McFLY - The Ballad Of Paul K

'The Ballad of Paul K' is the best McFly song ever! Im a guitarist with no more
than 2 and a half years experience so any feedback is good.  Hope you like!

Capo 2nd fret

D                       Dsus2  D
He's drinking cold Corona
Bm          Bsus2 Bm  Bsus2 Bm (hammer on these chords)
Feels like is getting older
Em               A7
Now and noticing how he's finding
D                         Dsus2  D
Grey hairs left in the shower
Bm
Tattoos fade by the hour
Em                  A7
And he can't understand these feelings

Bridge

G                       A7
Why life is getting him down
	                D
He used to smile now he frowns
    F#7   Bm    (then this:x04420)
And cries inside
	Em
Its been this way for a while
    E7                           A7
And he can't seem to put things right

And you're losing your mind
F#7                    Bm     	      D        Em

He doesn't like to mention
Bm          Bsus2 Bm  Bsus2 Bm (hammer on these chords)
Applying for his pension
Em               A7
So his children don't know he's heading
D                    Dsus2  D
Into a mid-life crisis
Bm
He cant afford the prices for
Em                  A7
The new kitchen floor he's buying

G                       A7
He's been a drunk all his life
	                D
Two kids, a dog and a wife
    F#7   Bm    (then this:x04420)
He doesn't know
	Em
And in the daytime he just sits
    E7                           A7
and watches television shows

D             D7     G    G/F#     Em
When life has been unkind
	     E7         A7      (then: XX2000)
And you're losing your mind
F#7                    Bm     	      D        Em
Look in the mirror afraid of what you'll find
              Gm
It feels like time's not on your side

Middle:

Emaj7  (x79897)             ? (X798107
Dont know why but somehow
	                Emaj7
The ones you love you hate now,
        Bm         E
You feel down and blue
           C#m
Look at what you've thrown away
           E
They stood beside you all the way

I think that the D should be G in the chorus - like this:
Look in the mirror afraid of what you'll [G] find

And in the first line of the chorus G/F# should be A/C# I think..

But besides that it's pretty good.. :)
