Intro:

G(III)/F#m/D5/A5/riff
G(III)/F#m/Bm(VII)/A(V)/riff
G(III)/F#m/D5/A5/riff   A

Verse 1:

    D   A            D                  Bm      F#m          G           D
And you     were right to bide your time and not buy into my misery

         G                     F#m
Well the good things are never free

       Em             F#m              G(III)  F#m Bm(VII) A(V)   A(V)
Do the colours of the rainbow look the same to everyone?


Verse 2:

    D  A          D                Bm      F#m   G            D
And I     was rushing round in circles for a reason to believe

         G                   F#m
Wipe the slime from off your sleeve

          Em            F#m               G(III) F#m Bm(VII) A(V)   A(V)
You could follow me for weeks and I'm not going  anywhere


Break 1:

Em                Bm/F#            A
   Sometimes it's hard to love someone

Em           Bm/F#             A
   Until the day that they are gone

Verse 3:

    D  A          D               Bm    F#m           G              D
And I    just had a dream the other night I was married to the Queen

      G                F#m                Bm              A
And Madonna lived next door,  I think she took a shine to me

        G                   F#m       Em              F#m
And the kids were all grown up, but I had to turn her down

            G        F#m   Bm(VII) A(V)
Cause I was still in love with you


Chorus:

    G(III)    F#m D5 A5/riff
I'm turning Madonna down

    G(III)     F#m  Bm(VII) A(V)/riff
I'm calling it my  best    move

           G(III)    F#m   D5  A5/riff   A
I'll get a ticket to what you need


Break 2:

F#m  Bm  G  F#m  Bm  A    x2   A


Verse 4:

D  A    D    Bm      F#m             G             D
I     remember doing nothing on the night sinatra died

        G                      F#m
And the night Geoff   Buckley  died

        Bm                    A
And the night Kurt    Cobain died

        G                    F#m
And the night John    Lennon died

My suggestions for extendeding the verse (as seen on BBC TV Top of The Pops):

John Bonham
Frank Zappa
Jimi Hendrix
Duane Allman
George Harrison
Marvin Gaye
Bob Marley
Elvis Presley


    Em              F#m              G         F#m Bm(VII) A(V)
I remember I stayed up to watch the news with everyone


Chorus:

    G(III)     F#m  D5 A5/riff
And that was a lot of nights

    G(III)     F#m  Bm(VII) A(V)/riff
And that was a lot of      lads

           G(III)    F#m   D5   A5/riff
Who lost a ticket to what they need

Verse 5:

    D  A      D    Bm      F#m                     G                D
And I     was busy finding answers while you just got on with real life,

       G                 F#m
Always hoped you'd be my wife,

      Bm              A            Em          F#m
But I never found the time for the question to arrive,

          G         F#m Bm(V) A(V)
I just disguised it in a song


Verse 6:

    D    A       D     Bm        F#m
And songs    are never quite the answer

       G               D             G            F#m
Just a soundtrack to a life, that is over all too soon

         Em               F#m
Helps to turn the days to night

            G         F#m  Bm(VII) A(V)
While I was wrong and you were right


Chorus:

    G(III)     F#m D5  A5/riff
And this was a lesson learned,

    G(III)   F#m Bm(VII) A(V)/riff
I'm happy to be your    fool,

            G(III)     F#m   D5  A5/riff
And get you tickets to what you need


Verse 7:  (Whistled)

D  A  D  Bm  F#m  G  D  G  F#m  Em  F#m

G  F#m  Bm(VII)  A(V)


Chorus:

    G(III)      F#m     D5   A5/riff
I'm turning the lights down low

    G(III)   F#m   Bm(VII) A(V)/riff
I'm ready to make my move

             G(III)    F#m    D5 A5     D
I'll get you tickets to what you neeeee-eeeed
