re[D7]gret
And as the [E7] gloom begins to [Am] fall I see there [D] is no...only [Em] all
And though you [E7] came with sword held [Am] high
You did not [D] conquer only [Em] die
[Em] And though I hoped for [C7] something to find
I could [Em] see no [C7] maze to unwind [Em]

And [C] ev'rybody tells me that it's [F] cool to be a cat
Cool for [Em] cats (cool for [A] cats)

I [C] ask her lots of questions and she [Am] hangs on to the wall
I [Eb] kiss her for the first time and [Cm] then I take her home

She [Eb] likes to go to discos but she's [Cm] never on her own

Look at [A] me I am [F#m] old but I'm [Bm] happy [E7]
All the [A] times that I [C#m7] cried
Keeping [Dmaj7] all the things I [Bm7] knew inside
It's [A] hard but it's [F#m] harder to ig[Bm]nore it [E7]
If they were [A] right I'd a[C#m7]gree
But it's [Dmaj7] them they know not [Bm7] me now
There's a [A] way and I [F#m] know
That I [D] have to go a[A]way I [E7] know I [D] have to [A] go

Susanne the [G] plans they made put an [Bbmaj7] end to you
[C] I walked out this [Gm7] morning and I [F] wrote down this [C] song
I just can't re[G] member who to [Bbmaj7] send it to

I've seen [F] lonely times when I [Dm] could not [G7] find a [C] friend
But I [Bbadd9] always thought that I'd see you again
[C] Won't you look down upon me [Gm7] Jesus
You've got to [F] help me make a [C] stand
[C] You've just got to [G] see me through a[Bbmaj7]nother day
[C] My body's [Gm7] aching and my [F] time is at [C] hand
And I won't [G] make it any [Bbmaj7] other way

My [F] back turned towards the [C] sun
[C] Lord knows when the [G] cold wind blows
It'll [Bbmaj7] turn your head around
Well there's [C] hours of time on the [Gm7] telephone line
To [F] talk about things to [C] come

For [Gm] trying to change the system from [Dm] within
I'm [Gm] coming now I'm coming to [Dm] reward them
[C] First we take Man[Bb]hattan [A] then we take Berl[Dm]in
I'm [Gm] guided by a signal in the [Dm] heavens
I'm [Gm] guided by this birthmark [Dm] on my skin
I'm [Gm] guided by the beauty of our [Dm] weapons
[C] First we take Man[Bb]hattan [A] then we take Berl[Dm]in
Chorus:
I'd [F] really like to [Gm7] live beside you [C] baby [Bb]
I love your [F] body and your spirit and your [Dm] clothes
But you [F] see that line there moving through the [Dm] station
I [C] told you I [Bb] told you I [A] told you I was one of [Dm] those
You [Gm] loved me as a loser but now you’re [Dm] worried that I just might win
You [Gm] know the way to stop me but you [Dm] don't have the discipline
How [Gm] many nights I prayed for this: to [Dm] let my work begin
[C] First we take Man[Bb]hattan [A] then we take Berl[Dm]in
[Gm] I don't like your fashion business, [Dm] mister
[Gm] I don't like these drugs that [Dm] keep you thin
[Gm] I don't like what happened to my [Dm] sister
[C] First we take Man[Bb]hattan [A] then we take Berl[Dm]in
Chorus
And I [Gm] thank you for those items that you [Dm] sent me
The [Gm] monkey and the plywood [Dm] violin
I [Gm] practised every night and now I'm [Dm] ready
[C] First we take Man[Bb]hattan [A] then we take Berl[Dm]in
[Gm] Remember me, I used to live for [Dm] music
[Gm] Remember me, I brought your [Dm] groceries in
It's [Gm] Father's Day and everybody's [Dm] wounded

And [G] yellow roses [Gmaj7] gathered all a[C]round [D] me
The [G] time was still a[Gmaj7]pproaching four
I [Em7] couldn't stand it [Gmaj7] any more
Saw [G] marigolds u[Gmaj7]pon my eider[C]down [D]
Chorus:

Feel the power of the rain [A] making the [G] gar[A]den [D] grow
[G] I’m just sitting watching flowers in the rain
Feel the power of the rain [A] keeping me [D] cool [A] [D]
[G] So I lay u[Gmaj7]pon my side
With [Em7] all the windows [Gmaj7] opened wide
[G] Couldn't pressu[Gmaj7]rize my head from [C] spea[D]king
[G] Hoping not to [Gmaj7] make a sound
I [Em7] pushed my bed in[Gmaj7]to the grounds
In [G] time to catch the [Gmaj7] sight that I was [C] see[D]king
Chorus
[C] If this perfect pleasure has the [G] key
Then this is how it has to [Am] be if my pillow's [G] getting wet
I [F] don't see that it [D] matters [G] much to [C]me [D7]
I [G] heard the flowers [Gmaj7] in the breeze
Make [Em7] conversation [Gmaj7] with the trees
Be[G]lieved to leave re[Gmaj7]ality be[C]hind [D] me
With [G] my commitments [Gmaj7] in a mess
My [Em7] sleep has gone a[Gmaj7]way depressed
[G] In a world of [Gmaj7] fantasy you'll [C] find [D] me

When[G] I was just a baby my [G] mama told me. Son
Always [G] be a good boy, don´t [G7] ever play with guns
But I [C] shot a man in Reno just to watch him [G] die
When I [D7] hear that whistle, I hang my head and [G] cry
….. [E7] [INTO KEY CHANGE]
I [A] bet there´s rich folks eating in a [A] fancy dining car
They´re [A] probably drinkin´ coffee and [A7] smoking big cigars
Well I [D] know I had it coming, [D]I know I can´t be [A] free
But those [E7] people keep a movin, and that´s what tortures [A] me
Well [A] if they´d free me from this prison,
if that [A] railroad train was mine
I [A] bet I´d move on over a little [A7] further down the line
[D] Far from Folsom prison, that's [D] where I want to [A] stay
And I´d [E7] let that lonesome whistle blow my blues [A] away
[A] I hear the train a comin´, it´s [A] rolling round the bend
And I ain´t seen the sunshine since [A7] I don´t know when

It's [C] been in our [E7] possession since [Am] Grandad was a lad.
I’ll [G] tell you what it [D7] is and then you'll [G] know.
[G7] It's my [C] Grandad's Flannelette [Adim] night-[C] shirt
In it [F] I was [Adim] christened one [C] day
Down [G7] at the church they [C] were in a [Am] whirl,
[G] No one seemed to know if I were [D7] boy or [G7] girl.
[G7] [Dm] [G7] They'd [C] had one or two and ee they [Am] were in [C] mess
But it's [F] all right said the preacher rather [E7] curt.
I've [F] been and had a [Adim] quiz and I've [C] found out what it [A7] is
By his [D7] Grandad's [G7] Flannelette [C] shirt lordy [Am] lordy,
his [D7] Grandad's [G7] Flannelette [C] shirt.
[G7] In my [C] Grandad's Flannelette [Adim] night-[C]shirt
[F] I got [Adim] married one [C] day.
In the [G7] train my [C] bride gave a [Am] shout,
[G] "Ee what is that you are [D7] pulling [G7] out?"
[G7][Dm][G7]I said, [C] "It's old fashioned and it's [Am] tattered and [C] torn
But I've [F] brought it honeymooning with me [E7] Gert"
When [F] she said, [Adim] "What is it dear?" I [C] whispered in her [A7] ear
"It's my [D7] Grandad's [G7] Flannelette [C] shirt lordy [Am] lordy,
my [D7] Grandad's [G7] Flannelette [C] shirt."
The [C] other day I [G7] got an [C] invitation [C7]
to [F] go and join a [Adim] nudist colo[C]ny
And [C] as the life is [E7] healthy and in the [Am] open air
I [G]trotted off as [D7] happy as can [G] be.
[G7] With my [C] Grandad's Flannelette [Adim] night-[C] shirt
I [F] walked up [Adim] to the [C] door.
Someone [G7] said, "Now [C] don't make a [Am] fuss,
[G] just take off your clothes and you'll [D7] be like [G7] us."
[G7][Dm][G7] I was [C] bashful so I [Am] stayed by my[C]self,
for with the [F] girls I didn't want to [E7] flirt
But [F] when I [Adim] fell asleep they all [C] came and had a [A7] peep
At my [D7] Grandad's Flannelette [C] shirt
lordy [Am] lordy,
my [D7] Grandad's [G7]Flannelette[C] shirt.

Talk of your wonderful gardens down at [C] Kew. [C7]
[F] I know a [Dm] spot that can [F] beat all the [Dm] lot
it’s the [E7] best I’ve [Am] seen
[D7] Keep all your hills and dales, put me with the slugs and [G7] snails.
In a little Wigan [G#7] garden, [C] where the dandelions [G#7] grow
With my sweetie frowsy [G7] Flo round the mulberry bush we [C] go
Underneath the Wigan [G#7] Palm [C] trees there I bring her up to [A7] scratch
We [D7] have such a game on the cucumber frame;
I’d show her the cabbage [G7] patch
[C7] When the morning mildew [F] christens our shallots,
[D7] Scented breezes coming [G7] from the [Dm] chimney [G7] pots
In a little Wigan [G#7] Garden, [C] when the soot is falling [G#7] down
Oh what a [G7] place, what a case, a disgrace to my home [C] town.
[C] All sorts of [Am/C] things, some with [C] wings, some with [Am/C] stings every [G7]
night appear
Glow worms and silkworms and Wigan earwigs [C] too. [C7]
[F] Crocuses [Dm] croak with [F] fog and [Dm] smoke from the [E7] gasworks [Am] near
[D7] The one thing that only grows, is the wart [G7] on my [Dm] sweeties [G7] nose
In a little Wigan [G#7] garden [C] with my little [G#7] Wiganese
Getting [G7] stung with bumble bees, between the cabbages and [C] peas
‘Neath the Wigan water [G#7] lilies [C] where the drainpipe over[A7] flows
There’s [D7] my girl and me she sits on my knee
and watch how the rhubarb [G7] grows
[C7] ‘Neath the shady tree to my [F] loved one I cling
[D7] While the birds above do everything but [G7] sing
It’s a rotten Wigan [G#7] garden, [C] everything grows upside [G#7] down
Oh what a [G7] place what a case, a disgrace to my home [C] town.

