Tumbling Down
Steve Harley

[Verse 1]
D              A            Bm           A            G     D      A
Gee, but it's hard when one lowers one's guard to the vultures 
    D      A           Bm        A                G     D   A
Now me I regard it's a torturous hardship that smoulders 
       Bm          G       A
Like a peppermint eaten away 
       Bm              G          A
Will I fight, will I swagger or sway? 
D           A         Bm           A       G     D      A
Hee hee, my lady, she cries like a baby to scolders 
                 D   A   Bm
See her tumbling down
A        G      D  A
Tumbling down
 
[Verse 2]
D           A             Bm       A       G    D     A
Hail to the monkey, we're having a funky reunion 
D          A            Bm        A          G   D    A
Wasted and sunk, he can only have Sunday communion 
       Bm       G             A
He got nicotine stains in his eyes 
       Bm         G               A
He got nothing to protect but his pride 
    D           A          Bm          A            G    D    A
Oh! smother the kiss or be drownded in blissful confusion 
                D   A   Bm
See it tumbling down
A        G      D   A
Tumbling down 

[Verse 3]
D           A             Bm       A       G    D     A
Juvenile tale, see the Titanic sail into Brighton
D          A            Bm        A              G      D     A
The Hemingway stacatto, the tragic bravado can frighten.
       Bm       G             A
To be here there and everywhere’s fine
       Bm         G               A
But do you have to be so swift all the time?
    D           A        Bm            A      G  D    A
Deliver the dawn to the Moulin Rouge on the horizon
                D   A   Bm
Watch it tumbling down
A        G      D   A
Tumbling down (Repeat) 

[Verse 4]
D    A    Bm                 A           G        D     A
Our dear, look what they’ve done to the blues, blues, blues
D    A    Bm                 A           G        D     A
Our dear, look what they’ve done to the blues, blues, blues
D    A    Bm                 A           G        D     A
Our dear, look what they’ve done to the blues, blues, blues

Repeat till bored
