         E                    A
He had a stroke at the age of 24
     A                           E
It could have been a brilliant career
         C#m         B                        A
Painting lines in a school that was too well known
         C#m            B                     A
Painting lines with a friend that had gone before
         E           B
She challenged everyone to a fight
          A       E          B
But the prefects all backed down
          A       E       B
And they ran her out of town
           A         E         B
Cause she drank and swore and spoke
        A         E        F#
Out of turn, she was the village joke

           E                    A
She had a stroke at the age of 24
     A                           E
It could have been a brilliant career
          C#m         B            A
Getting clients to finance her strategies
         C#m          B            A
Filling time in on Safeways on Saturday
          E              B
She wears the clothes of an emperor
          A        E     B
But her paintings are a sham
              A     E    B
And they're going for a grand
           A      E       B
When the dealers come to view
         A     E         F#
Do they ever see the real you?

          E                    A
He had a stroke at the age of 24
    A                             E
It could have been a brilliant career
         C#m          B                A
Selling lies to the boys with the old Dansettes
            C#m                B              A
Pulling the wool, playing the fool, it's no wonder that
He is dribbling spit tonight
         A      E     B
And the one he sent away
         A     E      B
Was the only one who stayed
        A            E     B
With a spoon and a decent book
             A           E       B
And you can tell by the way she looks 
        A    E     B
he is sorry and resigned
       A     E             F#
As he wets himself for the final time

Good tab mate, great tune also. You've done it proud.
I think there's a C#m before the E then B in "challenged everyone to a fight". Sounds right to me