I've [F] built my [G7] self a [C] camera, it [B7] took me years and [G7] years.
[G7sus2][G7]
It's a [C] wonderful invention with [F] special [G7] x-ray [Am] tricks,
It can [G] take a picture [Gdim] in the [G] dark and can [G] even see through [G]

Now [C] I've got a [F] picture of the [G7sus4] girl next [G7] door, [G7sus4] in my
little [G7] snapshot [C] album,
And [C] I've never [C6] had a better [G7sus4] snap be [G7] fore, [G7sus4] in my
little [G7] snapshot [C] album.
The [Dm] night was dark and the [Em] hour was late,
She was [F] kissing her boy by the [C] gar [G7] den [C] gate,
[Dm] Wouldn't she love to [E7] see page [Am] eight, [CG7 in my little snapshot
[C] album.
or
And [C] I've got a [C6] picture of my [G7sus4] old [G7] granddad, [G7sus4] in my

[C] He's over [C6] eighty but a [G7sus4] real bad [G7] lad, [G7sus4] in my little
[G7] snapshot [C] album
[Dm] Although he's an [Em] old antique,

I've [Dm] got him dancing [E7] cheek to [Am] cheek [G7] in my little snapshot [C]
album.
Now [C] I've got a [C6] picture of the [G7sus4] vicar's [G7] wife, [G7sus4] in my

Now [Dm] what he did was [Em] all in fun
But it's [F] not the kind of [C] thing [G7] that's [C] done,
I can [DEm] see he pinched her [E7] hot-cross [Am] bun, [G7] in my little snapshot
[C] album.
or
And [C] I've got a [C6] picture of a [G7sus4] nudist [G7] camp, [G7sus4] in my little

[C] All very [C6] jolly but a [G7sus4] trifle [G7] damp, [G7sus4] in my little [G7]
snapshot [C] album.
There's [Dm] Uncle Dick [Em] without a care,

But his [Dm] watch and chain still [E7] dangle [Am] there, [G7] in my little

Now [C] I had a [G#7] sweetie [G7] once upon a [C] time, well [G#7] she was my [G7] i[C]deal,
And when she was [G#7] near I [G7] used to [C] feel, [G#7] well you know how [G7] you [C] feel.
But [G] I was shy and couldn't tell my love, when I [D7] did my knees all [Em] shook,
So [G] I thought I would say it with music and I [A] bought myD7]self a [G7] uke.
I [G#7] learnt this sloppy [G7] tune, then one night underneath [A7] the [D7] Wigan [G7] moon.
I [C] told my [G#7] baby [G7] with the uku[C]lele, I [D7] sung a song of Ara[G7]by, [C] [7]

I played it [C] soft and sad, she didn't [G#7] care a bit,
And then I [Dm] got so mad I swore I'd [G#7] make a [G7] hit.
So I [C] told my [G#7] baby [G7] with the uku[C]lele,
I [G#7] bashed her with it [G7] over the [C] head
But oh! she [G#7] was a pal, I [C] only wish you could have [G#7] seen [G7] that [C] gal.
Her hair was brunette type, It [D7] had pretty wrinkles like you see in [G7] tripe.
She's [C] going to [C7] have it [F] bobbed this [G#7] Spring,
Now [C] where will the sparrows nest, [G#7] po[G7]or [C] things.
Her face, it is so bright, you [D7] can't see a blemish on a foggy [G7] night,
And [C] when she [C7] smiles on [F] her own a[G#7]ccord
Her [C] face lights up because she's [G#7] lan[G7]tern [C] jawed.
Her teeth they are divine, all [D7] the colours in the rainbow there you'll [G7] find,
Black, [C] blue, [C7] green and [F] red you [G#7] bet,
She [C] only wants a white one for a [G#7] snoo[G7]ker [C] set.
Her neck, I loved it so, I [D7] brought her a present about a week [G7] ago,
Two [C] little [C7] gifts she'll [F] use I [G#7] hope,
I [C] bought her a sponge and a [G#7] bar [G7] of [C] soap.
When I [C] went to meet my [G#7] little maid, [D7]
I’ll let you hear the sera[G#7]nade [G7] I [C] played
I [C] told my [G#7] baby [G7] with the uku[C]lele, I [D7] sung a song of Ara[G7]by, [C] [7]
I [C] told my [G#7] baby [G7] with the uku[C]lele, [D7] but she only laughed at [G7] me.
I played it [C] soft and sad, she didn't [G#7] care a bit,

You [E7] haven't come home the same as [A7] when you went [D7] out

GF - Leaning on a Lamp Post [harder]
or
[C] I'm leaning on a [G7] lamp,
maybe you [C6] think, [C#dim] I look a [G] tramp,
[G] Or you may [C] think I'm [C6] hanging [D7-alt] 'round to [G7] steal a [C] car.
[Ebdim] [Dm7] [G7]
But [C] no I'm not a [G7] crook, And if you [C6] think, that's [C#dim] what I [G7] look,
[G7] I'll tell you [C] why I'm here, and [Am] what my [D7] motives are. [G7][Dm7] [G7]
******
[C] I'm leaning on a lamp-post at the corner of the street,
[C] In case a [G7] certain little lady comes [C] by.
Oh [Dm7] me, [G7] oh [C] my, [C6] I [G] hope the little [D7] lady comes by. [G]
[G7] I [C] don't know if she'll get away, She doesn't always get away,
[C] But [G7] anyhow I know that she'll [C] try.
Oh [Dm7] me, [G7] oh [C] my, [C6] I [G] hope the little [D7] lady comes by, [G]
[G] There's G7] no other girl I would [Dm7] wait [G7] for,
[G+] But [C] this one I'd break any [E7] date [Am] for,
I [D7] won't have to ask what she's [C6] late [D7] for,
[D7-alt] She [G7] wouldn't have to leave me [Dm7] flat,
She's not a [G7] girl like that.
[G7] Oh, she's [C] absolutely wonderful, and marvellous and beautiful.
[C] And [G7] anyone can understand [C7] why,
[C+] I'm [F] leaning on a lamp-post at the [D7] corner of the street
In case a [C] certain little [G7] lady passes [C] by.

GF - Little Stick of Blackpool Rock
or
[C] Every year when [G7] summer comes round, off to the sea I [C] go.
[E7] I don't care if I [Am]do spend a pound, [D7] I'm rather rash I [G7] know.
[C7] See me dressed like [F] all the sports, [D7] in my blazer and a [G7] pair of shorts.
With my [C] little stick of Blackpool Rock, [G] along the promenade I [D7] stroll.
[G7]It [C] may be [Cdim]sticky but I [G7] never complain,
it's [D7] nice to have a nibble at it [G7] now and again
[C7] Every day [F] wherever I stray the [D7] kids all round me [G7] flock.
[C7]One afternoon the band conductor [F] up on his stand
Some [D7] how he lost his baton - it flew [G7] out of his hand
So I [C7] jumped in his place and then con[E7]ducted the [Am]band
With my [D7] little stick of [G7]Blackpool [C] Rock
With my [C] little stick of Blackpool Rock, [G] along the promenade I [Dm} stroll
[G7] In [C] my po[Cdim]cket it got [G7] stuck I could tell
'Cos [D7] when I pulled it out I pulled my [G7] shirt off as well
[C7] Every day [F] wherever I stray the [D7] kids all round me [G7] flock.
[C7] A girl while bathing clung to me, my [F] wits I’d to use
She cried, "I'm [D7] drowning, and to save me, [G7] you won't refuse"
I said, "[C7] Well if you're drowning then I [E7] don't want to [Am] lose
My [D7] little stick of [G7] Blackpool [C] Rock”
With my [C] little stick of Blackpool Rock, [G] along the promenade I [Dm] stroll
[G7] In [C] the bal [Cdim]room I went [G7] dancing each night
No [D7] wonder every girl that danced with me, [G7] stuck to me tight
[C7] Every day [F] wherever I stray the [D7] kids all round me [G7] flock.
[C7] A fellow took my photograph it [F] cost one and three.
I said when it was [D7] done, "Is that su[G7]pposed to be me?"
"You've [C7] properly mucked it up the only [E7] thing I can [Am] see is
My [D7] little stick of [G7] Blackpool [C] Rock - [Cdim] Lordy Lordy, - My [D7] little stick of
[G7] Blackpool [C] Rock”

GF - Little Ukulele [C]
[C] Now everybody's [G7] got a crazy notion of their [C] own
[F] Some like to mix up with a [C] crowd, some [D7] like to be [G7] alone
It's no [F] one else's business, as [C] far as I can see
But [D7] every time that I go out the people stare at [G7] me
With my [C] little ukulele in my hand [C7]
Of [F] course the people do not [C] understand
Some [G7] say, 'Why don't you be a scamp? Why [C] don't you read a book?'
But [D7] I get lots more pleasure when I'm playing with me [G7] uke!
Of [C] course I take no [E7] notice you [Am] can tell [C7]
For [F] mother's sound advice will always [G7] stand
She said 'My [C] boy do as I [E7] say
And you'll [A7] never go [Dm] astray
[G7] If you [C] keep your uku-[G7]-lele in your [C] hand, [E7] Yes [A7] son!
[D7] Keep your [G7] ukulele in your [C] hand
While [C] walking on the [G7] prom one night as [C] peaceful as can be
When [F] some young girl said, "What about a [D7] walk down by the [G7] sea?"
She [F] said her name was Jen and that she'd [C] just come for the day,
She [D7] looked so young and harmless that I couldn't turn a-[G7]-way.
So with me [C] little ukulele in my hand [C7]
[F] Me and Jen we walked along the [C] sand
We [G7] walked along for miles without a [C] single care or frown,
But [D7] when we reached the sand dunes, she said, "Come on lets sit down." [G7]
I [C] felt so shy and [E7] bashful sitting [Am] there [C7]
Cause the [F] things she said I didn't under-[G7]-stand
She said, "Your [C] love just makes me [E7] dizzy
[Am] Come on big boy get [Dm] busy!"
[D7] But I kept a [G7] ukulele in my [C] hand
[E7] Yes [A7] sir!
[D7] I kept my [G7] ukulele in my [C] hand!
or
[C] Made up my mind that [G7] I'd get wed some [C] eighteen months ago,
I [F] also bought a book about [D7] the things a boy should [G7] know.
But [F] just about a week ago I [C] had an awful fright,
I [D7] had to get dressed quickly in the middle of the [G7] night.
And with my [C] little ukulele in my hand, [C7]
I went [F] running down the street to Doctor [C] Brand.
It [G7] didn't take him long to get his [C] bag of tools
I [D7] held his hat and coat and let him have me book of [G7] rules
[C] Out the bedroom [E7] door he looked and [Am] smiled [C7]
He said, [F] "Come inside and see your wife and [G7] child!"
My [C] heart it filled with [E7] joy
I could [A7] see it was a [Dm] boy
[D7] For he [G7] had a ukulele in his [C] hand
[E7] Oh [A7] Baby!
[D7] He had a [G7] ukulele in his [C] hand!

