VERSE 1
********
      G                Em
I was clearing out the attic 
       C                   D
When I found this battered case 
         B7                    Em
With its handle broke and that old word ‘folk’ 
      A7                D
Still stencilled on its face 
         B7                 Em
Now it's cobwebbed and it's dusty 
       A7              D
But it takes me to the past 
           G              Em
And it was Nineteen-sixty-nine 
         C                D
I opened this guitar case last 


------------------
CHORUS
*******
               C                G
When they said try your luck in London 
       C         G/B     D
That's where the rainbow ends 
    C             G
But I got lost in lonely London 
D            Em
With so many friends 
      C       G
I got lost in lonely London 
D7                G     Em  C  D
Where the rainbow ends 


------------------
VERSE 2
********
                G                 Em
You should have seen the big man, Alex 
        C            D
When he sang us up a storm 
       B7                     Em
He had heart and soul, and he set the goal 
       A7           D
If you wanted to perform 
      B7              Em
So, I bought myself a Gibson
         A7           D
Just the same as Alex had 
      G                   Em
And I practised night and day 
        C                D
Until I drove my parents mad


------------------
CHORUS
*******
              C                G
And they said try your luck in London 
       C         G/B     D
That's where the rainbow ends 
    C             G
But I got lost in lonely London 
D            Em
With so many friends 
      C              G
I got lost in lonely London 
D7                G
Where the rainbow ends 


------------------
BRIDGE
*******
       Em
I knew every Seeger ballad 
       D
I knew every Campbell song 
      Em
And I sang them right, every day and night
              A7               D
Till I'd been on that road too long 
                  Em
'Cause there were others out there working 
        D
Singing choruses galore 
              Am
But there was only one called Alex 
        D7                      G  D/F#
We were all just one clone more 


------------------
VERSE 3
********
     G                 Em
So I climbed up to the attic 
          C                 D
With this bent and battered case 
    B7                 Em
Its handle broke, that old word ‘folk’ 
      A7               D
Still stenciled on its face 
         B7                Em
Now it's been for too long silent 
         A7              D
With its memories of the past 
        G               Em
So it's time it went to someone 
          C               D
Who could make it sing at last 


------------------
CHORUS
*******
    C                G
So, try your luck in London 
       C         G/B     D
That's where the rainbow ends 
    C                 G
But don't got lost in lonely London 
D            Em
With so many friends 
C                 G
Don't got lost in lonely London 
D7                G 
Where the rainbow ends 


------------------
CHORUS
*******
C                G
Try your luck in London 
       C         G/B     D
That's where the rainbow ends 
    C                 G
But don't got lost in lonely London 
D            Em
With so many friends 
C                 G
Don't got lost in lonely London 
D7                C
Where the rainbow ends 
D7                G      C  G
Where the rainbow ends
