James Blunt - Billy

(As James plays the track live)

Capo 3

Intro

Em G D x2

Verse 1

Em     G         D
Billy's leaving today (don't know where he's going).
Em          G         D
Holds his head in disgrace (he can't escape the truth).
Em                G                    D
He knows the price that he's paid.
He admits that it's too
C9                          D
Late to admit that he's afraid.

Chorus
         G             Em             D
Tomorrow comes. Sorrow becomes his soul mate.
              G                  Em             D
The damage is done. The prodigal son is too late.
    Em                  G           D
Old doors are closed but he's always open,
          C9              D
To relive time in his mind.
Oh Billy.


Em G D x2

Verse 2

Em       G      D
Billy's leaving today (don't know where he's going).
Em       G            D
He's got lines on his face (they tell the story of his pain).
Em  G               D
He accepts it's his fate.
He admits it took too
C9                       D
Long to admit that he was wrong.

Chorus
         G             Em             D
Tomorrow comes. Sorrow becomes his soul mate.
              G                  Em             D
The damage is done. The prodigal son is too late.
    Em                  G           D
Old doors are closed but he's always open,
          C9              D
To relive time in his mind.
Oh Billy.

Em G D x2


Bridge

C9                  Em
Once he was a lover sleeping with another.
G                             D
Now he's just known as a cheat.
       C9                      Em
And he wish he'd had a mirror; looked a little clearer.
G                             D
Seen into the eyes of the weak.

C9                  Em
Once he was a lover sleeping with another.
G                             D
Now he's just known as a cheat.
       C9                      
And he wish he'd had a mirror; looked a little clearer.
D
Seen into the eyes of the weak.

Chorus
         G             Em             D
Tomorrow comes. Sorrow becomes his soul mate.
              G                  Em             D
The damage is done. The prodigal son is too late.
    Em                  G           D
Old doors are closed but he's always open,
          C9              D
To relive time in his mind.
Oh Billy.

Em G D x2

Listen to the song to get most of the strumming down, but other wise it is up to you how you play it.
