Tune guitar to open D

From low to high : DADF#AD


Please note that the strumming pattern is only approximate. The shapes
are the main thing - I've indicated roughly how many times each is
strummed but this isn't 100% accurate.

The same with the words - the changes should match up fairly well with
the words but listen to the record to get the detail.

/ means slide

      All the people at this party they got a lot of style

D------12--12----0----0-----10-------------10--10---|
A------12--12----0----0-----10-------------10--10---|
F#-----12--12----0----0-----10-------------10--10---|

A------12--12----0----0-----10-------------10--10---|
D------12--12----0----0-----10-------------10--10---|

  They got stamps of many countries they got passport smiles

 Some are friendly, some are cutting, some are watching it from the wings

D-----------0----0--0--0---0--0----------0----------0--0--------------|
A-----------0----0--0--0---0--0----------0----------0--0--------------|
F#----------1/3--3--3--3---1--0----------1----------1--1--------------|
D-----------2/4--4--4--4---2--0----------2----------2--2--------------|
A----------------------------------------0----------0--0--------------|
D---------------------------------------------------------------------|

  Some are standing in the centre giving to get something


The rest follows almost exactly the same pattern - the only real
difference is at the end with the lines 'laughing it all away' :


D---0-------0---0-----0--0-------0----0--0--------0---0-0-0-0-0--0----|
A---0-------0---0-----0--0-------0----0--0--------0---0-0-0-0-0--0----|
F#--1-------1---0-----0--0-------1----1--1--------1/3-3-3-3-1-0--1----|
D---2-------2---9-----9--9-------2----2--2--------2/4-4-4-4-2-0--2----|
A---0-------0---9-----9--9-------2----2--2-----------------------0----|
D---------------9-----9--9-------2----2--2----------------------------|

Laughing it all  away -    ay - ay  -      ay-ay-ay

This repeats three times (I think) then it goes :


D----5-----------3---0-----------|
A----5-----------3---0-----------|
F#---5-----------3---0-----------|
D----5-----------3---0-----------|
A----5-----------3---0-----------|
D----5-----------3---0-----------|

  Laughing  it  all    away

That's all !

Enjoy
