My Wandering Days Are Over – Belle & Sebastian
----------------------------------------------

Updated by Caz1977.

This is really just an update of the other version here but with full lyrics and a 
change of chords in the last verse and chorus. Simple but fun. Enjoy.


Chords: D:     XX0232
        Dsus2: XX0230
        A:     X02220
        F#m:   244222
        G:     320003 or 320033 or 355433
        C:     X32010
        Gm:    355333
        F:     133211

Intro:
------
It alternates between D and Dsus2, listen to the song for the rhythm and correct timing. 
is the same little riff that happens quite a bit throughout the song, mostly in the verses.


Verse 1:
--------
D
Y' know my wandering days are over
	  A	                F#m
Does that mean that I'm getting boring?
	 G
You tell me

I'm tired of listening to myself, yeah
                                               D
I'm tired of fixing things for Michael and the rest of them


Verse 2:
--------
           D
Y' know my bip-bopping days are over
          A                   F#m                  G
I hung my boots up and then retired from the disco floor

The centre of my so called being is
                                                 D
The space between your bed and wardrobe with the louvre doors
          A
(With the louvre doors)


Verse 3:
--------
D
Y' know my celibate days are over
           A                     F#m                   G
You put me straight on the finer points of my speech rehearsed

In the mirror of my steamy bathroom
                                        D
Where the lino tells a sorry story in a monologue
       A
 (In a monologue)


Chorus:
-------
D                  G
Six months on, the winter's gone
    D            G
The disenchanted pony
D                      G
Left the town with the circus boy
    C              G
The circus boy got lonely
     D                G
It's summer, and it's sister song's
     D               G
Been written for the lonely
    C                          G
The circus boy is feeling melancholy

Bridge:
-------

D    A    F#m    G    D    A  (x2)

Verse 4:
--------
     D
It's got to be fate that's doing it
         A               F#m                    G
A spooky witch in a sexy dress has been bugging me

With the story of the way it should be
                                          D
With the story of Sebastian and Belle the singer, yeah


Verse 5:
--------
           D
Y' know my one man band is over
          A                  F#m               G
I hit the drum for the final time and I walked away

I saw you in Japanese restaurant
                      Gm                  D
You were doing it for business men on the piano, Belle
                  A
You said it was a living Hell
                    G
You said you were in Hell


Chorus 2:
---------
D                  G
Six months on, the winter's gone
    D            G
The disenchanted pony
D                      G
Left the town with the circus boy
    C              G
The circus boy got lonely
     D                G
It's summer, and it's sister song's
     D               G
Been written for the lonely
    C                          G
The circus boy is feeling melancholy

Chorus 3:
---------
D                  G
Six months on, the winter's gone
    D            G
The disenchanted pony
D                      G
Left the town with the circus boy
    D              G
The circus boy got lonely
     A                F
It's summer, and it's sister song's
     A               F
Been written for the lonely
    A             F            G       F
The circus boy is feeling melancholy


G     F  repeated to fade out.
The lyrics are a few words from the last 2 lines of the chorus and a bit of ad-libbing.

The end of the chorus is Bm, A, then G. like this:


Bm A G
The circus boy is feeling melancholy


There are also no C's in this song. The C's in the chorus (except where I noted above) should all be D's
