Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
I wasn't 100 percent sure on the lyrics when working out the chords, so I checked out a
lyirc sites but they all contained lines that just don't sound right to me when I hear
song. But having listened to it more carefully, I've come up with what I think are
lyrics below - at least closer than any of the lyric sites I consulted.

Anyway, the chords are easy and it's a fun song to play and sing along to. Enjoy

Intro:

G  D  G

Verse 1:
   C            Em
It must be hard ringing the bells
   G                      D       C
Of doors that don't swing wide anymore
                Em
It must be hard hearing the sound
   G             D           C
Of voices just inside of the door

Chorus 1:
  C                Em        Am
A man who couldn't hold your coat
      C             Em  Am
Who's hung on every anicdote
      G            D                    Em
So it must be hard watching the fellows gloat
      C

Verse 2:
   C            Em                  G
It must be hard seeing the same old crowd
              D         C
Just pass you by in the street
                  Em
It must be tough knowing your stuff
      G         D       C
Could only horrify the elite

Chorus 2:
    C            Em      Am
You cut off everyone you know
C                    Em       Am
Boy you tell `em all where to go
       G             D                  Em
Now it must be hard getting the same heave-ho
      C
Ballantines

Bridge:
      F                     C
Well, patrons at the bar in Lexington Kentucky
    F                          C
Who sprung for every drink you downed
     F                            C
With things the way they are it's not that kind of party
   Bb                            Am
If what you've got might just be good

Solo: (Do do do...)

C  Em  Am (x3)
F  D

Chorus 3:
    C                 Em      Am
And fuck-ups won't be getting thin
C                  Em         Am
Seeing the kind of jam you're in
           G                   D               Em
Though the angels dance on the head of another pin
      C      Am
Ballantines
      C      Am
Ballantines
       G  D Em
Ballant-i-i-ines

End with:

G D G
