Artist: Deaf Havana
Song: Hunstanton Pier

Standard Tuning


These are the basic chords for the whole song.

I would recommend that you play around with different shapes and see what you think sounds best.

For example, I play:

 Dsus2    G5      Bm      A       Em      C5
e|-0-|  e|-0-|  e|-2-|  e|-0-|  e|-0-|  e|-X-|
B|-3-|  B|-3-|  B|-3-|  B|-2-|  B|-0-|  B|-x-|
G|-2-|  G|-0-|  G|-4-|  G|-2-|  G|-0-|  G|-5-|
D|-0-|  D|-0-|  D|-4-|  D|-2-|  D|-2-|  D|-5-|
A|-0-|  A|-x-|  A|-2-|  A|-0-|  A|-2-|  A|-3-|
E|-x-|  E|-3-|  E|-x-|  E|-x-|  E|-x-|  E|-x-|

This gives it an acoustic style.



D, G, D, G

       D                  G                             Bm
It was 2004 if I'm not mistaken, when the poison hit my lips
      A                   G
And I haven't looked back since
      D                              G
I had friends back then and a PMA to match,
                         Bm              A                            G
we were young and out of touch with the things we'd grow up to hate so much,
      D
in time.

D, G, D, G

             D                                G 
Back when my hair was long and Phil was still alive
                            Bm             A                 G
We spent our days trying to speak, to the girls that left us weak
            D                                         G       
But now I'm ageing badly and my friends' been laid to rest
                        Bm              A              G
And the ones who let us in are pushing prams or raising twins.

   A                         Bm                      G         D
To tell you the truth I'd be lying if I said I didn't hate the city
  A                     Bm                   G              A   
I need the pier and the fresh sea air of the town that made me.

Bm, A (The timing for this bit is awkward so listen to the track carefully)

G     D               A                Bm     A              G
In my heart and in my soul are all the people that I've known
G        D         A
And the places I’ve called home
G         D              A                     Bm       A          G
But in my head and in my mind they're all just things I left behind
G         D               A                               
Reminders of the changing times, and these ageing bones of mine.

D, G, D, G

D                                     G
Lee and me were schooled in a tourist town
                              Bm
With less culture than Jeremy Kyle
       A                      G
But it stole our hearts for a while
    D                                     G
And most weekends I found nothing but regret
                      Bm
Between many a drunk girls' legs
       A                 G
And in many a strangers' bed.

   A                         Bm                      G         D
To tell you the truth I'd be lying if I said I didn't hate the city
  A                     Bm                   G              A   
I need the pier and the fresh sea air of the town that made me

Bm    A
  Who I am.

G     D               A                Bm     A              G
In my heart and in my soul are all the people that I've known
G        D         A
And the places I've called home
G         D              A                     Bm       A          G
But in my head and in my mind they're all just things I left behind
G         D               A                               
Reminders of the changing times, and these ageing bones of mine.

Bm, G, Bm, G
Bm                                    G
The one’s who haven’t died or started families
                     D                               A
Are all just working building sites or battling with university fees
      Bm                          G
And a girl I used to know made me promise once
                Em       D           C
I wonder if she kept it,

G, D, A

   Bm     A       G       D      A
or if she even remembers it. 

G     D               A                Bm     A              G
In my heart and in my soul are all the people that I've known
G        D         A
And the places I've called home
G         D              A                     Bm       A          G
But in my head and in my mind they're all just things I left behind
G         D               A                               
Reminders of the changing times, and these ageing bones of mine.

G, D, A, Bm, A, G

G, D, A