[C] Mother [Cdim] you give [C] good advice, [Dm7] always you mean [Fadd9] well. [G7]
[C] Now I [E7] need it [Am] more than ever I'm in[D7-alt]side this [G7] cell. [Gdim] [G7]
[C] I'm be[E7]hind a [Dm] prison [G7] wall, the [C] bed's so [A7] hard and [D7-alt] much too [G7] small
There's [C] no py[C7]jamas [F] here at [G#7] all, Oh [C] Mother what'll [Dm7] I [G7] do [C] now? [Cm] [G7]
They [C] told me [C7] they would [Dm] treat me [G7] swell
[C] tucked in[A7]side my [D7-alt] little [G7] cell
But [C] up to [C7] now it's [F] been like [G#7] h...!
[C] Mother what'll [Dm7] I [G7] do [C] now?
We're [C7] parted from each other [C] and that's [Fdim] too [F] bad.
[D7] You're my favourite Mother, Oh the best I ever [G] had. [Gdim] [G7]
To[C]night I've [A7] got a [Dm] date you [G7] see but [C] they won't [A7] let me [D7-alt] have a [G7] key
And the [C] Warder's [C7] won't wait [C] up for [G#7] me,
Oh! [C] Mother what'll [G#7] I [G7] do [C] now?
It's [C] hard to [A7] pass the [Dm] time a[G7]way, I'm [C] in a [A7] dangerous [D7-alt] mood I [G7] say.
I've [C] smoked two [C7] ciga[F]rettes to[G#7]day, Oh! [C] Mother what'll [G#7] I [G7] do [C] now?
[C] First I [C7] stand and [Dm] then I [G7] sit, [C] then I [A7] sit and [D7-alt] stand a [G7] bit
But [C] I can't [C7]stand much [F] more of [G#7] it,

We're [C7] parted from each other [C] and that's [Fdim] too [F] bad.
[D7] You're my favourite Mother, Oh the best I ever [G] had. [Gdim] [G7]
[C] I got [A7] such an [Dm] awful [G7] shock, I [C] asked the [A7] time for [D7-alt] there's no [G7] clock
And the [C] Warder [C7] said six [F] months "Old [G#7] Cock
Oh! [C] Mother what'll [G#7] I [G7] do [C] now?
I [C] order [C7] lunch from [Dm] soup to [G7] sweet but [C] they for[A7]got the [D7-alt] fish and [G7] meat

[C] I've had [A7] such a [Dm] tummy [G7] ache. [C] All night [A7] long I've [D7-alt] been a[G7] wake.
Some [C] castor [C7] oil they [F] made me [G#7] take,

GF - On The Wigan Boat Express
[Tune in D]
or
On the [C] boat express I ride, [G7] see us every [C] day
[G7] Flashing by the [C] countryside, [D7] picking flowers [G7] on the way
Once a [C] wedding pair didnt seem to [Am] care they were [D7] full of love I guess
And the [G7] honeymoon started far too soon on the [C] Wigan [G#7] Boat [G7] Express. [C]
A [C] chap one day with a girl got [Am] gay, I [D7] saw them both caress
She [G7] got what for in the corridor on the [C] Wigan [G#7] Boat [G7] Express. [C]
[C] When [G7] we [C7] shunt the [C] backs [G7] in [C] front and the [F] front parts in the rear
If [D7] we survive then we’ll arrive [G7] alongside Wigan Pier.
Cried a lady [C] "Oo bring a doctor [Am] do, I [D7] think Im in distress."
She was feel[G7]ing shocks in a signal box on the [C] Wigan [G#7] Boat [G7] Express. [C]
On a [C] steep incline one day, [G7] the train was standing [C] still.
I [G7] said we cant wait here [C] all day [G7] so we [D] pushed it [G7] up the hill.
[G7] If its wet [C] or fine we start at nine, we are [D] prompt I must confess.
And by half[G7]-past one two miles weve done on the [C] Wigan [G#7] Boat Express. [C]
Once a [C] chap I saw on the engine floor, hed gone[C] to sleep I guess
But he [G7] woke to find a tender behind on the [C] Wigan [G#7] Boat Express. [C]
Now [C7] when we shunt the backs in front and the [F] front parts in the rear
If we [G] survive then well arrive a[D]longside [Gm] Wigan [G] Pier.
[G7] Mrs. [C] Brown looked swell but sad to tell on the [D] door she tore her dress
And the [G7] sun shone gay through the permanent way on the [C] Wigan [G#7] Boat Express. [C]
[C] When [G7] we [C7] shunt the [C] backs [G7] in [C] front and the [F] front parts in the rear
If [D7] we survive then we’ll arrive [G7] alongside [Gm] Wigan [D] Pier.
[G7] In the slee[C]ping car they go too far, all [D] mixed up more or less
But they [G7] rearrange when I shout "All change" on the [C] Wigan [G#7] Boat Express. [C]

GF - Our Sergeant Major [F]
[F] Now there’s a sergeant major, enjoys life will he can.
He proves to all the ladies he’s a [G7] soldier and a [C7] man.
[F] He sticks out his chest, two [Gm] pillows in his vest,
A [C7] bolster under his rotunda, Our Sergeant [F] Major.
His [F] medals break our hearts, he [Gm] won them playing darts,
And [C7] while competing, who was cheating? Our Sergeant [F] Major
He’s [Am] far away the [Em7] worst friend [Am] we’ve ever had,
[Gm] When he’s far [D7] away well, [Gm] we’re mighty glad. [C7]
In [F] the canteen bar, you [Gm] know what sergeants are,
[C7] When we’ve passed out, who’s the last out, Our Sergeant [F] Major.
He’s [F] got a raucous voice, his [Gm] language isn’t choice,
In [C7] clink we’d shove him, how we’d love him, Our Sergeant [F] Major.
His [F] weight about he’d throw, the [Gm] wicked so and so,
[C7] Who’d even smother his own mother, Our Sergeant [F] Major.
He’s [Am] far away the [Em7] worst friend [Am] we’ve ever had,
[Gm] When he’s far [D7] away well, [Gm] we’re mighty [C7] glad.
Our [F] bugler goes his rounds, and [Gm] when the bugle sounds.
For [C7] everlasting, who’s he blasting? Our Sergeant [F] Major.
Now he [F] makes raw recruits, just [Gm] tremble in their boots,
He [C7] calls them slackers, who’s gone crackers? Our Sergeant [F] Major.
His [F] feet fill up the road, knock-[Gm] kneed and pigeon toed,
[C7] We’d sooner shoot him then salute him, Our Sergeant [F] Major.
He’s [Am] far away the [Em7] worst friend [Am] we’ve ever had,
[Gm] When he’s far [D7] away well, [Gm] we’re mighty [C7] glad.
The [F] mascot goat we own, so [Gm] big and fat has grown,
[C7] Wild and warlike, he’s far more like, Our Sergeant [F] Major.

[F] Now, proud of him are we, he's [Gm] generous as can be,
So [C7] sentimental, kind and gentle, our Sergeant [F] Major.
[F] He's got a heart of gold, so fearless and so bold,
He's [C7] Sergeant Major,like a Samson; strong and handsome,
our Sergeant [F] Major,
He's [Am] far away the [Em7] best friend [Am] we've ever had,
[Gm] And when he's far [D7] away, well, we're mighty [C7] sad.
We [F] praise him to the sky, for [Gm] him we'd gladly die,
[C7] We all caress him, shout 'God bless him,' our Sergeant [F] Major.
[F] To us he is so good, [Gm] be rough he never could,
We [C7] never fear him; always cheer him, our Sergeant [F] Major.
[F] On fairy tales he's keen, [Gm] he's our good fairy queen,
He's [C7] tall and slender, sweet and tender, our Sergeant [F] Major
He's [Am] far away the [Em7] best friend [Am] we've ever had,
[Gm] And when he's far [D7] away, well, we're mighty [C7] sad.
[F] If there should be a war, [Gm] don't worry on that score,
[C7] Once we're in it, who could win it, our Sergeant [F] Major!

GF - The Bowler Hat my Grandad left to me [C]
[C] Me Grandad was a fine old man, who [A7] lived to 93
And [D7] in his will he left his favourite [G7] bowler [Dm] hat to [G7] me
[E7] When I go out wearing it, I [Am] feel a [E7] proper [Am] toff
[D7] It’s so snug and comfy I [G7} rarely [Dm] take it [G7] off
In the [C] bowler hat me grandad left to [A7] me
One [D7] summers day it was as warm as can [G7] be
I [E7] went out for a hike, there was [Am] nobo[E7]dy ab[Am]out
I [D7] felt so hot and sticky I [G7] thought I’d [Dm] cast a [G7] clout
[C] Without a stitch I lay there [A7] lazily
Then [D7] three girl guides dropped down out of a [G7] tree
When I [C] spotted the in[E7]trusion, I [Am] covered my con[Dm]fusion
[G7] With the [C] bowler hat me [G7] grandad left to [C] me

[D7] When she waved those fans around you [G7] couldn’t [Dm] see a [G7] lot

GF - Why Don’t Women Like Me
[Tune in D]
Now I [G] know I’m not [E7] handsome, [A7] no good looks or wealth
But the [D7] girls I chase say my plain face will [G] compromise their health.
Now I [G] know fellows worse than [E7] me bow-[A7] legged and boss-eyed
[A7] Walking out with lovely women clinging to their [D7] side.
Now if [G] women like them like men like those, [G] why don’t [D7] women like [G] me?
[C] Look at Empress Jose[D7]phine, the [A7] most attractive women that ever was [D7] seen,
[G] Yet Napoleon short and [E7] fat, [A7] captivates a lovely looking dame like [D7] that
Now if [G] women like them like men like those - [A7] why don’t [D7] women like [G] me?
Hey, hey, [A7] why don’t women like [G] me?
Last [G] night I went I out walking, my [A7] intentions were to click
But the [D7] sights I saw while walking out, they [G] nearly made me sick.
I must admit I saw some [E7] girls, [A7] attractive little dears
Arm in arm with ugly men with [D7] cauliflower ears.
Now if [G] women like them like men like those -[A7] why don’t [D7] women like [G] me?
[C] What can the [G] attraction be, [A7] that’s the thing that always starts to worry [G] me.
Al[G]though I haven’t got a [E7] bean, I’ve [A7] got a lot of things that girls haven’t [D7] seen.
Now if [G] women like them like men like those - [A7] why don’t [D7] women like me?
Hey, [E7] hey, [A7] why don’t [D7] women like [G] me? [D7]
Now I [G] went for my holidays down [A7] to the gay seaside,
I saw a lot of [D7] things there being [G] hidden by the tide.
The way some women [E7] jumped a[A7]round the man there in the sea
Made me think that there is still a good [D7] chance left for me.
‘Cause if [G] women like them like men like those, [A7] why don’t [D7] women like [G] me
Now if [G] women like them like men like those, [A7] why don’t [D7] women like [G] me?
[C] Take Lord Nelson with [G] one limb, [A7] Lady William Hamilton she fell for [D7] him.
With [G] one eye and one arm gone [E7] west,
She [A7] ran like the devil and she grabbed the [D7] rest.
Now if [G] women like them like men like those,
[A7] why don’t [D7] women like [G] me?

