Here's Billy Braggs "A Lover Sings" off of Back to Basics.
Its done in Billy's typical muting/loud rhythm style that
you have to listen to to do correctly.  Concentrate on the bass
strings in the G  Em and C  Am patterns.   The ending chords might
be a little suspect.

Intro G  Em

*verse 1*

G       Em    G            Em
You and I are victims of a love

     G      Em             G    Em
That lost a lot in the translation

C      Am               C           Am
When I think of all the time that I spent

                            G        Em  G   Em
Sitting on the edge of your bed in anticipation

G* D               D  Em*
      Of you giving       and us living in sin


*verse 2 - same*
A hot day, the smell of hairspray
And the sound of a shower running softly
It's things like this that remind me how I felt
The first time you came back for coffee
The way you took it, amazed me


G  Em                  G  Em
    Walking in the park    kissing in the dark

G Em                               C  Am
   And my head against your pillow

C             Am      G   Em    G   Em
Late at night a lover sings

D                Em          C*         G  Em  G Em
Adam and Eve are finding out all about love

      D                Em          C*        G  Em  G Em
I say Adam and Eve are finding out all about love


*verse 3 - same as other two*
There is no real substitute
For a ball struck squarely and firmly
And you're the kind of girl who wants to
Open up the bottle of pop
Too early in the journey
Our love went flat just like that

*verse 4 - again same*
It doesn't matter the colour of the car
But what goes on beneath the bonnet
Is there a flag that flies above your heart
And is my name writ there upon it
Wedding cake and toothache
Equals love and pain

G Em                  G Em
  Walking in the park    kissing on the carpet

G  Em
   And your tights around your ankles

C Am  C              Am        G            Em     G  Em
      Late at night a lover thinks of these things

D                Em          C*        G    Em  G  Em
Adam and Eve are finding out all about love

      D                Em          C*        G   Em  G  Em
I say Adam and Eve are finding out all about love

D                Em          C*
Adam and Eve are finding out all about

D                Em          C*
Adam and Eve are finding out all about

   D                 Em          C*              G  Em    C
Teresa and Steve are finding out all about love

G   Em   C
G   Em   C
G   Em   C   Am   Em   G
