This another Song of the 1989 album "waking hours" by Del Amitri.
Beside "this side of morning" and "nothing ever happens" it is one
of my favourites. I figured it out by ear, so it might be different
from the record. I post it anyway...


Some hints for the notation:

1. ===    hold note
2. ==3==  triplet

(strum from now on)

 F#        E
away Jimmy Blue

            F#                       E
Before your small, small town turns around


             B
and swallows you.

        B              E
A drunk mother was the clue

           B                         E
Before the legendary things that you do

           B                  E
Behind the carnival tent with mud on your face

           B                E
behind the old glue factory too

        F#         E
So move away Jimmy Blue

            F#                       E
before your small, small town turns around

             B
and swallows you.

B                    E
  Wet feet visit the same old places

B                 E
  Finding nothing new

       B                      E
It's a binful of tissues from made-up faces

    B                       E
in a townfull of nothing to do

  F#                 E
A lovematch with the moon

     F#                   E
in a layby, while insects hum
                       F#                   E
and you got put in the darkness of a womans womb

      B    E B E
Jimmy Blue


        B     E
So move away, yeh

        B     E
So move away, yeh

         B         E
So move away Jimmy Blue

           F#                        E
before your small, small town turns around

and swallows


         ==3==  ==3==                   ==3==  ==3==

Substituted chords as follows:

F# = A

E = Em7

B = D

Sounded ok with record (to my ears anyways)!