GF - You Don’t Need a License For That
[C] If you’ve a pub or a small hotel, [A7] you need a license for all you sell
You [G7] may think I’m ro[C]mancing, but
[D7] they even tax you for [G7] singing and dancing.
[C] You need a [E7] license [A] whatever you [C] do,
[A] one or two [A7] things they’ve [Dm] exempted it’s [G7] true,
[C] Lumbago, the gout or a [E7] touch of the [A7] flu,
you [D7] don’t need a license for [G7] that.
Now [C] I’ve got a [E7] license for [A] chickens to [A7] lay,
[A] one of them [A7] sat on a [Dm] brick yester [G7] day,
And [C] then started clucking, as [E7] much as to [A7] say,
he [D7] won’t need a [G7] license for [C] that.
[E7] We’d have a good time, a wines in the wood time, [A7] if it were duty free.
[D7] We’d cut the taxes, with our battle-axes, then roll out the barrel for [G7] me.
[C] Dairies must [E7] license you [A] bet on your [A7] life,
If [A] you’ve a [A7] cow then there’s [Dm] trouble and [G7] strife
As [C] Farmer Dean said when he [E7] looked at his [A7] wife,
"By gum [D7] I’ll not need a [G7] license for [C] that!"
[C] You need a [E7] license for [A] shooting down [A7] game,
But [A] I’d rather [A7] flirt with a [Dm] beautiful [G7] dame,
Cause [C] I get the sport with the [E7] birds just the [A7] same
And I [D7] don’t need a [G7] license for [C] that
[C] We sit in the pictures, as warm as a glove, [A7] in the back row of the circle above,
[D7] Two bob’s worth of dark and a [G7] basin of [C] love
and I [D7] don’t need a license for [G7] that.
[E7] We’d have a good time, a wines in the wood time, [A7] if it were duty free.
[D7] We’d cut the taxes, with our battle-axes, then roll out the barrel for [G7] me.
[C] Fishing at [E7] Richmond is [A] licensed by [A7] law,
A [A] chap to his [A7] girl said, "Now [Dm] you hold your [G7] jaw".
You [C] know exactly what [E7] I’m fishing [A7] for,
and I [D7] don’t need a license for [G7] that.
No sir, I [D7] don’t need a [G7] license for [C] that

GF – You’re Everything to Me
I [Dm7] sometimes sit and [G7] wonder just [Dm7] why I am [G7] able,

I'm [Gm7] luckier than [C7] Roosevelt, or [Gm7] Nuffield or [C7] Gable,
they've [Gm7] never been [C] in [G7] love [Caug] with [F] you

I [G7] know I'd fail where they suc[C]ceed,
But [F] though my worldly wealth are only - [D7+5] fourpence, [D7]
[G7] what more do I [C7] need?
They can [F] take away the chairs, the [Dm] carpet from the stairs and
[Bb] all that they can [A7+5] see. [A7]

[Gm7] It won't mean [Bbm6] anything [F] so long as I've got [D7+5]
you, you're every[C7]thing to [F] me.
I can [Dm7] do without cigars and [Bb] Rolls Royce motor cars and
[Bbm6] walk the way I've [F] done
And [Bb] although the weather's damp I can [Gm] do without my gamp
When you’re [Gm7] everything rolled into [Bbm6] one.
[C7] I can give up [F] all I bought, [Dm] without a single thought, [Bb] it's
not so hard you [A7+5] see. [A7]
[Gm7] It won't mean [Bbm6] anything [F] so long as I've [D7+5] got you,
[D7] you're [Gm7] every[C7]thing to [F] me.
[C7] I [F] can do without my fags or the [Dm] bottom to my bags
[budada[Bb]bum], I'd even go [A7+5] T.T. [A7]
I [Gm7] don't need [Gm7-5] anything [F] so long as I've[D7+5] got you,
[D7] you're [Gm7] every[C7]thing to [F] me. [D#6-9]
[C7] I can [F] get along with now't - [Dm] aye, and can even do without
[Bb] me Auntie Maggie's Reme[A7+5]dy [A7]
I [Gm7] don't need [Bbm6] anything [F] so long as I've [D7+5] got [D7]
you, you're [Gm7] every[C7]thing to [F] me.
I'd give [Dm7] up without a shock, my [Bb] stick of Blackpool Rock
[Gm7-5] Although it gives me lots of [F] fun.
I can [Bb] do without my pipe or my [Gm] weekly plate of tripe
For you're [Gm7] everything rolled into [Bbm6] one.
[C7] I [F] can do without my boots or [Dm] without my swimming suit,
I'd [Bb] undress in the [A7+5] sea, [A7] brrrrr
I [Gm7] don't need [Bbm6] anything [F] so long as I've got [D7+5] you,
[D7] you're [Gm7] every[C7]thing to [F] me.
[C#7] You see - [Gm7] you're every[C7]thing [F] to [Gm7-5] me. [F]

Intro: [Em] Vamp till ready

[Em] Upon a ridge he rested as he [G] went along his [B7] way
When [Em] all at once a mighty herd of red-eyed cows he saw
A'[C] plowin' through the ragged skies [Am/C]… and [Em] up a cloudy draw
[Em] Yi-pi-yi-[G] ay, Yi-pi-yi-[Em] o
[C] Ghost riders [Am/C] in the [Em] sky
[Em] Their brands were still on fire and their [G] hooves were made of steel
[Em] Their horns were black and shiny and their [G] hot breathe he could [B7] feel
A [Em] bolt of fear went through him as they thundered through the sky
For he [C] saw the riders comin' hard [Am/C] and he [Em] heard their mournful cry
[Em] Yi-pi-yi-[G] ay, Yi-pi-yi-[Em] o
[C] Ghost riders [Am/C] in the [Em] sky
[Em] Their faces gaunt, their eyes were blurred, and [G] shirts all soaked with sweat
[Em] They're ridin' hard to catch that herd but [G] they ain't caught them [B7] yet
They've [Em] got to ride forever in that range up in the sky
On [C] horses snortin' fire, [Am/C] as they [Em] ride on, hear their cry
[Em] Yi-pi-yi-[G] ay, Yi-pi-yi-[Em] o
[C] Ghost riders [Am/C] in the [Em] sky
[Em] As the riders loped on by him, he [G] heard one call his name
[Em] "If you want to save your soul from hell a [G]ridin' on our [B7] range"
"Then [Em] cowboy change your ways today or with us you will ride"
"A [C] tryin' to catch the Devil's herd [Am/C] a[Em]cross these endless skies."

[Am] An old cowboy went riding out one [C] dark and windy day
[Am] Upon a ridge he rested as he [C] went along his [E7] way
[Am] When all at once a mighty herd of red-eyed cows he saw
[F] Plowing through the ragged skies and [Am] up a cloudy draw
Yipie i-[C]oh Yipie i-[Am]ay [F] ghost riders in the [Am] sky
[Am] Their brands were still on fire and their [C] hooves were made of steel
Their [Am] horns were black and shiny and their [C] hot breath he could [E7] feel
A [Am] bolt of fear went through him as they thundered through the sky
[F] For he saw the riders coming hard and he[Am] heard their mournful cry
Yipie i-[C]oh Yipie i-[Am]ay [F] ghost riders in the [Am] sky
[Am] Their faces gaunt their eyes were blurred and their [C] shirts all soaked with
sweat
He’s [Am] riding hard to catch that herd but [C] he ain't caught 'em [E7] yet
Cause [Am] they've got to ride forever on that range up in the sky
On [F] horses snorting fire as they [Am] ride on hear their cry
[Am] As the riders loped on by him he [C] heard one call his name
If you [Am] want to save your soul from hell a riding on our range
Then [Am] cowboy change your ways today or [C] with us you will [E7] ride
[F] Trying to catch the devil’s herd [Am] across these endless skies
Yipie i-[C]oh Yipie i-[Am]ay [F] ghost riders in the [Am] sky
[F] Ghost riders in the [Am] sky
[F] Ghost riders in the [Am] sky

We [C] used to go out to [F] Grandma's house
[C] every month [G7] end or so
We’d [C] chicken pie and [F] country ham,
And [C] home made butter on the [G7] bread
But the [C] best darn thing about [F] Grandma's house
Was her [G7] great big feather [C] bed
CHORUS:
It was [C] nine feet high and six feet wide, [F] soft as a downy [C]
chick
It was made from the feathers of forty 'leven geese,
Took a [D7] whole bolt of cloth for the [G7] tick
It'd [C] hold eight kids 'n' four hound dogs
And a [F] piggy we stole from the [C] shed
We didn't get much sleep but we [F] had a lot of fun on
[G] Grandma's feather [C] bed... Intro riff [C///] [F///] [G7///] [C///]
[C] After supper we'd [F] sit around the fire,
The [C] old folks would spit and [G7] chew
[C] Pa would talk about the [F] farm and the war,
And my [C] Granny'd sing a [G7] ballad or two
I'd [C] sit and listen and [F] watch the fire
Till the [C] cobwebs filled my [G7] head
[C] Next thing I’d know I’d [F] wake up in the mornin'
In the [G7] middle of the old feather [C] bed
CHORUS
[C] Well I love my Ma, [F] I love my Pa,
Love [C] Granny and Grandpa [G7] too
Been [C] fishing with my uncle, I’ve [F] rassled with my cousin,
I even [C] kissed my [G7] Aunty [C] Lou eww!
[C] But if I ever had to [F] make a choice,
I [C] guess it ought to be [G7] said
That I'd [C] trade ‘em all plus the [F] gal down the road
For [G7] Grandma's feather [C] bed
Yes I'd [C] trade ‘em all, plus the [F] gal down the road [spoken: maybe not the gal...]
CHORUS...X2...then
Didn't get much sleep but we [F] had a lot of fun on [G] Grandma's, Grandma's
Grandma's, - feather [C] bed... outro riff [C///] [F///] [G7///] [C]

[G] You're fine, so kind.
I'm gone tell the world that you're [G7] mine mine mine mine.

