Blur - "This Is A Low" (From the album "Parklife")

A lovely song that I couldn't wait to get the chords for so I could
play it.  Enjoy!

(sorry I couldn't pick out the intro...)

E     Bm         A              C#m
And into the sea goes pretty England and me

C	 	  Bm	     E
Around the Bay of Biscay and back for tea

E		       Bm
Hitting traffic on the dogger bank

A			C#m
Up the Thames to find a taxi rank

C		    Bm	     E
Sail on by with the tide and fall asleep

(and the radio says...)

E	  D	E	     Am
This is a low...but it won't hurt you

E	     D	E	       Am	  Bm
When you're alone...it will be there when you

C		Bm     E
Finding ways to stay solo

E		       Bm
On the tyne, forth and cromarty

A		     C#m
There's a low in the high 40's

      C			 Bm
(and) Saturday's locked away on the pier

Not fast enough dear

E      Bm	   A		   C#m
On the malin head, blackneel looks blue and red

        C		   Bm
And the queen, she's gone `round the bend

Jumped off Land's End

(repeat chorus, then middle, then repeat chorus 2x)

Not bad at all. FWIW you can spoof the into by playing the following chord sequence:

Em F#m G A

nice tabs but there are a couple of little mistakes.

there should be a Bm (over the you) after the Am in the first line of the chorus (this is a low, but it won't hurt you), much like the second line.

and the chorus ends with a Bm7 (not Bm) followed by the E (... stay solo).

I looked up the album sleeve of Parklife for the chords, so i'm pretty sure of my corrections.

Happy guitar playing. :)
