Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Billy Bragg's "A New England".  You'll have to get the rhythm/feel of this
yourself... a lot of it is palm muted, etc, but then he hits chords pretty
hard and open... so, have fun!

the main chords are F and F with an E bass... mute it and use your pointer
for the bass string, dropping to an open E as necessary... most of the chords
are the E-Bar... slide between them... and play with it!


[Verse]

F F/E(1fr)
I was twenty-one years when I wrote this song
 -->C(8fr)            -->Dm(10fr)
I'm twenty-two now but I won't be for long
Bb(6)                            F(1)
People ask me when will you grow up to be a man
         -->C(8)                          Bb(6)                F F/E...
But all the girls I loved at school are already pushing prams

I loved you then as I love you still
Though I put you on a pedestal, I put you on the pill
I don't feel bad about letting you go
I just feel bad about letting you know


[Chorus]

Bb(6)              Am(5)      F(1)
   I don't want to change the world
F                   F/E      Dm(5)
   I'm not looking for A New England
            Bb                  Am    C Csus4 C
   I'm just looking for another girl

   I don't want to change the world
   I'm not looking for A New England
            Bb           C      F
   I'm just looking for another girl


[Verse] 

I loved the words you wrote to me
but that was bloody yesterday
I can't survive on what you send
Everytime you need a friend
I saw two shooting stars last night
I wished on them but they were only sattelites
Is It wrong to wish on space hardware?
I wish I wish I wish you'd care


[Chorus]

Bb(6)              Am(5)      F(1)
   I don't want to change the world
F                   F/E      Dm(5)
   I'm not looking for A New England
            Bb                  Am    C Csus4 C
   I'm just looking for another girl

   I don't want to change the world
   I'm not looking for A New England
            Bb           C      F
   I'm just looking for another girl


[Ending]

with F(8fr)/C(8)/Bb(6)/C(8). last chord is an Fmaj7.