Hallelujah
Intro: [C] [Am] [C] [Am]
Well I've [C] heard there was a [Am] secret chord,
That [C] David played and it [Am] pleased the Lord,
But [F] you don't really [G] care for music, [C] do [G] ya?
It [C] goes like this, the [F] 4th, the [G] 5th,
The [Am] minor fall and the [F] major lift,
The [G] baffled king com- [E7] posing halle- [Am] lujah,
Chorus
Halle- [F] lujah, halle- [Am] lujah,
halle- [F] lujah, halle [C] lu--- ---[G] jah [C] [C] [Am] [C] [Am]
Your [C] faith was strong but you [Am] needed proof,
You [C] saw her bathing [Am] on the roof,
Her [F] beauty and the [G] moonlight over- [C] threw [G] ya,
She [C] tied you to her [F] kitchen [G] chair,
She [Am] broke your throne and she [F] cut your hair,
And [G] from your lips she [E7] drew the halle- [Am] lujah,
Chorus
Well [C] baby I've been [Am] here before,
I [C] know this room and I've [Am] walked this floor,
I [F] used to [G] live a- lone before I [C] knew [G] ya.
And I've [C] seen your flag on the [F] marble [G] arch,***
And [Am] love is not a [F] victory march,
It's a [G] cold and it's a [E7] broken halle- [Am] lujah,
Chorus
There [C] was a time when you [Am] let me know,
What's [C] really going [Am] on below,
But [F] now you [G] never show it to me [C] do [G] ya.
Well re- [C] member when I moved [F] in with [G] you,
And the [Am] holy dove was [F] moving too,
And [G] every breath we [E7] drew was halle- [Am] lujah,
Chorus
May [C]be there is a [Am] God above,
But [C] all I ever [Am] learned from love,
Was [F] how to shoot at [G] someone who out- [C] drew [G] ya.
And it's [C] not a cry you can [F] hear at [G] night,
It's not [Am] somebody who's [F] seen the light,
It's a [G] cold and it's a [E7] broken halle- [Am] lujah,
Halle- [F] lujah, halle- [Am] lujah,
halle- [F] lujah, halle lu [C] --- [G] jah [C]
Halle- [F] lujah, halle- [Am] lujah,
halle- [F] lujah, halle lu [C] --- [G] jah [C]

She made me cry, you know she done me wrong
She hurt my eyes open, that's no lie
Tables turning now it’s her turn to cry

[G] You know I [D] used to love her, [C] but it's all over [G] now
[G] Well, she used to run around with every man in town
Spent all my money, playing her high class game
She put me out, it was a pity how I cried
Tables turning now it’s her turn to cry
[G] Because I [D] used to love her, [C] but it's all over [G] now
[G] You know I [D] used to love her, [C] but it's all over [G] now
[G] Well, I used to wake each morning, get my breakfast in bed
When I got worried she would ease my aching head
But now she's here and there, with every man in town
Still trying to take me for that same old clown
[G] Because I [D] used to love her, [C] but it's all over [G] now
[G] I said I [D] used to love her, [C] but it's all over [G] now

Johnny B Goode
Deep [A] down in Louisiana close to New Orleans
Way back up in the woods among the evergreens
There [D] stood a log cabin made of earth and wood
Where [A] lived a country boy named Johnny B. Goode
Who [E7] never ever learned to read or write so well, but he
could [A] play the UKULELE like a ringin’ a bell. Go…o…
Chorus
[A] Go go, Johnny go go
Go go Johnny go go
[D] Go go Johnny go go
[A] Go go Johnny go go [E7] go!
Johnny B. [A] Goode…
He used to [A] put his UKULELE in a gunny sack
and go sit beneath a tree by the railroad track.
An [D] engineers could see him sitting in the shade
[A] strummin’ to the rhythm that the drivers made
[E7] People passing by… they would stop and say
Oh [A] my but that little country boy can play. Go…o…
Chorus
His [A] mother told him “someday you will be a man”
And you will be the leader of a big ole’ band
[D] Many, many people come from miles around
to [A] hear your UKULELE till the sun go down
[E7] Maybe someday your name will be in lights
Sayin’ [A] ‘Johnny B. Goode tonight’. Go…o…
Chorus x2
Ending = Slow down, with last line having 6 beats [A]; 1 beat [E7]; 1 beat [A]

Johnny Cash Medly
Intro = [F] [Note: There are 2 Key changes within this medley]
I [F] hear the train a comin', it's rollin' 'round the bend,
And I ain't seen the sunshine, since, I don't know when,
I'm [Bb] stuck in Folsom Prison, and time keeps draggin' [F] on,
But that [C] train keeps a-rollin', on down to San An[F]tone.
When [F] I was just a baby, my Mama told me, "Son,
Always be a good boy, don't ever play with guns,"
But I [Bb] shot a man in Reno, just to watch him [F] die,
When I [C] hear that whistle blowin', I hang my head and [F] cry. / / / [G] / / /
I [G] bet there's rich folks eatin' in a fancy dining car,
They're probably drinkin' coffee, and smokin' big cigars,
But I [C] know I had it comin', I know I can't be [G] free,
But those [D] people keep a-movin', and that's what tortures [G] me.
Well, if they [G] freed me from this prison, if that railroad train was mine
I bet I'd move it on a little further down the line,
[C] Far from Folsom Prison, that's where I want to [G] stay,
And I'd [D] let that lonesome whistle, blow my Blues [G] away. / / / / / /
I keep a [D] close watch on this heart of [G] mine
I keep my [D] eyes wide open all the [G] time
I keep the [C] ends out for the tie that [G] binds
Because you're [D] mine, I walk the [G] line
I find it [D] very, very easy to be [G] true
I find my[D]self alone when day is [G] through
Yes, I'll ad[C]mit that I'm a fool for [G] you
Because you're [D] mine, I walk the [G] line
As sure as [D] night is dark and day is [G] light
I keep you [D] on my mind both day and [G] night
And happi[C]ness I've known proves that it's [G] right
Because you're [D] mine, I walk the [G] line. / / / [A] / / /
You've got a [E7] way to keep me on your [A] side
You give me [E7] cause for love that I can't [A] hide
For you I [D] know I'd try to turn the [A] tide
Because you're [E7] mine, I walk the [A] line
I keep a [E7] close watch on this heart of [A] mine
I keep my [E7] eyes wide open all the [A] time
I keep the [D] ends out for the tie that [A] binds
Because you're [E7] mine, I walk the [A] line
Because you're [E7] mine, I walk the [A] line
Because you're [E7] mine, I walk the [A] line

King of Rome
In the West End of Derby lives a working man
He says "I can't fly but me pigeons can
And when I set them free it's just like part of me
Gets lifted up on shining wings"
Charlie Edson's pigeon loft was down the yard
Of a rented house in Brook Street where life was hard
But Charlie had a dream, and in nineteen thirteen
Charlie bred a pigeon that made his dream come true
There was gonna be a champions' race from Italy
"Look at the maps, all that land and sea
Charlie, you'll lose that bird"
But Charlie never heard
He put it in a basket and sent it off to Rome
On the day o' the big race a storm blew in
A thousand birds were swept away and never seen again
"Charlie we told you so, surely by now you know
When you're living in te West End there ain't many dreams come true"
"Yeah, I know, but I had to try
A man can crawl around or he can learn to fly
And if you live 'round here, the ground seems awful near
Sometimes I need a lift from victory"
I was off with me mates for a pint or two
When I saw a wing flash up in the blue
"Charlie, it's the King of Rome, come back to his West End home
Come outside quick, he's perched up on your roof"
"Come on down, your majesty, I knew you'd make it back to me,.
Come on down, you lovely one, you made me dream come true"
In the West End of Derby lives a working man
He says "I can't fly but me pigeons can
And when I set them free it's just like part of me
Gets lifted up on shining wings"

Lord Of The Dance
d du udu / d du udu
I [G] danced in the morning when the world was begun
And I [D7] danced in the Moon & the Stars & the Sun
And I [G] came down from Heaven & I danced on Earth
At [D7] Bethlehem I [G] had my birth:
CHORUS
[G] Dance then, wherever you may be
I am the Lord of the [D7] Dance, said He!
And I'll [G] lead you all, wherever you may be
And I'll [D7] lead you all in the [G] Dance, said He!
I [G] danced for the scribe & the pharisee
But [D7] they would not dance & they wouldn't follow me
I [G] danced for fishermen, for James & John
They [D7] came with me & the [G] Dance went on: CHORUS
I [G] danced on the Sabbath & I cured the lame
The [D7] holy people said it was a shame!
They [G] whipped & they stripped & they hung me high
And they [D7] left me there on a [G] cross to die! CHORUS
I [G] danced on a Friday when the sky turned black
It's [D7] hard to dance with the devil on your back
They [G] buried my body & they thought I'd gone
But [D7] I am the Dance & I [G] still go on!
They [G] cut me down and I leapt up high
I [D7] am the Life that'll never, never die!
I'll [G] live in you if you'll live in Me [D7] I am the Lord of the [G] Dance, said He! CHORUS

[Dm] I didn't know if it was [G7] day or night
[Dm] I started kissin' every[G7]thing in sight

Perhaps I’ll [D] die [D7] upon this [G] train.
[ Perhaps he’ll [D] die [D7] upon that [G] train.]
[G] You can bury me in some deep [C] valley
For many [D] years [D7] where I may [G] lay.
[G] Then you may learn to love [C] another
While I am [D] sleeping [D7] in my [G] grave.
[While he is [D] sleeping [D7] in his [G] grave. ]
[G] Maybe your friends think I’m just a [C] stranger
My face you [D] never [D7] will see [G] again.

