Stevens, Fowley - Portobello Road
Transcribed by Michael F Sullivan

*A lot of this is played arpeggio but it really wouldn't be very
useful to transcribe it all here.  Just fool around with the
chords on your own.


Intro

(while whistling)

E-----------------------------------------------------------|
B-----------------------------------------------------------|
G-------5-----5-----------4-----5-----5-----5---------------|
D-----------------------------------------------------------|
A----3-----3-----3--3--2-----3-----3-----3------------------|
E-----------------------------------------------------------|

Part A.

C            F       G       C

Getting hung up all day on smiles

	     F          G        C

Walking down Portobello Road for miles

	   F		 G

Greeting strangers in Indian boots

F		G

Yellow ties and old brown suits

Am		   G

Growing old is my only dan - ger

Part B.

C       F           G      C

Cuckoo clocks and plastic socks

	       F   G       C

Lampshades of old antique leather

               F          G      Am

Nothing looks weird, not even a beard

F		   G

Or the boots made out of feathers

F       C

I keep walking miles

       F               C

'til I feel a broom beneath my feet

F       C

Or the hawking eyes

        G                G7

Of an old stuffed bull across the street

	       F           G       C

Nothing's the same if you see it again

	  F      G       C

It'll be broken down to litter

            F       G       Am

Oh and the clothes everyone knows

F                     G

That that dress will never fit her

Part C.

C            F       G       C

     (whistling...)

	     F          G        C

     (...whistling...)

F       G 	Am

     (...more whistling)

F F  G G G G G G G G G G G G

     (all strummed downward quickly)

Repeat parts A and B and then part A again with the last line:

Am                 G          C   F G C

Growing old is my only dan - ger

Outro (while whistling)

G---------0-----2-----0-------------------------------------|
D------2-----3--------------2-------------------------------|
A---3--------------------3-----3----------------------------|
E------------------3----------------------------------------|
