Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Grace Petrie Overheard From the Whatever's Left album.

Capo 2 

It can be played without a capo, but the run down from G to C in the chorus is difficult to play without one
as it becomes A through A/g# to D.

The F# in the chorus and bridge is hard to make out: it may be a full chord, played as a bass in the Em
chord, or just as a bass note on its own.

The strumming pattern for the verses is:

   1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 
||:u---------d-u-d|u---------d-u-d:||

For example:

   1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 
||:Em---------C-C-C|G---------C-C-C:||

As the song progresses more strums are put in in various ways, but keeping the &-4-&-1 beat.


[Intro]

|C Em   |C G  | x6


[Verse]

C            Em
How have you been
     C      G
Its been a long time
      C        Em
Since you been in
          C        G
I've not seen you 'round
    C            Em
And how's your work
    C           G
And how's your singing
          C       Em
I've been looking out
C         G
For your name


[Chorus]

          D                   Em
And then your tongue slips and my throat sticks
     C                 G      G/F#
And our friendship is just so sensitive
     C                 G
And racist jokes from funny blokes
     D                   Em      F#
You know some folks are just so sensitive
    C             G          D 
And I wish I had argued but you're the one
     Em      F#m         C
with my throat to a blade 
      Am           B   C     D
Yeah long live the P - C brigade


[Verse]

N.C           Em
And I think
        C       G
You're quite a nice guy
C      Em
And I think
           C   G
You quite like me too
C       Em
And I'm sure
       C        G
The idea that you've hurt me
C         Em         C       G
    Would be embarrising to you


[Bridge]

         D        Em                 C        G
And its not your fault that I didn't call you out
            D      Em   F#m     C
And ask you not to use that word
            C (ringing)
But I think all that would achieve
              G (ringing)
Is next time you would check to see
             N.C.
You're not overheard

|  Em   |C G   |
|C Em   |C G   | x3


[Verse]

     C            Em
And how have you been
     C      G
Its been a long time
       C       Em
since you been in
          C        G
I've not seen you 'round
    C          Em
And how's your work
     C       G
Yeah how you keeping?
     C    Em
Same old sa-ame old
         C      G
We gotta make a pound


[Chorus]

          D                   Em
But then your tongue slips and my throat sticks
     C                 G      G/F#
And our friendship is just so sensitive
     C                 G
And racist jokes from funny blokes
     D                   Em      F#
You know some folks are just so sensitive
    C              G
And I wish I could tell you why
    D                 Em      F#        C
the things   that you say make me afraid
      Am           B   C     D
Yeah long live the P - C brigade


[Verse]

N.C.          Em
And I think
        C       G
You're quite a nice guy
C      Em
And I think
           C   G
You quite like me too
C       Em
And I'm sure
       C        G
The idea that you've hurt me
C         Em         C       G
    Would be embarrising to you


[Bridge]

         D        Em                 C        G
And its not your fault that I didn't call you out
            D      Em   F#m     C
And ask you not to use that word
            C (let it ring)
But I think all that would achieve
              G (let it ring)
Is next time you would check to see
             N.C. 
You're not overheard
