This is a really easy song to play but also quite fun. The other 2 tabs for this
song are wrong, so I'm going to put you all out of your misery & give you a 100%
accurate version. Enjoy!

Capo 2nd Fret (all chords played as relative to the capo)

Standard Tuning


G G C D (repeat once)

[Verse 1]
G                        C        D          
Dont start that talking, I could talk all ni..ight
G                        C         B7                   Em
My mind is sleepwalking, while im putting the world to right
                A           Em           A           D
Called careers information, have you got yourself an occu..(pation)


G                C      D       G                C        D            
Olivers Army is here to sta..y, Olivers Army are on their wa..y,
G           D      Em   D      C     G    D    G
And I would rather be anywhere else, than here today


[Verse 2]

There was a Checkpoint Charlie, he didn't crack a smile,
But it's no laughing party, when you've been on the murder mile,
Only takes one itchy trigger, one more widow, once less white nigger


F#m                    E      D         Db        
Hong Kong is up for grabs, London is full of Arabs,
B7             E          D              E
We could be in Palestine, overrun by the Chinese Line,
         D                            E                    E
With the boys from the Mersey and the Thames and the Tyne.

A                      D          E     
But there's no danger, it's a professional career,
A                              D              Db
Though it can be arranged with just a word in Mr Churchill's ear,
                 B7                        F#m
If you're out of luck, or if you're out of work,
                B7   E     A     D    E
We can send you to Johannesburg
A               D       E     A                D        E      A
Olivers Army is here to stay, Olivers Army are on their way,
Amaj7       F#m       E        D    A/C#  E   A
And I would rather be anywhere else than here today  
Amaj7       F#m       E        D    A/C#  E   A
And I would rather be anywhere else than here today  


A A D E (repeat to fade)
