Running the streets

Cadd9         G/B

Rough toys
Under the sheets
Nobody knows her
Rough boys
Don't walk away
I very nearly missed you
Tough boys
Come over here
I want to bite and kiss you

A F C G D A D/A A

I wanna see what I can find

Tough kid
Take a bottle of wine
when your deal is broken
Ten quid
She's so easy to blind
Not a word is spoken
Rough boys
Don't walk away
I feel pretty blissed here
Tough boy
I wanna carry you home
You got pretty pissed dear

Gonna get inside you
D
Gonna get inside....your bitter mind

A

I wanna see what I can find
Rough boys
Don't walk away
I wanna buy your leather
Make noise
Try and talk me away
We can't be seen together
Tough kids
What can I do?
I'm so pale and weedy
Rough fits
In my hush puppy shoes
But I'm still pleadin'; bleedin',
 needin', fightin', winin', chimin'

D   Cadd9  G/B   A  Asus  A

I wanna see what I can find
Tough boys
Running the streets
Come a little closer
Rough toys
Under the sheets
Nobody knows her
Rough boys
Don't you walk away
I very nearly missed you
Tough boys
Come over here
I want to bite and kiss you

The intro is played 0-7-3-5 on the d-g-b-e. Then move that shape down to 0-5-1-3. Then up to 0-9-5-7. The a D chord then the D with your pinky on the 3rd fret. Forget the chord name. If you watch Pete in the rough boys video, this is how he plays it.