I’ll meet you [D] on [D7] God’s golden [G] shore.
[ He’ll meet you [D] on [D7] God’s golden [G] shore. ]

And [A] parts of Ancourt [A7] where I used to [Dm] play
I'm [F] sure he once walked down our street
for he [C] painted kids with nowt on their feet
The [G] clothes they wore had all seen better [C] days.
Now they said his works of art were dull,
no [Am] room and all the walls were full,
But [A] Lowry didn't [A7] care much any[Dm]way,
They [F] said he just paints cats and dogs
and [C] matchstalk men in boots and clogs
And [G] Lowry said that's just the way they'll [C] stay.
Chorus
And he painted [C] matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and [F] dogs,
He painted [G] kids on the corner of the street who were sparking [C] clogs,
Now he takes his brush and he waits outside those factory [F] gates
To paint his [G] matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and [C] dogs.
[C] Now canvas and brushes were wearing thin
when [Am] London started calling him
To [A] come on down and [A7] wear the old flat [Dm] cap,
They said [F] tell us all about your ways and all a[C]bout those Salford days
Is it [G] true you're just an ordinary [C] chap?
Chorus
Now Lowrys hang upon the [Am] wall beside the greatest of them all
And [A] even the Mona [A7] Lisa takes a [Dm] bow,
This [F] tired old man with hair like snow told northern [C] folk it's time to go,
The [G] fever came and the good Lord mopped his [C] brow....

Me and Bobby McGee
[C] Busted flat in Baton Rouge, headin’ for the trains
feelin’ nearly faded as my [G7] jeans
Bobby thumbed a diesel down, just before it rained
Took us all the way to New Or [C] leans
I took my harpoon out of my dirty red bandana
And was blowin’ sad while Bobby sung the [F] blues,
With them windshield wipers slapping time, and [C] Bobby clapping hands with
mine
We [G7] sang every song that driver [C] knew
Chorus :
[F] Freedom’s just another word for [C] nothing left to lose
[G7] Nothin’ ain’t worth nothin’, but it’s [C] free
[F] Feeling good was easy, Lord, when [C] Bobby sang the blues
[G7] Feeling good was good enough for me;
good enough for me and bobby Mc [C] Gee.
From the [C] coal mines of Kentucky to the California sun
Bobby shared the secrets of my [G7] soul
Standin’ right beside me, Lord, through everything I’d done
Every night she kept me from the [C] cold
Then somewhere near Selinas Lord, I let her slip away
Lookin’ for the home I hope she’ll [F] find
But I’d trade all my tomorrows for a [C] single yesterday
[G7] holdin’ Bobby’s body next to [C] mine
Chorus

[D7] ‘Cause my uncle took a message and he wrote it on the [G7] wall
[D7] Help me, information, get in touch with my Marie
She’s the only one who called me here from Memphis, Tennessee
[G] Her home is on the south side, high upon the ridge
[D7] Just a half a mile from the Mississippi [G7] bridge
[instrumental]
[D7] Help me, information, more than that I cannot add
Only that I miss her and all the fun we had
[G] But we were pulled apart because her mom would not agree
[D7] Tore apart our happy home in Memphis, [G7] Tennessee
[D7] Last time I saw Marie, she was wavin’ me goodbye
With hurry—home drops on her cheeks that trickled from her eyes
[G] Marie is only 6 years old; information please
[D7] Try to put me through to her in Memphis, [G7] Tennessee

Messing about on the River

When the [C] weather is fine you [G] know it's a sign
For [F] messing a[G7]bout on the [C] river
If you take my advice there's [G] nothing so nice
As [F] messing a[G7]bout on the [C] river
There's [F] long boats and [C] short boats and [G] all kinds of [C] craft
And [F] cruisers and [C] keel boats and [D7] some with no [G7] draft
So [C] take off your coat and [G] hop in a boat
Go [F] messing a[G7]bout on the [C] river
There are [C] boats made from kits that'll [G] r each you in bits
For [F] messing a[G7]bout on the [C] river
Or you might want to scull in a [G] fibre glass hull
Just [F] messing a[G7]bout on the [C] river
There are [F] tillers and [C] rudders and [G] anchors and [C] cleats
And [F] ropes that are [C] sometimes re [G7]ferred to as [G7] sheets
With the [C] wind in your face there's [G] no finer place
Than [F] messing a[G7]bout on the [C] river
There are [C] skippers and mates and [G] rowing club eights
Just [F] messing a [G7]bout on the [C] river
There are pontoons and trots and [G] all sorts of knots
For [F] messing a[G7]bout on the [C] river
With [F] inboards and [C] outboards and [G] dinghies you [C] sail
The [F] first thing you [C] learn is the [D7] right way to [G7] bail
In a [C] one-seat canoe, you're the [G] skipper and crew
Just [F] messing [G7]bout on the [C] river
There are [C] bridges and locks and [G] moorings and docks
When [F] messing a [G7]bout on the [C] river
There’s a whirlpools and weir that you [G] mustn't go near
When [F] messing [G7]bout on the [C] river
There are [F] backwater [C]places all [G] hidden from [C] view
And [F] quaint little [C]islands just [D7] waiting for [G7] you
So I'll [C] leave you right now, to [G] c ast off your bow
To [F] messing a[G7]bout on the [C] river

Cuddlin' more and drivin' [D] slow..
with no particular place to [G] go.

Can you imagine the way I [D] felt?
I couldn't unfasten her safety [G] belt.
[G] Ridin' along in my calaboose..still tryin' to get her belt unloose.

Pencil Full Of Lead – Paulo Nutini

[D] And some water for my throat
I've got [G] buttons for my coat; and sails on my boat [D] So much
more than I needed before
[A7] I got money in the meter and a [G] two bar heater
[D] Now it's getting hotter; Oh it's only getting sweeter
[D] I got legs on my chairs and a head full of hair
Pot and a pan, and some shoes on my feet;
[G] I got a shelf full of books and most of my teeth
[D] A few pairs of socks and a door with a lock
[A7] I got food in my belly and a [G] license for my telly
And [D] nothing's going to bring me down
[D] But best of all [best of all], I've got my baby
[G] But best of all [best of all], I've got my baby
She's [A7] mighty fine and says [G] she's all mine
And [D] nothing's going to bring me down
[D] I got a nice guitar and tyres on my car
I got most of the means; and scripts for the scenes
[G] I'm out and about, so I'm in with a shout
I got a [D] fair bit of chat but better than that
[A7] Food in my belly and a [G] license for my telly
And [D] nothing's going to bring me down[A7]
[D] Nothing's going to bring me down
[D] But best of all [best of all], I've got my baby
[G] But best of all [best of all], I've got my baby
She's [A7] mighty fine and says [G] she's all mine

as I walked round and round the penny ar[G]cade.
[G7] "Just ring the bell on the big bagatelle
and you'll make all the coloured lights cas[C]cade".
And music [F] played in the penny ar[C]cade.
Yes, it [F] played and it played, [G] played all the time
[C] "Roll up and [F] spend your last [C] dime!"
At first I thought it a dream that I was [F] in.
Lost , [D7] lost in a sea of glass and [G] tin.
But no, [C] so dipping my hand in the back of my [F] jeans,
I [D7] grabbed a handful of coins to feed the [G] mach[F]i[C]nes.
Chorus

Pub With No Beer
[C] Oh it's lonesome a[C7]way from your [F] kindred and all
By the [G7] campfire at night where the wild dingos [C] call
But there's nothin' so [C7] lonesome [F] morbid or drear
Than to [G7] stand in the bar of a pub with no [C] beer
[C] Now the publican's [C7] anxious for the [F] quota to come
And there's a [G7] faraway look on the face of the [C] bum
[C] The maid's gone all [C7] cranky and the [F] cook's acting queer
What a [G7] terrible place is a pub with no [C] beer
[C] Then the stockman rides [C7] up with his [F] dry dusty throat
He breasts [G7] up to the bar and pulls a wad from his [C] coat
But the smile on his [C7] face quickly [F] turns to a sneer
As the [G7] barman says sadly the pub's got no [C] beer
[C] Then the swaggie comes [C7] in smothered [F] in dust and flies
He [G7] throws down his roll and rubs the sweat from his [C] eyes
But when he is [C7] told he says [F] what's this I hear
I've trudged [G7] fifty flamin' miles to a pub with no [C] beer
[C] There's a dog on the ve[C7]randah for his [F] master he waits
But the [G7] boss is inside drinking wine with his [C] mates
He hurries for [C7] cover and he [F] cringes in fear
It's no [G7] place for a dog round a pub with no [C] beer
[C] Old Billy the [C7] blacksmith the first [F] time in his life
Has [G7] gone home cold sober to his darling [C] wife
He walks in the [C7] kitchen she says you're [F] early my dear
But then he [G7] breaks down and tells her
That the pub's got no [C] beer
So it's [C] lonesome a[C7] way from your [F] kindred and all
By the [G7] campfire at night where the wild dingos [C] call
But there's nothin' so [C7] lonesome [F] morbid or drear
Than to [G7] stand in the bar of a pub with no [C] beer

Putting On The Style - Lonnie Donegan

Laughs and screams and giggles at every little [C] noise
Turns her face a little and [C7] turns her head a[F]while
But [G7 stop] everybody knows she’s only putting on the [C] style.

[G7 stop] But she knows he’s only putting on the [C] style.
[C] Putting on the agony, putting on the [G7] style
That’s what all the young folks are doing all the [C] while

[C] Preacher in the pulpit roars with all his [G7] might

Now you might think it’s Satan that’s [C7] coming down the [F] aisle
But it’s [G7 stop] only our poor preacher, boys, putting on the [C] style.
[C] Putting on the agony, putting on the [G7] style

Ragged But I'm Right

I'm a tramp and a rounder and I [C] stay out late at night
A [F] porterhouse steak three times a [C] day for my [A] board
That's [D] more than any rambler in this [G7] old town can afford
Well, a [C] big 'lectric fan to keep me [G7] cool while I sleep
A little baby girl to play a-[C] round Daddy's feet
I'm a [F] rambler, I'm a gambler, and I [C] lead every [A] life
But I [D] tell you folks, I'm [G7] ragged but I'm [C] right
Well, [C] when I got married, I [G7] knew I'd settle down
Build a little love nest right [C] here in my home town
Well, I [F] got me a family, [C] one that I'm proud [A] of
And I [D] know they're the ones that [G7] I'm thinking of
A [C] big 'lectric fan to keep me [G7] cool while I sleep
A little baby boy to play a-[C] round Daddy's feet
I'm a [F] rambler, I'm a gambler, and I [C] lead every [A] life
But I [D] tell you folks, I'm [G7] ragged but I'm [C] right

It won’t be long till [A9] happiness steps [Dm] up to greet me [G7]
[C] Raindrops keep falling on my [Cmaj7] head, but
[C7] that doesn’t mean my eyes will [F] soon be turning [Em7] red
[A7] Cryin’s not for [Em7] me [A7] ‘cause

To [D] fly down to [F#m] Rio to[B7]night
And I [Em7] probably won't fly down to [Gm] Rio

There's [D] wings to the thought behind [Bb] fancy
There's [D] wings to the thought behind [Am7] play
And [D] dancing to rhythms of [B7] laughter
Makes [Em7] laughter the rhythm of [A7] rain

That's why I go for that...

