"Come Back To Camden"
set tempo
Ok here are the chords for Come Back To Camden from Morrissey. If you think
its wrong let me know. Isn't though. 

I've written it in these keys because its easier to play so tune it up so the
first note intro is to your C. otherwise you're playing lots of bar chords
which don't sound too good (yep there still are some i know!).
The chord I've called B/G*  is from thinnest to thickest.... x 0 0 1 2 x
(where "x" means don't play). This is a piano song though so bear that in
mind, I suggest arpegio-ing the 4 notes in this chord, sounds nicer
and also sounds good if on the "F"'s you sometimes play the open top "e" -
ie.... 0 1 2 3 3 x  especially right at the end.

Workings out dedicated to Kat La Chatte from james g, who first played me
the song...couldn't find the tabs anywhere(!) Think its the first tab for
this anywhere....anyways....sorry had to re-format/arrange it like this to
submit it...

stop messin' 'bout in foreign lands and Come back to camden, kitty...

C              F               C                      
There is something I wanted to tell you, 
             F                     C
It's so funny you'll kill yourself laughing
         F         C             Amin                         
But then I, I look around, And I remember that I am 

 D     Fmin         Emin         B/G*
alone, Alone. For evermore
C               F           C                    
The tile yard all along the railings, Up a 

F                       C
discoloured dark brown staircase
            F                 C                                
Here you'll find, despair and I, Calling to 

Amin                       D        Fmin
you with what's left of my heart, My heart,  

Emin                 B/G*
For   EVermore

G#             C#                       G#               
      Drinking tea with the taste of the Thames, 

  C#                       G# 
Sullenly on a chair on the pavement
            C#                    G#                            
Here you'll find, my thoughts and I, And here is 

    Fmin                   Bb
the very last plea from my heart

C#min         Cmin        B/G*
My heart. For evermore, 

E                   A                  E
         Where taxi drivers never stop talking
      A                    E                              
Under slate grey Victorian sky, Here you will 

A                 E
find, despair and I
And here I am every last inch of me is 

F#     Amin         Abmin         B/G*
yours, Yours, For evermore

C                F                        C                           
            Your leg came to rest against mine, 

         F                         C
Then you lounged with knees up and apart
             F         C    Amin  D                 
And me and my heart, we knew,         

Fmin              Emin    B/G*
We just knew, For evermore

C                F                  C                      
      Where taxi drivers never stop talking, 
     F                    C
Underslate grey Victorian sky
            F                  C                                 
Here you'll find, my heart and I, And still we say 
Amin       D            Fmin
come back, Come back to Camden
Emin   B/G*     C F       C    F        C    F       C
And I'll be good, I'll be good I'll be good, I'll be good

Thank you for suggesting the open E on the F chord. Genius.

this "B/G" is in fact a Em7Maj (E0 2 1 0 0 0e)
