E
Standing in the dock at Southampton

Trying to get to Holland Or France
    E7
The Man In the Mac said

You gotta go back

you know they didnt even give us a chance
                 A
you know it aint easy
                         E
you know how hard it can be
                   B7
the way things are going ...
                     E
theyre gonna crucify me.

Finally made the plane into paris
honeymooning down by the seine
peter brown called to say
you can make it ok
you can get married in gibraltar near spain ..

you know it aint easy.... etc

Drove from paris to the amsterdam hilton
talking in our beds for a week
the newspapers said
whatre you doing in bed
i said we're only trying to get us some peace ...

you know it aint easy...etc


A
saving all your money for a rainy day
giving all your clothes to charity

B7
last nite the wife said
oh boy when youre dead
                                     B
You dont take nothing with you but your soul

E
Think!

From: Harlan L Thompson <harlant@uhunix.uhcc.Hawaii.Edu>

[final two verses corrected]

Made a lightning trip to Vienna
Eating chocolate cake in a bag
The newspapers said, "She's gone to his head
They look just like two gurus in drag" ...CHORUS

Caught the early plane back to London
Fifty acorns tied in a sack
The men from the press say "We wish you success
It's good to have the both of you back"...CHORUS


(from Past Masters 2, originally released as a single in 1969)

Why did you take the time to tab out the bassline and not the guitar fills? Plus it's pretty obvious that he says "CHRIST, ya know it ain't easy". I give it a 4