Skinned our [G] hearts and skinned our knees. [C]

You tried to [G] teach me right from [C] wrong,
Too much wine and too much song; [Dm]
Wonder [G] how I got along.[C]
Good bye Papa it`s hard to die, when all the birds are singing [Dm] in the sky,

Good bye Michelle it`s hard to die, when all the birds are singing [Dm] in the sky,
Now that the [G] spring is in the [C] air.
With the flowers every[Dm]where,
I wish that [G] we could both be there. [C]
We had joy, we had fun, we had [Dm] seasons in the sun,
But the [G] stars we could reach were just [G7] starfish on the beach. [C]
We had joy, we had fun, we had [Dm] seasons in the sun,
But the [G] wine and the song like the [G7] seasons have all [C] gone.

So Long Marianne - Leonard Cohen
Intro: [A] [Asus4] [A] [Asus4]
[A] Come over to the window my little [Bm] darling
[d] I'd like to try to read your [A] palm
[G] I used to think I was some kind of [d] gypsy boy
[Em] Before I let you take me [E7] home
Chorus: Now [A] so long Marianne [Em] it's time we began
To [E7] laugh and cry and cry and laugh about it [A] all again [Asus4] [A] [Asus4]
[A] Well you know that I love to [Bm] live with you
[d] But you make me forget so very [A] much
[G] I forget to pray for the [Gd angels
And then the [Em] angels forget to pray for [E7] us
Chorus
[A] We met when we were [Bm] almost young
[d] Deep in the green lilac [A] park
[G] You held on to me like I was a [d] crucifix
[Em] As we went kneeling through the [E7] dark
Chorus
[A] Your letters they all say that you're be[Bm]side me now
[d] Then why do I feel a[A]lone
[G] I'm standing on a ledge and your [d] fine spider web
Is [Em] fastening my ankle to a [E7] stone
Chorus
[A] For now I need your [Bm] hidden love
[d] I'm cold as a new razor [A] blade
[G] You left when I told you I was [d] curious
[Em] I never said that I was [E7] brave
Chorus
[A] Oh you are really such a [Bm] pretty one
[d] I see you've gone and changed your [A] name again
[G] And just when I climbed this whole [d] mountainside
[Em] To wash my eye[E7]lids in the rain
Chorus [A]

Something Stupid - Frank and Nancy Sinatra
Intro: | [Am] [D7] | [Am9] [D7] | [G] | [G] |
I [G] know I stand in [Em7] line until you [Gmaj7] think you have the [G] time
To spend an [Am] evening with [D7] me [Am9] [D7]
And [Am] if we go some [D7] place to dance I [Am9] know that there's a [D7] chance
You won't be [Gmaj7] leaving with [Em7] me [Gmaj7]
And [G] afterwards we [Dm7] drop into a [G7] quiet little place and have a [Cmaj7]
drink or two [Eb]
And [Am] then I go and [D7] spoil it all by [Am9] saying something [D7] stupid like I
[G] love you
I can [G7] see it in your [Dm7] eyes that you des[G7]pise
The same old lines you heard the [Cmaj7] night before
And [A7] though it's just a [Em7] line to you for [A7] me it's true
And never seemed so [Am9] right be[D7]fore [Am] [D7]
I [G] practise every [Em7] day to find some [Gmaj7] clever lines to [G] say
To make the [Am] meaning come [D7] true [Am9] [D7]
But [Am] then I think I'll [D7] wait until the [Am9] evening gets [D7] late and I'm
[Gmaj7] alone with [Em7] you [Gmaj7]
The [G] time is right your [Dm7] perfume fills my [G7] head
The stars get red and oh the [Cmaj7] night’s so blue [Eb]
And [Am] then I go and [D7] spoil it all by [Am9] saying something [D7] stupid like I
[G] love you

Sounds of Silence
[Am] Hallo darkness, my old [G] friend, I`ve come to talk to you [Am] again,
because a [C] vision softly [F] is cree[C]ping,
left its seeds while I [F] was slee[C]ping,
and the [F] vision that was planted in my [C] brain, still re[Am]mains,
within the [G] sound of [Am] silence.
[Am] In restless dreams I walked [G] alone, narrow streets of cobble-[Am]stone.
`Neath the [C] halo of [F] a street [C] lamp,
I turned my collar to the [F] cold and [C] damp,
when my [F] eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon [C] light,
that split the [Am] night - and touched the [G] sound of [Am] silence.
[Am] And in the naked light I [G] saw, ten thousand people, maybe [Am] more,
people [C] talking wi[F]thout spea[C]king, people hearing wi[F]thout [C] listening,
people writing [F] songs that voices never [C] share,
and no-one [Am] dare - disturb the [G] sounds of [Am] silence.
[Am] Fools, said I, you do not [G] know, silence like a cancer [Am] grows,
hear my [C] words, that I [F] might teach [C] you,
take my arms that I [F] might reach [C] you,
But my [F] words like silent raindrops [C] fell - [Am]
and echoed in the [G] wells of [Am] silence.
[Am] And the people bowed and [G] prayed to the neon god they`d [Am] made.
And the [C] sign flashed out [F] its war[C]ning, in the words that it [F] was for[C]ming.
And the sign said, the [F] words of the prophets are written
in the subway [C] walls, and tenement [Am] halls ,
and whispered in the [G] sounds - of [Am] silence.

Stop Stop Stop
[D] See the girl with cymbals on her fingers, entering through the door
Ruby glistening from her navel, shimmering around the floor
Bells on feet go ting-a ling-a linging, going through my head
Sweat is falling just-a like-a tear drop, running from her head
[D] Now she's dancing, going through the movements, swaying to and fro
Body moving, bringing back a memory, thoughts of long ago
Blood is rushing, temperature is rising, sweating from my brow
Like a snake, her body fascinates me, I can't look away now
[G] Stop, stop, stop all the dancing [A] give me time to breathe
[G] Stop, stop, stop all the dancing [A] or I'll have to leave
[D] Now she's moving all around the tables, luring all in sight
But I know that she cannot see me, hidden by the light
Closer, closer, she is getting nearer, soon she'll be in reach
As I enter into a spotlight, she stands lost for speech
[G] Stop, stop, stop all the dancing [A] give me time to breathe
[G] Stop, stop, stop all the dancing [A] or I'll have to leave
[G] Stop, stop, stop all the dancing [A] give me time to breathe
[G] Stop, stop, stop all the dancing [A] or I'll have to leave
[D] |Now I hold her, people are staring, don’t know what to think
And we struggle knocking over tables, spilling all the drinks
Can’t they understand that I want her, happens every week.
Heavy hand upon my collarbone throws me into the street
[G] Stop, stop, stop all the dancing [A] give me time to breathe

Suzanne
[F] Suzanne takes you down to her place by the river
You can [Gm] hear the boats go by you can spend the night beside her
And you [F] know that she's half crazy but that's why you want to be there
And she [Am] feeds you tea and oranges that come [Bb] all the way from China
And just [F] when you mean to tell her that you [Gm] have no love to give her
Then she [F] gets you on her wavelength and she [Gm] lets the river answer
That you've [F] always been her lover
And you [Am] want to travel with her and you [Bb] want to travel blind
And you [F] know that she will trust you
For you've [Gm] touched her perfect body with your [F] mind
[F] And Jesus was a sailor when He walked upon the water
And He [Gm] spent a long time watching from his lonely wooden tower
And [F] when He knew for certain only drowning men could see Him
He said [Am] All men will be sailors then un[Bb]til the sea shall free them
But [F] He Himself was broken long be[Gm]fore the sky would open
For[F]saken almost human. He [Gm] sank beneath your wisdom like a [F] stone
And you [Am] want to travel with him and you [Bb] want to travel blind
And you [F] think maybe you'll trust him
For he's [Gm] touched your perfect body with his [F] mind
[F] Suzanne takes your hand and she leads you to the river
She is [Gm] wearing rags and feathers from Salvation Army counters
And the [F] sun pours down like honey on our lady of the harbor
And she [Am] shows you where to look among the [Bb] garbage and the flowers
There are [F] heroes in the seaweed there are [Gm] children in the morning
They are [F] leaning out for love and they will [Gm] lean that way forever
While Su[F]zanne holds the mirror
And you [Am] want to travel with her and you [Bb] want to travel blind
And you [F] know that you will trust her
For she's [Gm] touched your perfect body with her [F] mind

And the [D7] songs we sang [G7] together on the Blackpool [C] Belle. [G7]
[C] Little Piggy [Am] Greenfield he [C] was [Am] there.
He [C] thought he was [Am] mighty [G7] slick.
He [Dm] bought a [G7] hat on the [Dm] Golden Mile [G7]
and the [Dm] hat said "[G7] Kiss me [C] quick".
Piggy was a lad for all the girls, but he [C7] drank too much [F] beer.
He made a pass at a [C] Liver[A7] pool lass and she [Dm] pushed him [G7] off the [C] pier.
CHORUS
[C] Ice-cream [Am] Sally could [C] never settle [Am] down.
She [C] lived for her[Am] Knickerbocker [G7] Glories,
Till she [Dm] clicked with a [G7] bloke who [Dm] said he was [G7] broke,
but she [Dm] loved his [G7] ice-cream [C] stories.
She took it all in with a smile and a grin. She [C7] fell for Sailor [F] Jack.
They went for a trip to the [C] Isle of [A7] Man and [Dm] never [G7] did come [C] back.
CHORUS
Now [C] some of us [Am] went up the [C] Blackpool [Am] Tower,
[C] others in the [Am] Tunnel of [G] Love.
A [Dm] few made [G7] off for the [Dm] Blackpool [G7] Sands [Dm] under the [G7] pier [C] above.
There was always a rush at the midnight hour, but we [C7] made it just the [F] same,
And I made off with a [C] Liver[A7]pool lass, but I could [Dm] never re[G7] member her [C] name.

