Tabbed by Dan Hamer (footyfandan@hotmail.com)

This is a tab submitted to correct someone elses version of the song, which I reckon is
Rhythm is really easy, the only real point being that the A in the chorus is just simply
downstrokes and releasing your fingers from the fret board after each stroke from what I 
pick up. Don't know what the technical name for that is but I hope you understand. Enjoy!

Standard Tuning (EADGBE)
CAPO ON 2ND FRET

Intro: D  Bm  G  A

      D                              Bm
From Northernden to Partington it's rain
      G                             A
From Altrincham to Chadderton it's rain
      D                           Bm
From Moss Side to Swinton hardly Spain
        G                                    A
It's a picture postcard of 'wish they never came'

                 G                                   D
And whilst that deckchair in the garden it makes no sense
    A                                 D
It doesn't spoil the view or cause offence
       G                      D
Those Floridas, Bavarias and Kents
      A                                    D
Make gentlemen wear shorts but don't make gents

      D
So convertibles stay garage-bound
     Bm
Save after-sun for later
   G
If rain makes Britain great
     A
Then Manchester is greater
       D
As you dry your clothes once again
  Bm
Upon the radiator
G
What makes Britain great
      A
Makes Manchester yet greater

D  Bm  G  A

     D                                Bm
From Cheetham Hill to Wytenshawe it's rain
G                                     A
Gorton, Salford, Sale pretty much the same
       D                             Bm
As I'm caught without my jacket once again
    G                                   A
The raindrops on my face play a sweet refain

       G                           D
And as winter turns reluctantly to spring
        A                                      D
For the clouds above the city there's one last fling
G                                     D
Swallows build their nests, chaffinch sing
        A                                    D
And the sun strolls into town like long lost king

      D
So convertibles stay garage-bound
     Bm
Save after-sun for later
   G
If rain makes Britain great
     A
Then Manchester is greater
       D
As you dry your clothes once again
  Bm
Upon the radiator
G
What makes Britain great
      A
Makes Manchester yet greater

        G                                  D
And the mood of this whole sodden place is melancholy
         A                                       D
Like the sun came out to play, shone through the clouds but dropped its lolly
    G                               D
And everyone looks so disappointed, so, so sorry
         A                                  D
Like the rain blew into town, kidnapped the sun and stole it's brolly

G  A  D

      D
So convertibles stay garage-bound
     Bm
Save after-sun for later
   G
If rain makes Britain great
     A
Then Manchester is greater
       D
As you dry your clothes once again
  Bm
Upon the radiator
G
What makes Britain great
      A
Makes Manchester yet greater

Well. This is effin' good. Works brilliantly. In addition - Barre chords for G and A in the chorus make it a leeetle
bit easier - plus it sounds good too!