The Boxer Simon and Garfunkel [in F]
[F] I am just a poor boy though my story's seldom [Dm] told
I have [C] squandered my resistance
For a [C7] pocket full of mumbles such are [F] promises
[Dm] All lies and jests still a [C] man hears what he [Bb] wants to hear
And disregards the [F] rest Hm[C7]mmmm
When I [F] left my home and my family I was no more than a [Dm] boy
In the [C] company of strangers
In the [C7] quiet of the railway station [F] running scared
[Dm] Laying low seeking [C] out the poorer [Bb] quarters
Where the ragged people [F] go
Looking [C7] for the places [Bb] only they would [F] know
Lie la [Dm] lie Lie la [Am] lie lie lie lie lie Lie la [Dm] lie la lie [C7] lie lie [F]
[F] Asking only workman's wages I come looking for a [Dm] job
But I get no [C] offers,
Just a [C7] come‐on from the whores on Seventh [F] Avenue
[Dm] I do declare there were [C] times when I was [Bb] so lonesome
I took some comfort [F] there Lie la lie [C7] [Bb] [F]
[F] Then I'm laying out my winter clothes and wishing I was [Dm] gone
Going [C] home
Where the [C7] New York City winters aren't [F] bleeding me
[Am] Bleeding me [Dm] going [C] home
In the [F] clearing stands a boxer and a fighter by his [Dm] trade
And he [C] carries the reminders
Of [C7] ev'ry glove that laid him down or [F] cut him till he cried out
In his anger and his [Dm] shame I am [C] leaving I am [Bb] leaving
But the fighter still re[F]mains mmm[C7]mmmm [Bb] [F]

This ole [C] house once knew my children,
this ole [F] house once knew my wife;
This ole [G] house was home and comfort
as we [C] fought the storms of life.

when the[C] lightnin' walks about.

Ain't a-gonna[F] need this house no longer,
Ain't a-gonna [C] need this house no more;
Ain't got [G] time to fix the shingles, ain't got [C] time to fix the floor,
Ain't got[F] time to oil the hinges nor to [C] mend the win-dow-[Am7] pane;
Ain't gonna[G] need this house no longer
I'm a-gettin' [C]ready to meet the saints.
This ole [C] house is a-gettin' shaky,
this ole [F] house is a-gettin' old;
This ole [G] house lets in the rain,
this ole [C] house lets in the cold.
Oh, my [C] knees are a-gettin' shaky,
but I [F] feel no fear nor pain,
'Cause I [G] see an angel peekin' through

Tower of Song Leonard Cohen
From: Richard G’s Ukulele Songbook www.scorpex.net/Uke
[C] Well my friends are gone and my hair is grey
I ache in the places where I [C7] used to play
And I'm [F] crazy for love [F7] but I'm not coming [C] on
I'm just [G7] paying my rent every[F]day in the [F7] tower of [C] song
[C] I said to Hank Williams how lonely does it get
Hank Williams hasn't [C7] answered yet
But I [F] hear him coughing [F7] all night [C] long
A [G7] hundred floors above me [F] in the [F7] tower of [C] song
[C] I was born like this I had no choice.
I was born with the gift of a [C7] golden voice
And [F] 27 angels [F7] from the great be[C]yond
They [G7] tied me to this table right [F] here in the [F7] tower of [C] song
[C] So you can stick your little pins in that voodoo doll
I'm very sorry baby doesn't [C7] look like me at all
I'm [F] standing by the window [F7] where the light is [C] strong
They don't [G7] let a woman kill you [F] not in the [F7] tower of [C] song
[C] Now you can say that I've grown bitter but of this you may be sure:
The rich have got their channels in the [C7] bedrooms of the poor
And there's a [F] mighty judgment coming [F7] but I may be [C] wrong
You see you [G7] hear these funny voices [F] in the [F7] tower of [C] song
[Am] I see you standing on the [G] other side
[Am] I don't know how the river [G] got so wide
I [F] loved you baby [F7] way back [C] when
[Am] And all the bridges are burning that we [G] might have crossed
[Am] But I feel so close to every[G]thing that we lost
We'll [F] never have to lose it a[G7]gain
[C] I bid you farewell I don't know when I'll be back
They're moving us tomorrow to that [C7] tower down the track
But you'll be [F] hearing from me baby [F7] long after I'm [C] gone
I'll be [G7] speaking to you sweetly from a [F] window
In the [F7] tower of [C] song

It [C] doesn’t matter [Am] who you are
Or [C] where you come from, [Am] near or far
You [F] could be Greek, Bra-[G]-zilian or Is-[C]-raeli [G]
No-[C]-one will want to [F] be your [G] friend
Be-[Am]-cause you drive them [F] round the bend
And [G] irritate them [E7] with your uku-[Am]-lele

[C] [Am] [C] [Am]

From [C] jazz, thrash-metal, [F] country, [G] pop
To [Am] little stick of [F] Blackpool Rock
You'll [G] hear them all [E7] upon my uku-[Am]-lele
Uku-[F]-lele, uku-[Am]-lele
Uku-[F]-lele, uku-[C]-le-----[G]-le [C]

Waltzing Matilda
Version from original lyrics by Banjo Paterson 1895
[C] Once a jolly [G7] swagman [C] camped by a [F] billabong,
[C] Under the shade of a [G7] coolibah tree,
And he [C] sang as he [G7] watched and [C] waited till his [F]billy boiled
[C] You'll come a waltzing Ma [G7]tilda with [C] me
Chorus:
[C] Waltzing Matilda, [F] Waltzing Matilda
[C] You'll come a waltzing Ma[G7]tilda with me
And he [C] sang as he [G7] watched and [C] waited till his [F] billy boiled
[C] You'll come a waltzing Ma[G7]tilda with [C] me.
[C] Down came a [G7] jumbuck to [C] drink at the [F] billabong
[C] Up jumped the swagman and [G7] grabbed him with glee
And he [C] sang as he [G7] stowed that [C] jumbuck in his [F] tuckerbag
[C] You'll come a waltzing Ma[G7]tilda with [C] me
Chorus
[C] Up rode the [G7] squatter [C] mounted on his [F] thoroughbred,
[C] Up rode the troopers, [G7] one, two, three.
[C] "Where's the jolly [G7] jumbuck [C] you've got in your [F] tuckerbag?
[C] You'll come a waltzing Ma-[G7]tilda with [C] me “
Chorus
[C] Up jumped the [G7] swagman and [C] sprang into the [F] billabong,
[C] "You'll never take me a[G7]live," cried he
[Slower]
And his [C] ghost may be [G7] heard as you [C] ride beside the [F] billabong,
[C] "You'll never take me a-[G7] live," cried [C] he.

[Gm7] Maybe [Am] it's a [C] dream come true

[F] Wish I could tell you how [Dm] much I care
But [G7] I only have the nerve to [Gm7] stare [C7]

Just anytime that someone speaks your [C7] name

I rem[C]ember the back [Em] streets of Naples, two [F] children begging in [G] rags
Both [C] touched with a burning am[Em]bition
To [F] shake off off their lowly born [G] tags, yes they [G7] try [Em7] [G]
So [C] look into my face Marie [Em] Claire and [F] remember just who you [G] are
Then [C] go and forget me for[Em]ever, but
I [F] know you still bear the [G] scar, deep [G7] inside, yes you [Em7] do [G]
I [C] know where you go to my [Em] lovely [F] When you’re alone in your [G] bed

Whiskey In The Jar
Intro: [C] As I was a goin' over the [Am] far famed Kerry mountains
I [F] met with Captain Farrell and his [C] money he was counting
I [C] first produced my pistol and I [Am] then produced my rapier
Said [F] "Stand and deliver" for you [C] are my bold deceiver
Chorus
With me [G] ring dum-a doo dum-a da
[C] Whack for the daddy-o. [F] whack for the daddy-o
There's [C] whiskey [G7] in the [C] jar.
I [C] counted out his money and it [Am] made a pretty penny
I [F] put it in me pocket and I [C] brought it home to Jenny
She [C] said and she swore that she [Am] never would deceive me
But the [F] devil take the women for they [C] never can be easy [Chorus]
I [C] went into my chamber, all [Am] for to take a slumber
I [F] dreamt of gold and jewels and for [C] sure it was no wonder
But [C] Jenny drew me charges and she [Am] filled them up with water
Then [F] sent for captain Farrell to be [C] ready for the slaughter. [Chorus]
It was [C] early in the morning, just be[Am]fore I rose to travel
The [F] guards were all around me and [C] likewise Captain Farrell
I [C] first produced me pistol for she [Am] stole away me rapier
But I [F] couldn't shoot the water, so a [C] prisoner I was taken. [Chorus]
If [C] anyone can aid me, it's my [Am] brother in the army,
If [F] I can find his station in [C] Cork or in [Am] Killarney.
And [C] if he'll come and save me, we'll go [Am] roving near Kilkenny,
and I [F] swear he'll treat me better than me [C] darling sportling Jenny. [Chorus]
Now [C] some men take delight in the [Am] drinking and the roving,
But [F] others take delight in the [C] gambling and the smoking.
But [C] I take delight in the [Am] juice of the barley,
and [F] courting pretty Jenny in the [C] morning bright and early.

You Never Can Tell – Chuck Berry
It was a [C] teenage wedding, and the old folks wished them well.
You could see that Pierre did truly love the mademoi[G7]selle.
And now the young monsieur and madam have rung the chapel bell,
'C'est la vie', say the old folks, it goes to show you never can [C] tell.
They furnished [C] off an apartment with a two room Roebuck sale.
The coolerator was crammed with TV dinners and ginger [G7] ale.
But when Pierre found work, the little money comin' worked out well.
'C'est la vie', say the old folks, it goes to show you never can [C] tell.
They had a [C] hi-fi phono, oh boy, did they let it blast.
Seven hundred little records, all rock, rhythm and [G7] jazz.
But when the sun went down, the rapid tempo of the music fell.
'C'est la vie', say the old folks, it goes to show you never can [C] tell.
They bought a [C] souped-up jitney, 'twas a cherry red '53.
They drove it down New Orleans to celebrate their anniversa[G7]ry.
It was there that Pierre was married to the lovely mademoiselle.
C'est la vie', say the old folks, it goes to show you never can [C] tell.

And [F] when you're not you're [C] with
Some underworld [G] spy or the [F] wife of a close friend
Wife of a close friend and
Repeat Chorus x 2 - finish on [Am]
